HLN's Nancy Grace to take the 'Dancing' stage

She’s known for her passion and strong point of view on her namesake HLN show. But on the next season of "Dancing with the Stars," Nancy Grace will unleash her quickstep and her tango.

The legal commentator was one of 12 celebrities announced for the 13th season of the hit ABC show, which premieres September 19.

Joining Grace to compete for the Mirrorball trophy are:

David Arquette - The eccentric actor hopes to place the Mirrorball on his trophy case next to the WCW World Heavyweight Championship title belt he inexplicably won in 2000.

Chaz Bono - The actor, writer and activist was a contestant on VH1’s “Celebrity Fit Club” in 2008.

Carson Kressley - The stylist and TV personality served as “fashion savant” on Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.”

J.R. Martinez - The retired soldier and motivational speaker has played Brot Monroe on “All My Children” since 2008.

Ron Artest - Of course, the controversial basketball star could be competing as “Metta World Peace” if his name change gets approved before or during the tournament.

Rob Kardashian - Will the reality TV star do better than sister Kim, who finished 11th in the fall 2008 season of “Dancing”?

Chynna Phillips - The singer hopes to hold on for more than just one day on the dance floor.

Elisabetta Canalis - The Italian actress and TV host is best known to U.S. audiences for her two-year relationship with George Clooney, which came to an end earlier this year.

Hope Solo - The U.S. women’s World Cup soccer goalkeeper could join the long list of athletes who’ve had success on the “Dancing” floor.

Kristin Cavallari - The "Hills" star hopes her run on “Dancing” lasts longer than her hosting gig on “Get the Party Started,” which lasted all of two weeks on UPN in 2006.

Ricki Lake - The actress and talk show host might be preparing for her first dance at her wedding reception. Lake announced her engagement to jewelry designer Christian Evans earlier this month.

What do you think of this season’s “Dancing” stars?

    I think Nancy Grace is wonderful. She only tells it like it is! She is very intellegent and nothing gets by her. She has been through a lot of adversity in her life time and has turned it around for the good. Shame on all of you who find it so easy to criticize her. Maybe you should look at your own lives and see what you can do to better the world!

    Nearly all of the "stars" are dramatic or controversial, and at that, LIBERAL. I heard Nancy Grace during the Casey Anthony trial and was disgusted. She's in no way fair, or balanced or anything but instigative. Ricki Lake? Really? Chaz? Metta World Peace? ROFL. I'm not saying all of these people don't have good intentions and all that, but they're also all drowning in the deep end of the CRAZY pool. This line-up doesn't strike well with "conservative" or "family friendly" anymore. I won't be watching :/

    The only dance Nancy Grace can do is the tap dance she does to people on her show when she asks a question AND then interupts them to give her own answer as if she's right all the time.Why is she so rude and discounts everyone around her, I bet her kids will grow up scared to talk. But that's just my thought as I flip past her show.

Do you think he actually likes the way your all talking about him with your insults? Do you think that's why he changed his gender just to be crucified by you people? Really? ~MARY~

  55. is it poetry


    by isitpoetry

    These lips are big lips.
    They need more open space to
    wrap them selves around.
    They don't fit onto smug pouty little
    pretty faces, these lips
    are full wide and free lips.
    They don't like to be kept empty.
    Wet these lips have never been without,
    they move up north when they want to
    they go south when they need to.
    What they do.
    is none of your buisness,
    now i smile as you wish it were you.
    Mine are rich pink firm hard to grasp lips
    and these mighty lips,
    have sunk more than my share of ships.
    Lips that are tragic.
    Lips never loose.
    Would you could but too know them.
    They pull the oil right out of the ground,
    and on a man they will never be found.

      I dunno what your poem had to do with Nancy (dis)Grace, so here's one back atcha:

      Nancy Grace Lips.

      Nancy Grace lost her lips!
      Did they fall off, or did she get smitten?
      Trimmed with tin-snips
      Mutilated or self-bitten?

      Skeletal now she smiles
      (is that a smile of such)
      When she stops talking
      (which still isn't much)

      Her nasty nasal voice
      Obnoxious as ever,
      Leaves the listener no choice
      but understand her never

      As her Words, words, words
      an intelligible few do come out
      But most are formed with lips
      they are just noise without.

      Lend Nancy your lips,
      She is not a man
      On her face, or her hips...
      Do you think you can?

She really does care about those children. She can get on my nerves when she is too "Mrs. Prosecuter", but that's what she did for a living for many years.

    How quickly we forget. There was considerable vitriole in previous seasons when it was announced that Kate Gosselin and Bristol Palin were going dancing. I remember reading many, many comments similar to the negative ones posted here. And guess what? Those seasons also topped the ratings. Controversy is part of this show... it's what the producers are going for because it does pique people's interest. I remember thinking: "Kelly Osbourne? Ballroom dancing? Are you kidding?" but she showed a lot of heart and was fun to watch. Don't pre-judge the entire season and cast before they even step onto the dance floor. I'll watch, I'll vote and in the end, I hope the best dancer wins.

