Multi millions just doesn't happen without the consumer buying the books, cookware and tuning in to find out what high fat, high sugar, billion calorie dish that southern belle had so devilishly presented to our senses.

Now this gal in her 60's finds herself with diabetes, which was once called a 'disease of kings'. Does she turn to her loyal fans and help make sure they do not follow her evil fat soaked ways, NO...she puts her face on a drug. Just like many known diseases these days, take a pill for your ill.
So now the suspense! Does she keep cooking her recipes, the very same recipes that have made her soooo much money. Does she do her show with a disclaimer provided?
