And who wouldn't?
Let's be honest here — what kind of publicist would be in their right mind to stick around with someone who is so irresponsible and greedy??
It was Paula Deen's longtime publicist Nancy Assuncao, and she left her job at the beginning of December for "unknown reasons."
Those reasons, we're finding out, were the deal with Novo Nordisk.
“Although we had a great deal of fun along the way, I could not agree with the new business strategy going forward. Nonetheless, I wish them continued success.”
That's the professional way of saying, "You're willingly entering a shit-storm and I want nothing to do with it."
She did say she was going to continue to represent Deen's sons, but they decided that they'd go with their mom's new publicist instead.
Gotta support family, we guess.
Either way, it's now being reported that Deen also has high blood pressure and is going to make $6 million in two years from her Novo deal.
Stay classy, Paula!