    For all you NancyGrace Fanatics aka idiots.... You all easily forget the spanish girl who killed herself because this self proclaimed savoir once again JUDGED someone she had no idea of ANY facts other than ratings hype and grandstanding! Then after it was PROVED the girl had nothing to do with the kiddnapping of her daughter Nancy Discrace issued NO appology or admittance of guilt (the thing she demands from the accussed) to the family of the poor young lady. 1 dead girl doesn't make up for ANY of the good you all think or claim she does.

    I am so excited to see Chaz Bono and see if he takes this opportunity to enlighten poeple in this country about gender transitions- and I'm sure he will since he's such an amazing advocate and voice for this. People that go through gender transitions go through so much- first the traumatic experience of being forced in to a box you know doesn't fit and then having to "come out" to your family and friends, many of which will shut you out of their life for being who you are. It is not a pleaseant experience for transgendered folk, nor is it something they do for kicks. 50% of transgendered youth will attempt suicide. All you on here calling Chaz a freak and condemning him are clear examples of why. And for the recored- HE wil be dancing with a female dancer. Don't be so ignorant and hateful to say otherwise. If you're not sleeping with him, why should you care what's going on in his pants? I guarantee you everyone has had interactions with a transgendered person- you just may not have known it. And before people start making rude, ignorant comments- no, I am not trangendered....just EDUCATED.

It might interest some of the pseudo-scientists here to know that chromosomes are not the whole story. Sometimes nature makes her own cross-gender people. Do you hate on them too? Or do you just hate on everyone who isn't "perfect" like you?

    I just thrilled there are no professional dancers, singers who had dance lessons to dance in their videos, ice skaters, etc. Don't care for the list of dancers either, but at least this is getting back to what I thought the show was about - taking a known name out of their element and teach them how to dance.

    I once loved this fun, little show. Now, it's a gimmicky freak show with phoney results. Haven't watched it in 3 years. I guess it's for the 'Wipeout' crowd. Do they cast this show so no one watches, or am I oblivious to the interests of the lowest common denominator? Rabid Nancy disGrace will bite the ankles of the rest of the cast.
    (and no – she has NO interest in the victims. She is only after the ratings, glory and mega-cash. So what if she's 'donating her prize money' – she makes millions, and is getting the free exposure – to the 'lighter side of NG'. UGH)

It is like Jerry Springer somehow-people putting themselves in spotlight when they have to know the mockery and jeering and never-live-it-down U-tube replays they will be in for.

I have NEVER watched an episode and never will, but to say you won't be watching this season because you don't like one of the people on the show just shows how idiotic some people really are.

    I haven't watched for the past two seasons because of lack of true "Stars" on the show. However, in spite of the other lackluster contestants this year I would like to see how Nancy does. In spite of the many rude and offensive comments about her being posted here – she is a compassionate person. She fights for what she believes in and champions the victims in a society that at times protects the villian at the cost of justice. Also, Nancy has written a couple of decent murder mystery novels that are actually quite entertaining. She isn't just another empty head. Melodramatic at times but I do believe she is honest and sincere in her causes.

Its the case of mean people commenting on mean people. Only mean people would go out of their way to make vicious comments. NG does not promote hate like Michele Bachmann or others that are really mean people. But on the other hand exercise your freedom of speech and say what you want and also get a life mean people.

    You people are pathetic, all you can complain about is Namcy Grace and Chaz? They are hitting the bottom of the barrel, but not with them. Elisabetta Canalis, why her? The only reason we know her is because she dated George Clooney, big deal. Hope Solo. She's not a star, maybe in her field, but I'd bet most people don't even know who she is. Get a clue. I bet DWTS goes to many 'stars' to ask them to dance and they turn it down, then they have to start asking anyone, so they can fill the slot, before the show gets aired. I think they need to put people on the show that the majority of the public knows. I really like the show, but I'm less inclined to watch it a a bunch of no-namers on.

    Looks like I'm on lonely ground, but I think the lineup is great! Super casting job. I don't particularly care for Nancy Grace, but people that love her will watch and people that hate her will watch to see her fall on her face. Transgendered people are still rare enough that Chaz will draw interest from the enlightened as well as the prejudiced. There are a few beauties to look at, sports stars to root for, or not, reality star, and even a minor film star. Most are controversial and have been in the news recently. People will definitely watch!!! And so will all you naysayers.

    On the one hand, she's passionate about victims and if a loved one of mine were ever a victim, I'd almost want her on my side.... WITH THE PROVISION that I have an air-tight alibi because Nancy Grace makes assumptions without facts and I would absolutely loathe being under her asinine microscope.

    On the other hand, I hope she makes a fool out of herself on Dancing with the Stars.

    She makes me love to hate her. And that translates to ratings, whether I like it or not.

