There’s been a lot of buzz today about Paula Deen announcing that she has type 2 diabetes. And there’s been no shortage of criticism that her decadent, high-fat cooking has caught up with her — and is doing lots of harm to the American public.
I just turned on the TV in my hotel room and there she was. I stopped to watch her cook with her son Bobby and it was rather shocking. In the first few minutes I heard everything from “dangerously delicious” and “guilty pleasure” to “the devil is in this kitchen today! and “I should be arrested!”
Well, maybe so.
OK, perhaps not arrested. But I do think it’s time she changes her ways. It’s just not funny anymore.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m a passionate food lover and believe there’s a way for all foods to fit. And I think Paula has a lot of charm, she’s an enthusiatic cook with a tremendous following. People LOVE her.
