Paula Deen, the HGTV celebrity chef, was given a chance to show off her phenomenal estate in Savannah, Georgia last night on an episode of Nancy O Dell’s, Celebrities at Home. Deen, known for her tasty home cooked meals, said she wants to be known for something other than the butter she puts in her meals.

“When you hear the name Paula Deen,” she said, “I want you to think of the word ‘hope.’

The cook recently went public about her struggle with type 2 diabetes, admitting she didn’t know much about it when she was diagnosed two years ago. Yet, she wanted to be able to enjoy the foods she loved.

“It was really something that I had to digest,” Paula explained on an episode of The Chew, “I’ve always been the type of person to overcome adversaries and I had nothing to bring to the table … I didn’t know anything about it.”
