Isaiah Washington Announced His Early Retirement From Acting On Twitter… Unless
Grey’s Anatomy’s former chief resident homophobe, 59-year-old “Frederick Douglass Conservative” Isaiah Washington, recently announced his “early retirement from the entertainment industry” on “Twatter,” with the same energy of a former Disney child actor who’s been temporarily shaded off Twitter by their pop-star ex’s new piece. Only in Isaiah’s case, it’s “the haters, provocateurs and the Useful Idiots,” who have driven him to this extreme, which presumably includes the star of The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature, Isaiah’s former Grey’s castmate Katherine Heigl.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” Writer Who Faked Cancer Finally Admitted To Faking Cancer
Back in March, the world was introduced to the wild saga of Elisabeth Finch, a writer on Grey’s Anatomy and former writer on True Blood. The Ankler accused 44-year-old Elisabeth (blue hairnet lady in the header pic) of lying about battling a rare type of bone cancer, her brother committing suicide, a kidney loss, and having an abortion during chemotherapy. Elisabeth didn’t just weave her web of lies to friends; she wrote about them in personal essays for Elle, The Hollywood Reporter, and Shonda Rhimes’ website, Shondaland. Some of her tales actually made it into Grey’s Anatomy storylines. After The Ankler’s report, Grey’s put Elisabeth on administrative leave and ABC’s parent company, Disney, announced that they planned to investigate. She resigned before they could and checked herself into an in-patient treatment center in Arizona. Now, nine months later, Elisabeth has finally fessed up to all her bullshit in an interview with The Ankler. Spoiler alert: she did it for the attention.
Ellen Pompeo’s Time As A Full Time Cast Member On “Grey’s Anatomy” Is Over
I’ve heard of velvet handcuffs and golden handcuffs, but the platinum bracelets ABC and Shonda Rhimes slapped on Grey’s Anatomy’s titular star, Ellen Pomeo, must have been so weighed down with diamonds she finally had to chew her own hand off to escape. Deadline reports that Ellen is finally stepping away from the spotlight after 19 seasons as a “full-time cast member” but promises she’ll “definitely be back to visit.” This is good because she’s going to probably need to have somebody take a look at that severed hand of hers so she can be refitted for a lovely pair of diamond-encrusted Special Guest Appearance By/Executive Producer handcuffs.
Eric Dane Says He Keeps Getting Dick Pics And Dirty DMs
Last week, Eric Dane said in an interview that although he’s straight, he can relate to the conflicted feelings of the awful and closeted-gay character he plays on Euphoria and that he hopes his portrayal lends a voice to members of the LGBTQ+ community who may relate. On the latest stop on his “I’m not a gay I just play one on TV” tour, Eric shared that he’s single, and despite being straight, his inbox is a smorgasbord of schwanz and dirty messages from dudes.
Ellen Pompeo Calls Katherine Heigl A “Hero” For Roasting The Long Working Hours On “Grey’s Anatomy” In 2009
Ellen Pompeo and Katherine Heigl were on Grey’s Anatomy together from the jump in 2005. B while Katherine and Ellen were both on the show from Day One, Ellen is the only one standing today as Katherine left the show after the 2009-2010 season over some drama. It started in 2007 with Katherine withdrawing from Emmys consideration and dragging the show saying she wasn’t given the “material” deserving of a nomination. And in 2009, Katherine was on Late Night with David Letterman and called out the show for making her work 17-hour days. Some called Katherine “ungrateful” for that. Well, 13 years later, Ellen Pompeo has come to Katherine’s defense. “Better late than never, I guess,” said Katherine, somewhere.
Jesse Williams Wants His Child Support Payments Reduced Since He’s Not On “Grey’s Anatomy” Anymore
Jesse Williams and Aryn Drake-Lee filed for divorce in 2017 and spent the next few years battling it out over money, child support, schedules, assets, Jesse’s alleged anger issues, his “revolving door” of girlfriends, and that maybe-affair with Minka Kelly. The exes, who’d been together since 2007, officially finalized their divorce in August 2020. They settled on joint custody of their two kids, 6-year-old Maceo and 8-year-old Sadie, and Jesse was ordered to pay Aryn $40,000 a month in child support. But less than two years later, Jesse is back in court asking for his child support payments to please, please, pleeeease be reduced. His reasoning? After leaving Grey’s Anatomy, he’s no longer making those Shonda Rhimes big bucks.
