Food Network star and celebrity chef Paula Deen skipped out on a planned appearance on The Today Show, in the aftermath of reportedly admitting to using racial slurs in the past.

Matt Lauer reported Friday, Deen cancelled her planned “no restrictions” interview with him, claiming "exhaustion." Apparently Deen even flew into New York on Thursday for the sit-down, but after arriving in the Big Apple, nixed the appearance. Watch a clip of Lauer's reveal after the jump!
