'Dancing with the Stars' producer "not sure" Nancy Grace was exposed


By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 09/28/2011 

Dancing with the Stars executive producer Conrad Green says he's "not entirely sure" what happened when thirteenth-season contestant Nancy Grace appeared to have a wardrobe malfunction onstage during Monday night's performance show on ABC.

"I'm not entirely sure what any of us saw. As a precaution we cut away, because you can't tell. You see a shade of something, but you're not sure what it is. I know that Nancy was wearing what we call 'petals,' which are essentially nipple covers. And also, the lining of her dress was brown. So we're not sure what it was, but it was an instinct thing, so we cut away," Green told TV Guide in an interview.

Grace has been actively denying that she showed more of her breast than intended when she performed a jive routine in a low-cut brown and gold dress with professional partner Tristan MacManus during Monday night's Dancing with the Stars performance show.

"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," the 51-year-old legal commentator told reporters following the broadcast, according to Us Weekly.

"We have taken every precaution known to men in this dress right here. I'm talking industrial size precaution."

Following a dip at the end of her performance, the camera cut to unusual shots of the audience on two separate occasions, only to focus back on Grace adjusting the top half of her ensemble.

Green told TV Guide that in addition to the petals Grace was wearing, Dancing with the Stars also takes the precaution of broadcasting on a five-second tape delay and the producers took advantage of it when the alleged "nipple slip" occurred.

"For the East coast, yes, we did. That's why we cut away to people watching, because we weren't sure. But when we got to the West coast, we fixed it, we made sure the shots were fine. I'm not entirely sure what any of us saw. But I do know that she was wearing the petals for protection. So all of our systems worked," Green explained.
