I have plenty of opinions and this only hits home because I’m sick of everyone talking about it. I care about living a healthy lifestyle and advocate to moms about food. I care about food, it’s not what tastes good it’s also about what nourishes our body.
That said, here’s my opinion about Paula Deen.
To quote as to why she never came out she said “Had nothing to give to my fellow friends out there.” What do you mean you had nothing to give? You gave an extra 3 years worth of horrible recipes and ADVOCATED FOR UNHEALTHY FOODS. She has had 3 years to process her bad decisions and to change but she didn’t. In fact, knowing she had diabetes continued on with her unhealthy recipes.Was it good for her pocket book? It sure was, she went on to release another TV show, and a whole line of kitchenware, and two more cookbooks.
Now she announces her Type 2 diabetes at the same time she releases that she is working as a paid spokesperson for the drug company Novo Nordisk, which manufactures Victoza – an injectable, non-insulin drug used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Wow again is it good for her pocket book?
I wouldn’t be so offended if it wasn’t all about money and really about trying to get healthy. It’s just another way for her to make cash. I see people saying “we should uplift her” What do you mean? Had she had not LIED to everyone for 3 years I could see the whole “lets help her be healthy” argument actually work but lets see it for what this is. She only comes clean after being paid millions by a drug company. Come on now…..
I can’t believe people are stupid enough to fall for this.
Oh wait, yes I can.
