As you know, "DWTS" has seen a lot of controversy, stemming back to the participation of Chaz Bono, the son of Sonny Bono and Cher, who went through a gender change operation.
Christian groups took to the Internet to display their disgust with Bono's participation. How they will feel in regard to Grace's nip slip is unknown.
Like all nip slips, Grace's faux paux was covered beautifully by ABC's production crew, whose cameras quickly cut away to the audience. During the cut away, the famous attorney turned legal correspondent adjusted her dress and hid her face in embarrassment in her partner, Tristan MacManus,' shoulder.
The show went on without incident but the minor wardrobe malfunction will live on via media and Internet sites. It will essentially be a search engine gold mine the days after.
Notable Nip Slips:
This, of course, isn't the first nip slip to occur that the media have run with. Other famous nip slips have been from Emma Watson, Mischa Barton, and Tara Reid. The nip slip exploded when Janet Jackson had an accidentally on purpose slip during her performance with Justin Timberlake at the Super Bowl.
Nip Slips Help Shows Get Notoriety:
Grace's nip slip did "DWTS" a favor - it garnered attention to the show from people like me, who really could care less. So far this season, I've paid attention to the reality show from Bono's criticism for participating and now Grace's nip slip. I'm not saying that I'm going to start watching DWTS but it, at least, will have viewers wondering what will happen next. It's like a modern day teaser on the Internet.
With Janet Jackson's nip slip, the singer didn't actually have to do it to help get ratings. The controversy actually worked in reverse in the sense that Jackson became the most searched person on the Internet the following weeks.
I Slip, You Slip, We All Slip For Nip Slips:Nip slips will forever be the act that helps bring attention to shows. Nancy Grace's may have been inadvertent but the result is what counts. However, as much controversy as Chaz Bono's participation created surrounding "DWTS," the no brainer would have been a nip slip from Bono. Of course, now that he is a he and not a she, the impact is greater having come from Grace. Now the only image I have is Nancy Grace criticizing Casey Anthony with her nipple hanging out. Thanks, Nancy Grace.
