FN had put a hold on her filming new shows since the debacle of the diabetes came out and made news. She withheld the information regarding her being diagnosed with diabetes for two years so she could sing a lucrative contract with the pharmaceutical company that was putting a new drug on the market. She was to be their spokesperson. During those two years she was still pushing those recipes and foods that would be devastating for diabetics to eat. It wasn't until after the news was made public that she was a diabetic did she start creating healthy recipes. Too little too late. And now this scandal on top of that. FN has to protect their brand. The fact that her contract was cancelled just two weeks before it expired tells me that they were not going to renew it anyway. Contract negotiations usually start months before the present one is due to expire. Not after.
This is how I feel...
She acted inappropriatly at some events. She should have had better sense then to speak her mind about things that may be considered racist.
She's in the public eye, she's lied several times. She said things in front of people and didn't think it would get out???
I loved her.... but now.... I just feel sorry for her. She'll be alright. She has her money and her supporters. But I'll pray for her and not judge her cause I'm not perfect myself. But as far as FN work letting her go..... Sometimes we have to face the consequences of our actions, whether we agree with them or not.
