The feud continues, y’all!
Anthony Bourdain, who famously blasted Food Network star Paula Deen last year, calling her the “most dangerous person to America,” has weighed in on the news that Deen – known for whipping up decadent desserts like Twinkie pie and coconut chocolate chip gooey cake – suffers from type 2 diabetes and is now a paid spokeswoman for a diabetes medication.
Last summer Bourdain called Deen the “most dangerous person to America” who’s “proud of the fact that her food is f—— bad for you.”
Name-calling aside, trainer Bob Harper says Deen needs to overhaul her life for the sake of her fans and her own health.
“Her food is just entirely too decadent. If you eat like that, it’s going to come back and bite you,” says Harper, who is helping a new crop of overweight contestants shed pounds on season 13 of NBC’s The Biggest Loser. “She’s going to have to get in the kitchen and find a way to get creative with the foods she loves to eat, make them healthier.”
And striking an even gentler note, Dr. Travis Stork, ER physician and co-host of The Doctors, adds: “Life is all about choices. The light bulb moment has to happen for everyone – hopefully this is Paula’s.”
