We knew she wasn't that bad!

Nancy Grace announced that she will be donating the proceeds of her murder mystery novel, Death on the D-List, to Wesley Glen Methodist Ministries, a Georgia group that helps adults with mental disabilities.

She said:

"We all know I've been pretty mean in the courtroom and out, so this may be my only ticket to heaven," she said. "So please, I want you to accept this check. It's for $25,000, it's part of my proceeds, and God willing, there's more coming to Wesley Glen.

They provide a truly loving home to the mentally handicapped. I've been there myself, before I endorsed it. I've looked at the homes, I personally know the director, and I've spent time there helping them raise money and looking at Wesley Glen so I knew about it."

Amazing.
