Well, it appears Paula Deen has said “No” to an offer to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 17! Below is more from US Weekly….
Paula Deen is passing on the paso doble. In the Aug. 19 issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday), a Dancing With the Stars source says the former Food Network star, 66, turned down an offer to compete on the ABC smash.
“The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her,” explains a Deen source. (The Paula’s Best Dishes host was dropped by the Food Network in June after she admitted to once using the N-word during a videotaped deposition. The Southern star has also lost multiple endorsement deals.)
Dancing With the Stars co-host Tom Bergeron, for one, would love for Deen to reconsider. “We’ve seen career resurgences after the show,” he tells Us. “People go, ‘I remember why I love that person!'”
