(Newser) – Lookin' for some of them Paula Deen pots and pans, y'all? Act now, as in now, because QVC has "concerns" about "the unfortunate Paula Deen situation," and has "no immediate plans to have her appear" on its vaunted airwaves—which she uses to hawk aforementioned cookware. But the channel isn't exactly dropping her like a deep-fried potato, notes TMZ, saying in its statement that it is "closely monitoring these events and we are reviewing our business relationship with Ms. Deen." Food Network has already cut her loose, Lady's Brunch Burger or no.
