DID HE WALK....OR WAS HE PUSHED ?

linnea said...

ah, i want to know! I am thinking this might have something to do with how the lesbian character was pushed off the show without any kind of warning.. did he not like how they got scared and decided to cut her out?

nellyb said...

Unless he is the answer to the Ausiello Files blind item where the producers weren't sure whether to keep him or get rid of him, since he doesn't have that much of a storyline anymore on greys. I guess his bf better look for a new daddy. LOL.

welll i've been saying they were going to kill off Izzy so maybe he walked in support of Heigl OR they brought back Dr. Burke!!!

Moosefan said...

Oh my Gawd!!! Now we have to listen to Kathy Heigel run her mouth about how "its not cool, blah blah blah". Way to go TR!!! Just cause she is your best gal and you love hearing her bitch and complain about the people who have made her a household name and how much in love she is with her hubby-it soooo does not mean that we want to hear it. Try getting over yourself TR and as they say-MAKE IT WORK!!

Becki said...

Damn. This either has to do with Brookegate (and Enty, I KNOW you have scoop on that) of KH;'s character being killed off.

Lexie said...

Damn I hope he took Kwhore with him.

from BlindGossip, Nov 24:

Bad Behavior Equals Dead Character

Which character on an popular television drama is going to be killed off? While the character is one of the key members of the cast, the actor or actress is acting so badly that they have caused friction within the cast and has exhausted the patience of the show’s head honcho.

Thought it was Heigl, but maybe Knight was causing trouble...

Dave said...

I have to wonder how unhappy Knight has been on Grey's ever since Chokegate went down. Especially in how the situation was handled by ABC and Shonda Rhimes.

And then to have ABC fire a fellow actor because of a lesbian storyline? Yeah, I'd Flame On and burn the whole set down if I were on that show.

Maybe it's for the best that Knight leaves. That show is nothing but behind-the-scenes drama, drama, drama.

jax said...

when Izzy started banging a dead guy...the show jumped the shark, the tank and a beluga fucking whale. FAIL.

Denny has come to take Izzy back to lala land and i think she's going to off herself in the season ender.

linnea said...

i know jaz, the show has really left me thinking "HUH????" at the end of each episode. i mean, they did push it a little bit with meredith and that death episode, but right now its just too weird for me, at least.

yellow said...

Brooke Smith was not fired because of the lesbian storyline. She was fired because she was ugly. ABC could not come out and say that. Only 10% of the population is gay, but 50% is uglier than the other half, they would offend more people.

Sara Ramirez's gay character is currently flirting with Melissa George's character, and she is going to have thing with the character played by Kate Capshaw's daughter. So much for degaying GA.

Sylvia said...

Necrophilia ---- yuck

gauchogirl said...

The most ironic thing is that in last weeks's episode, Izzy's character was the most likeable it's been in a long time. Putting her in the sack with a dead guy, who would have thought it?

Gayla said...

WTF? I don't watch Grey's so now this whole necrophilia plotline has me...disturbed, to say the least. What the hell is that all about?

linnea said...

well, Danny (who was KH's fiance) has come back from the dead and he is now... well, they are sort of... dating, i guess? She spent the night with him, and made some weird comment about how she "could hear his heart beat, which was strange cause they took that out in the autopsy."

DNfromMN said...

Ausiello posted inside scoop last week about what's going on with Heigl. It's not a toomah, and she isn't going crazy (and it's not necrophilia if there's no dead body to do it with). But it implied that she will not die.

My guess is that they just don't know what to do with George, and if TR is being a brat about it (per the Ausiello and Watch with Kristin blinds), off he should go.

Blondie said...

might want to check this out, beware though, it reveals the spoiler about what is the deal with Izzie/Denny and why she sees him.

jax said...

he's an idiot if you ask me.
a shit role on tv is better THAN NO ROLE ON TV. and if he was acting like a freakin diva no one is going to hire him. it's not like he has any goddamn range anyway.

does this asshole realize how many actors in LA would kill for his role?

now when they axe heigl, the two can play the George and Izzy show in her garage.

Karma is a bitch. He wanted Isiah off the show, got his way and now he's so unhappy he's leaving anyway.

Awww poor baby who's fault is it now?

Dawn said...

Not on my dollar - I agree with you totally, karma is a bitch.

Muckbeast said...

WOW! The show would be so much better without this whiny little twit.

Patti said...

so glad george is leaving. He seems like a trouble maker and a mean nasty gay guy... wish they would take denny out of the show and not izzie..
