HOT: Paula Deen Loses 30 Lbs.
Paula Deen may be the Queen of Butter, but when it comes to finally losing weight, she’s certainly put her money where her mouth is. Most people weren’t surprised when Paula revealed that she was diagnosed with Type II diabetes over three years ago. What pissed a lot of people off is that she waited to tell the public only once she had snagged a big time deal representing Novo Nordisk’s diabetes drug. A public relations mess ensued, and even her publicist of six years gracefully bowed out of the fray. However, Paula promised to turn her health around, and according to latest issue of People magazine she’s lost 30 pounds – and counting! We’re glad that Paula’s finally taken charge of her health and has developed a new-found love for “Greek salads and baked fish.” Paula’s weight loss isn’t just a smart personal move – it’s a smart PR move, as well.
