“When Oksana, overcome by emotion, cried tears of joy for a good long time, Nancy’s body language was unmistakably disgusted. As if to say ‘Hey we can shut off the waterworks and just get on with it,’” Peggy observed.

Years later, Nancy is reportedly back to her old judgmental habits on Dancing with the Stars. “She is acting like she already knows what she’s doing,” a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “She is trying to choreograph her own routines and is just being incredibly bossy to the other contestants and to the production crew.”
