West Chester-Based QVC Pressing “Pause” on Paula Deen

Several high-profile companies have already cut ties with the food world’s latest bete noire, Paula Deen. (No pun intended.) West Chester-based home shopping giant QVC, however, has been slower to react, however, refusing until now to make a decision one way or another. Last night, QVC CEO Mike George wrote a blog post informing fans of his decision.

For now, we have decided to take a pause. Paula won’t be appearing on any upcoming broadcasts and we will phase out her product assortment on our online sales channels over the next few months. We all think it’s important, at this moment, for Paula to concentrate on responding to the allegations against her and on her path forward.

How thoughtful of him. This may not be a “forever” decision, he said, because that’s not “how relationships work.”
