var allCells = document.getElementsByTagName("td");

for ( var counter = 0; counter < allCells.length; counter++)
{
   var cell  = allCells[ counter ];
   if ( cell.innerHTML == "" )//put whatever value you want to check
   {
          cell.style.color = "red";
   }
}

as long as each cell you want to be able to modify is of class "status", you could put this code inside documjent ready function

$(document).ready(function(){  
  $('.status:contains("Paid")').css('color', 'red'); 
});
