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
