I’m not going to say, I was to surprise with this one. Queen of comfort cuisine Paula Deen confirmed to Al Roker Tuesday that she was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes three years ago. And even as she reveals that she is living with Type 2 Diabetes, she says it won’t stop her from eating the way she wants.

“I’m excited to team up with Novo Nordisk on this initiative to show others that managing diabetes does not have to stop you from enjoying the things you love.

Paula Deen is known by the public for her sweet southern charm, and tasty comfort food to match (mac&cheese, friend chicken and lets not forget….her hamburger in between a doughnut.

I wish Paula Deen the best!
