Nancy Grace couldn’t be more excited about being one of the cast members of Season 13 of Dancing With the Stars. But the outspoken Headline News star knows she has her work cut out for her.
“I think my biggest fear is falling, not being able to do it,” she told reporters backstage after the big cast reveal on ABC last night. “Look at all the competition. They’re young, skinny, beautiful, singers, soccer players, stars — I’m a lawyer.”
She continued, “I’m a mom of twins. So this is some pretty stiff competition.”
So will Nancy be bringing her tough side to the competition? (Viewers tune in to see her yell and get angry on HLN)
“Well I’m bringing the twins with me, so I’ll be in mommy mode,” she said.
Nancy hopes to show her twins a bit of L.A., and already has plans to take them to the aquarium and Disney World, aside from the dance studio of course.
She quipped that they might even make a stop at the Michael Jackson trial.
“They actually like going to work with me, which is neat,” Nancy said. “But I remember going to work with my mom and dad, and I thought it was really fun.”
Is weight loss one of Nancy’s DWTS goals?
“Before I got pregnant at 47, I was one of those freaks who would keep a workout and diet journal. I felt that if I didn’t run five times a week I was a complete personal failure. I used to run all the time. But when John, David, and Lucy [her family] came they changed everything,” she said. “I don’t care about that anymore. I want to have fun.”
She added, “Ever since my fiancé was killed in ’79 my whole life has been about putting bad guys away, going to law school, making law review, trying cases, representing crime victims, and this is such a departure, to get to dress up in crazy outfits and dance. Are you kidding me?
