Last night it appeared that Nancy Grace suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at Dancing With The Stars show, when her dress slipped down mid way through her energetic quickstep with Tristan, revealing a little too much of her chest area.
But being the good prosecutor that she is, today Nancy Grace has played down the incident, providing evidence that her modesty was kept safe by some trusty “breast petals”.
The legal broadcaster insists that she didn’t fully expose herself and it was the sticky nipple cover-ups that she was wearing, which protected her chest area.
Nancy Grace, 51, tweeted a picture of herself holding the box of trusty stick-ons on her Twitter page.
“Evidence re my alleged <<wardrobe malfunction>> which I vehemently deny: Breast Petals & industrial strength bra,” she wrote in an accompanying caption.
Nancy Grace also told RadarOnline that the wardrobe department of Dancing With The Stars show were always fully prepared for accidents waiting to happen.
“I am in full nip denial,” Nancy told told the website.
“Breast petals and an industrial strength bra…plus a sewn-in corset. The fabulous DWTS wardrobe crew is extremely proactive and would never let an accident happen!”
Nancy Grace also made light of the situation and joked about what she would be wearing in the next round of the contest.
“I’m a considering a turtle neck for my next dance!” she told the website.
Nancy’s dance partner Tristan MacManus says that he was completely unaware of the malfunction.
“I didn’t even notice, and I was closer to it than anyone,” Tristan MacManus told the RadarOnline.
“Apparently the top of her dress slipped down, but the producers were really quick to amend it.”
Nancy Grace was being dipped by partner Tristan, when a mishap occurred, leading to ABC to cut away to an audience shot.
“On the European version that would be perfectly fine,” joked host Tom Bergeron, while judge Bruno Tonioli told Nancy that her performance was “a bit top heavy at times.”
Unfortunately, Nancy’s clingy brown dress then slipped down again, as she and Tristan waited for the judges verdict.
Nancy Grace was quick to deny there had been a costume slip.
“Tonight, when we were doing our hopscotch portion of our dance, there was a little bit of movement but it did not rise to a wardrobe malfunction,” she told US Weekly after the show.
“We have taken every precaution known to men in this dress right here,” Nancy Grace added.
“I’m talking industrial size precaution. There may have been, as Tristan said, a little bit of jiggling but there was absolutely not a wardrobe malfunction.”
However, Nancy Grace did get an impressive score of eight for her dance from Len Goodman who said her performance was a “breath of fresh air”.
