Cue everyone thinking “Wait, that shit is still on?” before checking what year it is to make sure they haven’t fallen through a wormhole to 2005. But yes, Grey’s Anatomy is still a thing that exists, and Page Six says that Shonda Rhimes is getting very close to giving McDreamy the Dr. Izzy Stevens treatment, aka firing his ass for acting like a difficult diva bitch. A “source” says Patrick Dempsey isn’t getting along with Shonda, which can only mean one thing. Better start lining up the ZzzQuil commercials, buddy:
“Patrick has been acting like a diva and has clashed with Shonda. She suspended him for a while, and the word on set is that he isn’t coming back full time. Given all the past problems with Katherine Heigl and Isaiah Washington, there is little tolerance on the show for troublesome talent.”
Patrick signed a two-year contract back in 2014, so who knows what will happen with that.
I haven’t watched Grey’s Anatomy in years, but the internet tells me that Patrick’s character has recently taken a job in Washington D.C., which sounds a lot like the time the writers of Itchy & Scratchy conveniently decided it was time for Poochie to “return” to his home planet. And because Shonda Rhimes truly doesn’t play, she hinted to EW back in January that Washington might be McDreamy’s home planet by saying: “It’s highly possible that we might not see Derek for a while.”
Patrick Dempsey’s wife of 15 years filed for divorce back in January and they didn’t have a prenup, so right now isn’t a great time to be getting fired from a good-paying job for acting like a twat. You need the money, Patrick! Those Can’t Buy Me Love residual checks aren’t going to cover everything.
