January 17, 2012

Cooking guru Paula Deen revealed on the Today Show earlier this morning that she has Type 2 Diabetes and now she is cooking in a whole new way. In light of this news and because we love Paula she is Right Celebrity’s Caption This photo contest for the week, yes!

Apparently the southern cooking lady, who is known for making amazing dishes full of butter and fat, learned of her condition about three years ago. There is more on Deen and her diagnosis but first let me tell you all about our Caption This photo contest. It is so easy just check out the above pic of Paula and caption it by leaving your hysterical remarks in the below comments section. Then next Tuesday when a hot new topic and picture are posted check back to see if your name is in print as the big winner. Easy and fun I tell you so get captioning.

Since her diagnosis Paula has been working on not only adjusting her life but of course how she can help others through her cooking. The Food Network star had this say on the subject that is now very close to her heart.

I am here today to let the world know that it is not a death sentence. I am working with a very reputable pharmaceutical company. I’m working on a new program called ‘Diabetes in a New Light.’ You can go to our website. I’m going to be there for you and help you manage every day of your life with this, because it can be done.”

I went to her website and man it was awesome. Yes she has made changes but she hasn’t had to change her whole life and she still gets to do what she loves. I personally think everyone should take the time to check out her site, even if you don’t have diabetes you should still check it out. That Paula, quite an inspiration I must say.
