A personal blog by Khürt Williams, with imagery, and inchoate ramblings on coffee, beer, and geekery.
It turns out that Deen knew about her diabetes since 2008, and decided to come forward with it only after signing an endorsement deal with drugmaker Novo Nordisk. That move didn’t get her much sympathy, nor did her tepid reaction to certain questions on the “Today Show.” “I’m your cook, not your doctor,” she quipped, claiming she’s always encouraged moderation. Her penchant for unhealthy food, evident on any episode of her show on Food Network, coupled with her endorsement deals of products like Smithfield ham and Philadelphia cream cheese, tells a different story. For many, her statement came off like a missed opportunity. Instead of owning up to the fact that she needs to make some changes, and encourage others to do the same, Deen shrugged off the notion that she should have done things differently.
