    Mixed in amongst her comments are what are reasonable, refreshing thoughts and perspective on this trendy mass of accusations, judgements and shocked outrage in public court of opinion. Many of these digging up old dirt; the statute of limitations exists for good reason. And we should be very vigilant in rectifying --current-- situations, educating and eradicating sexual harassment in work and other settings, and helping treat victims and perpetrators. But people change; repentance is real as the means of putting parts of ourselves, sometimes otherwise not resolved, behind us in becoming different people. In the cases of some of these celebrities, a lot of good is dismissed for less as we taint everything through the lens of a single (albeit serious) character flaw. It is that none of us are perfect and all need the cleansing of the Atonement.

    Sorry the show won't air. Maybe the bestter answer is editing this individual out (using those great production skills) and giving public forum to the contestants who worked hard. I'd watch that to celebrate them.

    I looked forward to this baking show so much! Just because of a sexual allegation of one judge , they didn't have to pull the entire show!! They disappointed everyone, the viewers and the contestants. In the US, you're innocent until proven guilty according to the constitution. This sexual allegation garbage has gone too far, and it's ruining lives! It's ridiculous ...

    "Well, there it goes, now I’m just a mom again." It is okay to be just a mom because moms are amazing. Also, we should remember that moms are never "just" moms. It is nice to be recognized in the big, bright world for our accomplishments. However, there are some important things we will never be recognized for or that may take a lifetime (or lifetimes) for the work to pay off, but we should truly learn to be okay with that. That is not an easy task.
