Paula Deen's deep-fried career could use a lifesaver in the shape of a mirrorball, Dancing with the Stars' dancer Cheryl Burke says, predicting the disgraced chef would make "a great addition to the cast" of the ABC hit.

"I think you'd probably see a different side of her," the stunner, 29, told ET Canada. "I think coming on something light and fun would be something good for her."

In 2010 -- back when her career was sizzling -- Deen, 66, told Extra that she'd passed on doing the ABC reality competition.

"Fat girls don't look good sweating," she said. "I've got catfish arms ... and I've got … is that a muffin top right there?"

Of course, Deen's career has taken a swift downturn this summer, as a lawsuit from a former employee exposed her use of the N-word; and a subsequent disaster in managing the career crisis only hastened her descent.

Dancing with the Stars returns this fall.
