Paula Deen From Bacon Dealer to Drug Dealer

Last year I featured an awesome post by Caroline Jhingory called Have You Ever Dated a Former Fat Girl? that listed her 10 Rules for Dating a Former Fat Girl. While reading over her blog recently I came across her article about Paula Deen. As most of you already know, Paula Deen is taking a lot of heat over promoting some very unhealthy food that can lead to diabetes. Well she has finally announced that she has diabetes, simultaneously announcing herself as spokeswoman for a diabetes drug.

Yes that’s right.

Paula Deen: From Bacon Dealer to Drug Dealer!



Food Network chef Paula Deen announced on the TODAY Show this morning that she has type 2 diabetes.  She also announced her partnership with drug company Novo Nordisk, the manufacturers of the anti-diabetes drug Victoza which is referenced in every single article written about Deen’s diabetes.



Deen told Al Roker that she’s known of the diagnosis for 3 years. And today she launched the new sponsored “Diabetes in a New Light” program with Novo Nordisk.

No Reservations host and Top Chef judge Anthony Bourdain had this to say about her announcement, “When your signature dish is hamburger in between a doughnut, and you’ve been cheerfully selling this stuff knowing all along that you’ve got Type 2 Diabetes… It’s in bad taste if nothing else.”

Also, the Victoza Drug Additional Important Safety Information Page states:

”During the drug testing process, the medicine in Victoza® caused rats and mice to develop tumors of the thyroid gland. Some of these tumors were cancers. It is not known if Victoza® will cause thyroid tumors or a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid cancer in people. If medullary thyroid cancer occurs, it may lead to death if not detected and treated early. If you develop tumors or cancer of the thyroid, your thyroid may have to be surgically removed.”

Wow! Paula Deen got famous because of her unhealthy food. She more than likely got diabetes because of it as well. Now she’s found a way to capitalize on it as a “drug dealer” for what sounds like a potentially dangerous diabetes drug. What’s next Paula?

    I thought it was a kind of hamburger, Its truly amazing. I want to try this delicious kind.

  5. Beau says:

    I have seen the picture of that burger so many times. And each time it gets yummier and yummier looking. I can’t imagine the calorie to fat ratio in that thing.

    It is not too surprising that she developed Type-2 diabetes.

    Unfortunately, most diabetes drugs have serious side effects that can be deadly. Both Actos and Avandia, the two top selling drugs prescribed to Type-2 diabetics both can cause very serious health problems.

    So, it is not surprising to see that Victoza has severe side effects as well. What is surprising is that someone like Paula Dean would push a drug like this.

    I haven’t tried eating burger and doughnut together. You should always live in moderation so as not to develop any form of disease. After all prevention is better than cure. How old was Paula when she learned about her diabetes?


  9. Mary says:

    Just when I thought Paula had a positive learning experience, I learn that she is promoting a dangerous drug. I don’t know if creating a bad image for her is done on purpose. Anyway, thank you for the helpful info. I will definitely take caution.

    To show how quickly attitudes change in the golf industry, ten months ago TaylorMade introduced a limited edition black version of its white R1 driver. And Taylormade launched a limited edition white version of its SLDR driver, called Taylormade SLDR White driver. The key platform behind the SLDR driver is a center of gravity position that is low and forward. The idea is that this location produces lower spin and a more efficient energy transfer. The company believes the low spin benefits are be
