Ellen Pompeo Hit At Deadline For Insinuating Her Salary Increase Was A Factor In Two Cast Members Getting Chopped
Deadline is taking some heat for a recent article reporting that Grey’s Anatomy is losing two regular cast members after the current 14th season. Deadline reported that both Jessica Capshaw, who’s been on that bitch for 10 seasons playing Dr. Arizona Robbins, and Sarah Drew, who’s played Dr. April Kepner for 9 seasons, didn’t get their contracts renewed. The story itself was not controversial but Deadline’s reporting has been interpreted by some as sexist for insinuating that Grey’s star Ellen Pompeo’s fat checks were a factor.
In case you didn’t know, Ellen Pompeo is that bitch. She recently signed an insane deal to become the highest paid woman in dramatic television. She’s on a little show called Grey’s Anatomy which I will admit to still watching after 14 seasons. And that’s real seasons as in years, not one of Tyra’s little “cycles”. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter (which is worth a full read), Ellen talks about the long, hard road she walked to get more than$20 million a year. You won’t be surprised to learn that is was no thanks to Patrick Dempsey.
