Kristin at E! is reporting that she’s heard rumblings that the higher-ups at ABC are trying to find ways to can Isaiah Washington from their hit show Grey’s Anatomy after he called his co-star a “faggot” twice. He later apologized and blah blah blah.
Kristin says, “(I) just received word from a highly placed source within the Touchstone/ABC family that ABC and Disney executives are currently considering the option of firing Isaiah Washington from Grey’s Anatomy, effective immediately, without having him appear in any kind of farewell episode.
“According to this reliable source, if the network does follow through with this option, the producers are likely to run a full-screen announcement at the beginning of the first Burke-less episode that announces Isaiah Washington is no longer part of the show. I’m also told by various sources that the loss of Preston Burke is not an easy task for Grey’s writing staff to deal with, given that he has a major storyline (including a life-changing event) coming in the next few episodes that air during February sweeps. Those episodes have already been shot.”
Ugh! Will they just fire him already or at least make his character a gay. Hopefully then hos will shut up.
