Paula Deen has pretty much nothing at this point, so if she was offered the opportunity to be on season 17 (yeah, 17 seasons) of Dancing With The Stars, I’m thinking she would take it. Would they dare offer? Maybe. The producers of DWTS seem to love a good comeback and redemption story (see Andy Dick, season 16.)
It’s just a rumor right now. From VH1 via Pure Dancing With The Stars:
Looks like Paula Deen is serving one dish that The Gossip Table doesn’t want to eat. And anyone else for that matter. Rob Shuter reports that the former Food Network star has been dropped Walmart and several other sponsors. However, she may seek redemption through reality TV. Rumor has it that she’s been approached to be on Dancing With The Stars.
Yeah, that’s pretty much it, that’s all the info there is. However, Indy 500 winner Tony Kanaan is apparently “in talks” with joining the cast. He told Hollywood Life that, “If it’s the right time, I’ll definitely accept it and go try it.”
Here are more rumored cast members, or wishful thinking:
– Jon Gosselin
– Khloe Kardashian
– Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean
Would you watch Paula Deen on Dancing with the Stars?
Dancing with the Stars is where celebrities go to die, generally speaking. Unless you’re, like, Kirstie Alley, you won’t be experiencing a career renaissance as you awkwardly lurch your way through an Argentine Tango with Anna Trebunskaya (wanted to think of the most ‘out there’ professional, obvs) in an ill-fitted spandex suit. It’s just not going to happen. Two Kardashians have already been there – whaddup, Kim & Rob? – but here’s the question: would another tread the same path? Will it be Khloe? DWTS professional Cheryl Burke – who was paired with Rob during his season – certainly hopes so.
From Life & Style:
“Khloe’s got to do it,” Cheryl says. “I think she would be amazing. I think she would actually win the whole thing. She looks great, and I think she has natural rhythm and I think she would be amazing.”
Khloe was approached to do the show before (probably before Rob and he did it as a runner-up, of sorts) but turned it down because it’s hard as hell and “working” – other than in front of a camera – ain’t in the Kardashian vocabulary. Now that LamLam‘s been ditched from his NBA team and she doesn’t have much else going on, though, I guess I could see it happening.
I’ve said before that Khloe is my fav Kardashian and that still stands – less of the evils and all – but Dancing with the Stars is even worse than American Idol. It should be burned to the ground, never to be mentioned again.
Sean Lowe of The Bachelor is a surprise addition to Dancing with the Stars. Announced this morning on Good Morning America, Mr. Lowe with dance partner Peta Murgatroyd will join luminaries Andy Dick and Wynonna Judd among others on season 16 of ABC’s reality dancing show.
AND I AM SO PUMPED.
Did you guys watch The Bachelor finale? Sean chose Catherine, who seems okay but barely got any screen time and isn’t nearly as much of an audience favorite as runner-up Lindsay. Sean also really, really didn’t want to break up with Lindsay but he had to because that’s the nature of the show yet he also liked Catherine but one of them had to go, so he told Lindsay, “I have no real reason to break up with you” and “I love you” and sent her on her way and then proposed to Catherine a few hours later. GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW.
He and Catherine are going to marry on TV. Bachelor Biceps wants to make something clear though:
I’ve always said I’m not looking for fame. In fact, I don’t like the fame aspect of The Bachelor or Dancing With the Stars. But when an opportunity like Dancing comes along, it’s too good to pass up. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I wouldn’t have taken it had Catherine not been OK with it. She’s fully supporting me. She’s in my corner. She’s going to be on this crazy ride with me.
Translation: Oh my God you guys they paid me so much money you have no freaking idea, I can’t even, you guys, you guys if I could show you this check you would understand, I can’t even, you guys.
On Bachelor Biceps surprise addition, Andy Dick said,
Oh Lord. If he has those guns and he’s got the dance moves, then watch out America.
Translation: Oh my God you guys I am going to have try THAT MUCH HARDER to keep everyone’s attention on me at all times, you guys, you guys, oh my God.
