Nancy Grace is a jack ass

Is it me or is Nancy Grace an utter and complete whack job? The Maury Povich of cable’s prime time talking heads, CNN’s helmet headed and confused crusader against all perceived evil people and their families, Grace is as rude as she is stupid.

Thanks to a poorly thought out decision to change from cable TV to satellite TV, I admit to finding myself watching that train wreck just long enough to become embarrassed for the woman herself and for the guests whom she abuses. It’s tough to make me uncomfortable in my own home, especially if you’re nowhere near my place. But somehow Nancy Grace did just that.

They do call the people who appear on shows “guests”, don’t they? That would sort of make Grace the hostess, wouldn’t it? Well, that lady needs some serious Amy Vanderbilt books and maybe even a copy of Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People.

You would think that the first time she saw herself ask a question, totally misinterpret the answer and bash someone for something that they didn’t say, she would be careful not to do it again. Or, you would think that if she was daft enough to miss her own idiocy, perhaps her staff might point it out. But they don’t. I’m sure it’s because they love to see her look like a buffoon.

I have no problem with the fact that she soaks every missing child for every single rating and tear that she can. After all, she does keep the pictures and details out there and that’s a good thing. But her attitude gives away her true intent. She has all the sincerity of Dog The Bounty Hunter, all the charm of Judge Judy and all the brains of Jimmy Carter. But the Dog, the Judge and the ex-President all have the ability to comprehend the speech of others. They have to…Dog so that he can arrest them, Judy so that she can attack them and Carter so that he can stick his nose in where it doesn’t belong.

In case you’ve been lucky enough to have avoided the pit bull of a dog with a chicken bone, this is an example of how she treats those who dare to step into one of those tiny squares on her show:

Grace: What can you tell me about the blood on her shirt?
Guest: There’s no way to know until the test results come in but it’s possible that she was hit in the mouth during the struggle and that it’s her own blood.
Grace: Oh, oh, oh…are you saying what I think you’re saying? Do you actually believe that her own blood could possibly drip from her mouth during a struggle?! I’m just an attorney, what do I know…Dr. Soinso, weigh in please.
Dr. Soinso: Your other guest was right, we need to wait for the test results to know anything conclusive.
Grace: Oh my Lord! Am I the only one left with a brain cell here?!

I could almost understand Grace’s cult following…if she weren’t so incredibly consistent with her misunderstandings of the people whom she invites on to her show. Why they keep coming, I haven’t a clue. After the show, I can picture her walking away mumbling to herself, “I don’t know why they make me have guests, everyone but me is a MORON!”

Her show is just that, a show…and she is a showman. But who in the world wants to watch a show about a goofy looking stupid chick who invites people over every night to make them look foolish? I don’t get it.

After my stint on that Judge Pirro Show, I realized how much of those shows are staged. That experience sort of busted my reality TV cherry. Now I see how producers manipulate people and situations for ratings. I guess I always knew that they did that but until Pirro made ME look foolish for helping out a family member, I didn’t realize how pliable the audience was.

Grace may be an ignorant blond nit wit but she does recognize the pliability of most TV viewers. And just in case the viewer feels the slightest pang of empathy for someone like George and Cindy Anthony, who’s only crime is trusting and coddling a lying, manipulative daughter, Grace will do her best to wipe that affinity out of any heart that she can.

The Caylee Anthony story is a sad one, indeed. And I’m sure that if the Anthony’s had anything to do with their granddaughter’s disappearance, we would know it by now. Everything else in the story has been leaked by the prosecution.

The cops leaked the tapes of visits between the Anthony’s and their daughter. What POSSIBLE reason could they have for doing that? And when they did, Grace showed the same tapes over and over again and dissected every single sentence that was said. And then, when the family stopped giving her fodder for her show, she berated them publicly for not “consoling” their daughter in front of the cameras.

Grace reminds me of Bernie Mac’s character in Guess Who where he accuses Aston Kutcher’s character of racism when he doesn’t “trust” a hotel bellboy with his luggage. Then, when Kutcher asks the bellboy for help, Mac says, “Oh sure, treat him like your personal slave!” There was nothing that Kutcher’s character could have done to please Mac’s character and there’s not a damn thing that those poor grandparents can do to avoid Grace’s wrath.

