GONER: Paula Deens brand at Tunica.
  • GONER: Paula Deen's brand at Tunica.
I'd think that if there was any place it would still be safe to use Paula Deen as a promotional tool it would be an all-you-can-stuff buffet at a casino in the Mississippi Delta. Old times there and all.

But no ......

Caesars Entertainment Corporation announced it will rebrand the Paula Deen's Buffet at Harrah's in Tunica.

... "While we appreciate Paula's sincere apologies for statements she made in her past that she recently disclosed during a deposition given in response to a lawsuit, after thoughtful consideration of their impact, we have mutually decided that it is in the best interests of both parties to part ways at this time," said Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive vice president of communications and government affairs for Caesars Entertainment.

She had a tearful appearance on the Today Show this morning, by the way.

UPDATE: This is much bigger for Paula Deen. Walmart is giving her the heave-ho and will buy no more of her products after current orders are filled. Ouch.
