August 30, 2015 I Written By

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

PureDWTS Season 21 Late-Breaking Casting Rumors: Paula Deen & Chaka Khan???

In what is quickly becoming one of those days where the leaks and info and breaking fast & loose, E! News is reporting that controversial former Food Network chef Paula Deen and R&B legend Chaka Khan are part of this season’s cast.  See more below and at the link:

Controversial celebrity chef Paula Deen is joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars, multiple sources exclusively tell E! News.

Our sources also exclusively tell us that Grammy-winning music icon Chaka Khan, aka the Queen of Funk, will also be competing in season 21 when it premieres on Sept. 14.  ABC does not comment on casting rumors.

As with many other celebs, this isn’t the first time Paula has been asked – she apparently first got asked back in 2010, but turned them down as “fat girls don’t look good sweating”. Our own records have her popping up as a rumor in multiple seasons. Say what you will about Paula, but I love her – she reminds me of my dearly departed southern Grammy, and while her food will land you in an early grave if you eat it all the time…man, is it good. :-)

As for Chaka – I’m gonna call her “Keo bait” cause she seems like exactly the type of celeb they dream of sticking him with.

What are your thoughts?
