Paula Deen Not Keen to Be Seen on 'DWTS'
Beleaguered former Food Network star Paula Deen doesn’t think a spin on the “Dancing with the Stars” floor would be a good idea.
A source told UsWeekly.com that Deen, 66, declined an offer to compete on the ABC dance competition show, saying, "The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her."
“DWTS” co-host Tom Bergeron told Us he would love for Deen to reconsider. "We've seen career resurgences after the show. People go, 'I remember why I love that person!'"
The new “DWTS” cast will be announced September 4 on “Good Morning America,” with Season 17 returning Monday, September 16.