    Thought she could not handle being away from her twins for so long. But then again maybe she can dance with one on each hip and cry her crocodile tears each time she gazes on them. No doubt she will have the other contestants and dancers screened since in her mind everyone but her is a pervert. And if she gets a poor score she can have that Susan with the loud mouth screaming that the judges should be put away for the rest of their lives because no doubt they have to be guilty of something.

Then they throw in a couple of athletic & coordinated people who they assume will make it to the finals.

      Darn, I love DWTS, but will not be watching it in protest of Nancy Grace being on the program. She is shrill, vulgar and low class. Basically, she's the Jerry Springer of news. I switch the channel every time I hear her screech; can the woman even speak in a normal voice? Ugh!

      Give Nancy Grace a break you guys! Yes, she's dramatic and I think that personalty will show in her dancing. I can't wait to see her. One thing you can say about Nancy, she won't let a criminal get away with anything. She's definitely a victims advocate. GO NANCY!!!

      I'll watch the first show just to see who has to dance with Chaz and Carson – will they have male of female partners? NGrace is a pig. This year's line up is pathetic. Won't watch anything more than the first show.

      So much for her being a "professional" journalist. Shows her true colors – a red neck white trash reality star. Hope that mirror ball falls into her big fat mouth and shuts that shrew up for good!

      To the creature that posted, quite a few times throughout this thread, that Nancy Grace "at least" is donating her proceeds to charity, and you wish any other "Star" would do this–did you not even watch the above video? In said video, NBA player Ron Artest mentions his daughter, who had cancer when she was four, and how he is donating ALL of his proceeds to cancer charities. Many other previous cast members have donated to charities of their personal choice. Sorry–Nancy Grace did not invent this phenomenon, though she would surely like people to believe as such. Chickie, meet case in point.

      Why don't they call this show "Dancing with people you may have seen on television".. There are no stars here and there hasn't been on this show for sometime.

    • Nancy Disgrace

      Nancy Disgrace is an absolute joke and needs to be removed from television all together. Who wants to see this hateful nut on what is supposed to be a fun family show? I've personally never cared for the show but they have gone to a whole new low with adding Nancy Disgrace. I'd watch if they would have partnered her up with Casey Anthony...now that would be worth viewing.

    • Really Now?

      DWTS is my 2nd favorite show and I try not to miss an episode. I will definitely be watching this season and every season they have after. It dosen't matter to me who the "Celebrities" are. I think the Professional's are the real Star's, especially Max! As for Nancy Grace you can hate her all you want but you know who she is and judging by the attention she's getting and bringing that same attention to ABC/DWTS just proves they made wise choice by picking her just look at the comments.. she got yours and the media's attention.. I'm sure 98% of the people who say they not gonna watch will not miss an episode and the other 2% will you tube it the next day!!! I hope she gets Max I want to see him break thur that hard as steel body armor she has, break her down and rebuild her... although she's not my favorite person and I disagree with almost everything she has to say, it is an sxcellent choice. I'm rooting for Carson!!!! Max if you're reading this please teach me how to dance... best of luck to everyone!

      This will be my first year to boycott DWTS. This has become a freak show, not a dance contest. The point was to highlight dancing, not controversial non stars. Between Nancy Grace, some Kardashian man, and Chas Bono, the focus is on the personality well beyond the hope of being a dancer. This has just become a ratings fiasco. Shame on ABC. Shame and more Shame.

      I really know about 4 of those people on DWTS. The rest don't matter to me and that is a problem with the show....they get a lot of "stars" that nobody really knows. I have watched less and less.

      Nancy, I gotta say...sometimes my Lord asks me to step out of my comfort zone and do something I don't want to do. I have never watched this show but for some reason, I wanted to see you perform since the advertisement caught my attention. Could I do that? I'm your over achiever middle age woman with grown kids and you inspire me to be brave and go for whatever Christ asks me to do...You are brave! For that alone I applaud you and all women in America should recognize you have the courage to make us try for our dreams, regardless if they like you or not.

      I agree. Nancy is no dancer. What really upsets me is that she has her private commercials on CNN, a prime time news station. They repeat every day over and over again "vote for Nancy, you can vote several times". Of course all the other dancers have no chance. What about them? Even when you win it was only because you are permanently promoted by CNN and not because you are a great dancer. If you believe you are great you must also believe that Casey Anthony is innocent.

      I agree with you i can stand nancy grace for her to be on dwts is a joke.the only reason she is still on there is cuz she has 2 networks voting for her.there is no way she better than the ones that got voted off.but in her head she will think she is the greatest.on the show tonight she told her partner that she had a twins that get up @ 5am and a full and he didnt.she is a very hateful person.she can not dance he has to drag her along the dance floor and maks even told the judges that cuz he was mad that the good dancers were getting voted off.there is so much i could say about her i do feel sorry for her twins cuz they cant help but being as hateful as she is
