Paula Deen won’t change her recipe for diabetes
Paula Deen book burning day
Stubborn – typical – until Paula Deen and her pursuit of sickness and proliferation by choice is stopped by the audience, she’ll stand by her recipes for unhealthy disaster. She and her boys might try to sugar coat it with public service announcements, but the only way to change a bad path is to walk away.
I advocate burning copies of any and all Paula Deen cookbooks. Let this be Paula Deen book burning day. And, change the channel day.

Queen of comfort cuisine Paula Deen confirmed to Al Roker Tuesday that she has type-2 diabetes.
In her first broadcast interview discussing the disease, Deen said she intentionally kept the diagnosis secret after discovering she had it during a routine physical three years ago. “I came home, I told my children, I told my husband, I said, ‘I’m gonna keep this close to my chest for the time being’ because I had to figure out things in my own head,” she told Roker on TODAY.
Rumors that the 64-year-old Southern cook suffers from the disease have been persistent. The National Enquirer first reported the diagnosis in April 2010. Deen neither confirmed nor denied the reports – until now.
“I’m here today to let the world know that it is not a death sentence,” said the Food Network star, who is now being paid as a spokesperson for Novo Nordisk, the pharmaceutical company that supplies her diabetes medication. Coinciding with her announcement, Deen and her family are appearing in a new ad campaign for the company this month.”
