Michelle Beadle reemerged on social media to show love to her former ESPN colleague Paul Pierce after the Celtics legend was fired by the network following his stripper-clad social media antics over the weekend. A source confirmed to The Post’s Andrew Marchand Monday that the network and NBA analyst parted ways.

In response to a video Pierce posted letting fans know that he’s in great spirits despite losing his job, Beadle wrote, “Looks like our cooking and dance show can finally happen.” Beadle, who was known for her witty sarcasm during her tenure as host of ESPN’s “NBA Countdown” among other shows, added, “You book the dancers. I’ll grab some grub. Boom. Emmy.”

The latter was a nod to Pierce’s racy Instagram Live video on April 2, which included partially nude women at an undisclosed party in LA.

News of Pierce’s firing didn’t deter The Truth’s good mood, though.

“Yo, I just want to thank all my supporters and thank my haters and everything,” Pierce said Monday. He noted that there’s “bigger and better things coming baby — don’t worry about it.”

Pierce followed up with an encouraging message: “You fall twice, you get up three times, but just always remember to smile baby.” The 43-year-old, who rocked tinted Aviators, stroked his goatee with a smirk and assured fans that he’s “good.”
