We've seen Paula Deen try to wiggle out of trouble over her N-word scandal, but we won't get to see her wiggle her butt on Dancing With the Stars.
The celeb chef has reportedly turned down an offer to compete on the ABC show. An insider explains, "The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her."
Dancing With the Stars co-host Tom Bergeron tells Us Weekly he'd love for Paula to reconsider. "We've seen career resurgences after the show. People go, 'I remember why I love that person!'"
The 17th season kicks off September 16th. The new cast will be announced September 4th on Good Morning America.
