Who is the greatest diva of all? This is a question that has haunted man since Cher warbled her first note to Sonny Bono. Answers from Celine Dion to Simon Cowell to your cousin Brandy have been given, but no one has yet reached the ultimate heights of divadom…until now. The current crop of divas can’t hold a candle to the wind to Elton the golden retriever! Like most dogs, Elton loves a good walk but what sets him apart from the rest is his desire, nay…DEMAND to have his paws washed after every stroll through the park. Take notes, Mariah. This is how you diva!
There’s an upcoming book about the behind-the-scenes drama of Grey’s Anatomy, entitled, How to Save a Life: The Inside Story of Grey’s Anatomy. It’s written by Entertainment Weekly’s Lynette Rice, and there’s already talk (in this very post) that she’ll sweep the Pulitzers, the Booker Prizes, and the Gossipy Biotch Awards. Sorry, super-serious authors of ~literature~, this ain’t your year!
The book spills tea about Patrick Dempsey’s 2015 exit from the show. There have always been rumors that Dr. McDreamy got killed off cuz Patrick was a diva and Shonda Rimes hated him. But now we have actual confirmation from executive producer James D. Parriott, who was brought back to the series to oversee Patrick’s exit. James says that Patrick got fired due to non-sexual “HR issues.” Apparently, he was terrorizing the set, and “some cast members had all sorts of PTSD with him.” James adds that Shonda and Patrick were at each other’s throats, Ellen Pompeo was frustrated over his constant complaining about long hours, and he “didn’t like the inconvenience of coming in every day and working.” Bitch, welcome to the club!

Rachel Barry cannot catch a break (which, I guess, tends to happen when you act like a sociopathic, privileged asshole around people in your industry). The shitstorm continues to rain down on the former HelloFresh spokesmodel and red carpet snub-ee, Lea Michele, who, after a week of being called out by former co-stars for racism, bullying and just general fuckery, is now standing accused of transphobia by model Plastic Martyr AND of calling former co-worker and actress, Monica Moskatow, “ugly”.
Constance Wu has already been labeled a difficult diva with an evil bunny sidekick who leaves a wake of bunny poo destruction everywhere they go. She threw a hissy fit on Twitter after learning that the show that made her a star, Fresh Off The Boat, got renewed (because she wanted to do another project) and there’s already been talk that she was a menace on the set of Hustlers. Now there’s a rumor that Constance Wu demanded top billing over Jennifer Lopez, who is a bigger star and produced the whole thing. Err, if Constance Wu actually won a diva-off with JLo and made it out alive, then she deserves that dumb top billing win.
Why do I get the feeling the cast and crew of Fresh Off The Boat just started an open text chain with the cast and crew of Hustlers, and that text chain is about to be filled with the eye-rolling emoji and the words “Oh, I KNOW.” If this story from Page Six is correct, then my guess about everyone shit-talking over text might be too.
