Culinary celebrity and star of Food Network’s Paula’s Best Dishes Paula Deen recently went public with her diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. Tomorrow she’s set to discuss it on ABC’s daytime talk show The Chew. For those interested in hearing what she has to say, we have a couple of clips from the episode for you to check out.
According to USA Today, Deen held off on revealing her diagnosis for a few years, but says her reasoning for holding back the information was due to limited knowledge about the disease:
That was not why. My knowledge about the disease was very limited. But now I'm coming with good information, something that can help and bring hope to other people. It may sound cliché, but it's the God-honest truth.
She may elaborate further on that tomorrow afternoon when she speaks with the hosts of The Chew, ABC’s culinary-themed daytime talk show, which is hosted by Mario Batali, Michael Symon,Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, Daphne Oz. Below are a couple of clips, which feature Deen as she discusses her diabetes, and from the sound of it, answers a question about her partnership with pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk.
The Paula Deen episode of The Chew airs Wednesday, January, 18 at 1:00 p.m., ET/ 12:00 p.m. PT on ABC.
