Everyone's favorite butter-loving, down south Food Network personality had a major fall from grace after she acknowledged using the N-word multiple times during a deposition for a lawsuit from a former employee. Worse than that, she also admitted she once thought about having a plantation-style wedding with black male servers. Her apology for the overt racism was too little too late, and she lost the public's affection as well as her contracts with Food Network, Walmart, Caesars Entertainment, Target, J.C. Penney and a number of other high profile businesses.
