Paula Deen: Leave her junk alone!

I'm not sure Paula Deen deserves the backlash she is getting for being slow to disclose her type 2 diabetes diagnosis. Honestly, don't most of us appreciate the HIPAA privacy laws that keep our medical junk private? When did it become the assigned burden of celebrity to share their personal health care junk? As for her cooking show content - I'm no lawyer, but I am confident she is under contract to produce very specific content regardless of her personal health crisis. Her job is to teach Southern comfort cooking which was no doubt defined in painstaking detail long before she batted those big baby blues at the camera. And my final question: Just how many of us actually make a Paula Deen recipe as a matter of routine? Can she really be blamed for the corruption of the family meal? I don't think so.

What are your thoughts?

Refresher: Link to the Health & Human Services HIPAA law that keeps the health care junk of us common folks private:
