Paula Deen is leaving the kitchen for the ballroom.
The former Food Network star has reportedly been cast in season 21 of “Dancing With the Stars,” along with Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor Espinoza and the previously announced Bindi Irwin of “Crocodile Hunter” fame.
Deen, who was dropped by the food cabler in 2013 after making headlines for racially charged comments, had been asked to join past seasons of “DWTS,” though ABC declined to comment on her current casting.
Carter will also compete for the Mirror Ball trophy in season 21. The official “DWTS” Twitter blasted out the news Wednesday morning, tweeting, “We’re not playing games with your heart,” referring to lyrics from the famous Backstreet Boys song.
The boy-bander, who rose to superstardom in the ’90s, also confirmed his casting on Twitter, complete with a throwback dance video to his Backstreet days.

Just call her the comeback queen. Paula Deen will be taking a twirl on the dance floor this fall on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, a source confirms to Us Weekly. The former Food Network star turned down the offer to tango on TV last year because it was “not the appropriate forum for her,” a source told Us at the time. Now, however, it appears that she’ll be joining the likes of Bindi Irwin and Nick Carter on the competitive dance floor (Us exclusively [...] »

During a tenure of more than 12 years, Johnson supervised the birth of programs such as “Chopped,” “Cutthroat Kitchen,” “Food Network Star” and “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” expanding the Food Network aegis from celebrity chefs to reality programming.

Crouching Geisha, Infuriating Elimination.
If this week’s So You Think You Can Dance had to be summed up by a twist on an Oscar-winning movie title — and let’s be honest, what major life scenario couldn’t/shouldn’t fall under those terms? — then what better way to express the joy of Gaby’s Japanese-inspired hip-hop number and Edson’s blow-to-the-gut exit at the exact moment he broke on through to the future all-star side?

As a […]

Jackson himself admits that his strong start — the judges loved his food almost as much as his on-camera charisma — had him thinking, “I could actually win this thing.” But after the former NFL pro and MasterChef vet made a few stumbles midway through the season, he realized the competition was “so much harder than I thought it would be. Food Network Star is all about you — your personality and your cooking skills. »
So I shan’t say another word about how irksome it was to spend tonight’s Season 11 finale watching pilot episodes that relegated the Top 3 finalists — Dom, Jay and Eddie — into roles that could’ve been filled by a Kardashian with a Teleprompter*, while abandoning each of their culinary POVs. (Sorry, I shouldn’t put such horrific concepts out into the universe — and I accept full responsibility if Kourtney and Khloe Take the Kitchen is greenlit in the next six months. »

It’s been six days since Facebook launched its celebrity-only live video service and Hollywood is logging on to take it for a stream. Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Ricky Gervais, Stephen Amell and Michael Bublé are just some of the stars who have broadcast publicly to fans on Facebook Live from the gym, from the car and even the bathtub. For sheer volume, Ricky Gervais’ daily streams seem intent on turning his heat-seeking cat Ollie into a viral star, while Food Network star Alton Brown used his inaugural Facebook stream for a live cooking demo, turning a second-screen experience into the main event. »

Imagine going to see a summer blockbuster where the superhero sits out the last 15 minutes to search the internet for the best price on matching tights and capes.
That’s essentially what went down on the penultimate Season 11 episode of Food Network Star, where Bobby and Giada (with some help from Bob and Susie) picked the correct Top 3 — and then sent them off to make pilots where none of ’em so much as brought water to a boil.
