'Bling Ring' Member Cuts a Deal as Lifetime Premieres Movie Based on Their Saga

'Bling Ring' Member Cuts a Deal as Lifetime Premieres Movie Based on Their Saga

Originally posted 09/27/2011 09:00AM

Rachel Lee, the alleged second-in-command of the burglary cohort known as "The Bling Ring", struck a deal with prosecutors Friday and is expected to be sentenced to four years in prison, according to reports.

But a little free publicity can never hurt – Lee's court appearance coincides nicely with a Lifetime movie about the gang. The Bling Ring which stars rumored Vanessa Hudgens beau Austin Butler as one of the teens, and Jennifer Grey as mother of one of the criminals, premiered Monday night. None of the real-life burglars, who stole millions of dollars' worth of goods in 2008 and 2009 from the homes of several celebrities, including Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, are cooperating with the production.

Lee, 21, pleaded no contest to a single burglary charge related to a break-in at the home of Audrina Patridge in February 2009. Other charges against her will be dropped in exchange for the plea.

No one puts Baby in a corner ... but having another actress play her iconic role is A-O.K.

Jennifer Grey, who starred as Baby in the 1987 hit film, assured fans that she was fine with the upcoming remake of the film.

She told the Wall Street Journal through her publicist: "I'm so excited about this news and I think there's nobody better than my beloved Kenny Ortega who is as responsible as anyone for the success of the first one. I can't wait to see what he's going to do with it."

Dr. Robert S. Bray Jr. removed "a huge fragment" from Grey's back during the operation. The procedure was a success, and Grey, 50, is recuperating but feeling great.

When Jennifer Grey clinched a first-place win on Dancing with the Stars last week, she left the ballroom with the mirror-ball trophy – and a ruptured disk in her lower back.

Now that she's done with her weekly dance duties, the Dirty Dancing star, 50, is due to undergo surgery either this week or next, reports Access Hollywood.

"It's just going be like a little surgery where they take out the ruptured disc thing, and you know, it won't be a big deal," she says. "Compared to the other surgeries I had on my neck, my doctor says it won't be a big deal. I'll be home that night."

Jennifer Grey Speaks About 'Unbelievable' Dancing Victory

Originally posted 11/24/2010 10:35AM

With less than 10 minutes remaining in Tuesday's live finale of Dancing with the Stars, millions of fans must have breathed a collective sigh upon learning that season 11's controversial finalist Bristol Palin had come in third place.

After weeks of tumult about Palin's staying power thanks to an active voting fan base, in the end it was not enough and actress Jennifer Grey and partner Derek Hough were crowned the champs.

"I didn't even think about winning when I first started. This is so unbelievable," said Grey, 50, who has had four neck surgeries and battled cancer. "I feel so grateful, so blessed, that I had this opportunity to spend three months learning to dance and getting paid for it. I don't know that there's any experience that will ever be anything like this again."

Who Won Dancing with the Stars?

With a season full of surprises and shocking eliminations, it's no mystery that Tuesday's finale of Dancing with the Stars was a nail-biter, right down to the last remaining minutes of the telecast.



As consistently low-scoring Bristol Palin advanced ahead of stronger dancers like Audrina Patridge and Brandy, fans and the media argued about whether Dancing had lost its credibility.

Palin held her own on Monday night's performance show against the season's most dynamic performer, actress Jennifer Grey, and charismatic actor Kyle Massey. Still, Palin received the lowest scores.

Did Palin's fans vote in droves to ensure she takes the Season 11 mirror-ball trophy home to Alaska? Or did America truly vote for the best dancer – which, depending on whom you ask, is either Grey or Massey?
