Rhodes is most well known for playing Penny, Patrick Swayze's dance partner who got an abortion in the classic flick.
In a new interview with Splash Chicago, Marx says Rhodes took a break from acting and dancing when she got pregnant with the couple's first child in 1990 ...
He has four siblings, two brothers and two sisters. They really had a good time with each other and finally on 12th June 1975, they married each other.
They first met each other when she took dancing lessons under his mother guidance as his mother was a dance instructor.
That’s the shocking charge by one of the “Dirty Dancing” icon’s closest friends, who rips the lid off what was believed to be a Hollywood fairy-tale marriage that lasted 34 years, ending when Patrick, 57, died of cancer on Sept 14, 2009.
According to the friend, Patrick’s personal hell was made worse in his final months because wife Lisa Niemi kept the actor, who’d shrunk to a pitiful 90 pounds, a prisoner in his own home – banning his mother and loved ones from visiting.
He was married to Lisa Niemi, a long term girlfriend from the start of 1970s.

And Patrick Swayze, the Hollywood leading man who grew up as a ballet dancer in Texas, was born to a certain sort of toughness - in striking contrast to his romantic lead-role in Dirty Dancing, which made him globally famous.
His hobbies, until his illness, were strictly macho: riding bulls, racing cars, skydiving and taming horses.
His mother was a dancer like him and she was also a choreographer and an instructor. They were bonded in marriage relation till 2009, the year he died because of pancreatic cancer. He made his first appearance in the movie in 1979 in Skatetown.
He was born in Houston, Texas, United States of America to Patsy Yvonne Helen and Jesse Wayne Swayze. They remained together for more than three decade; however, they didn't have any children together.
Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey may have danced into each other's hearts onscreen, but the late actor definitely didn't have the time of his life filming "Dirty Dancing." In his aptly titled autobiography, "The Time of My Life" - the release of which was pushed from October to next Tuesday in the wake of his recent death - Swayze writes that his leading lady was one huge pain in the derriere on-set. Apparently, Grey acted too much like, well, a girl.
