Well there goes our whole day!
If there was a table near, we'd go all Teresa Giudice on it!!
(Ha! JK… we don't condone rage.)
ANYWAY! The Dirty Dancing remake was supposed to grace theaters July 2013, but thanks to some casting malfunctions, the whole shebang has been pushed to 2014.
Well… just more time to perfect another Hollywood remake!
Luckily, Kenny Ortega is still signed on as the choreographer and Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk is still penning the script. PHEW!!

Now this is just getting odd.
Last week, we reported how the police were called to Paula Abdul's home in El Lay after the alarm was tripped while no one was home. Officials responded, thinking that a robbery was taking place, but when they arrived, there were no signs of forced entry and nothing seemed stolen.
Now we've learned that the same thing has happened to Kenny Ortega, director and person friend of Michael Jackson. The alarm went off at his home last week when a "breach" was

Hey, if Kevin Bacon can say positive things about the Footloose remake…MAYBE we should give this a chance as well! Keyword here is "maybe."
Last we heard about Kenny Ortega/Lionsgate's Dirty Dancing remake, they had just hired Monte Carlo writer Maria Maggenti to write the screenplay.

What do U think? Will Kevin Bacon also like the Dirty Dancing remake??? LOLz!
