Do you think Paula is putting her career before her health?

The Deen family business is getting messy, y’all! Paula Deen has decided to endorse the $500-a-month diabetes drug Victoza, even though she’d already been taking a different medication, and Page Six reports that her sons are furious with their mother! A source reveals Jamie, 44, and Bobby, 41, are “worried about [their mother’s] health and didn’t want her to switch drugs.”

Jamie and Bobby were so upset, the source alleges, that they threatened to quit Artists Agency, which represents Paula. But Paula put the breaks on their plan and “managed to persuade them to stay on with the family management.”

Paula, 65, announced Jan. 17 on the Today show that she was diagnosed with Typer 2 diabetes three years ago.

Keep eating your deep-fried crap and switching medications, Paula. If you’re lucky, you’ll only lose a couple of toes to diabetes! Greedy, greedy, greedy…
