The walls of Paula Deen's world are crumbling all around her. After her racist testimony was revealed, Deen posted not one, but three weird apology videos on Friday afternoon, then the Food Network dropped her. A rep for the network told Eater National: "Food Network will not renew Paula Deen's contract when it expires at the end of this month." Deen then issued a brief statement about her termination. Her shows were scrubbed from the network this weekend, her restaurant was a ghost town, and the late night hosts had a field day with the drama.

Now, the Today show announces that Deen will be "showing up for exclusive interview on Wednesday." Head over to Eater National for a complete recap of the Deen drama from over the weekend.
