Nancy Grace says 'Dancing With The Stars' was 'a great relief for me' - See video
Warning: Spoilers ahead! Tough talking Nancy Grace got a chance to show off her funny side as well as her ballroom skill on the 13th season of "Dancing With The Stars." The legal expert also hit the floor with a new dance pro, Tristan MacManus. However, the dynamic duo, who have been entertaining audiences with quick quips to the judges, was eliminated from the competition on Tuesday, November 8.
Grace, a 51-year-old television personality and legal expert, said she accomplished many goals during her time on the show. "I wanted to learn to dance with a great teacher," Grace told OnTheRedCarpet.com after her elimination. "My other goal was to raise money for the national center for mission children and I did that too and along the way I made so many wonderful friends with the celebrities and the pros and the media, but most of all Tristan. So I'm very blessed."
She and McManus received a score of 24 out of 30 from the judges for their Tango, and 20 out of 30 for their Jive on ABC's hit celebrity ballroom dancing series (read recap). The pair earned the lowest combined score of the night with a 44, placing them again in the bottom spot for the evening, where they were just last week.
"I think she also set examples to people in general to not be afraid to try things and again once you do your best at anything you do, it's worth it," McManus said.
On Monday, Grace weighed in on the verdict in the Conrad Murray case. The doctor was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson.
When asked about showing off her funny side on "Dancing With The Stars" versus the serious legal side most of America sees, McManus joked, "That was scripted. That was all scripted. I used to feed her jokes in the morning."
"There's not a lot of chance for humor when you're talking about missing children and unsolved homicides," Grace added. "So this is a great, great relief for me. I don't think one day went by that Tristan and I did not laugh at something."
