Dancing With The Stars announced its stars, and back on the dance floor is Jennifer Grey of Dirty Dancing fame. Most of us remember her Baby, her character in Dirty Dancing. At 50, Jennifer Grey seems ready to show the world she still has it, and why wouldnt she? She is the daughter of Joel Grey who is an actor, dancer, and choreographer. So it seems that dancing is truely in her blood. It truly seems hard to believe that she is 50! It seems only yesterday, she was kicking Principal Rooney’s face in another memorable role in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Grey has been acting since 1984 according to IMDB, when she first appearing in a movie called Reckless. Later in 1984, she appeared in Red Dawn and two years later in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Her most memorable role, in our opinion was Dirty Dancing, where she starred along side Patrick Swayze. In the early 90’s, she was the victim of a botched rhinoplasty, which left her fans wondering why she had changed her appearance, and is something she has said was the worst mistake she had ever made. We certainly think it was! She was so pretty, and even though it didn’t change how talented she was, it did transform her into a totally different person to her fans. We accepted her as she was, but sadly she couldn’t accept herself. Still, she looks great for a 50 year old woman and if she can still dance who cares what she did in the 90’s?
So what can we expect from Jennifer on the show? Will we see the Dirty Dancing lift, she is so famous for? We certainly hope so! Maybe being on Dancing With The Stars will remind her former fans exactly why they loved her in the first place.
