HLN’s Nancy Grace screams at TLC’s Jon Gosselin

Former Fulton County prosecutor and current HLN professional scold Nancy Grace took on TLC’s  ”Jon and Kate Plus Eight” reality show father Jon Gosselin on Monday night’s episode of the syndicated free-for-all “The Insider.”

Which is a little like the Titanic accusing The Hindenburg of being the bigger catastrophe.

Still, the televised smackdown was incredibly fun to watch as Gosselin squirmed helplessly and Grace’s Macon accent became more pronounced as she unhinged her jaw and ate Gosselin’s head.

We mean that figuratively. Sort of.

But don’t take our word for it: Watch the exchange here.

I think Ms. Grace needs some serious sex. I can’t stand her “I’m the baddest bitch” on the block attitude. When Ms. Grace can act like a mature woman, I will begin to take her seriously.

Nancy Grace. Yum. Glad to see her tear into that sullen, spoiled jerk. Now we can see why Kate was such a jerk.

I don’t know who has the shrillest voice, Nancy Grace or Judge Judy; however, both of them sound like fingernails on a blackboard.

The terror prisoners should have to listen to them. It would be more effective than water boarding.

The Gosselins – all of them – need to go away. I agree that Nancy Grace perches a bit high on her soap box, but I can’t say that he didn’t deserve the tongue lashing. Both of those parents need to remember that there are those precious children getting caught in the middle of all of this, and that should be their focus. They wanted children so badly that modern medicine enabled them to be blessed 8 times over. Now, it seems that it’s all about the 2 of them – sad….

Nancy Grace can yell all she wants, but you only have to watch a couple of the early episodes of “Jon & Kate plus 8″ to see why he (Jon) wanted out. No self-respecting PERSON is gonna take that s#*t for long. Anyway, besides yelling, what does Nancy Grace bring to the table? I tired of her long ago….

As long as society and her employer keep rewarding Nancy’s conduct, she will continue to be the brash, bully she is. Shock journalism has replaced news gathering/reporting and now the reporter has to be part of the story and finds himself/herself in the position where they have to manufacturer news for ratings. If you can’t find sensational news, bring in Nancy and she will create some for you.

You love Nancy Grace, man you need some serious help. Her voice along drives me insane, and her contact lens artificial looking eyes that barely blink as she and she along ,loudly, has the answers to our moral conditions. There is something Doctor Phil about her self righteousness as she rakes in the fools that watch her and their money. Almost a tent revival selling indulgences.

Whether Nancy Grace is a bully or not, who cares! The fact that she exposed Jon Gosselin for the absolute waste of skin is priceless! (Kate’s not much better)

I used to be the biggest Nancy Grace fan because of her candor. But the reason Jon got off the topic of “kids” was because Nancy changed the subject from the kids to Jon and Kate. Heelloooo?!

Enter your comments here I am so glad she laid into him. I am so tired of this guy. What I hate almost as much are people that criticize the fact that they are using their experience with their large family to help fund their large family is a good idea, much better that depending on the state to help pay their bill. Realistically even if they work day care alone would wipe out most of it. So unless people who are against the show are going to band together to pay their bills, I think there is no problem with it.

I have always thought Nancy was a screaming shrew so its no surprise she would be defending Kate Gosselin, another screaming shrew. I believe that they all need to go back to their respective corners & heaven help these poor children!

Enter your comments here I think the same thing I see everyone taking Kates side, no one knows the true story everyone does assume Jon is wrong. Kate is now taking the quiet road shes not yelling & being demanding as is her usual mo shes “acting” like a reasonable adult with the exception of wanting her kids to be on tv.

Why is Nancy Grace on TV??? Who in their right mind pays any attention to her? As for Jon and Kate, All they are is money in a producers wallet. Who cares about them really. Feel bad for the kids though. What a mess.

Not to sound terrible, but it seems her show is only about white people. It’s like, let’s find the abducted white baby, or let’s scream at the white man (I know he’s from the Pacific, but still, he’s not black). I mean, she’ll spend four months talking about a white child who has been murdered, but spend 10 minutes on a black child who had the same exact thing happen. Where’s the balance? She could really be doing some good in this world by focusing on cases where some media attention could help to solve the case. Instead, she’s a muckraker and beats dead horses to death.

Why would anybody lash out at Jon, he put up with verbal, mental and physical abuse from that woman (Kate) for years. Just go back and look at previous episodes when she absolutely degrades him and strikes him several times. She did nothing but emasculated him and he fought back. Good for him. Oh and yes I am a woman defending him. Kate should grow up and stop tramping around like she is sombody that means anything to anybody. Her children are more mature than she is.

I wasn’t a Nancy fan early on and frankly, couldn;t stand her. But I have been watching her show in recent months and have a newfouund respect for her.

Jon got what he deserved and too bad Kate wasn’t there with him to get chewed out as well. I am SO sick of these two egotistical, self centered and self absorbed morons. Hopefully in time they will fade away.

Nancy, you go girl!

Its a shame that Nancy Grace is in a position to seriously bring some attention to alot of cases and issues especially regarding child victims but her screaming, rude bitch behavior is just over the top. Just another case of power gone to someones head.. I try to watch her but after about 10 minutes of her rude bitch behavior I can’t take it… Does she think she needs to act like a bitch? I often wonder why the guests would want to be on her showing knowing they’ll probably be treated like dirt….I love Jane Velez Mitchell.. She can control the conversation and get her point across but she also respects her guests and their opinions..

