Paula Deen is a very well known celebrity chef that specializes in southern cuisine, and she sat down with Al Roker this morning on 'Today' to discuss the rumor that she has diabetes, and Paula finally gives an honest answer.

Paula Deen makes it no secret that her recipes aren't exactly gracing the pages of healthy cookbooks, but her food is delicious, and I say you can eat anything you want...as long as it's in moderation.

This morning Paula did in fact confirm that she has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Paula is 64 years old and found out she had the disease three years ago during a routine physical. Deen made the personal decision to keep the news between her and her family until now so she could figure out how to tackle the disease with out the public scrutiny.
