For years, Paula Deen has been using her southern charm to convince us that proper nutrition has no place in the kitchen. Although she preaches moderation, there's nothing about her butter-, flour-, and sugar-laden cooking that backs this message up. Now it appears that biology has caught up with Paula. She has come out of the closet as someone with Type 2 diabetes. Perhaps she's had one too many burgers with Krispy Kreme doughnuts as buns.
Should we be happy that the queen of unhealthy cooking has finally gotten what was coming to her? Of course not. Should we be furious that she's known about her condition for the past three years while continuing throw stick after stick of butter in her food? Absolutely.