Enter your comments here It is very sad for the entire family but I do think that Kate is not the shrew. In early episodes Jon would come to work “tired” from a hard days work and just want to lay back..he had no idea of what was going on when he was “working”. Kate kept everything going and if she got testy that’s ok. How may of us had issues when we had our children and expected husbands to help..it’s not an easy row to how with one child and I cannot imagine what is would be like with 8. Give Kate a break and maybe if Jon would have stepped up instead of whined there would have been problems solved. Instead he chose to go elsewhere…and not think of his family of 8.

Sorry Becky, but Nancy doesn’t walk the walk. The Duke lacrosse case should her true colors. That veil woman laid into those young men and called them all rapists before any evidence came out. And when it came to light they were innocent and everything that she said was untrue; the exact day they are cleared and charges dropped, Nancy takes a leave from the show. She couldn’t even acknowledge the innocence of those young men and the fact that she was wrong about everything in the case. Yeah, that’s really walking the walk. Besides, this was nothing anyway. The Gosselin’s and herself are all pieces of excrement.

And Rita, I guess you are just as dumb as we are then because you commented on this blog as well. Maybe it’s you who needs to get a life you troll.

Like all of us – Nancy gets it right sometimes and she also gets it wrong sometimes and she annoys me more & more but this exchange w Jon Gosselin was right on the money (pun intended). It doesn’t matter if Kate physically castrated Jon on their show, that is no excuse for his behavior or Kate’s. His concern for his kids is convenient and financial (as his Kate’s) but he certainly isn’t concerned when 22 yr old women are on tv and magazines describing their relationships with the yet UN-divorced DAD of 8!!! Nancy simply stated some truths and he couldn’t respond without a surrogate man he hired (his attorney) to speak for him. What a loser!

Well said Rita.

Only shallow gossip loving morons who revel in their decidedly empty existences as media manipulated sheep like obsessives would give a flying toss about this mindless tabloid drivel. Its all about MONEY and self absorbed EGOS.

That vile Grace woman is just a shrill hectoring redneck slapper with a law degree, as she never ever ceases to point out, and a mouth the size of the English Channel Tunnel. Who the hell made her Kamp Kommandantd?

Why couldn’t the stage collapse at that precise moment? All the people giving these idiots the airtime need to be shot. When did Nancy Grace change format anyway? She used to only cover missing or murdered white girls.

As for the Gosselins…..they brought this on themselves. Those kids are going to grow up screwed up because you nosy SOBs wanted to peek into the life of some mouth-breathing knuckle-dragger who couldn’t knock up his trailer-trash bithc of a wife so they had to turn to “modern medicine”. Infertility is God’s way of saying “you shouldn’t procreate”……now we see why.

Nancy needs to go after KATE, but won’t because poor Katie Irene is a victim. Boohoo poor you. I don’t believe for a second that greedy woman only has $1000 to her name.

She needs to redirect that anger to that “Control Freak” Kate. She is the reason they split up. I would have cheated on her too. She is hatefull, condescending, and all around worthless. All Kate does is exploit those children for her well being and bank account. So what!!!, she had sextuplets, and a set of twins. I have watched two episodes of that show, and I was ready to divorce her myself.

As far as Nancy Grace, she supports Kate in the whole thing because she is probably the same at home with her pathetic wretch of a husband. Anyone that would have to wake up to that sour faced battle axe would probably have to be suicidal by now.

As far as Nancy Grace’s show, I thought the concept of doing something positive for the community by seeking out murders and missing people is a great thing. The problem is she tries to go ahead and convict all of the suspects whether they did it or not and the brainless people who watch her are tainted from the jury pool.

Nancy Grace, what business is it of yours what Jon and Kate do? SHUT UP!!!

Headline News should be ashamed that Nancy Grace even has a show on their “news” network. The higher ups over there are all so convinced that they are selling “hard news” to the masses and contributing to unbiased information to better society, but every time I turn on HLN it’s either shrill women screaming at a panel of people, straight out of Jerry Springer, or an 40 year old ex beauty queen “journalist” talking about a cat that can play the piano or something else like that. HLN is about the same as Hard Copy….

The women who are upset by Jon G. are clueless and have obviously been raised to believe that the purpose of a husband to be an emasculated indentured servant to his wife. If JON had spoken to Kate the way he spoke to her, there would be people trying to put him in JAIL. What can people criticize him about? That he has a younger girlfriend? That he has earrings? I don’t see how either one makes him a bad parent….

I dont care for Nancy Grace, but she made some GOOD points and asked some GOOD questions. This all started way back when Jon DID NOT WANT more children and Kate did. They tried for another and got six. That is where this all started. Yes she treated him awful, but that does not excuse his actions. The ONLY thing that 22 year old girlfriend of his wants is his MONEY. Who in their right mind would go out with a man with 8 children????????????? MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY

He is a total LOSER that walked away from his marriage and 8 kids to “play” and NOW he wants the show off the air since he will no longer be a part of it!! UNREAL…..again selfish self centered cry baby. Go back to your 21 year old girlfriends!
