Celebrity Chef Paula Deen is in the spotlight again, this time, for being photographed eating a giant cheeseburger.

Entertainment website TMZ published a photo taken onboard a cruise ship where Deen is hosting an annual vacation for fans. Witnesses say there were also french fries on her plate.

Deen has recently come under attack for hiding her Type-2 diabetes for three years, while pushing high-fat and high-calorie treats on her Food Network show.
