Nancy Grace

I Never Trash-Talked

Ryan O'Neal

Nancy Grace is perplexed that Ryan O'Neal dropped out of "Dancing with the Stars" because of her, telling TMZ, she never said anything bad about him.

Sources directly connected to Ryan tell us ... the actor was all set to do DWTS but dropped out because Nancy has said bad things about his son Redmond, who has had chronic drug problems, and also suggested he was a bad parent.

But Grace tells TMZ, "We have never covered Mr. O'Neal nor his family on our show," adding, "I hate that he dropped out of DWTS; I would have loved to compete with him and wish him the very best."

Grace says she considers O'Neal to be one of the great actors of our time and she finds his relationship with Farrah Fawcett "an inspiration to me."

Nevertheless, O'Neal has bitter feelings toward Grace ... and he freely discusses that in private.

Nancy Grace has never said a GOOD thing about anyone, so I don't believe what she's saying here.

Screw her. She is a disgrace to the broadcasting and legal communities. Harvey Levin is second to Nancy in both those respects.

Wow she's really stretching it by saying he's one of the great actors of all time! She needs to shut her yap, she's as bad as he is. Both have big mouths and ruin lives!

He is a douche bag and a horribe "father"!

All of his kids are addicts - he shot at his older son Griffin - he drug Tatum around and did drugs and alcohol with her as a 13 yr old - he hit on Tatum at Farrahs funeral - Farrah was married to Ryan's friend Lee ajor when he started having an affair with her...that's just the beginning!

No idea whether or not she actually made the comments, but how would she even remember? She spews venom on constantly. She is constantly making bold accusations and claims she has no way to substantiate, how could she ever keep track?

He is a bad parent...he abandonded Tatum and her brother to live with another woman. Father of the year? Hardly, he's too fat and old to dance anyway...

Petty. Me thinks that Mr. O'Neal wasn't feeling like he was special or significant enough between the rest of the lame contestants. He really sounds like a wimp using Nancy as an excuse to back out. Pahlease. Real men don't whine.....he never got that memo obviously.

I wouldn't say Nancy Grace is gorgeous woman, but TMZ shouts out their dislike for her by posting the most unflattering pictures she's ever had taken.
