Whenever I used to think of TV chef Paula Deen, the word excessive would come to my mind. That’s been replaced now with another term - hypocrite. Deen knew darn well about her Type 2 diabetes, a disease complicated by the excessively rich food she’s known for, but didn’t say a word about it until after she had a deal with a drug company to hawk its anti-diabetes product. That’s low.  Nobody should be telling anyone to deep fry cheesecake or lasagna. I don’t care what that stuff tastes like. You’re supposed to eat to nourish your body, not so you have a food orgasm. A friend says I'm being too harsh. But I think Deen deserves every bit of backlash she’s getting, do you?
