(Newser) – The Daily has a big scoop in the world of celeb chefs: It says Paula Deen, the purveyor of fatty Southern cooking like fried butter balls, has type 2 diabetes. What's more, the report says Deen is about to go public with the diagnosis as a multimillion-dollar spokeswoman for drug-maker Novartis. No confirmation yet from either the Food Network star or the drug company. Deen made headlines last summer over a feud with fellow chef Anthony Bourdain, who called her "the worst, most dangerous person to America" because of her high-calorie recipes.

sadly...IF she has a relatively stable DM II and not having insulin resistance, she can potentially reverse most of it by proper diet and exercise, and weight loss. Not always the case, but it sure as hell helps

Is anyone surprised by this? Might as well be eating straight lard. You can hear her arteries hardening with every bite she takes.
