Paula Deen Loses Support from Target, Home Depot

Celebrity chef Paula Deen had another rough day Thursday. More companies continued to cut ties with Deen, including Target and Home Depot.

“A devastating domino effect for Paula Deen as she's dropped from deal after deal in the wake of the scandal surrounding her admitted past use of racial slurs,” Brown reports.

“Deen has hired a big gun to help restore her image damage control expert Judy Smith.” The move adds her to the list of Smith’s other notable clients: Michael Vick, Kobe Bryant and Monica Lewinsky. It's uncertain whether Deen will be able to restore her image and her empire.

CNN’s Pamela Brown reports.
