Paula Deen’s diabetes announcement criticized by Anthony Bourdain; Jeff Goldblum to guest on ‘Glee’

Paula Deen announced Tuesday that she has Type 2 Diabetes — a diagnosis she received three years ago — and will be a spokeswoman for a treatment plan created by a pharmaceutical company. Anthony Bourdain, who has never been a fan of the Southern TV chef, criticized the timing of these two announcements. The “No Reservations” host told Eater, “When your signature dish is hamburger in between a doughnut, and you’ve been cheerfully selling this stuff knowing all along that you’ve got Type 2 Diabetes ... it’s in bad taste if nothing else.” He then tweeted a thinly veiled criticism of Deen: “Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business, so I can profitably sell crutches later.” (@NoReservations; TMZ; Eater)
