Even though she was offered a position on the hit ABC show Dancing With the StarsPaula Deen declined, y'all.

Deen's not the only star that's been courted for DWTS with no avail, though. Check out this list of celebrities that just don't want to pivot and pirouette themselves into our hearts.

Condi Too Conservative to Dance?

Condoleezza Rice wouldn't loosen up enough for Dancing With the Stars. Seems like the former Secretary of State was too conservative to be choreographed. (Not that she's a total square, though — she did appear on 30 Rock as a former paramour of Jack Donaghy's.)

Richard Branson Won't Be a Dancing Virgin

Virgin Mobile founder and gazillionaire Richard Branson was obviously too busy building his own personal rocketship to space to spend his precious time trifling with dance. 

Zuckerberg Doesn't "Like" Dancing

Creator of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg rejected an offer from ABC to be a primetime hit. Apparently his Facebook success was enough. But I'd love to see this pasty entrepreneur do a jazz number.
