Paula Deen, who has made a very good living touting rich, Southern foods, has disclosed that she has type 2 Diabetes, and folks may wonder whether there's a connection. Deen, author of a series of popular cookbooks and host of television cooking shows, has never been shy about cooking foods that are bacon- or cream-filled. In fact, "Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible" was listed among the worst of 2011 by the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine, the Baltimore Sun's Picture of Health blog noted.

Paula Deen has just paid the biggest price in the history of the universe for using a bad word. Her network and just about every last business partner have dumped her. The best guess is that her annual income will drop from about $17 million to around $7 million. That's quite a fine. She also has had to grovel to Jesse Jackson for something called "redemption. " Martha Stewart feels sorry for her. And, in a "Today" show appearance that was painful to watch, she had to absorb the too-cool interrogation by Matt Lauer, of all people, while she stuttered and wept and twisted her hanky.

Paula Deen's disclosure that she has type 2 Diabetes has triggered some harsh reactions. For years, Deen has featured high-calorie Southern foods in her cookbooks and on television. Some  folks are riled by the fact that that she was doing it while aware of her own diabetes, a disease that has been linked to a poor diets and excess weight. And they poked at Deen for aligning her new webste with Victoza, a diabetes medicine made by Novo Nordisk. Fellow celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain -- who has famously called Deen "the most dangerous person in America" -- issued a veiled tweet that did not mention her name, but was taken by many to refer to her. It said: "Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business, so I can profitably sell crutches later.

The best that can be said for the Supreme Court's ruling on affirmative action in college admissions is that it did not immediately and totally ban the practice. But the decision to send a University of Texas at Austin case back to the appeals court from which it came with instructions that the circumstances be scrutinized more closely certainly suggests that the justices are dubious about the continued need for the policy. That's hardly an encouraging sign as the court readies for a ruling in a case on whether a critical section of the Voting Rights Act - one that requires certain Southern states to have changes in voting law screened by the U.S. Department of Justice - is not constitutional after nearly five decades in use (and despite unsuccessful legal challenges in the past)

Paula Deen has long bragged about her unhealthy cooking, but now the southern chef has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes . While she said she is not changing her diet, her diagnosis could be a wake up call to people still clinging to fatty, sugar-filled diets. Deen said she has always eaten in moderation, but while Type 2 diabetes can be hereditary it is also diet related. Deen made her announcement while at the same time saying she was promoting a diabetes drug.

Southern chef Paula Deen makes no apologies for her butter-filled unhealthy recipes. So it's no surprise that her cookbook tops the list of worst of the year in terms of health in a report by the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine. The group, that promotes healthy foods and eating, said Deen's and other unhealthy cookbooks encourage Americans to fill up on high-fat, meat-heavy meals. Jamie Oliver, the chef known for his aggressive campaign to make school lunches healthier, is also listed as one of the worst offenders.

Celebrity chefs have become a big business in recent years. Rare are the kitchen products, from pots and pans to garlic presses, that do not carry an endorsement from some chef with a cable television show and a chain of restaurants. Paula Deen is just such a person and received considerable attention last week when it was revealed that she has had type 2 diabetes for the past three years. This would not be particularly notable - diabetes is on the rise in this country, with more than 25 million adults and children affected by it - except for one thing.

There are two camps on Paula Deen. And doesn't it seem like "camp" is the right word when it comes to the Food Network's Miz Paula? The honey-dipped accent, the butter-soaked recipes, the diamond ring as big as a wrestler's belt. Love her or hate her? With Deen on tour this summer for her stage show, "Paula Live!" (and coming to Washington's Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show in November), it's something to consider. Her fans love her with the devotion of puppies. At Deen's book signing at a Charlotte, N.C., Sur La Table in 2005, the crowd had to move into the mall to make room.

Atlantic City gets an undeserved bad rap. The area doesn't exactly conjure thoughts of luxury, class and glamour. Its casino roots are kind of hard to shake. (Insert images of smoke-filled rooms, gold chains, exposed chest hair and hideously cheap outfits.) The MTV show "Jersey Shore" hasn't exactly helped to inspire thoughts of class. When the Miss America pageant abandoned Atlantic City for Las Vegas in 2006, some thought that was the last bit of glitz to leave. And now comes HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," a TV drama that paints the city with gangster stripes.
