Paula Deen: The Collision between Reality and Reality TV

Kim and John weigh in on the meltdown of the Paula Deen empire. The former Food Network host, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2007, has lost her job there after a video-taped deposition emerged showing her saying the N-word. The video was part of a lawsuit brought against her by an employee at one of her restaurants, but it's had a major fall-out in the rest of Deen's multi-million dollar empire. She's lost lucrative deals with Target, Wal-Mart and the drug company Novo-Nordisk.
