The domestic diva speaks out about the embattled cooking celebrity.

on Jun 27, 2013 - The Dish

Not many people are rushing to the defense of Paula Deen. Martha Stewart might be an exception.

On last night's episode of Watch What Happens Live, the domestic diva answered a caller's question about the embattled cooking celebrity, who has lost fans (and her job with the Food Network) due to her admission that she used the N word.

"I feel sorry for Paula Deen," Stewart said. "She's a public figure."

Stewart, who has survived her own share of personal turmoil in the past, also noted that it's tough for public figures these days thanks to increased media and the Internet.

"I know you have to be extremely careful being a public figure," she said. "I don't want to say whether I agree with it or not, I just feel that you really have to watch yourself. Especially with this day in age with cameras all over you and Google and records...what I just said...that'll be there forever! Sorry!"

While Stewart was candid about Deen, she buttoned up when asked if she agreed with the Food Network's decision to fire her. "No comment."
