Anthony Bourdain was in Grand Cayman over the weekend at the Cayman Cookout and was asked his thoughts about Paula Deen and her diabetes announcement. He basically ripped her. He thinks she is a hypocrite for having people cook her signature dishes of doughnuts as a hamburger bun while at the same time knowing she has diabetes. He thinks she is even worse for positioning herself to make millions off the disease as a spokesperson for a drug company of the drug she is taking for her diabetes and she waited to make the announcement until she could profit off her announcement.

Anthony has never held back in anything he says or his disdain for many of the chefs or "cooks" on Food Network. It is odd that Paula waited three years to tell everyone while at the same time still cooking up dishes that are clearly not in the best interests health wise. That being said, I still love her food and have a had a few Krispy Kreme hamburgers in my day. I had to try it. Even I know it is horribly bad for you, but sometimes you just have to go for it.
