Even MORE endorsements slip away from Paula Deen! The Westboro Baptist Church now takes aim at Taylor Swift! Does Heidi Klum use her kid’s hair for art projects? Plus, you won’t believe what Ke$ha is using for her new jewelry line… All these stories and more in today’s Dirty Laundry!
Paula Deen has now been dumped by Kmart and Sears. Yesterday Home Depot, Target, and QVC (said they were taking a pause) also jumped ship. Walgreen’s has said they will be phasing out her products. So what does she have left? JCPenney, Alice Travel, Ladies Candies, Hoffman Media, Random House, Metropolitan Cooking Expo, Springer Mountain Farms and Epicurean Butter.
And now TMZ is reporting that Paula is fighting back by filing legal docs in the lawsuit claiming the woman who’s suing her is trumping up racial allegations. Lisa Jackson — who was fired as manager of Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House — is asking for “damages based on racial harassment, claiming she’s African-American adjacent. As for Jackson’s proof she’s got African-American ties, she points to her partner’s biracial niece, whom Jackson claims is half Black.”
Paula’s documents claim that Jackson’s niece is NOT Black at all … not even a little. Paula says Jackson’s partner has now admitted the niece is Hispanic — NOT Black.
Paula isn’t the only one to lose more sponsorships today… NFL star Aaron Hernandez’ biggest sponsor PUMA has just dropped him today. A rep for PUMA tells TMZ, “PUMA has ended the relationship with athlete Aaron Hernandez in light of the current situation.”
Alec Baldwin made some homophobic slurs on twitter. A British reporter wrote a story that Baldwin’s wife was tweeting recipes and other things during James Gandolfini’s funeral. Well, Alec blasted the guy on twitter calling him “a toxic little queen.” Baldwin continued, “If (sic) put my foot up your f***ing ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much.”
Baldwin then called the reporter a “f***ing little bitch” several times and then threatened, “I’m gonna f**k you up.” After the rant he just quit twitter again.

Heidi Klum uses her kid’s hair for their art projects!!! “So two of my boys, they have big afros, and when I shaved them all down, I kept all the hair and I put it in a Ziploc bag. I keep everything! But then, I waited and I’m like, ‘I don’t know what I’m gonna do with this.’ It was so beautiful, this whole bag of afro: one for Henry, one for Johan. The next time they painted their faces, I glued all their hair around it, so it was like this three-dimensional painting. It’s their face!”
