Grey's Anatomy's Isaiah Washington Slams Katherine Heigl, 13 Years After She Called Him Out for Using Homophobic Slur

Isaiah Washington was fired from Grey’s Anatomy back in 2007 for using a homophobic slur, and now, 13 years later, he is calling out his former co-star, Katherine Heigl.

In the Golden Globes press room back in 2007, Washington famously addressed the rumor that he used a derogatory term and said, “No, I did not call T.R. [Knight] a f—-t. Never happened, never happened.”

Katherine slammed Washington at the time, saying, “I’m going to be really honest right now, he needs to just not speak in public. Period. I’m sorry, that did not need to be said, I’m not okay with it.”

Well, on Monday (November 16), Washington tweeted a photo of Katherine with the caption, “This woman once proclaimed that I should ‘never’ be allowed to speak publicly again. The world agreed with her proclamation back then and protested for my job and my head in 65 languages. I wish I was on Twitter in 2007, because I will NEVER stop exercising my free speech.”

He then continued to tweet out more and more about the incident.

'Grey’s Anatomy's Camilla Luddington Clears Up Debate About Cast Wearing KN95 Masks Behind The Scenes

Camilla Luddington is setting the record straight on the masks that she and her co-stars are wearing on the new season of Grey’s Anatomy.

After getting back to work on the show in September, and the premiere happening just last week, one viewer pointed out that the cast were seen wearing KN95 masks and that they didn’t need to be “wasting” them when they could be donated to real life healthcare professionals.

“If you see any of us wearing KN95s behind the scenes it’s because we are wearing our costume masks. We don’t also get an extra KN95 to wear between takes,” Camilla pointed out.

Major fans of the show will remember that Grey’s was one of the first to donate all the supplies they had to first responders when the pandemic first wave took over.

“Shonda [Rhimes] sort of handed over all of our masks and hospital gowns — everything we had,” Kim Raver shared in March about how the pandemic impacted the show and how they gave back. “I was in New York doing Third Watch on 9/11, and [the producers] did the same thing, donating lights and anything else that they could use at Ground Zero. In these moments, I really believe that the good comes out [in people].”

Over the weekend, Camilla also spoke about the surprise return of Patrick Dempsey. Here’s what she said…

Camilla Luddington Talks About That Big 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 17 Premiere Surprise!

Camilla Luddington is dishing on the Grey’s Anatomy season premiere!

During a new interview with E! News, the 36-year-old actress talked about the surprising ending moment that featured the return of Patrick Dempsey‘s Dr. Derek Shepherd, revealing that she was one of the lucky ones that knew about his return.

“I found out from [showrunner] Krista [Vernoff],” Camilla shared. “I didn’t know that some actors didn’t know. I thought we all knew, but I guess we didn’t.”

Camilla also recalled how in the premiere script, it said that Ellis Grey (Kate Burton) would be the one to meet Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) on the beach, but admitted it didn’t feel right.

“There’s something about this…this is weird,” Camilla remembers thinking. “And then Krista told me it was Patrick, and I was thinking to myself there’s no way these two actors are going to go to the beach in the middle of the day with a ton of crew and a picture isn’t gonna be taken, or it’s not gonna leak, or someone’s not gonna say something. And it didn’t. I’m so happy because it would have spoiled this amazing surprise for the fans last night.”

'Grey's Anatomy' Showrunner Reveals How Many Episodes Patrick Dempsey Will Appear In This Season

There was a huge surprise during the season 17 premiere of Grey’s Anatomy – the return of Patrick Dempsey as Derek Shepherd.

The 54-year-old actor appeared on the ABC series again as part of Ellen Pompeo‘s character Meredith Grey’s dream sequence.

You might remember that Derek died during a tragic accident in an episode that aired back in April 2015.

Grey’s showrunner Krista Vernoff has confirmed that we’ll be seeing more of Derek this season.

“We will see more of [Derek] this season,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “This was not just a cameo. He will appear three more times.”

She also talked about how she kept the return a surprise from everyone, including cast and crew.

Krista said, “We didn’t tell the writers for the longest time. When she’s walking and she looks as someone is calling to her, and she goes, ‘Derek?’ In the script, I had it as Ellis Grey. And she goes, ‘Mom?’ We read it at the table that way. Nobody knew what we were doing — to the point that when the crew showed up on the day we shot the scene, nobody knew. It was top secret.”

Ellen just revealed the one word she wasn’t allowed to say on TV during season one.

Ellen Pompeo Reveals the Word She Wasn't Allowed to Say on 'Grey's Anatomy' in Season 1

Ellen Pompeo is opening up about the history of Grey’s Anatomy in a new interview following the show’s shocking season 17 premiere.

The actress, who plays Meredith Grey, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live following the premiere on Thursday night (November 12).

Ellen revealed that in season one, ABC wouldn’t let her and cast members say the word “vagina,” though there was no issue with the word “penis.”

“There was a big fight — I may be butchering this story but — there was a big fight because with standards and practices, which I’m sure you deal with on occasion, you can say ‘penis,’ but you couldn’t say ‘vagina,’ at the time,” Ellen said in the interview.

She continued, “And that’s why … That’s where the term ‘va-jay-jay’ came from. [Shonda Rhimes] made up ‘va-jay-jay’ because standards and practices would not let us say ‘vagina.’ And Shonda‘s argument was like, ‘We said “penis” in that episode 97 times. You can say “penis” 97 times but you can’t say “vagina”?’”

“They were like, ‘Yep, yep, you can’t say “vagina.”‘ So she came up with ‘va-jay-jay’ and that’s how that problem was solved,” Ellen said.
