(Newser) – QVC is apparently finished "reviewing" its relationship with Paula Deen in the wake of her n-word controversy, and not surprisingly, that review did not end with good news for Deen. Deen revealed in a statement yesterday that she and QVC have "agreed that it's best for me to step back ... and focus on setting things right," ABC News reports. In its own statement, the company's CEO says QVC is "troubled" by the controversy and has "decided to take a pause" and phase out her products. But could she be back? The statement hints at as much: "People deserve second chances." Sears and Kmart are no longer carrying her products either, they announced today, according to Fox News. Click to see who else has dumped her so far.
