See, I don't agree with that. A chef may have things that they can't personally eat but will continue to cook with. A chef may be lactose intolerant but will use dairy for entrees/desserts. I respect that she wanted to keep privacy on her health concerns.
Never did I think she was okaying me to gorge myself on her unhealthy recipes (which many I still love!) or that she is responsible for diabetic problems in the US.

I guess the only part I can view as potentially hypocritical is the fact that she became a spokesperson for a diabetic drug, while continuing to cook the same way. But I agree with the following part of this article:
Moore, a type 2 diabetic and an educator on diabetic issues, said the news didn’t come as a surprise to him and others with the disease.
“Many of us have watched the Buttuh Queen for years cooking with no thought for the consequences and waiting to hear she was diabetic,” he said.

I guess someone that knew absolutely nothing about health and nutrition could feel mislead? I don't know, it's still a stretch for me.

I agree that anybody who thought her recipes were healthy or made for everyday eating was misleading themselves. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that dumping sticks of butter into the pot is not going to contribute to a healthy diet.
All I have to say is read the deposition.
An update if anyone is still following this.
Race-Based Claims Thrown out in Paula Deen Lawsuit - ABC News
Was this the case where the plaintiff tried to get it made into a class action that would cover all employees and the judge refused to allow it? If so, I wonder why he allowed the race discrimination piece to continue to this point? I do admit to being intrigued by the notion of second-hand discrimination. If the black people being discriminated against don't feel for whatever reason that they can step up & say, this is wrong, then why shouldn't a white person be able to say it? There wouldn't be any monetary damages, of course, but I guess I just answered that question with that statement, LOL!

What do you think will happen now that all charges have been dismissed? I think she got a very rotten deal and hope she will be able to bounce back.
