3. Deen Goes For Green
Celebrity chef Paula Deen, famous for her colossally high-calorie dishes, confirmed Tuesday she has type 2 diabetes.
That's tough to stomach. Hopefully she will overcome it.
She also announced her new job as a paid spokesperson for
(NVO - Get Report), the drug giant behind the diabetes drug Victoza.
Oh lord! That's stomach-turning and even richer than one of her recipes!
What's next: Mel Gibson for the
United Jewish Appeal
Jerry Sandusky for the
Boy Scouts of America
Lindsay Lohan (or Dina Lohan for that matter) for
Mothers Against Drunk Driving
Michael Vick for the
Alec Baldwin for
Kim Kardashian for
Casey Anthony for anything.
Yep, Paula Deen is going for the green, which would be fine if she was talking about vegetables. Unfortunately, she's not. And that's what makes this whole deal so unappetizing.
