Grab your butter beans and potato salad, because Paula Deen’s about to bust a move on next season’s Dancing With the Stars. We know Deen can whip (butter), but can she Nae Nae? According to E!, Deen is set to join the dance-competition show. Hopefully she’ll be able to keep up with the likes of former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and possibly Chaka Khan, who is in talks to join the show.

The 68-year-old embattled cook has had a tough couple of years. Paula’s Best Dishes and Paula's Home Cooking were both canceled after she admitted to using the n-word. But thankfully, that caused her expensive cookware to be discounted at outlet stores everywhere.


Maybe Deen will be able to tap-dance her way back into the good graces of America. The new season of DWTS premieres Monday, Sept. 14, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
