Paula Deen Turns Down Dancing with the Stars

There will no redemption on the dance floor for Paula Deen. The disgraced cooking show hostess and former Smithfield Hams spokeshole has wisely turned down a spot of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, six weeks after it was reported that she fired her manager. A Deen paid friend representative told Us Magazine:

The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her.

Well bless her heart, it certainly isn’t, despite DWTS co-host Tom Bergeron telling Us:

We’ve seen career resurgences after the show. People go, ‘I remember why I love that person!

In Paula’s case, she’d probably get voted off immediately, adding to her humiliation and reinforcing that someone who cosigns sexual harassment and racism while disrespecting and degrading 

people that she deems to be inferior

just aren’t real popular.  And an appearance on DWTS isn’t a guarantee for long-term success. Just ask Bristol Palin.
