Paula Deen to Go Dancing With the Stars?

by at . Comments

Paula Deen has been laying low following her now-infamous racism scandal, which saw Food Network axe her show and her biggest sponsors cut ties with her.

At least one star wants to boost her comeback, however.

Dancing With the Stars' Cheryl Burke says Deen would make a great contestant, and that coming on board the ABC hit would help her image rehab.

“I think that you'd probably see a different side of her and I think she would be a great addition to the cast,” the pro ballroom dancer told ET Canada.

“Doing something light and fun would be good for her.”

Interestingly enough, Paula Deen had apparently been invited to join Dancing With the Stars back in 2010, but the queen of comfort food recipes declined.

“They did ask me and I said no,” she told Extra then.

“Fat girls don’t look good sweating!”

Since then, however, things have changed. Instead of the tried and true Paula Deen recipes, she has embraced a healthier lifestyle and lost weight.

In addition to dropping 40 pounds, she's been dropped by so many corporate partners that a stint on DWTS might be just the ticket to turning things around.

Jaybird369, you're the one who's stupid. Like you never used the N word before or listened to rappers who use it. I don't believe you just listen to M/M. You probably go walking down the street using it all the time, so get off Paula Deen's case and stop trying to use my name, you hypocrite. Deen would not be the first one off if she goes on DWTS because she's got lots of people who got her back. They should cover the floor with her ex-sponsors' logos and let Dean do an Irish step dance all over them. Better yet they should dress her up as a stick of butter and let her dance on them and all over your head too, you old fool jaybird 369.

Whoever you are, let's get a few things straight: (1) I don't believe in using the N word. (2) I don't listen to rap music because I'm more of a classic rock type of dude. (3) I am NOT trying to use your name (or whatever)...trust me...I am my own person. (4) I am NOT a hypocrite. (5) And, I am NOT an old fool. One final thing: VERY DEFIANT DEUCES TO YOU...whoever you are. Take care.

Let me see...Paula Deen on Dancing With The Stars??? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Gimme a fucking break...Paula is probably just going on DWTS to drum up some new publicity for herself and to keep herself/her name in the media. I don't think that anyone wants to see Paula's troubled and scandal-plagued ass competing on there...me included...LOL!!!!! If Paula does go on DWTS, I hope that her stupid ass is the first one to be eliminated/voted off. Dumb bitch.
