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.

You know nothing about this disease and choose to libel this person with your actions. By spreading bad information you do more harm than Paula ever did.

Its her life, if she wants to load herself up for a trip to the hospital in a diabetic coma, who are we to stop her? She's pretty creepy anyway, has anybody seen her reaction after she eats a dessert she especially likes? Its pretty obscene.

Alright TMZ. You've made your point. She's shamelessly unapologetic about eating badly. Fine. She's rich enough to take care of the health consequences.
It's her fans I worry about....but if you are a consenting adult...

I bet she dips her insulin injector in a butter/cheese sauce before sticking herself. I wonder if she is collecting Medicare. A woman eating herself to death, could EASILY pay her own medical bills, now has a preventable disease. Are WE Americans paying for her stupidity? Wish she would eat a triple w/extra cheese sauce and a double side of fries covered in gravy. Disgusting SLOB!!!

There's nothing wrong with someone with Diabetes eating a burger. Get educated TMZ about a disease before you start pointing fingers. She knows what she can eat and not eat. Get real....

You all should mind your own business. The world has gone crazy when you can't live your life the way you want. The Food Police should all get a life and stop telling us what we can and cannot eat.

Just because you have diabetes doesn't mean you cannot enjoy a burger. For all you idiots out there, especially the author of that tidbit here on TMZ, it is about watching HOW MUCH of the bad things you eat. MODERATION. Most people hear diabetes and think like they are still in the 1980's. You can eat anything. The medications help you regulate the sugars in your system and keeping active also helps. She took 3 years to find out how her body reacts to the medications and what she needs to do to take care of herself. You are not doctors so shut the **** up you idiots.

My brother was diagnosed at age 60. He's a meat processer and caterer. He's eaten the same type of foods his whole life and is having a difficult time changing. It truly starts in the brain. Consider having to change the way you breathe, try breathing through your mouth all day and not your nose. Hard to do, isn't it?! Paula like my brother needs loving support and positive correction from her family and friends.
