Nancy Grace Spars With Weatherman Over Whether Or Not Radiation Will Kill Us All

(By Jon Bershad, Mediaite) - Nancy Grace is a fiery television host who’s not going to take any gumption from anyone. That includes, it appears, her own meteorologist. Yes, last night, Accuweather’s Bernie Rayno had the gall to dispute Grace’s assertion that Japan’s radiation problem would be heading to our shores. Within seconds, you could see the icy daggers shooting out of Grace’s eyes. “Ah, here we go,” said Rayno. Here we go indeed.

Soon voices were raised, things were said, and feelings were hurt. Rayno proposed that they just agree to disagree. Grace advised that he bring his “weather report” to the Governor of California (who knew that phrase could sound so negative?).

However, they weren’t completely at odds. At one point they both seemed to agree that magic isn’t real. So…there’s that.
