In an exclusive interview with "Showbiz Tonight," Nancy Grace and her “Dancing With the Stars” partner Tristan MacManus share their secrets to “Dancing” success. Nancy also speaks out about the controversy surrounding Chaz Bono competing on the show.
Nancy and Tristan have named themselves “Team MacGrace” and they are ready to take on the competition. They’ve been logging hours and hours of rehearsal time ahead of the premiere of “Dancing With the Stars” next Monday night.
Nancy says she’s focusing on winning that mirror ball trophy, not concentrating on the controversy surrounding Chaz Bono as a contestant on the show. Bono's participation as the first transgendered contestant drew some criticism, and Nancy hopes it will disappear once “Dancing With the Stars” premieres.
“I’m a lot less concerned about what he’s got in his pants than what he's got in his shoes," she says. "I just want to see if he can dance. That’s all I care about.”
Those are some great words from Nancy. Be sure to check out my full, exclusive interview with HLN’s Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus on "Showbiz Tonight" at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN. If you have any questions for Nancy Grace, be sure to submit an iReport - you could see the answer on CNN.com!
