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.”
