wal mart decides to cut ties with paula deen

Paula Deen is losing business partners faster than you can say "Pass the butter, y'all!!"

Wal-Mart has become the latest company to cut their ties with the celebrity chef in the wake of her PR nightmare after she admitted to using the N-word!

The super-sized retail chain released a statement on their move, saying:

"We are ending our relationship with Paula Deen Enterprises and we will not place new orders beyond those already committed."

Ouch! Sounds like she'll have to find a new place to sell her butter!

Wal-Mart joins the Food Network and and Ceasars Casino as the latest company to make the wise decision to give the Paula the axe, and they probably wont be the last!

Looks like she picked the perfect time to hire Olivia Pope!

kellan lutz does op for walmart ad campaign(1)

Kellan Lutz needs to always be shirtless. For reals.

He and 30 Rock's Katrina Bowden stripped down to practically nothing for Op's Making Waves campaign, sold exclusively at Walmart, which is basically just a spread featuring two beautiful people wearing tiny little bathing suits as they do every day things like swimming, surfing, playing frisbee, biking, and so much more.

Honestly, Kellan could be sitting on a beach reading a newspaper as long as he has his shirt off!

Ahh, yes, he certainly is blessed, isn't he??

Take a look at more of the skin-baring shots (below)!
