The swirl around Paula Deen hasn't quite settled. As of press time, the cook's endorsement deals continued to wither after a deposition, in which Deen admitted using a racial epithet, went viral.

Among those who have abandoned the television and book star: Caesar's Entertainment, Food Network, Smithfield Hams, Wal-Mart and Ballantine Books. Standing by Deen as of this writing: drug maker Novo Nordisk, which put its relationship with her on hold, but has stopped short of ending it. Novo and Deen teamed up to promote the diabetes medication Victoza last year. Novo said that Deen's return has not yet been scheduled.
