Isaiah Washington’s version of what happened on the set of Grey’s Anatomy–that he used the word in the course of a fight with Patrick Dempsey–is far more credible than T.R. Knight’s, that he used it directed personally at Knight. Unless Washington is difficult to work with in general, that show booted one of its best characters for very shabby reasons. Word to the wise, Grey’s–Drs. Burke, Yang, Bailey, Karev, Webber, and Torres are a hell of a lot more likeable than the titular Dr. Grey or Drs. Shepherd, O’Malley, or Stevens. Hope you’ve got some stellar stuff lined up for next season with no more unfortunate cast depletion.


  1. If anybody remembers, in the shadow of all the soap opera-ish uproar, Washington’s account is how it was initially reported in the first place. Nothing like an agenda to twist history.

  2. Right on. But if I recall correctly it was reported as Washington’s version in the first place and Dempsey had no comment … and then Knight and Heigl started. Nothing like word against word and firing somebody to protect yourself from a probably erroneous public opinion.
