Nancy Grace & Jane Velez-Mitchell: "The Toxic Twins

Tweedle-Dee & Tweedle-Dum
Tweedle-Dee & Tweedle-Dum
Can you HEAR me..or do I need to scream louder?
Can you HEAR me..or do I need to scream louder?

"Panel, weigh in........"

Attention, all you dedicated Nancy Grace fans: Please don't prepare to jump all over me and throw eggs or write hate mail. I am painfully aware that every student who attends the Nancy Grace Headline News 101 class each weeknight at 8 p.m. learns to leap before they look. All I ask is that you temporarily postpone lethal injection until you've allowed me the privilege to state my case, pro se.

The truth is, I actually like Nancy. There are times I will tolerate her friend, journalist and Host of "Issues with Jane Velez Mitchell"....Jane herself. Both of these women are informative and entertaining. (No argument that they have built a massive following. )They know their stuff and are authentic examples of high-powered women on a mission.

I indulge in 7 to 9 p.m. HLN myself quite often. I'm a broad-minded individual who actually enjoys listening and learning from those who take a stand on issues of importance, whether I agree, disagree or have no opinion at all. Knowledge and healthy debate are not diseases. Quite the contrary. They are beneficial to remaining on the path of awareness and advocacy. "If you stand for nothing....you will fall for anything....." quite a profound statement.

I've no intention to aim insults or to be disrespectful toward these two well-intentioned women. So why do I refer to them as the Toxic Twins? I am prepared and willing to offer my explanations.

Jane is a spunky lady who seems to feel the need to yell at her audience while simultaneously scowling as though she has nothing but utter disdain for those she is speaking to or about. I find myself wondering why Jane repeatedly and continuously takes a defensive stance right out of the gate.

WATCH her for just 10 minutes. Her forehead and eyebrows are in the distress position for nearly the entire hour of her show. If an attitude adjustment is out of the question, I suggest Botox. I literally catch myself frowning right along with her until my left eye starts twitching from exertion.

Jane is also a Classic Interuptor-Interjector-cut-the-guest-off-in-mid-sentence-offender. Although this is universally annoying, I laugh like hell every time she does it. The facial expressions of the guest who thought he/she actually had something profound to say are priceless. (Oops, sorry dude. Maybe you should save your comments for Anderson Cooper.)

It also remains curious to me why Jane, as well as Nancy, bother to have an audience/listeners. They, especially Nancy, allow no room for debate nor at times, the slightest comment or question to their opinions.

Jane is a proud, recovering alcoholic, "Clean & Sober," for 18+ years now. Both women have published books, which have taken off like rockets. One of Jane's books, "I Want," is all about her journey from a stumbling drunk to a healthy and respected journalist/TV personality. What's not to admire? This is Good.....sincerely, this is good. I love a story of self-discovery and victory over the demons that haunt us.

Jane also feels the need to announce her lesbianism. The announcement boggles my mind. I've wracked my brain and I just can't recall Peter Jennings, Walter Cronkite or Barbara Walters finding it a vital snippet of information, to interject into their news report, "And by the way, I'm heterosexual." How do we help but begin to suspect there's a bit of agenda-advocacy going on here? Well, why not? It appears everyone is doing it.

On to Miss Nancy Grace, former Persecutor, I mean, Prosecutor, Atlanta, Georgia. And a Georgia Peach of a Prosecutor was she. All due respect, the woman was unbeatable in the courtroom. She made quite a name for herself, literally. She became known nationally as "Amazing Grace," a title given by her esteemed colleagues throughout the country. This notoriety earned her a spot on the tube with none other than Johnny if it doesn't fit you must acquit Cochran, arguing opposite sides of current court cases to a mesmerized audience.

Nancy has, without a doubt....A T T I T U D E with a capital "A". You either love her or you watch her for the hell of it, as I do.. She's huge on the Death Penalty and has no problem whatsoever making this perfectly clear to the world. If nothing else about Nancy can confuse and/or baffle her audience, her loud and clear demand for her "Christian" view of an eye for an eye? Yeah.....that does it for me. Little Miss sweet southern Christian demands a front row seat at the Colosseum.

