Ryan O'Neal

"Dancing with the Stars"

Was Just Too Grace-Full

Ryan O'Neal said he backed out of "Dancing with the Stars" because of a bad knee, but multiple sources connected with the show tell TMZ ... he REALLY backed out because he can't stand Nancy Grace.

Sources tell TMZ O'Neal feels Grace has been "disrespectful" to his family ... claiming she has gone after Redmond, who has had ongoing drug problems, and even suggested the reason Redmond is messed up is because Ryan is a bad parent.

We're told Ryan really wanted to do the show, but could not co-exist with Grace.

Can't blame him for that one. That chick is a total f*cking idiot...and a f*cking pile of dog **** as a person to top it all off. Horrible combination of personal attributes.

Sometimes, things aren't an "either, or" type scenario, but can certainly be all inclusive. I believe, that "most" people would suggest that they cannot "stand" Nancy Grace. But, also, I believe, that Ryan O'Neal has in fact been a horrible parent. It's been well known, that his children had very little reliable structure within their lives growing up, and all of them have had issues with chemical use from childhood onward. Also, let's not forget, that just within the past two years, or so, Ryan was feeling up and hitting on his own daughter at a party.
So, yes, . . . Nancy Grace is difficult to stand!!!
And, yes, . . . Ryan O'Neal is a horrible parent!!!
GOOD TIMES.

Nancy Grace reminds me of Miss Piggy's OLDER sister.

Don't blame him. In my opinion Nancy Grace is an intolerable muckraking cold-hearted harpy who doesn't care who she hurts if it means she can get ratings for her show and boost her huge ego. I think she deserves all the shunning she gets and more.
