Jennifer Grey Shares How She’ll Prepare For The ‘Dirty Dancing’ Reboot

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Jennifer Grey is revealing how exactly she plans to approach and prepare for the newest Dirty Dancing reboot. She originated the role of Frances “Baby” Houseman alongside Patrick Swayze as Johnny Castle. Grey is both starring in and executive producing the reboot and says that she’s “really committed to getting it right and to doing right by the fans.”

She continues, “I just feel an enormous responsibility to the place it holds in people’s hearts and what made it so special… and to do it without Patrick is just unthinkable.

“It has to have something fresh and it has to be about real stuff, which is what the original movie was… but it was really about identity and class and feeling that, you know, the world’s not made for you.”

Although Grey speaks so highly of Swayze, an article came out last year alleging that the two did not get along on set. “He felt like she was a wimp,” Dirty Dancing producer Linda Gottlieb tells The Huffington Post. “She was authentic, naive; you would take eight times and Jennifer would do it differently each time. Patrick was a pro; it would deliver the same thing over and over again. She cried easily, she was emotional and he made fun of her somehow. He was a macho guy. “

The tension between them made the movie what it is

Swayze even shared his frustrations with his co-star in his autobiography, The best time of my life. “She seemed particularly emotional, sometimes bursting into tears if someone criticized her,” he writes in his book. “Other times, she would slip into silly moods, forcing us to do scenes over and over again when she started to laugh,” and adds that, he “didn’t have much patience to do it several times.”

Ultimately, their tension made Dirty Dancing one of the most memorable moves of all time. “The two have contributed so much every day,” said choreography Kenny Ortega. “Sometimes it was a conflict; sometimes it was love. There was something between the two of them that was inexplicable. They were human fireworks. ”

The Rolling Stones Dedicate Emotional First Performance Back To Charlie Watts

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

The Rolling Stones dedicated their first performance back to late drummer Charlie Watts, who recently died in August 2021. The band has just played their first show back since losing Watts and it was full of emotion as expected. It was for the first time in decades that the band took the stage without Watts for their No Filter Tour, and made sure to get the crowd together for a proper tribute.

“Let’s have a drink to Charlie!” Mick says, holding a beer and raising it as he enters the stage. “Charlie, we’re playing for you man, we’re playing for you,” bassist Ronnie Wood adds.

Without Watts in the band now, drummer Steve Jordan is joining the band for the tour. While the tour has actually not officially kicked off yet, this particular show was played in front of a small crowd as a warmup before they take off. Following the death of Watts, messages of love and support poured in from fans and other musicians alike. He was a much-respected artist and drummer, but he was also part of the reason that the band has stayed together for so long.

He was 80 years old when he passed the way and the world was shocked by the sad news. Tributes poured out into the online world with many stories about the late drummer. One story that resurfaced was about the time Watts punched Jagger in the face – it was in the ’80s that Jagger was undertaking the rock and roll lifestyle a bit too much and too hard.

It was during an argument that they had about whether or not the band should stay together. “None of this should matter to you because you’re only my drummer,” Jagger said at the time, and after going at it with Watts a bit longer, he ended up with a fist in the face. Keith Richards asked Watts what he had done, to which Watts simply replied, “I’ve just punched Mick Jagger in the face.”

56-Year-Old Model Paulina Porizkova Shares Her Top Dieting Tips

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Paulina Porizkova is 56 years old and a model, so it’s no secret she definitely has some dieting tips up her sleeve to stay in shape. According to Fox News, she’s participating in intermittent fasting by following the 16:8 diet, which she further explains.

“I do the 16:8 diet, which just means basically that you don’t eat for 16 hours and then you eat for eight,” Porizkova explains. “I generally take it as I eat whatever I want for eight hours because I like food, but I also kind of tend to like more healthy food.”

However, Porizkova is just like the rest of us – if she has a craving, she gives into it. “If I need a fried chicken, then I need a fried chicken,” she said. “It’s just the way it is.”
She does insist that the diet is pretty easy to follow, even though it sounds tough. “It’s actually really easy,” she says. “I did get hungry at first when I first started doing this diet. I’d kind of obsess about food, but then it sort of evens out. Now, I don’t even think about it. In fact, I’m not at all hungry until 16 hours later when I do get hungry.”

She does go on to add that “it’s obviously individual for everybody… But you asked what I did, and so this is what I do.” The model recently showed off her gorgeous figure in a nude photoshoot, and most of the reactions were positive, but she did deal with some negative ones, as one does in the limelight.

“Most of the reactions have been overwhelmingly positive,” she says. “But the negative ones have been so mean. They’re like, ‘You’re so desperate,’ or ‘It’s time to retire, grandma.’ But I looked at those pictures of myself without makeup or without clothes, and I just thought, ‘Hey, I look pretty good for my age.’”

Navy Veteran Receives More Than $75,000 In Donations For Mobility Scooter After Viral TikTok Video

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Navy veteran Kenny Jary received more than $75k in donations for a new mobility scooter to replace his broken one after a TikTok video of him went viral. He appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend to talk about the whole situation and what prompted so many people to donate such a sum of money (and since then, it’s increased to more than $90K).

Kenny’s scooter had broken and he really needed some extra stability getting around his home. “First of all, his house is not safe for him,” says his close friend, Amanda Kline.

It’s apparently in the works to also help Kenny move into a house that is much more accessible, in addition to giving back to other veterans. Despite any of this, Amanda emphasized that Kenny needs to “enjoy life” and “live worry-free.” Amanda also runs his TikTok account, which goes by @patrotickenny – and they actually happened to meet while Kenny was out on his scooter!

Usually his videos showcase happy tidbits of Kenny’s late, but one of them wasn’t so happy when he revealed his mobility scooter was “broken beyond repair.” His scooter was covered with American flags and it meant quite a lot to him as a veteran.

He was extremely upset about his broken scooter, so the Internet pitched in to give back

“I was in tears. Even though I didn’t have this scooter for a long time, but I met some beautiful people on this scooter by traveling around the coffee shop and veterans park,” Kenny said, explaining that he didn’t even speak to his friends because he was so upset about his scooter. “I’m gonna try and get a fancy one, and decorate it up just like this one,” he vowed in his video.

Well, Amanda went and set up a GoFundMe for her friend to raise money for a new scooter! She placed a goal of raising $5,000 for a new scooter, but the amount raised far surpassed that. “In 24 hours, people on TikTok, strangers who have never met you, but love you, donated $5,000 for a scooter for you,” she said behind the camera of a new TikTok video, and Kenny was in tears within seconds.

With the money raised for a new scooter, they were actually able to get two new scooters for Kenny! “Two fancy scooters (one that is portable, one that is heavy duty), paying off his debt, cover some upcoming medical bills, helping him get better accessible furniture, helping with a move to a new home and costs associated with that, grocery store and coffee shop gift cards, and some really awesome, fun stuff too!” She explains to followers. She promises to continue being transparent and sharing updates with their following.
