Nancy Grace denies her nipple made a brief appearance on DWTS

At the end of her routine on Dancing with the Stars, Nancy Grace’s areola and/or nipple made a brief appearance, before host Tom Bergeron apparently helped her adjust her gown, preventing her breast from seeking justice. However, she says it never happened.

Nancy Grace nipple slip As Nancy and her partner Tristan MacManus walked over to the judges’ table, the camera briefly showed her, and her right breast had worked itself out of her dress.

The control room quickly cut away to an extended shot of the audience, but we heard Tom Beergeron say, “Here we go, here we go. Just help you out there a little bit. That’s all right. No, on the European version, that would be perfectly fine.”

But backstage, Nancy told reporters, according to EW, “When we were doing our hop scotch portion of our dance, there was a little bit of movement but it did not rise to a wardrobe malfunction. We have got every precaution known to man in this dress right here. I’m talking industrial strength precautions. So there may have been a little bit of, as Tristan said, jiggling.”

Here’s the full routine; the disaster occurs at 4:15:
