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.

After I saw Ryan on Piers Morgan, I felt so sorry for his children--he has to be the worst parent I ever witnessed. He's a mess. And he's arrogant and cold. He can't stand Nancy Grace? Look around, Ryan--not too many people can stand you.

Well, I cannot stand Nancy Grace...but if she suggested that Ryan O' Neal was a bad parent she was only stating the very obvious.

What is the problem with Nancy Grace? I like her she points out the douc he bags and says it like it is. That's whats wrong with this country god forbid you offend someone. Ryan is a loser can't believe they even offered him a spot on the show he rates right up there with Chaz Bono!!!!!!!

Aside from the fact that the disGrace person is some kind of horrible joke on the American Constitution:


Can anyone in all honesty even imagine her allowing a judge to say anything? She knows it all, has done it all, and no doubt will be telling the dancers and judges exactly what their professional judgments should be (or at least according to her own self-absorbed little world).


Simply can't imagine anyone putting up with her for very long.
