QVC isn’t dumping Paula Deen, per se, but they are so on a break.
Both parties posted letters to the public on Thursday in the wake of the celebrity chef's racism scandal, explaining the nature of their future relationship.
President Mike George wrote in his statement to viewers, “We owe you an answer. We too are troubled by what Paula has acknowledged saying."
"We’re also troubled by the allegations against her. We deeply believe, as you do, that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.”
"We have talked with Paula and her team extensively over the last several days, and have considered what is best for our customers, for Paula, and for QVC."
"For now, we have decided to take a pause.”
