    If you saw the episode where she made an egg, sausage and cheese sandwich using glazed donuts, you’d have already realized that she was in trouble.

      How about the one where she makes bread pudding ” using Crispie Cream donuts.  She has a way with donuts !

    Wow, it shows. Take the message

  • Should have saved some of the money she spent on the teeth bleaching for her diabetes treatment.

    • Anonymous

      she had veneers put on, not bleaching.  If you go to Savannah, she does commercials for her dentist!

    The story calls her a hypocrite? Mrs. Obama tells us we are too fat as she stuffs her face with ribs, cheesecake, cheeseburgers and the limosine liberals say she is saving our children. Hypocrite much.

    The woman is living life with gusto.  More people need to focus on that than believing that if they only do the “right” things, they will be immortal.  Giblets and gravy on mashed, thank you.

      She should not have to do anything to satisfy your demands.

    • She should promote meals that make her happy. Do you know what happy is mainecoon9? Oh by the way, how could you have “coon” in your name?  That’s not very PC now is it? (How do you like it?)

        it is most likely in reference to Maine Coon cats.

    She’s toast..

      with butter…

    Often she has said that she does not eat the “southern” cooking every day. Each of us needs to enjoy a great meal or what is the point of living. Oatmeal is fine several days of the week, but that big bacon, egg, and rye toast Sunday breakfast is great. Deen has a flare for living large and her kind of food is amazingly tasty. Fat-free is not for me. Liberals, please don’t inundate me with negative comments on how living large costs you in health care dollars. Instead, have a little fun and stop nannying the rest of us.

      I was with you until you brought politics into this, I am liberal, and I enjoy a nice big breakfast every so often, use real butter daily, but eat very few processed foods.  My blood pressure and cholesterol are just fine.

        I am with you on this one, but some of the time I get chastised for not doing what the government tells me to do. lol

    Paula Deen Inc. pushes the goodies for fun and profit, which is why she was so slow in coming out with the truth about her condition. Her poor husband must be a ticking time bomb.

    Big deal….She can do what she wants, none of our business..

    Her show follows a formula decided by the producers, she is just an actor on the show at this point.  I highly doubt that she eats this way on a regular basis.  These gimmicky recipes seem to work to lure in viewers.

    Paula knows how to turn a profit that’s for sure.  I for one like her, would I make any of her current recipes?  Not likely, but her original cookbooks are filled with delicious comfort food that can be enjoyed every so often.

  • You know someone is going to sue her for this saying they followed her into diabetes.  Don’t agree with that, but I can see it happening in our ambulance-chasing society where no one is accountable for their own actions.

    This is news? I assumed she was Type II, with her on-screen diet… She was just waiting to find a way to capitalize on her condition.

    If Paula Deen should be held accountable for some reason for pushing her recipes, then what on earth are we to do with McDonald’s and Burger King, and Arby’s and…? Nobody is forced to cook Deen’s food.

    If you didn’t realize before hand that these foods were high in fat and high in sugars than there was already a major problem.  I see Paula Dean as someone who makes treats, not someone who makes food to consume on a daily basis.

    She’s getting way too much grief over all this. A lot of people have diabetes and are overweight because they just can’t lose weight, and not everyone lives the type of lifestyle throughout their lifetime that allows them to do all those things that health nuts say to do. I just don’t understand how people can go after her and compare her food preparation to smoking cigarettes. Have you ever had a hot pocket? How about a milk or cheese product that you don’t need to refrigerate? Do you know how bad that stuff is for you? Instant coffee? There are so many preservatives in that stuff that its not a wonder so many people are developing colitis, IBS, and so many food allergies these days. Yet people want to give her grief about using real butter. Go pound sand I say.

    • No, they are giving her grief for merchandising the treatment.

    I am a type 1 diabetic.. My pancreas don’t work and have been on insulin since a early age.. I’m going to make Whoopie Pies right now i need one badly..  But the secret is i don’t use sugar Splenda is my friend.. They still are not good for me cause of the flour and stuff but they are so good once in a while.. I will make a batch and freeze them and eat one here and there might last me 2 months maybe 3 and I only make a dozen of them..  You cant stop living cause you have diabetes.. You do have to take care of your self though..

    I had the opportunity to eat in her Savannanh 
    restaurant Lady & Sons. In no way did I think that the food was healthy, I found it very greasy and the restaurant itself highly overrated.

    First off what does it mean that she “pushed” a high fat diet. She showed southern style cooking that nobody was forced to eat. Second, if someone has a medical condition it’s really nobody’s business.

    It is sad that she would promote such an unhealthy diet AND big pharma.  The last thing we need to promote is that an unhealthy lifestyle can be supported with medications.  We need preventative medicine and the teaching of the benefits of quality, whole foods combined with an active lifestyle and a positive attitude!

    Hmmm, I wonder why she sin’t being taxed out the wazoo, like people who smoke cigarettes? After all, what she’s doing is likely to cause health problems that ‘the rest of us’ will have to pay for and she’s ‘harming others’ by promoting these types of food. Jack up the taxes on her and anyone who watches her show or buys her cook books! It’s the only sensible thing to do, people! Who cares if they enjoy it and aren’t breaking the law, it’s our right to control others!
    (Note- Before anyone makes any indignant responses, I’m being sarcastic.)
