Paula Deen in People: 'Surprised by the Depth of Hate'

New, 8 comments

Here's grease queen Paula Deen on the cover of People magazine, next to a gigantic proclamation about how she has lost 30 pounds. "Her secrets will surprise you!" it says. Her secrets like how she kept her diabetes from the public for years while touting an unhealthy diet, just waiting for the right pharmaceutical sponsorship to come along before revealing her illness? No: secrets like how she quit eating mashed potatoes but still enjoys the occasional cheeseburger.

Also, she still uses butter and says "I was surprised by the depth of hate" in the response to her combo diabetes/pharma deal announcement. “This is not something I chose. I had been given lemons, and I had to try to make lemonade." What's rumored to be a multimillion dollar sponsorship deal is certainly some sweet, sweet lemonade.