I have a beautiful little granddaughter myself and I simply cannot imagine what those people must be going through. I also have imperfect children whom I love desperately.

Many parents feel the pain of raising a child only to see that child go to prison for decades. That in itself would be a heart-breaker. Many other parents and grandparents lose children. The pain of that is too hideous to even contemplate. The pain and emotional trauma that goes along with experiencing both events must be exponentially more acute.

I’ll agree that the Anthony’s raised their daughter in an enabling manner. She learned to be such a narcissistic monster somewhere. And perhaps they even continue to enable her. But they are the only people being deceived by Casey. The authorities, who are the only people who matter anyway, aren’t fooled by her at all. Let her parents grieve and deal with this dreadful situation on their own timetable. Not much can be hurt by allowing them that small concession, even Nancy Grace could still bitch, she should just keep her bitchiness aimed at the appropriate target.

If I could ask one question of Ms. Grace, it would be this, “What can the Anthony’s do that would make you happy?” I think already know the answer to that question.

I bet you a dollar to a donut that if Nancy Grace had been here 2000 years ago, she would be in charge of stoning social lepers of any and all types. If the Anthony’s refuse to throw a huge stone or two at their own daughter, Grace won’t let up on them…ever. I’m sure that it was someone with just her personality type who thought up games for the masses to watch in the Coliseum when condemned prisoners were sent to their deaths in various painful manners.

I don’t for a moment mean to suggest that the victims of Grace’s wrath don’t deserve some degree of uncomfortable retribution for their acts, most of them are pretty hideous people and perhaps the entire Anthony family are all hideous people, I don’t know. But I do question the earnest manner in which Nancy Grace assumes responsibility for chastising all who stand accused of a crime and even many who do not. Her methods and her misplaced tenacity only stand to suggest that being tried in the “courtroom of Nancy Grace” is more severe than being tried in a real court and the process is as vindictive, if not more so. You could almost claim Double Jeopardy after being tried in the savage and truculent “Court Of Grace”.

  1. I used to think Bill O’Reilly was the king of jackasses, but I have to agree… Nancy Grace is the worst. At least Bill cuts through the bullshit, but if you lie to him, or dodge the question, you get the beat-down. Nancy just opens her mouth and vomits lies.

    I don’t have cable or satellite … is she still on CNN? If so, she fits right in with their lame attempt to report the “news”.

  2. I agree with you. You have summed up the way NG is to a tee. Obviously though, if she is broadcasting a show like this and nothing is being done about it, it’s not crossing any lines. If her guests truly felt berated then why don’t they say something to her or get up and leave the interview? They must know she is going to be harsh. The show is all about Nancy, always has been always will be. That’s the way it is. I refuse to name call and pick on people or even let someone like her bother me. I have too many more important things to do in my life right now. My best advise to anyone who doesn’t like her or her showis that there is this device called a remote control or an on/off switch and no one is forced to watch her if they don’t have to.

  3. Nancy Grace – The highest ratings & number one watched show last week.

  4. Personally I think that NG is too soft on the Anthony’s and gives them and their lies and bullshit too much of a break. Even if you have satellite there is still something else to watch than NG if you hate her that much. I hope that everyone of the Anthony’s rot in their own hell that they have created!

  5. Why don’t you let others speak for themselves.

  6. The word I believe you are looking for when describing NG’s interview style is “assclown.”

    I have a difficult time watching her and Greta. My cure for that is to hit the change channel button.

  7. Feedom of speech reigns supreme but there are limits to your diatribe and our freedoms.
    Just change the channel and write something someone can comment on.
    No matter how much you dislike Nabcy Grace, you are exposing personal hatred where it is unnecessary and uncalled for. We can all agrree to disagree.

    Writers are also informing the reader about who they are and what they value. When you sit down at your computer and write for Word Blog you need to remember that it is your responsibility to present the facts without malice.

