Watch: Paula Deen Flashes Her Red "DWTS" Underwear

"She's turned into a flasher! Nice Southern girls don't do that!"

Dancing With the Stars saw a whole new side of Paula Deen on Monday night, thanks to the Switch-Up. The celebrity chef performed a fun jive with Mark Ballas, which included lifting up her red skirt. And once she started, Paula couldn't stop lifting her skirt, leading judge Bruno Tonioli to call her "a flasher."

But when Paula and Mark caught up with E! News backstage after the show, we learned there was actually a reason for the flashing: Her undergarments had a phrase on it: Shake it! 

And yes, Deen shows off the message in the video above...after giving us snickerdoodles straight from her purse.

"I loved being with Mark because he just wanted me to let my personality take over," Deen gushed, adding that their jive "has been my favorite [performance] ever since it started." 

And Mark had just as much fun, telling us, "I was really proud of it."

DWTS airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
