(The Grio) – Paula Deen is returning to cable TV, after a 22-month hiatus brought on by controversy after she used racial slurs.

On Wednesday, Evine Live will pick up Paula Deen’s Kitchen for a three-hour premiere, reports New York Post. Additionally, Deen will be in live segments of the show every six to eight weeks.

Deen was quickly dropped by the Food Network after a lawsuit filed in 2012 that charged Deen and her brother with both racially offensive talk and sexual harassment. When Deen admitted to using the N-word in the past during her deposition, the Food Network dropped her, even though the judge dismissed the case in August 2013.
