PAULA Deen‘s reportedly getting divorced.
The TV cook — who has shed nearly 45 pounds and toyed with the idea of getting plastic surgery to tighten up her loose skin — has sparked speculation she’s set to split from husband Michael Groover.
“Paula is showing all the signs of someone who’s plotting to make a break from her marriage, and rumors are swirling all over Savannah (Ga.) that she and Michael are heading for Splitsville,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“Quite a few people around town are suggesting maybe there’s a lot more to Paula’s drastic weight loss than a newfound health consciousness.”
Paula — who’s made a big deal about adopting a healthier lifestyle since announcing she had Type 2 diabetes in early 2012 — had actually been diagnosed with the disease years before.
“That has everyone wondering why she’s suddenly decided to drop all that weight now,” the source said.
Michael, 57, had previously suggested Paula undergo plastic surgery to look and feel her best, but Paula, 66, refused to consider it.
“Now,” said the source, “she seems to have done a complete about-face and is considering having the work done.
“There’s been talk of divorce for years, but Paula and Michael have managed to stay together through thick and thin.
“Only time will tell what their future holds.”