Remember Leona Helmsley, "The Queen of Mean?" Well, when Nancy is on fire up against the defense attorneys on her show.....she makes Leona look like Mother Teresa. She perks right up in that throne of hers and if you listen closely you'll hear her growl....Nancy can raise one eyebrow and spew out sarcasm that runs up your spine.

"Unleash the Lawyers!".....If I were one of them, I'd volunteer to remain tied up and gagged until the show was over. "No, that's OK, I'll just sit here and watch while Nancy chews you poor slobs up and spits you out." "In fact, I don't even know what I'm doing here."

And folks, what's a Nancy Grace show without pictures of Little Lucy and John David....playing in the park, going Trick or Treating, eating lunch, taking a bath...... Actually this is why we are glued to the TV set, isn't it? While children are finally tucked into bed for the night and parents have a moment of adult time, we insist on viewing pictures of Nancy's toddlers. I know I do.

Last but not least, it's the grand finale I love best. After one solid hour of Nancy's program filled with anger, finger-pointing, dirty looks and insults...of mock trial and conviction.....what matters most is that she squares herself into the eye of the camera and as the aura of light softens, she smiles ever-so-sweetly and in her most polished Southern Belle drawl, she whispers, "Good Night, Friend."

I love it.

Jane Valez-Mitchell

Nancy not so "Grace"ful... "Bravo," Elizabeth Smart!

Hey...hey!! Easy on Miss Nancy Nasty....there has to be a few Bee-otches....on the tube. How else can we learn the tricks of the trade? Actually, I've been tempted to write Nancy and tell her she can't hold a candle to a certain ole Great Granny I know from WNY. Ha! I could teach her a few things!...But my talents are expensive...LOL

Suz.......I seriously doubt that there is an article written anywhere by anyone....or a single word printed about these lovely ladies that either THEY or a member of their staff haven't read. It's important to their images that they keep up on this stuff.

I suppose they might take my article as a "positive" one......although I took a couple of shots (well-deserved shots).

Basically, Nancy especially.....does not strike me as having a sense of humor......so she may not appreciate me in the least!! LOL!!

The old antennae on the roof may have given us only 4 or 5 stations....but it was FREE!.....Truth is, there are actually only 4 or 5 channels worth watching now as it is! Thanks, C.E.

Really appreciate JudgeB4UrJudged. Glad to hear that Jane hasn't OD'd on Botox and is still able to squint her eyes instead of having that continuous look of surprise so many people have who surly got a bargain -- 3 treatments for half the price of one.

Have seen Nancy and Jane's show but it's been a long while. Thankfully I can't afford Cable and don't hate myself enough to get Satellite again. People keep saying there are blessings even in being poor (usually people who have never been poor) and here at last I've found one. No TV! Or what often goes with it.

Enjoyed your article, Paula. :)

Do you write here? There's always room for more talent, you know.....you should consider it.

Thanks again.....I've had my exercise for the evening!

I suppose it would be easier, and far more cost effective for everyone, including Nancy, if we just had giant sized blenders we could just stuff people we don't like into and liquefy them into semi organic fertilizer at the slightest accusation. On our current road of moral, social and finacial degradation we would have an inexaustible supply of candidates that would benefit society more in that way than if they were breathing. If we begin to run out we could broaden the criteria to retarded people, cripples, illegal aliens, broke people, then terrorists, I mean Muslims, then all brown people, yellow people, ugly people, fat people, rich people, and finally annoying people...oh wait...didn't someone try that a while back, I think we called it tyranny, or was it socialism? Thanks for not interrupting.

Judge......LMAO....you are funny!.....Some hilarious comment. I can see you agree with me, but I've run in to people (especially women) who think these ladies are Goddesses......? They become very defensive when I may make a wise crack about Nancy Grace...just in fun.

Nancy is so extremely single-minded, it is bewildering to me how her show has lasted so long...and her fans adore her! ??

Despite severe criticism from so many of her own in the legal community......it just rolls right off her back.

I often wonder why any Defense Attorney will appear on her show and allow her to rip them up one side and down the other because they speak for the "other" side........and if she has deemed someone GUILTY as charged......by God......THEY'RE GUILTY AND ON THEIR WAY TO DEATH ROW.......PRE-trial!

Thanks for stopping by....


