Paula Deen Lacks Support

Paula Deen Lacks Support

Here’s an article about the lack of support from fellow famous chefs for Paula Deen’s diabetes announcement. Seems like people were both not shocked that she had diabetes, and not pleased that she waited three years to make a public announcement about it. It was news even to her own network. She didn’t announce it until she had arranged a spokesperson deal with a pharmaceutical company that sells diabetes drugs. Some choice quotes from the article:

“To only tell the truth when you have locked in a paid spokesperson deal for a non-insulin medication is just too toxic for anyone to want to be involved with.”

“However, I heard someone say it would be news if she didn’t get diabetes. So I guess friend, butter is bad for you. Who knew?”
