Anthony Bourdain Slams Paula Deen After Diabetes Announcement
No reservations is right.
Anthony Bourdain isn't done criticizing Paula Deen. The celeb chef and No Reservations star, who has bashed Deen's calorie-bomb recipes in the past, made an obvious dig at the Food Network star on Twitter Tuesday.
Shortly after Deen, 64, confirmed she has type 2 diabetes, Bourdain wrote, "Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business, so I can profitably sell crutches later." A bit later, Bourdain shot down a headline provided by TMZ regarding the feud: "For the record: Never called anybody a 'diabetic scam artist.' TMZ's words. Not mine."
On The Today Show Tuesday, Deen -- famous for her cooking up sugary, fatty, deep-fried Southern concoctions on her TV shows and in cookbooks -- revealed that she was diagnosed with the disease three years ago, and is now a paid spokesperson for Novo Nordisk, which treats the disease.
Bourdain has blasted Deen in the past as the "most dangerous person to America" who is "proud of the fact that her food is f---ing bad for you."
Deen retorted at the time that Bourdain should "get a life."
