Is Jennifer Grey making the right choice in risking her injured body for a television show?
Jennifer Grey is best known for her portrayal of Frances “Baby” Houseman in “Dirty Dancing.” For her work in the film, Grey was nominated for a Golden Globe. After altering her most recognizable feature, her nose, with plastic surgery, Jennifer Grey seemed to disappear from Hollywood. Although she has continued working in show business, Grey never regained the level of fame she experienced after “Dirty Dancing” again. Perhaps until now.
