A "Grey's" Update...

Here’s an update on the backstage happenings of “Grey’s Anatomy”…

After rumors of script changes and a recast (with Eriq LaSalle of “ER”), Isaiah Washington finally issued a public apology last week, saying that he had personally apologized to everyone involved and he truly regretted his choice of words.

Series creator Shonda Rhimes denies that there were any rewrites or talks of a recast and says that everything is now fine. But Michael Ausiello of “TV Guide” reports that things are not hunky-dory on the set at all.

So what actually happened? This week’s “People” reports that T.R. Knight (George) was late to film a scene and Patrick Dempsey (Derek) insisted on waiting for him, which led to the confrontation between Dempsey and Washington (Burke). Washington then used a homophobic slur against Knight, though Knight was not present at the time. Apparently, reporters from “The National Enquirer” witnessed the entire argument, which probably led Knight to publicly announce that he was gay.

I have a feeling that this one isn’t over yet, so stay tuned…
