(Best Syndication News) - Paula Deen, was on NBC’s ‘Today’ TV show this Tuesday morning and admitted publicly that she has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Deen said that she has been living with this condition for the past three years.

Al Roker interviewed Deen and asked her why it took so long to go public with the diabetes? Deen said that she wanted to be able to figure things out in her head first, and she did not have anything to give to her audience by going public until now.

Roker further pressured her by suggesting that she withheld the announcement because the foods she cooked are high fat foods that some consider unhealthy. Deen said that she didn’t agree, and said that her cooking shows would continue because people are not going to quit eating.
