Paula Deen, that bastion of moderation and recent convert to the church of Novo Nordisk after her not-so-recent diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, has a memoir out. Well, an Oprah-version of a memoir. Winfrey's magazine asks various celebs and non-celebs to succinctly sum up their lives in a "six-word memoir" in its February issue. Deen participated, and now's your chance to guess how her version reads. A Little Salad Wouldn't Kill You? Or maybe Sorry, America, for Glorifying Fatty Food? No. Deen's six-word take on life is: Might as Well Eat That Cookie.

Nemesis Anthony Bourdain still isn't impressed with Deen's antics, notes TMZ, tweeting, "Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business, so I can profitably sell crutches later." Click for more on Deen. (More Paula Deen stories.)