JudgeB4UrJudged 2 years ago

I don't see how anyone can watch/listen to these horrible women. You hit the nail on the head with Jane, the expression is what I find weird, permanent scorn/outrage/hate she looks so weird. I think the thing that gets to me is they are actually spreading hate, fear, mistrust, and cultural isolation in the guise of being outraged by it. Also, I really wish famous gay people like would just be gay and stfu about it. I don't care so much that I don't want to know. Nancy, what gives with the handcuff necklace? No don't tell me! Just wear it at home, or in the sex club.

Suze.....All I can say is that if you find yourself needing some really good entertainment.....flip these ladies on some evening. They're getting more and more opinionated and accusatory....and a bit more heartless, as they have gained more popularity and power.

It may sound as though I'm being critical. I'm not. I like these girls. They speak for many. IMO, it's just the way they do it.

I have issues, Suz...that's no secret. I study people, in depth. Unfortunately, due to my hilarious upbringing and my career history of "Cuckoos-R-Us," OVERLOAD..... To preserve my own sanity,I wind up laughing, rather than ranting and crying!.........LOL

Hey Bobbi.....You are always on the ball....never worry about the tiny things!

I do agree with you on "Nancy." She is a force to be reckoned with and I applaud her hard-nosed attitude, ...especially when she's up against some male Defense Attorney who believes he's God on steroids. I love the way she shuts them up....but that's my feminist side.

She can annoy me terribly when she OVER-dramatizes a story.....and she does do that...nearly every night.

She's a stubborn wench (steadfast? is that better? LOL) Even when a law enforcement person comes on with the latest update on a crime and states FACTS that had previously been sheer speculation.....she will totally ignore what's been said.

I wait every night to hear what she has to say.....and then "the REST" of the story! LOL

Hi Paula,

I do not know how I missed this one two years ago, and what I was on at the time.

Nancy Grace is always for the truth her way as she sees it, and like you sometimes I agree and sometimes I don't.

She is adamant and powerful in her views and I admire strong women.

You have a great week and I hope all is well in your corner of the world.

Unnamed....These lovely females do have this effect on MEN, in particular. If I had to guess, I'd say that in general, men are very uncomfortable with the "weaker/fairer" sex being aggressive, angry, demanding, headstrong and blunt.......makes them see too much like MEN...........LMAO!!

Don't know you well, but I sure hope you have a sense of humor.........if not....Oops.

This is hilarious with wonderful descriptions. You had me giggling with the Jane Velez facial expressions and your twitching eye. (yes, Sunshine625 - Jane is a lesbian) My hubby or mom in-law can't tolerate Nancy, but will watch some Jane now and then. As for Nancy and her kiddos, it's the only time she suddenly softens (just a bit) as well as her suddenly heartfelt goodbye. They are too funny.

Great hub - enjoyed it.

Barb....A perfect description of HUMAN NATURE. My guess would be that every one of us can think back to an event that caused us panic, fear and serious concern. So much so, that we VOWED we would never allow it to happen again. We would take steps to avoid a similar situation, be alert and protect ourselves. and we did just that......for weeks, months or maybe even years....until we lose focus, feel safe again, "forget" our vow...Just think of ONE day...New Year's Eve...9 out of 10 FIRM RESOLUTIONS are out the window by Jan. 15th!!

RunAbstract.....thank you for the thank you! :-0

A few hrs after I wrote that I thought it might come across different than I meant it to be. I didn't write to offend.

While watching 10th anniversary of 911 programs, it was mentioned how we came together on that day. Since that fateful day, we have, somehow, gone back to our 'separate' ways...which makes me so sad. But, that IS life.

Right again, I'm not always comfortable w/choices people make.

I'm really glad we're not all the same! Not many people would want a 2nd ME!!!

fpherj.....yes, in times of great needs, we come together as ONE. It's after an event that we go back to the 'old way'

IMHO ~ PEACE!!

Barbara Turpin 5 years ago from N. California

Hey! Is me ...... again! I was just reading some comments, thought I wanted to make another. It makes me sad to see so many "sickened" by homosexuality. We, as a society, are still so

prejudice, black/white/brown, gay/straight, republican/democrat, catholic/Jewish, double standards. These prejudices has nothing to do with the talent they

do/don't have. We, as Americans, still aren't "united" and usually show it, one way or another ... without even knowing it. This shows SO much "quiet anger". Also the reason people keep so much of themselves "under wraps". Only thing truly visible is color. Gay/straight, political, and religious preference is left unspoken, for fear of becoming ostracised.