    If Nancy Grace was as bad as you think she is , don’t you think we would all know it?

  8. I think that Nancy Grace should be arrested and placed in a prison. Someplace nice and safe where she will not be able to undermine our legal system the way she has been doing with this Anthony case. Ultraconservatives want to put flag burners in prison, what’s the difference? She didn’t burn the flag, but she does vandalize due process each and every night. She is molesting your right to due process, which she was sanctioned by the Appeals courts years before, and setting a precedent for every child who will grow up in a world where mock trials are held on TV for entertainment. She is vandalizing the jury system by attempting to taint all of society with her hyper-accusatory views, phony evidence and wild accusations. In my opinion, in virtue of the fact that phony bogus evidence has already been presented to every possible juror, you have a mistrial by definition even before the trial has begun. And, Casey Anthony should be released immediately because this is not a case that simply cannot be tried fairly under our system of Law. Guilty or not, Casey should go free, in part largely due to the un-professionalism of Nancy Grace. Good going

  9. It is clear to those that have really scrutinized Nancy Grace’s misconduct that Nancy clearly suffers from a psychological disorder. Might be one of the many reasons CNN puts her into therapy so often. Not for her alcoholism or drug usage she says she does, but for her mental instability.

  10. I understand your feelings and thoughts on the matter. But…I think she’s simply an asshole.

  11. I don’t dispute that Annie, but I do see some potential in Nancy Grace to at least tp put some effort into helping others like her struggling with her drug and alcohol probems she says she deals with every day. I also believe that by the time the big mountain of lawsuits in both state and fereal courts file and yet to be filed lawsuits are resolved, CNN will be required a maintain a running banner on any show Nancy does to indicate that her formate is for entertainment purposes only and are not to be consvrewed as fact in any manner whatsoever.

  12. That’s a good point. It annoys me to watch her. I was at a friends the other night and he put it on. I can’t turn another person’s channel so I sat there, simmering underneath. She hasn’t changed a bit. I want to take her hair and pull it out of her big fat head.

  13. You are right, Nancy hasn’t changed a bit. Gives some rationale as to why she can no longer practice Law anymore anywhere within the 50 states of the United States and why she lost her three earlir spots on television..

  14. Are you serious? She CAN’T practice law? Do you know why? I have to get on THAT one!

  15. OMG! I’m reading it all! I HAD NO IDEA! This is gonna be good!

    Thanks for mentioning that, I thought she was a plain old regular asshole, I didn’t know she bordered on being a criminal herself!

  16. Yup, as you’ll find in your research on this Predator, the best I can obtain is that it is contained within her Separation Agreement with Fulton County, that they would not petition for Nancy to be barred as an attorney as long as she contractually agreed that she would never ever work in a position like, or similar to, her previous position within any structures pertaining to a Law setting. Which, I had seen a copy of that document years ago with her signature on it. Since I saw that document several years ago which was available on-line, I have not been able to retrieve it in more recent times, since it appears that in the timeframe around the Duckett suicide where Nancy participated in that phone call she made to that distraught mother of a missing child, and Nancy was chastised by fellow media personalities for her un-professionalism resulting in a death of a non-convicted victim of a crime, I have not been able to locate any of those documents on-line. I suspect the CNN damage-control teams had them all pulled from public view. Nancy has a track record of (mis)conduct as an assistant back in those days that truly are criminal in nature. And, that same conduct still exists throughout her broad casting in which she continues to demonstrate some possible psychological dysfunctions, and is contractually monitored by CNN and constantly reviewed by CNN staff to help to minimize those types of continued errors. It is fascinating to see how the Psychological factors play into her shows, Nancy is contractually not able to do any show for CNN any longer without at least one of her many Psychologists, or Psychiatrists, or other medical doctors present on-site to assist CNN in managing this Predator. I could go on and on endlessly about the research available out there, but just so ya know, never mistake Nancy for a victim, or as being factual. 😦

    • Read my latest post, it won’t be news to you…but you’ll enjoy it nonetheless. Oh, thanks for the inspiration!

  17. LOLOL, you left out drug and alcohol addict!
