GLAAD Understandably Unhappy with Grey's Star

Grey's Anatomy loudmouth Isaiah Washington did himself so much more harm than good by declaring backstage at the Golden Globes that he never called gay costar T.R. Knight the F-word. Not long after Knight went on Ellen to call his cast mate out as a liar, GLAAD issued a statement explaining that when Washington "uses this kind of anti-gay slur — whether on set or in front of the press — it does more than create a hostile [work] environment. It also feeds a climate of hatred and intolerance that contributes to putting [the gay] community in harm's way. Tragically, this sometimes can be the last word people hear before they're attacked, beaten and possibly even killed." In other words, Isaiah: open your mind, and not your mouth. read more

T.R. Knight: Isaiah Lied at the Globes

In his first one-on-one interview since the early-October incident on the Grey's Anatomy set, and since he publicly came out, T.R. Knight reveals on Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show that cast mate Isaiah Washington was (badly) lying at Monday night's Golden Globes.Recalling Washington's original verbal clash with Patrick Dempsey, Knight says the former "referred to me as a f----t," and loud enough for everyone to overhear. "I could've just let it slide and not said anything," Knight tells DeGeneres during the must-see sit-down, "but it became important," as word spread and the press latched on. Three months later, Washington tried to whitewash what was said, while backstage at the Globes. "Yeah, he denied that he said it," Knight marvels. "I don’t know what to say, really, about that." Well, our Mike Ausiello does, and he says it in this week's Ask Ausiello. read more

Hey, Michael, were you in the ...

Question: Hey, Michael, were you in the press room when Isaiah Washington hijacked the microphone and said, "I did not call T.R. Knight a f----t!" And, if so, care to give us the scoop?Answer: I certainly was there, and I have the internal scars to prove it. It was by far the ugliest, most uncomfortable press-room moment I have ever experienced. And judging by the shell-shocked faces on the cast — particularly T.R. Knight and Patrick Dempsey, who have been class acts throughout this entire ordeal — it was a new low for them, too. And what's ironic about the whole thing is that in Washington's attempt to clear his name, he came off as an out-of-control homophobe who throws the f-word around like it's candy. (He's also playing fast and loose with the truth. Did he call T.R. a f----t to his face? No. Did he refer to him as one behind his back? Yes. T.R. says read more

Grey's Star: Isaiah Washington Needs to F'ing Zip It

Isaiah Washington, who backstage at the Golden Globes made some sort of bid to set the record straight about what he did or did not call T.R. Knight during the infamous October on-set fracas, may have only dug himself in deeper — at the very least with another Grey's Anatomy cast mate, Katherine Heigl. Speaking to Access Hollywood after his latest spiel, Washington reiterated, "There is no way I could do anything so vile" as calling another person the F-word.Heigl, though, says Washington's revisiting of the incident — complete with uttering the epithet — hurt Knight, who was also in the press room at the time. "I'm going to be really honest right now. [Isaiah] needs to just not speak in public. Period," the actress tells Access Hollywood in an interview airing Tuesday. "That did not need to be said, I’m not OK with it. Drawing attention to it and saying the word again is just unnecessary." read more

January 11, 2007: Six Days, Part 1

The title of tonight's episode was "Six Days." But it's been a long six weeks since we've had the privilege of a new episode. I've missed my Grey Thursdays. Do you agree with me that it was worth the wait? First things first — it's about frickin' time Izzie deposited that check! I loved George saying to her, after the check fell off the fridge yet again: "I just dropped 8.7 million dollars on the floor. You need to deposit that check!" I imagined hearing millions of homes screaming: "Yes!" So it was quite appropriate for Izzie to be so hysterical at the bank toward the end, loudly crying: "I'm supposed to do something good! Can you just deposit it already?" Since this was part one of a two-parter, I think it's pretty obvious that Izzie will use some of the money to pay for patient Heather's expensive spine-straightening surgery next week, especially since Heather's insurance won't cover it. ABC likes to give the fabulous Mae Whitman from Arrested Development work — first D... read more

Ellen Pompeo: No More Heated Frays at Grey's

In speaking to TheEnvelope.com about her Golden Globe nod, Ellen Pompeo says that things have "completely" calmed down on the Grey's Anatomy set since the October fracas between Isaiah Washington and Patrick Dempsey. In fact, she cops to being "surprised more hasn’t happened" backstage at the under-the-microscope hit show. "If it wasn’t such a great group of people, we could have a lot more chaos," she says. "We are pretty blessed."As for whether she will be blessed with a statue come Jan. 15, Pompeo is hedging her bets. "I don't have a chance," she says. "Edie Falco and Kyra Sedgwick [are nominated]. Come on!" And by "Come on," she meant, "Seriously." read more

Can you please, please, ...

Question: Can you please, please, please give me any Grey's scoop?


Answer: Although I don't believe for a second that Shonda Rhimes would actually do this, the chatter about a possible Burke death is getting louder with each passing day. A Grey's source, however, says it's not true and that Isaiah Washington's job is safe — at least for now. Speaking of which, did you all catch the special Grey's Anatomy-centric Oprah two weeks ago? And if so, how uncomfortable was O's little powwow with Washington, Patrick Dempsey and T.R. Knight? I haven't witnessed such a forced reconciliation since the late '90s when Cybill Shepherd and Christine Baranski went on Entertainment Tonight to proclaim that everything was hunky-dory on the Cybill set.
