After a short time where she considered changing her name and starting over from scratch in the industry, she simply embraced the nose and even played herself on a TV show where she made fun of herself. With her stellar performance last week on Dancing With The Stars, Jennifer Grey announced that she is the one the beat. Let’s see if anyone is up to the challenge.
