According to Jamie Deen's Twitter account, his brother Bobby Deen is going to be competing on Iron Chef America. He tweeted Wednesday: "He's filming an episode of Iron Chef today!" Their mom Paula Deen might be out of the picture for the time being, but her sons are hanging on. Last month the Food Network immediately pulled Paula Deen's shows from its programming lineup and didn't renew her contract following her disastrously botched PR job in response to racist allegations. However, the execs at the Food Network kept her sons' shows on the air.
An insider says The Food Network plans to bring Paula Deen back "in a year or two, under different terms. Maybe some guest spots." Instead of completely distancing itself from the Deen clan — Deen and her many recipes still remain on the Food Network's website — the network appears to be carefully committing to a Paula Deen image rehabilitation strategy.
