Now officially released from 'Grey's Anatomy,' Isaiah Washington has opened up in an attempt to clear his name of the negativity currently associated with it. And the slurful former Dr. Preston Burke is coming out pointing fingers at his ex castmates.
In an interview on 'Larry King Live', Washington spoke of a heated dispute with co-star Patrick Dempsey, claiming that it all started as a result of Dr. McDreamy's inability to tell time.
If he wasn’t known for his role on Grey’s Anatomy, he was definitely known for the gay bashing. And now Isaiah Washington is complaining that Grey’s fired him over racism, rather than for the hate speech he committed.
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.
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.
The hit television show 'Grey's Anatomy' has been plagued by one problem after another. Now that the controversy surrounding Isaiah Washington's anti-gay remarks has subsided, People magazine reported recently that Katherine Heigl, who plays "Izzie" on the show, was "disappointed" and "hurt" that Touchstone didn't "value her as much as her co-stars, especially Sandra Oh and Isaiah Washington."
Network giant ABC, however, has said that despite their long-term contract with the star, Heigl was recently offered a raise.
