Mashed Potato of the Day: Paula Deen Decides to Dance Like Everyone's Watching on "Dancing with the Stars'
The past few years haven't been much of a cakewalk for Paula Deen and it'll probably stay that way as the stigmatized celebrity chef tries to keep up with other C-list high-steppers.
She's going to be on the next season of Dancing with the Stars.
According to Variety:
The former Food Network star has reportedly been cast in season 21 of "Dancing With the Stars," along with Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor Espinoza and the previously announced Bindi Irwin of "Crocodile Hunter" fame.
Deen, who was dropped by the food cabler in 2013 after making headlines for racially charged comments, had been asked to join past seasons of "DWTS," though ABC declined to comment on her current casting.
It was only a few months ago that she took her most recent, brown-faced step into controversy. And we hope that she won't try to worm her way back into our arteries by performing any culturally sensitive dances.
Only twerking and the Electric Slide for her.
We proabbaly won't be watching.
