Nancy Grace on 'Dancing With the Stars' Offer: 'I Thought I Was Getting Punk'd'

Nancy GraceNancy Grace was just as shocked as we were that she was offered a spot competing for the mirrorball trophy on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

The legal analyst and CNN anchor told 'Good Morning America' she was en route to a hearing for the Casey Anthony trial when she got the called.

"I was en route to the courtroom in the car," Grace said, "and at first, I thought I was getting punk'd. That someone had somehow gotten the Time Warner CNN cell number and was kidding me about doing 'Dancing With the Stars.'"

Needless to say, she wasn't getting pranked and Grace signed on for Season 13.

Already hard at work prepping for the Mon., Sept. 19 premiere, Grace said she's had to bandage up her feet.

"I'm used to doing battle in court and my feet have never really been an issue," she said. Referring to her professional dance partner Tristan McManus, Grace said, "This one keeps on going like a robot, so I'm trying to keep up."

Of course it wouldn't be a season of 'Dancing With the Stars' without fan fervor. Chaz Bono is the recipient of this season's viewer unrest. Grace said she's not getting involved.

"Unless it's got crime tape around it, I don't care," she said. "I met Chaz, an absolutely lovely person. I'm just waiting to see how he dances. I just don't think it's our business to judge other people for their personal decisions. Unless Chaz commits a felony, I don't have a problem."

Gawd, how little of a life can you have, nothing else to do but sit at the computer and slag a woman you dont even know?
Get a life scumbags. Change the channel, dont watch the show and keep your comments to yourself. Sheesh. What'd Nancy ever do to you? Put away some bad guys you were associated with?
I'm not a Nancy lover, just so sick of reading negative crap from bottom feeding idiots.

I think "DWTS" is great, because it goes to show that strenous dancing helps you lose weight and tone up. Every single star who has appeared on the show has lost weight. Then they try to say that it was Jenny Craig, etc.. Eating the right foods is great, but you need to exercise hard for at least an hour or more.
