When Casey Anthony was acquitted in July, Nancy Grace said, "Somewhere out there, the devil is dancing tonight." Well, starting in September, it's Nancy who'll be doing the dancing. The HLN talk show host is taking her forceful personality to ABC's Dancing with the Stars.
Grace, a 51-year-old Georgia native and former prosecutor, is known for outspoken, often combative style. She's come under fire for her finger-pointing and for making what many think are premature accusations of guilt. Law & Order has based several stories on Grace. Her tenacity and hardnosed enthusiasm should make her a fierce contender for this season's prize— though she might need to lighten up a little.
Nancy Grace will be joined by a cast of famous competitors on DWTS. Chaz Bono, David Arquette, Ricki Lake, Rob Kardashian, and soccer star Hope Solo will also appear on the dancing reality show, which is now in its thirteenth season. Last season's winner was NFL wide receiver Hines Ward, and actress Jennifer Grey came in first the season before that.
