That's such good news!

Dancing With The Stars is gearing up for its 21st season and announcing its contestants!
Earlier today, we reported Backstreet Boy Nick Carter is already on board and Chaka Khan, aka the Queen of Funk, is also supposed to be joining. But now it looks like the show felt it needed a little bit of controversy.
They've decided to add former Food Network star Paula Deen to compete for the coveted mirrorball trophy.
We've heard rumors about some of the possible contenders this year, but this one really caught us by surprise!
Frankly, it seems quite a bit of an odd choice as she's been involved in more than one scandal the last couple years.
Back in 2013 it came out that she used racial slurs, which ultimately caused her to lose
Paula Deen is NOT owning up to her latest racist scandal!
Just hours after Deen shared a throwback pic of herself AND her son in brown face, the Georgia native gave an excuse for the tasteless and offensive photo. Unsurprisingly, the chef barely took responsibility for the gaffe…
According to the 68-year-old's rep, her social media manager posted the pic without her consent and the employee in question was subsequently fired. PD explained:
"Paula Deen's Social Media Manager posted a picture this morning of Paula and Bobby Deen dressed in costume as Lucy and Ricky, from I Love Lucy. This photograph is from a Halloween episode of Paula's Best Dishes that aired in 2011. Paula immediately had this picture taken down as soon as she saw the post and apologizes to all who were offended. As such, Paula Deen Ventures has terminated their relationship with this Social Media Manager."
Hmm, very…inneresting. If a social media manager did in fact post this snap, they must have forgotten about Paula's racist past!
So, do YOU believe Deen's excuse?

Paula Deen and Donald Trump don't know when to quit.
On Tuesday, Paula shared a throwback pic of herself and her son clad in brown face for a 2011 taping of her hit cooking show, Paula's Best Dishes. While Deen didn't see anything wrong with the snap, her fans were outraged that the cooking star would post such an offensive picture after she was sued in 2013 for racial discrimination.
Sheesh, do these people ever learn?!
Speaking of people who don't seem to catch on quick, Donald continues to bombard the news with his INSANE comments about immigrants from Mexico even after his business partners and friends continue to jump ship. After all is said and done, we doubt DT will ever apologize!
So, we have to ask: who's the more offensive TV star? Decide (below)!
Who's a bigger racist?

Oh no! Some people never learn!
This time, the former Food Network star posted a photo of herself and son Bobby Deen doing an homage to I Love Lucy.
Unfortunately, for them dressing up as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz (we'll skip right past the Ewww that is a mother and son dressing as a couple) meant putting Bobby into brownface:
Remember about a year ago when Paula Deen's world came crashing down around her?
After a court deposition from a lawsuit was made public, everyone found out that Paula had made racist remarks and used hateful slurs before, even though the instances were years in the past.
After all that went down, Paula was dropped by her major business partners, like Food Network, QVC, Target, and Walmart.
After a really bad year and a lot of soul searching, Paula Deen is back and on the air!
Paula Deen has been cooking up a treat… and it's not in the kitchen!
Paula Deen Ventures just made the big announcement:
Paula is going on tour!!
Yuppers, Paula Deen, queen of Southern cuisine, will be heading out on a 20-show nationwide tour.
The tour is called Paula Deen Live! and it's going to be a 90-minute, interactive show with all sorts of
