FILE - In this June 26, 2013 file photo provided by NBC, celebrity chef Paula Deen cries on NBC News' "Today" show in New York days after she issued two videotaped apologies on YouTube seeking forgiveness following her admission that she used a racial slur in the past. Deen tried to apologize after court documents revealed she had admitted using racial slurs. But her apology was defensive. That video was quickly scrapped and replaced with a second video and more defensiveness. "I want people to understand that my family and I are not the kind of people that the press is wanting to say we are," the celebrity chef said. (AP Photo/NBC, Peter Kramer, File)

In an interview with this week’s People magazine, Deen quoted Sam as saying he wants to be known as a football player and not a gay football player.

Deen told the magazine she understands his viewpoint and, in her case, worries the words "embattled" or "disgraced" always will be attached to her name. (AP Photo/Carlo Allegri, File)
