Paula Deen Confirms She Has Diabetes, Plus 25 Reasons Why We’re Not Surprised

This morning, Paula Deen sat down with the “Today Show” to address the claim that she has diabetes. Deen says she was diagnosed over three years ago but waited until today to say anything because she “had to figure things out in my own head.” “I’ve always encouraged moderation,” she continued, and remains hopeful: “I’m here today to let the world know, it is not a death sentence.”

A “death sentence” it is not, but not why take a look at how the Queen of Southern cooking got here today, anyway, by admiring some of her most deep-fried, high-calorie creations?
