Paula Deen will be a buttery contestant on this season’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’



Yes, Dancing with the Stars has been announcing their new season’s lineup of “stars” all week, and it’s a cavalcade of “who’s that again?” But on Wednesday, DWTS added someone very special to their lineup. Someone buttery. Someone racist. Someone who will do anything for any kind of comeback, y’all! Yes, that’s right! Paula Deen is going to be on Dancing with the Stars! Put some ham on the dance floor, she’ll be able to find her way there. I can’t wait to see how they incorporate butter and sugar into every dance routine. Like, they’ll dress her up like Betty Crocker and have her do the tango with a cupcake.

Just call her the comeback queen. Paula Deen will be taking a twirl on the dance floor this fall on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, a source confirms to Us Weekly. The former Food Network star turned down the offer to tango on TV last year because it was “not the appropriate forum for her,” a source told Us at the time.

Now, however, it appears that she’ll be joining the likes of Bindi Irwin and Nick Carter on the competitive dance floor (Us exclusively broke the news that the former boy bander, 35, will be joining the cast; Irwin, 17, announced her gig this past Monday on Good Morning America).

It was the summer of 2013 when everything really fell apart for Paula – that’s when she was deposed as part of an ongoing discrimination lawsuit involving her restaurants, and she ended up admitting that yes, of course she had used the n-word and sure, sugar, she liked to dress up her black employees like slaves, what of it? After that, Paula’s fall from butter-slathered grace was swift. She even tried to cry her way out of it on the Today Show but she ended up coming across as somewhat unhinged. Last year, she attempted some kind of comeback only it sort of blew up in her face when she compared her situation to “that black football player.” Then she made headlines again a few months ago when her people posted a photo of her son Bobby in “brownface” because of course. What I’m saying is that Paula is going to try to use DWTS to remake her image and if the past two years have been any indication, it’s going to blow up in her face yet again.

    will all her dance routines consist of them greasing the floor with Butter and letting her slide on the floor?? GOD I HOPE So!!

    I assume that there will be an Antebellum inspire Costume at least once

    • jugstorecowboy says:

      I’ve never watched that show in my life, but would definitely tune in to see that (the butter part).

    • kri says:

      Y’all just know she’s fixin to rip some green velvet curtains down to make herself a dress. this is going to be a visual nightmare.

    • BlueNailsBetty says:

      I’m praying she’ll dress up as Aunt Jemima so she can prove she TOTALLY LOVES the black folks; their syrup and pancake mix is delicious.

      Ugh. Why can’t this freak just go away?

    • Mixtape says:

      I’m just waiting for the part where she has her sons do the dancing for her while she sits off to the side making her own brand of over-enunciated “Southern” commentary, complete with cackles.

    • Ne Ne says:

      OMG!!! I swear I laughed so hard when I read your comment that soda came out of my nose! LOL!!

  2. Chichi says:

    She’ll probably win, her constituency actually watch this crap. They’ll have antebellum themed viewing parties, and drive around with their confederate flags everytime she gets through.

  3. PunkyMomma says:

    As this woman has absolutely no sense of shame, I expect many wardrobe malfunctions, accompanied by relentless sexual innuendos.

    Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel…

    • NGBoston says:

      Considering her Racist-Rant debacle… I consider this an extremely odd choice– especially since it is broadcast on ABC.

  6. OSTONE says:

    Ugh you would think that with her millions she would have already retired to her Savannah plantation to be her racist, disgusting self. But alas people know no boundaries or shame when they are attention pigs.

  7. lucy2 says:

    So I guess if you get outed for being a terrible racist, you only have to sit in time out for 2 years now? Shame on ABC for hiring her.

    • Kitten says:

      Don’t forget about the part where she protected her disgusting brother Bubba’s consistent sexual harassment of his employees.

      Yeah these are the people we should be rewarding. Sigh.

    • Ne Ne says:

      I couldn’t agree with you more!!!! You hit the nail right on the head!

  8. kri says:

    Insanity is writ large upon her visage. Cover that mess in sequins and Spanx and a spray tan??! Oh my!!!

  9. Pandy says:

    Geez, first Bindi Irwin, now this trick? Immagonna have to rethink watching Dancing With the Has Beens (and Never Weres).

    • Crack Fox says:

      Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys is gonna be on it too. I’ve never watched DWTS, but I have to this season. He may be the most popular of the group, but he’s also the worst dancer. Is gonna be a phenomenal sh*t show.

    • Sassy says:

      I watched DWTS when it first came on and hey had real recognizable stars as contestants – perhaps not A listers, but they were recognizable. As the years have passed, I don’t know or care who the contestants were, so I stopped watching. I will, however, tune in to watch Paula Dean do the quick step.

  10. Ne Ne says:

    They certainly scrapped the bottom of the barrel with this one. I have officially sworn off DWTS!!
