SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) Paula Deen has apologized, but that came too late for The Food Network. The celebrity chef posted two videos begging forgiveness from fans and critics troubled by her admission in a legal deposition to having used racial slurs in the past.

The Food Network made Deen a star with ``Paula's Home Cooking'' in 2002, but today issued a short statement saying it's decided not to renew Deen's contract when it expires at the end of this month.
