Last week, Paula Deen, the sweet-talking Southerner and Food Network star who measures a meal's worthiness in sticks of butter, revealed that she has been living with Type 2 diabetes for the last three years.
We can hardly claim shock at the diagnosis of the self-proclaimed "mayonnaise freak" who, when asked to describe her philosophy for life in six words said, "Might as well eat that cookie." (Hell, we featured her prominently on a previous countdown of The 10 Food Shows Most Likely To Kill America.) But we are curious about how Paula can close those icy blue eyes as night knowing she's been shamelessly instructing Americans to chow down on concoctions that routinely forgo healthy ingredients in favor of heavy cream, cheese, sugar, and of course, meet her two-stick-minimum of butter.
Paula can drawl all she wants about how her disease is "not a death sentence,” but at the end of the day, who can keep track of the couch-bound-masses she's charmed into an early demise? We certainly can't, but we can count down the malevolent morsels she's unleashed on America that will undoubtedly get the job done most efficiently. Caution: You are now entering a green-free zone. These are Paula Deen's 10 Deadliest Recipes.
