Report: Avery to dance with the stars

Posted: February 28, 2014

FORMER NEW YORK Rangers center Sean Avery is set to appear on "Dancing With the Stars," according to a report.

Maybe it's time the show changed it's name to "Dancing with the Ex-Stars" or "Dancing with the Scars" (Avery made People's sexiest scars list in 2007 because of a gash on his lip).

According to the New York Post, Avery has been seen training at the New York studio of trainer Tracy Anderson, who has worked with Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez.

If Avery is looking for music to dance to, we suggest he select Elvis Costello's "Goon Squad."

Bite your tongue, Paula

Will somebody please put a muzzle on Paula Dean?

The celebrity chef, whose career went from sizzle to fizzle after she admitted she used the N-word in the past, will most likely have to eat another hefty portion of Southern crow.

In a recent interview with People, she tried to say she is fighting hard to restore her reputation. But it didn't quite come out that way.

Instead, she referenced Michael Sam, the defensive end from Missouri who recently announced he is gay.

"I feel like 'embattled' or 'disgraced' will always follow my name," Deen said. "It's like that black football player who recently came out. He said, 'I just want to be known as a football player. I don't want to be known as a gay football player.' I know exactly what he's saying."

No you don't, Paula.

Slime time

Minor league baseball promotions are the best.

The Toledo Mud Hens announced they will wear uniforms inspired by the film "Ghostbusters" on May 30.

The decision coincides with the 30th anniversary of the movie, which starred Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd and Harold Ramis, who died Monday at the age of 69.

The team plans to auction off the duds during the game with the money going to charity.
