Remember that rumor Paula Deen has type 2 diabetes and is going to replace her I HEART BUTTER Y’ALL bumper sticker with an I HEART NOVARTIS Y’ALL endorsement? Click HERE for a refresher. Turns out that the National Enquirer was right. Deen confirmed her diabetes diagnosis on the ‘Today Show’ with Al Roker.
Paula talked about finding out she now has adult onset diabetes 3 YEARS AGO. The Daily reheated the rumor a few days ago after the Novartis deal was inked. Deen explained that she waited 3 years to share her diagnosis because she wanted “to figure things out” and “think about it and talk with [my] doctor.” Translation: MONEY.
I digress, I am sure it had nothing to do with the hypocrisy of a diabetic endorsing healthy living and shilling cookbooks filled with recipes including Fried Butter Balls, The Bacon-Donut-Egg Burger (aka The Krispy Kreme Burger), Deep Fried Stuffing on a Stick and Chocolate Cheese Fudge. (Disclaimer: These are all actual Paula Deen recipes.) Somewhere out there Anthony Bourdain is thinking, “Gurl, I told ya so!”
Is it just me or is every troll on the Food Network some undercover Famehooker? Rachel Ray will sell anything you put in her hand as long as someone is pointing a camera at her, homosexuals “weird out” Guy Fieri because it interrupts his boob ogling and fart jokes while offending the Jewish community and Bobby Flay will do anything as long as he can sprinkle blue corn chips on it.
