dirty dancing hotel fire

Nooo!!! A fire just put baby's hotel in a corner!!!

You know that Catskills resort Frances Houseman's family stayed at in Dirty Dancing??

Well that was inspired by New York City's Brown's Hotel. And that hotel, now a condominium complex, just went up in flames!! Sad!!

300 firefighters struggled to fight the fire, but seven out of nine buildings were ultimately burned to the ground. Boo!!!

Luckily no one was killed and at least some of it's left standing… but still! This is such a bummer because we really wanted to stay there sometime!!

What a beautiful way to remember him. Whenever we think on Patrick Swayze, we always remember him as the sexy Johnny Castle standing tall and dancing sultry to the music with Jennifer Grey. Such a legacy.

Yesterday, his wife Lisa Niemi was on hand to unveil the wax figure of her husband at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, depicting him in a pivotal scene in Dirty Dancing.

Very sweet. Now, hold long before someone tries to do a lift with it. LOL.

It isn't fairing so well on the West End, but maybe there's a place for it on The Great White Way.

It's been decided that GHOST: The Musical will be coming to Broadway this spring. Curtains will rise on the musical in April of next year, at one of the Nederlander Theaters, though one has not been chosen yet. The production currently stars Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy as the romantic leads who hold onto their love even in death, however, it is uncertain whether they will follow the show to New York.

It sounds kind of hokey to us, but some people might like.

Think U might? To refresh your memory, CLICK HERE to see the trailer for the West End version.

Dirty Dancing Remake

Kenny Ortega is fully aware of the hate spewed his way, but he's ready for the challenge that lies ahead as he directs the remake of Dirty Dancing.

The beloved 80s film is a classic. Everyone knows 'nobody puts baby in a corner.'

But some people thinking remaking such a classic is doing just that.

However, the director assures us he doesn't want to cause any disrespect, stating:
