A wow moment

September 29, 2010 - Pam Rodgers
In the latest episode of Dancing with the Stars, Jennifer Grey revealed that in a check-up to see if she was able to to do the show, they found cancer in her spine and neck. This blew me away. She is 100 percent curable, but you have to wonder if she hadn’t been doing Dancing with the Stars, how much farther down the road would she have found the cancer. It boggles the mind what could have happened, especially given the tragic battle with pancreatic cancer her Dirty Dancing co-star and friend Patrick Swayze went through. It also got me curious about how old Jennifer is. I remember watching Dirty Dancing when I was a kid (not the inappropriate parts for kids because my parents would fast forward them). But the movie did come out the year I was born (1987) so I didn’t get in on it when was first a success. This was also the age before internet sites like where you can go and get information you want about a movie, actor, television show, music in TV and movies, etc. My curiosity got the best of me and I looked her up on the international movie database. I got another shock. I always assumed she was in her late teens, early 20s in Dirty Dancing. Imagine my surprise when I see her birth year is 1960, making her 27 when she was in Dirty Dancing. Being pre-nose job, I can say for sure she has a “Baby” face (haha humorous word play). Anyway, I was shocked to realize that she is 50 years old and dancing amazingly on the show. She is moving as good or better than any of the younger stars who have been on the show and been leaders. She is amazing. I am so glad that she is on the show. Keep an open mind about her. She may have been a dirty dancer, but she is doing moves that have crumpled even the most experienced/athletic on the show.
