To People: “I was surprised by the depth of hate, this is not something I chose. I had been given lemons and I had to try to make lemonade – without sugar!”
To Associated Press: “I think a few people who have access to a TV camera and ink kind of wanted to hate on me for coming down with something.”
I would never diss on Paula for having diabetes. I myself fear that I will one day contract it after touching one of my many pet bags of sugar.
When I first read that people were hating on her I thought she was saying it was because she was skinnier now (she’s lost 30 pounds, her goal is 45) and I’m angry because ‘Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Not Fat’ is a better title.
I did like her better jolly, but I also want her to stay alive for a long time and to continue to cook with butter, even if she can’t drink as much of it now.
[Have you guys seen the Paula Deen butter memes that are out there? Everything from “I cum butter” to the more gentle “A message for LBGT youth: it gets butter” and Rafiki Deen holding a stick of it over pride rock.]