Nancy/Jane have their talents, also their flaws.

I DO agree, still, with your assessment, enjoyed reading it, will watch again....with different

eyes-partially with a giggle..because of this HubPage!

Again.....thank you m'lady!!!!

I voted UP, plus 5 others!

Another great read! But I do feel differently about you on the homosexual thing... I think I liked it much more when they were all "in the closet". And if that makes me a pirriah in today's world... oh well! I can live with that. Because I am absolutely repulsed my homosexuality.

(Not to be misunderstood... I am not "homophobic". Homosexuals don't scare me at all!)

I will be back soon to read more! So please keep writing!

P.S. I really like to watch Nancy!

and thank you, Cogerson...to be fair, these women do a lot of "good," especially in terms of victims (human & animal). It is their demeanor and highly DRAMATIC spin that can often be comical. When you watch Nancy in action, you want to cringe and run for some of the people she rips in to! She spares NO sugar and spice. The bios on both these ladies is actually very impressive. Simply said...if you're looking for someone to KICK BUTT....call Nancy or Jane!! Have a good day!

Cat 5 years ago

Funny editorial comment on these two incredible ladies-it only makes me love them more. Jane is the only on-air reporter that takes the time to research and report the atrocities that occur daily to animals. And both ladies stand up and voice (loudly) the injustices to all. Thank God they are where they are...we really need their voices in representing so many that have no representation. Sometimes in a loud and very noisy world one has to speak up loudly too to get their point across. They have my ear, and should either one run for a political office, they have my vote.

HEHEHEHE!!!! A few years ago a woman on myspace who I thought of as rather smart did a blog about Nancy and asked me my opinion of it.

I think I shocked her when I asked, "who is Nancy Grace?"

I freely admit that I only know who Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly are because they seem to get more press, and that is probably due to male sexual bias so far as entertainment disguised as news is concerned.

I honestly just don't watch television except what I catch when I'm visiting with the parents, or when I'm watching Major League Baseball. Even then I'm not paying attention to anything but the ball game or the folks.

Hey, you should put some fave Nancy Grace clips in the hub!

I so should be a TV personality - cept my "recovery stories" are a bit too frightening for television. . .

LOL@ you and your husband's "arguments!" I say that pretty baby has all the pull!!!!

Does Nancy "Grace" claim to be a Christian????? I'd like to see her justify her support of the death penalty if she does claim such a belief system of forgiveness and mercy.

Hahaha, you totally nailed it, especially with Jane. I have to say, I know more about Lucy and John David than I know about myself. I also like Nancy's change of demeaner and her sickingly sweet and fake voice when a fan calls in. It's always something like: "Hi Nancy, your my hero. I love you and what you do. God bless you and your beautiful children!" Nancy: (Head bowed down)I don't deserve that. (whispers)thank you. What's your question dear?" LOL.

The other part of the show I love is when the frumpy prosecuter starts rhyming. Just watch Nancy Grace's face when she does that. She looks like she's hearing nails on a chalkboard. I love it!!

This hub was awesome. I loved it.

Nancy really freaks me out. I really think she has ISSUES! Hahaha! The way she can FLIP OUT and then turn into a marshmallow when she's speaking of her twins. Fake as fake can be. Not a fan of either but for some reason I still watch them !

Can you do a hub about Joy Behar next! I liked her on The View until she got her own show....I watched it a fews times and couldn't handle it anymore.

Fantastic hub! Thanks for the laughs that I so needed today :-)))

WONDERUL HUB! LOVED EVERY SYLLABLE, WORD, AND DESCRIPTIVE PHRASE ABOUT NANCY AND JANE, THAT I, THANKS TO YOUR HUB, HAVE GROWN MORE-TOLERANT OF THESE TWO MEDIA "PERSONS" THAN I USED TO BE. VOTED USEFUL, GOOD, ALL ACROSS THE BOARD. GREAT WRITING!

Tobey100.....Hello & thanks for stopping by. I can only guess what "I got nothing to throw," means, but I'm sure it's a good thing....although you didn't vote on my hub.

I'm happy you agree, because I'm too tired to argue today. BTW,,,,thanks for not throwing. I can't catch worth a damn. Peace!
