This is incredibly brave!

If Paula Deen makes the right steps towards making amends for all the crappy things she's done, we think this might not be such a bad idea once the world is open to moving on! Health-wise it's a no brainer. Popularity-wise, we don't see it happening any time soon!
According to Cheryl Burke, though, Paula would make a 'great addition' to the squad! She said:
“I think you’d probably see a different side of her. I think coming on something light and fun would be something good for her.”
You might not know this, but Paula actually passed on the show a while back — before this whole racism mess. This is what she said back in 2010 about it:
“Fat girls don’t look good sweating. I’ve got catfish arms … and I’ve got … is that a muffin top right there?”
We're not sure we want someone that demeaning and self-depricating in the public eye anymore, regardless of the racism allegations! Being hard on yourself is the WORST, when there's always something you can do about it!
We've seen Paula lose a bunch of weight since then, but she's totally gained what she's lost back in mistrust and un-likability. Maybe some day, though!
