Paula Deen — the queen of high-calorie, Southern cooking — is about to come clean and confess that she can’t 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.
But unlike millions of Americans, who suffer from the disease and have to struggle to pay for the needed medicines and testing equipment, Deen is going to instead profit off of it:
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.
Novartis, the drug company she is said to be working for, declined to respond to Flash’s questions, as did Deen’s agent and Deen herself.
Instead of promoting healthier food, Deen decides to promote the medication. Instead of deciding to become an advocate for proper eating and helping to lead America to a healthier future, she will continue to push her diabetes causing meals and then push the drugs to fight the disease.
There is something very wrong with this whole story and I don't like it one bit.
