Typically when co-stars of the opposite sex are seen out at night on a date to the movies, relationship and hookup rumors are soon to follow.
But that's not the case with Katherine Heigl and her Grey's Anatomy pal T.R. Knight. With T.R. preferring the guys and Katherine happily engaged, it becomes quite evident that last night was simply two friends enjoying one another's company.
Racking up an extremely impressive 10 Emmy nominations, the hit drama series Grey's Anatomy will head into the start of its new season with some strong momentum. The breakdown for the individual nominations is as follows:
* Sandra Oh - Best Supporting Actress
* Katherine Heigl - Best Supporting Actress
* Chandra Wilson - Best Supporting Actress
* T.R. Knight - Best Supporting Actor
* Kate Burton - Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series
* Elizabeth Reaser - Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series
We all make mistakes. We say things we shouldn’t say; we do things we shouldn’t do. In Isaiah Washington’s case, he made some pretty rude homophobic comments about T.R. Knight, his Grey’s Anatomy costar. All involved were hurt, but it looks like there’s forgiveness on the set of the list-topping drama.
Katherine Heigl has publicly forgiven Washington for his verbal indiscretion. "I know that he was very ashamed and that was a necessary emotion to move forward and not backward. His attitude and behavior and thought process needed to change, and the only way to do that is to be self-aware and honest. And I think he was. I have forgiven."
Most of the stars of the hit medical drama series 'Grey's Anatomy' have agreed new contracts, and as could be assumed... they will not need to pick up a second job to cover the bills.
The Hollywood Reporter states that, under the new deal, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) will receive almost $200,000 per episode, while her co-stars James T Pickens Jr (Richard Webber) and Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey) will receive somewhere in the ballpark of $125,000 per episode.
T.R. Knight may be preparing for an abrupt exit from the hit tv show “Grey’s Anatomy”.
The actor was the recipient of a widely-publicized homophobic slur by co-star, Isaiah Washington, and he “is so upset about the situation and so disgusted by how it was all handled,” that he’s planning to leave the show, a source told msnbc.
“He was told not to say anything about the whole incident,” said the insider, referring to an on-set barb in October when fellow cast member Isaiah Washington referred to Knight, who plays Dr. George O’Malley, with a derogatory word used to describe gay men.
It has been recently reported via TMZ that, after a firestorm of controversy over his use of offensive language and calls for him to apologize, "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington issued the following statement:
"I apologize to T.R., my colleagues, the fans of the show and especially the lesbian and gay community for using a word that is unacceptable in any context or circumstance."
"By repeating the word Monday night, I marred what should have been a perfect night for everyone who works on 'Grey's Anatomy.' I can neither defend, nor explain my behavior. I can also no longer deny to myself that there are issues I obviously need to examine within my own soul, and I've asked for help."
Washington supposedly referred to costar T.R. Knight with a slur for homosexual during an on-set exchange in October and then repeated the word during a backstage interview at the Golden Globes on Monday night .
