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.

Sorry i misspelled earlier...meant to say that he is a bad parent, CASE CLOSED.
I live in Malibu, and we have all heard this story before. I know neighbors that used to hear him screaming at family members.And worse. This inludes his poor ex wife.
, he is a druggie par excellence, and feel sorry for his kids. they didn't ask for the life he gave them. he is a self centered loser, and ugly man

I can't stand Nancy Grace either, but I'm afraid she's probably right about who's to blame. Every kid that man has is completely screwed up. He's a narcissistic nutjob.

Redmond is a good looking kid. If he could seperate himself from the disfunctional family and straighten himself up, he could be something big and important. Redmond, Just make a clean brake and stop tearing yourself up. Good luck!

Thank God for Nancy Grace!! she is fantastic at what she does and kuddos for her, now as far as Ryan O'Niel, he is the biggest ******** as a father and a human being, that Idiot treated his daughter in such away that he should have been arrested for child abuse. I feel for his off spring and being the worst father ever, he should not ever be on TV again. He is a has been, big time!

Nancy Grace bitched for three years about parentlng skills. She needs to stay home and take care of her own babies. She has two shows and now DTWS. Practice what you preach, Nancy.

PLEASE people this show is really scrapping the bottom of the barrel........what if any criteria is used when selecting these celebrities? The show has got to go - enough already - was a good reality show the first two maybe three seasons but now its just the same old same old and its boring, predictable and used as a tool to loose weight - ugh so not appealing!

Good job Mr. O'Neal!!!! I think she's a dishonest dirtbag who sent innocent people to prison ON PURPOSE.

I'm not interested in watching either Ryan or Nancy. Both are ego-driven messes. I'd like to see someone for whom I can cheer.
