“I have had the pleasure of being allowed into so many homes across the country and meeting people who have shared with me the most touching and personal stories,” Deen said. “This would not have been possible without the Food Network. Thank you again. Love and best dishes to all of ya’ll.”
Deen will be telling her side of the story during an interview Wednesday morning on the Today show. A rep for Deen did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
