HLN television talk show host, and former prosecutor Nancy Grace is the latest celebrity to reveal that she has lost weight on Dancing with the Stars. She is among the line-up of celebrity dancers on Season 13 and is paired with pro partner Tristan MacManus. In a recent interview with People magazine she said that she had lost 10 pounds thus far from the long days of rehearsals.
“I’ve inadvertently lost 10 lbs. on the I’m-too-tired-to-eat diet,” she said…If you would have told me five to seven hours of dance practice was fun, I would have never believed you,” she said, “but it is.”
Nancy Grace, the mother of three-year-old twins, Lucy and John David, also talked about how it is her intention to stay on the program as long as possible for their sake, saying, “I wanted there to be many, many nights of me dancing onstage for the twins to one day look back and go, ‘Look at Mommy,’ not ‘Mommy got thrown off,’ She had, in a previous interview, expressed concerns about the competition on the show (“They’re young, skinny, beautiful, singers, soccer players, stars — I’m a lawyer.”)
Expounding upon her reasons for being on the program, she went on to tell People Magazine:
“There are a lot of women out there who are like me – they work all day and take care of their children. And if they are like me, you don’t always have the best self image or are in work mode all the time,” she said. “I would like to send the message to them that they can follow their dream and believe, which is hard sometimes.”
