Dennis and Judi opened the show today by discussing Paula Deen's interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show.

The famous southern cook opened up to Matt Lauer about her recent controversial and racist remarks. Lauer asked her some tough questions and was to some extent, harsh with her.  She tearfully explained the situation while under the spotlight of "judge" Matt Lauer.

Obviously no one should use the terminology that she used, it is a terrible word and there is no place for it in society at this point. But should her entire career be ruined it and be condemned for it?

Watch the video below and let us know if you think Matt Lauer was too harsh on her or if it was justified.
