Breaking News: Does Patrick Swayze Only Have Five Weeks To Live?
The internet is abuzz with the news that, according to the oh-so-reputable National Enquirer, Patrick Swayze, star of the best movie possibly ever made, Dirty Dancing, is dying of pancreatic cancer that has spread to other organs. No word yet from Swayze’s rep on whether the story is true, but our fingers are crossed that this is yet another rumor the Enquirer has gotten totally wrong. Until then, we’ll be playing “She’s Like The Wind” on repeat. [National Enquirer]
UPDATE: Patrick Swayze’s rep has confirmed that the actor was diagnosed with cancer about a month ago. This is so, so sad. Dirty Dancing, Ghost, and Priscilla Queen of the Desert marathon at our house tonight. [PageSix.com]
