From the kitchen to the ballroom?!
While Paula Deen's N-word controversy is dominating headlines and caused Food Network, Target, Sears and others to part ways with the celebrity chef, it seems Dancing With the Stars isn't fazed by her current scandal. The ABC reality hit series is reportedly courting Deen to be a contestant on their upcoming 17th season, according to VH1's The Gossip Table.
ABC had no comment on Deen's possible casting, telling E! News, "We don't comment on casting rumors."
