Paula Deen’s Semi-Return to the Food Network Pushed to September

Although people anxiously thought that Paula Deen would be making a semi-return to the Food Network this weekend on her son’s show, Home for Dinner with Jamie Deen, the network suddenly announced that the slated episode has been pushed back to September, Savannah Now reports.

Though Jamie Deen tweeted yesterday that his mother was scheduled to show up in an episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Paula’s first restaurant The Bag Lady, turns out that the network had different ideas. Tweeted Deen:

Delish speculated that the episode may have been taped before Deen was fired from the network for That Racism Thing, You Know, That One.
