Paula Deen, 64 year old TV Chef for The Food Network, specializing in Southern Cooking, has admitted to having Type 2 Diabetes. The reason she admitted is because she has decided to start promoting the new diabetic prescription drug Victoza, from the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk.
When I first heard I was surprised and judgmental. But then I realized she had her own reasons and that is why she still does the cooking the way she does.
Now when I saw part of the Al Roker interview on The Today Show when he was drilling her, I thought to myself, that is funny Al, first of all you got Gastric bypass surgery AND you did a traveling food show??? REALLY??? Who are you to judge buddy?
Don’t believe me:
Keep in mind, Paula Deen said she did give up sweet tea but she will not give up her cooking. The woman is 64 years old, give her a break. She is old enough to make her own decisions. She has cooked southern fried, fatty and sugary food all her life.
So Paula, its your prerogative, do what you want, 😉
