NEW YORK -- Paula Deen has been dropped by the Food Network and Wal-Mart, but book-buyers are standing by her.
As of Thursday morning, "Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Recipes, All Lightened Up," ranked No. 1 on Amazon.com. The book is scheduled for October. Another Deen book, "Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible," was at No. 13. Several other Deen books were out of stock.
Deen has faced increasing criticism since admitting that she used a racial slur. During a deposition in a discrimination lawsuit filed by an ex-employee, the chef admitted to using the N-word. The lawsuit also accuses Deen of using the slur when planning her brother's 2007 wedding, saying she wanted black servers in white coats, shorts and bow ties.
Deen says she doesn't recall using the word to describe waiters.
