Caesars Cuts Ties with Embattled Southern Chef

Caesars Entertainment is just the latest company to cut ties with southern cook Paula Deen.

The company announced Wednesday that it had reached an agreement with Paula Deen Enterprises to end their business relationship. There are four Deen-themed restaurants at Caesars’ properties, none in Las Vegas. The company says it will rebrand the restaurants in the coming months.

The decision comes after the celebrity chef admitted to using racial slurs. The admissions came during a deposition for a lawsuit involving an employee.

Caesars joins Smithfield Foods, the Food Network and Wal-mart in severing ties with Deen. QVC and Sears say they are reviewing deals with Deen.

Ground was broken Wednesday for the Dinner in the Sky tower. When finished, the tower will suspend two open-air tables 180 feet in the air. The diners will be strapped to their chairs to enjoy a upscale dinner.

Dinner in the Sky is already established in 40 other countries. This will be the first one in the U.S. and the first one that uses a tower.
