After telling Today last week that some people were “mean” when she announced her diabetes medication deal, Paula Deen today tells People that she’s not combating her diabetes diagnosis with drugs alone. She’s also dieting and exercising! “I’ve dropped two pant sizes and I feel great!” she tells the magazine. The story says her fitness routine “includes walking 30 minutes every day — and now having portions half the size of those she used to eat.” (Which leads us to wonder: How do you make a cheeseburger with only half a Krispy Kreme doughnut?) It’ll be really disappointing if it turns out this is all just a ploy to start hawking Fembody supplements alongside that other Paula. [People]
