Paula Deen

Screw Diabetes ...

I'm Eating a BURGER!!!

1/26/2012 6:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paula Deen cruising through her hamburgerType 2 diabetic Paula Deen is unfazed by her life-threatening disease -- practically unhinging her jaw this week on a Caribbean cruise ... to take a heart-stopping bite out of a cheeseburger.

The picture was snapped Monday on board a Celebrity cruise ship -- where the 65-year-old is currently tempting fate, hosting her annual "Party-at-Sea" vacation for 400 devoted followers. It's hard to see, but there are also fries on her plate.

The cruise left Miami on Saturday -- and it's set to visit Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten on the 7-day calorie-filled round trip.

So far, it's unclear if they serve salads.

DEAR GOD! Why don't some of you clueless morons do a little research before posting your mindless dribble! Having T2 diabetes does not mean you have to become some food guru and restrict yourself to bean sprouts and tofu. It is perfectly fine for her to eat a cheese burger and fries. Learn before you show your stupidity. I know this as I have family and friends with T2. Its a matter of watching your sugar levels and keeping them in balance. Now if she was sitting there stuffing down a giant piece of chocoholic;ate cake and it was proven to be not sugar free .. then say all the **** you want.

When you are a diabetic you have to be particularly careful of how much sugar you eat, go slow on the sweets. You're allowed to eat hamburgers, people.

Seriously? Are we going to stalk her at every meal from now on?

We all know that smoking kills us, are any of your staffers smokers? Should I stand outside your offices and wait for them to come out for a butt then snap pictures of them, post them online, and then publicly ridicule them for their choice to partake in a legal activity?

Honestly, guys, this is pretty ridiculous.

My, my, what a bunch of sanctimonious people who are jumping down her throat, McDonalds didn't get rich by just Paula Dean eating burgers. TMZ defends someone who just taps someone walking across the street while driving away(kissing her ass Lohan) but it's the end of civilization because Paul Dean eats a burger. Save your scathing wit for the important stories, oh yeah, I forgot, this is important to you.

Its a burger not an ice cream sundae. Do you even understand diabetes?? Sheesh!

Oh, Paula,hun. Maybe you shouldn't have done cooking shows, and had your own hamburger stand. If it didn't do well, you can always eat the inventory.

Ok, all joking aside. Paula, you need to take better care of yourself, hun. Join a healthy eating plan or something.
The older you are, the harder it is to fight things off. More so, when you are sick. How good will that burger taste when you can hardly eat it for being so damn sick?

Wow you know we really cant tell what kind of burger that is. could it be veggie or turkey. Granted her dishes are high fat comfort foods but like all foods in moderation. I am a Type 2 diabetic and i still enjoy a nice burger now and then. I follow a god diet take my meds. Due to a back injury and 4 surgeries i cannot exercise as much as i want. but lighten up a little we're all human and be sure of the facts before assuming.

Everyone needs to leave her alone. Having a picture of her on TMZ eating a burger and fries is going too far.

I didn't feel sorry for her before BUT I do now.

Type 2    

Is this REALLY news? Just because a person has diabetes doesn't mean the can't have a cheeseburger and fries every once and a while. C'mon people, give the lady a break! It's really none of your business!

gosh,TMZ, you guys did not care what she ate before this "new revelation" of her living with diabetes for 3 YEARS. What's different now? Did she make a declaration about swearing off fatty foods? Is she a spokesperson for weight watcher, jenni or nutri? leave her alone

Her diabetes has nothing to do with her weight. If that's the case she should have had it long time ago. Individuals can get diabetes even if they live a health life after a certain age. It's her age that has caused this. PLEASE GIVE HER A BREAK AND LET HER LIVE HER LIFE.

This is so dumb. Let her live her life. You honestly think people with diabetes all eat only salads all the time? At least she is paying for her own healthcare instead of us tax payers.
