Paula Deen the queen of high-calorie, Southern cooking is about to come clean and confess that she cant eat her own dishes anymore because she has diabetes.
The Georgia-born chef a Food Network star who has written five best-selling cookbooks has been trying to keep her condition a secret, even after the National Enquirer reported in April that she has Type 2 diabetes, which is often associated with fatty foods and obesity.
Sources say Deen, 64, who never addressed the diabetes question, has worked out a multimillion-dollar deal to be the spokeswoman for a pharmaceutical company and endorse the drug she is taking.

Most of the diabetics I know are genetically disposed...in fact all of them are.
Rachel Ray must be eating Paula’s cooking. It’s the only way to explain Ray’s weight because her recipes are lousy.
So she’s now promoting a drug that is used to cure a condition that is caused by the type of foods she has been teaching people how to prepare?
I’d have more respect for her if she revamped her show to teach people how to cook meals that don’t lead to diabetes.
I think her food may be delicious, but just about every recipe is unhealthy.
My wife and I were hosted by a true, southern-fried couple for dinner a couple of months ago - my arteries are still recovering from that meal...
Her son has a new Food Channel Show fearturing her recipes without all the fats and sugars.
The stuff looked good.
What a hateful headline and lead!
“So shes now promoting a drug that is used to cure a condition that is caused by the type of foods she has been teaching people how to prepare?”
Looks like Paula will be working both sides or the fence, much like a drug dealer that would sell both heroin and methadone or a pharmacy that only sold cigarettes and cancer medication.
The National Enquirer?
They’re right about this
AND they were right about “Bath-House Barry”.
So What??? over 60% of Americans have some sort of diabetes. It is not only Paula’s cooking but all of the fast food places that provide high fat food. You know what the American People love it.
My husband is 145 lbs and has Type 2 diabetes and has always eaten very healthily. Sometimes it isn’t about the food or the weight. And sometimes the diabetes causes weight gain as well since the body can’t process sugar/starch.
A little bit of that goes a long way and I think she consciously exaggerates the drawl, too...y'all!!!!
Like there's something wrong with that.
I don’t indulge in KFC type meals everyday...and don’t know anyone else who does either. Paula’s a good cook and a good girl. Don’t make her one of Moochele’s victims.
I was just stating a fact. The poster said Paula needed to have a show featuring healthier food.
Her son has such a show.
As far as I am concerned, people can eat what they want. I am not the food police.
If more Americans embraced Paula Deen's cooking, this country would save billions in social security and pension payments.
I did not write the article.
But, we will see if it is true if Paula Deen starts peddling diabetes medication.
What was even more interesting was that the blacks that I met spoke proper English and were very kind.
