Glenna on Grace: That's Just Nuts!
Great news! Tonight at 7 on CNN Headline News we finally get the answer to the age-old question: Who's crazier, Nancy Grace or Lisa Diaz? Guess we gotta go with Diaz. After all, she did drown her 6- and 3-year-old daughters in September 2003 in order to save their souls; that's what the voices in her head told her to do, after all. She was found not guilty by reason of insanity. So, yeah, she's the winner. Grace is just, ya know, completely and utterly out of control--to the point where, in September of this year, more than a few people accused her of driving a guest to commit suicide.
We sure as hell hope that doesn't happen to our own Glenna Whitley, who will join Grace tonight to discuss Diaz, about whom Glenna wrote last year. The reason? Diaz is about to be a free woman--and "NANCY INVESTIGATES HOW THIS WAS ABLE TO HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!" Well, that's what it says on her Web site--though I did add the capital letters to better capture the spirit of Grace's show, which has thus far been parodied on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Boston Legal and Saturday Night Live. Check back with us first thing Monday morning, when Glenna recounts her experience of going face-to-Grace. Like Gnarls Barkley says, shit's gonna be crazy. --Robert Wilonsky
