Paula Deen found herself in a bad spot after she confessed that she has used the ‘n’ word in her past. And her sit-down interview with Matt Lauer on The Today Show didn’t help the former Food Network star – after that interview Walmart and other sponsors continued to drop her. But now, Paula has an opportunity to Waltz her way back into the American public’s heart – by competing on Dancing With The Stars!
“The producers would love to have Paula join the cast of next season,” one ABC insider tells THE GOSSIP TABLE. “They have a history of casting controversial people like Kate Gosselin and Bristol Palin, if Paula says ‘yes,’ you can add her to that list.”
“We don’t comment on casting,” a spokesperson for the show tells Naughty But Nice Rob, ”and haven’t announced the premiere date for the new season yet. Sorry!”
UPDATED: Ballantine Books announced it has cancelled the publication of “Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up”.
Even though the book does not come out until October, it’s already #1 on Amazon with pre-order sales.
