Jennifer Grey resurfaced into mainstream attention when she joined this season’s cast of Dancing With The Stars.
Did anyone else get tears in their eyes when she reminisced about Patrick Swayze? I know I did! And really, who else are you going to root for in this so-so set of dancers this season?
Dancing alongside Derek Hough, as seen here at the Dancing With The Stars Season Premiere held at CBS Studios in LA on Monday, she’s already made the first cut.
But think back and ask yourself, where has she been these past ten plus years?
For all of those who wondered, but never had the patience to Google, Grey and her
then-boyfriend Matthew Broderick were involved in a head-on collision
that left the occupants of the other car, a mother and daughter, dead.
Five days later, she became America’s favorite “Baby” but “The
juxtaposition of that deep sorrow, the survivor’s guilt, and then being
celebrated as the new big thing just didn’t jibe. It didn’t feel good to
be the toast of the town,” she revealed.
Well, now you know.
