She has been criticised for promoting fat-laden, unhealthy recipes.
Now it seems that Paula Deen – the Southern TV cook who once said she couldn’t live without butter and a deep-fat fryer – may be set to reveal she has Type 2 diabetes.
For nearly a year the plus-size mother-of-two has been the target of rumours that she has encouraged her fans to eat her high-fat, sugary meals, while secretly hiding her Type 2 diabetes diagnosis.
On Friday the rumours resurfaced after the iPad publication The Daily claimed that Paula is set to reveal she has the deadly disease.
The online paper also alleged that the cook has signed a deal with a pharmaceutical company and will soon be promoting diabetes medication.
Hours later NBC released a statement that Paula will be exclusively addressing the issue on the Today show on Tuesday morning.
The interview with presenter Al Roker will come just days before the Georgia native turns 65.
Ironically, last year she told the Today show that she couldn’t live without butter or her deep-fryer.
