Viewers might not notice anything different about Nancy Grace’s show on HLN, but behind-the-scenes, things got a bit tricky with the network host and a failed negotiation attempt with Fox Business Network.

Grace tried jumping to the competing network, but her salary demands exceeded what Fox Business executives were willing to approve, according to the Web site TVNewser.

“After her price and demands continued to escalate, Fox Business decided to walk away,” a network executive said of Grace’s dealings.

Fox News viewers might have recently seen Grace as she made appearances — “auditions,” as one source claims — on shows including “Fox & Friends” and “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Grace’s latest, multi-year deal was reportedly signed before the New Year.
