Type 2 diabetes? What Type 2 diabetes?
TMZ has outed celebrity chef Paula Deen on a Caribbean cruise this week for chowing down on a cheeseburger and french fries. It’s part of Deen’s annual “Party At Sea” cruise that she and her family plus hundreds of fans embark on every January.
This is noteworthy because a couple weeks ago, Deen came out about her diagnosis with type 2 diabetes, which she has actually known about for three years and is now hocking a “Diabetes in a New Light” plan.
But let’s get back to this “Party at Sea” cruise, of which we had no knowledge until right now. On her website, highlights of the cruise are listed as:
Private welcome cocktail party
A commemorative personalized gift from Paula
Optional hosted excursions in St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and San Juan
Personal photo with Paula Deen as well as DVD and CD of the trip (one per family)
BBQ demo with Michael
Group buffet dinner
Makeover demonstration by Jamie and Courtney
Sports contests (onboard Deen Family Olympics) with prizes
Group dance lesson for Paula’s guests
Private BBQ by the pool with band
Q&A session with Paula
Aunt Peggy’s “Family Secrets”
Optional golf tournament in St. Thomas
Chef’s cooking demo with Paula’s critique
Games with Paula
Private farewell cocktail party
That sounds like it should be one of Dante’s circles, no?
