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.
