He grew up in a traditional Southern home with a traditional Southern kitchen, complete with meals made by his now-famous Mom and some of their fattening ingredients. Now, Bobby Deen is spreading a healthy message with his new Cooking Channel show "Not My Mama's Meals", and also through a diabetes awareness campaign - Paula Deen disclosed recently that she has Type 2 diabetes.
Bobby visited Indianapolis recently and spoke to me about his mother's diagnosis, the controversy it caused among some, his new show and his own lifestyle change that was not dictated by a health problem.
