I have read a few articles and blogs about Paula Deen. It sounds like many of them are glad she is diabetic. They don't come right out and say it but "Serves her right" is the message. There is outrage and self-righteous rants about her. She is in the public eye and is there anyone who didn't figure out that her methods of food preparation were high fat, high sugar, high calories, and all that? There is always the disclaimer that they know she can eat as she pleases and why should they care. Are there any among us who should be self-righteous? There but for the grace of God go you and I.
We all have a brain and should be able to watch Paula Deen and not lose all control and eat ourselves into a coma don't you think? There are people who eat unwisely and don't become diabetic. You know what people say if someone speaks up against pornography? Don't watch it. It is possible to eat those kinds of food in moderation or not at all. I am not ready to blame Paula Deen because I am fat. Diabetics cannot blame her for their condition. I also am not quietly gratified that she is diabetic. I guess she has known of her condition for about 3 years. She probably knew what the public reaction would be.
Behavior has consequences - for Paula Deen, for you, for me. I hope she can control her diabetes. I have always thought that she is beautiful and seems to be a very nice person.
