Paula Deen's appearance at Metropolitan Cooking Show canceled

There's disappointing news for local fans of celebrity chef Paula Deen. A November appearance at the Washington Convention Center is now canceled.

She'd been scheduled to appear at the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show. However, she will take part in a "Conversation with Paula Deen" type of event March 8th.

Deen was sued for alleged racial discrimination. But Friday, a judge dismissed the lawsuit.
