Paula Deen's Unfortunately-Timed 6-Word Memoir

Posted: Updated:

Paula Deen's admission, Tuesday morning, that she had been diagnosed with diabetes in 2008 and is teaming with drugmaker Novo Nordisk led many commentators to criticize the TV chef's long-running evangelism of heavy foods. In light of the uproar, it's probably not a good time for Deen to be advertising her nonchalance about the consequences of her diet. The fact that Deen chose to contribute a six-word memoir to a collection of such bon mots in the February 2012 issue of O: The Oprah Magazine isn't necessarily unfortunate... but the six words she chose really are.

How did Deen choose to describe her life?

"Might as well eat that cookie."

Not when you have diabetes, Paula!
