CNN — Cooking guru Paula Deen is off the hook in Texas.
The Dallas Metropolitan cooking and entertaining show says it has no plans to drop deen from its roster.
In a statement released Monday, the show says Deen has been a friend for many years and that her apology for using racist language in the past is sufficient.
The statement also says the metrocooking shows in Houston, Dallas and Washington D.C., will continue as planned, using Deen as a presenter.
Deen has been fending off criticism after she admitted in a deposition that she used the "n-word" before.
A former employee at one of her Georgia restaurants is also suing her and her brother.
Deen has already been dropped by The Food Network and Smithfield Foods.
