Mrs. LMC had "Dirty Dancing" on a little while ago which I had never seen as my existence for the period 1981 to 1991 was spent here and here. Apparently, I did not miss much on the large screen during my extended stays in the boonies of America, but I digress (or regress?). In any event, Jennifer Grey's claim to fame was she co-starred with Patrick Swayze in DD and was in "Farris Bueller's Day Off." A short clip this evening of the "where are they now" variety had Jennifer going on and on about what a big moment it was for her and how great it was that DD was made into a musical. This woman is on the ropes. Poor Jennifer, gone and forgotten but at least she did not do the skin mags and movies on the estrogen channels.

UPDATE: A faithful reader corrected me on the spelling of poor Jennifer's name but even that will not save her from obscurity, richly deserved. Mrs. LMC, the Final Authority on all Manner of Popular Culture, thinks Jennifer had cosmetic surgery. Colossus inquired if we have ever done a feature on the babe from Flashdance. We have, and here it is.

Jennifer "Grey," not "Gray."

A google image search on "Jennifer Gray" produces rather, uh, disappointing results.

Ah, all great minds come back to Jennifer :) (Gray?)

As dancing 80s chicks went, let's just say that Jennifer Grey (daughter of creepy French guy and dancer Joel Grey) was no Jennifer Beals.

Have we covered her yet? If not, put her in the queue, LMC.

She was on some very short run sitcom in the 90's where she played herself living with some other "quirky" characters in LA. She had plastic surgery on her nose which so changed her appearance that nobody recognized her. This was actually one of the meta-jokes of the show. Hard to imagine it didn't catch on...

She famously had a nose job. It was all over the papers a couple years back. Personally, I find her more attractive with the big nose.

Oops, didn't read LB Buddy's comment.

What, a Hollywood starlet who went under the knife but didn't have a boob job? Such a creature must be put on the Endangered Species List. About as rare as an ivory-billed woodpecker.
