That’s smart of Jesse Williams to Instagram a picture of himself at work on Grey’s Anatomy. It’s a convenient way to remind people that he does do other things with his time besides publicly feuding with his estranged wife.
Earlier this week, Aryn Drake-Lee cranked her divorce battle with Jesse Williams up to 11 by demanding a judge give her sole custody of their two children, and accusing Jesse of all kinds of alleged bad daddy behavior. Like accusing Jesse of having a “revolving door” of women and scarring their kids with his rage issues. Jesse not-so-subtly swatted back at Aryn on Twitter with a quote about “desperate times.” Jesse’s publicist must have recognized that tweet from their 101 Ways To Not Handle Bad Press, because a much less petty statement was written and released yesterday by his rep regarding the situation.
“These are matters for the court to decide. Jesse has been working tirelessly to maintain his bond with their children and it is important to note that the dramatizations made in Aryn’s declaration are a one-sided account made with a specific goal in mind. The judge is fully informed on both sides of the story and will be making the final decision.”
That statement is so very dramatic. Not only does Jesse pull a “Well we’ll see what the judge has to say about this!“, but he also gets in some subtle digs at his estranged wife. And it ends with a total cliffhanger! That statement reads like a soap opera monologue recited by character gazing out a window while clutching a glass of brandy. Honestly, Shonda Rhimes shouldn’t worry about who is going to run her shows when she leaves ABC for Netflix. Put Jesse Williams in charge, he’s obviously well-versed in drama.
