Wow, pretty much nobody agreed with Paula Deen's decision to endorse this diabetes drug!
Her two sons almost walked out on the family — but for a reason other than just "this is greedy."
Though, that was probably a part of it. They were actually upset because it was putting her health in jeopardy!
She had already been on a diabetes medication and responding really well to it, and switching to the $500 a month drug could have been a disaster for her health!
A source said they:
“were worried about her health and didn’t want her to switch drugs. She had been taking a different drug for a while, and was doing very well. They didn’t see any reason to change that. However, she appears to be doing equally well on the new treatment. Jamie and Bobby were so upset when the deal was being put together in October, they wanted to jump ship from Artists and the people behind the deal with Novo Nordisk. They were in a panic, and set up a meeting with William Morris Endeavour. [Paula] put them both under a lot of pressure and managed to persuade them to stay on with the family management. They canceled the WME meeting 24 hours beforehand.”
We'd be upset too, to have to deal with a loved one toying around with their health like that!
Oh wait, didn't she toy around with her health for YEARS by eating all that unhealthy food?? They should be upset at the whole picture!
Wouldn't U be??
