Paula DeenPAULA Deen has turned down the chance to appear on Dancing With the Stars.

The former Food Network star, 66, was asked to take part on the upcoming season of the ballroom smash — but she said no, according to Us Weekly.

“The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her,” a source said.

Deen was dropped by the Food Network in June after she admitted to once using the N-word during a videotaped deposition. She has also lost multiple endorsement deals.

Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars returns Monday, Sept. 16, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

Meanwhile, Paula and her husband Michael Groover are heading for divorce, it was recently claimed.
