Food Network to the Deen family: Bye, y'all!

The network has dropped Jamie Deen, the youngest son of former Food Network star Paula Deen, from their lineup, a source confirms to E! News. 

Though the Food Network had no comment, our source tells us Jamie's show Home for Dinner With Jamie Deen, is no longer in production and hasn't been since early 2013. (Though the network is still airing reruns on Thursday mornings.)

Our insider also spills that Paula's other son, Bobby Deen, is currently working on a new show concept for the network. 

The news comes on the heels of Paula's announcement that she is launching her own digital network after her high-profile dismissal from the Food Network following her racial scandal in 2013. Both Bobby and Jamie, as well as Paula's husband, Michael Groover, will appear as special guests when the network launches in September 2014.

"Guess who's going digital, y'all! I'm so excited about my new online Network and can't wait to show everyone what we've been working on," Paula said in a statement.
