Paula Deen cancels Pantages event, U.S. tour

Picture 35.pngFood Network chef and cookbook maven Paula Deen was booked into the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood on March 4. She has canceled that appearance and five others around the country, citing problems with the promoter. "What happened was simple: I’ve done so many of these wonderful shows in these past few years, but this time we were using a new company to produce them for me and, frankly, there were so many issues and logistical problems that I had no choice but to cancel this tour," she says on her website.
