Paula's Time Warp

Yes, we are slow down here. But really? Paula Deen still says she has no regrets waiting three years to reveal to her fans that she was diagnosed with diabetes. And, even though she plans to stay true to her roots (and her love of butter, fat, and sugar), she says that when she starts shooting new episodes of her show this spring, she will have something for everyone, including healthy recipes (should any of her fans want a different fare).  

But, don't hold your breath. The production schedule is two years out - meaning it will be 2014 before the new "healthy" shows air. If that's the case, in Paula's world, her announcement about her diabetes wasn't delayed three years, it was actually made during the current year (of her diagnosis) - that her shows currently airing were taped. And, here we were accusing her of holding back on us.

My first question: is Paula living in a time warp? (or a warped world?)  Probably so. I await the healthy versions of the Brunch Burger, Deep Fried Mac and Cheese, Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf, Fried Butter Balls, Peanut Butter Fudge, and Twinkie Pie. (Do folks really eat this stuff?) 

My second question: do her legions really care?   Given her latest cookbook, her "Bible", is now #18 in the Cookbook - Reference catagory on Amazon (out of 2390 selections) - probably not.
