Who can blame em’? Who the hell wants some homophobic maniac running around? We have it from a very reliable source that Isaiah Washington has been let go from “Grey’s Anatomy” for reals. Our source? Jesus. Word is that he might appear a couple of times next season to wrap up dangling storyline concerns, but that’s that. It’s also been reported that he’s already searching for a new gig. Here’s what US Weekly had to say about it yesterday.
“He will not be back as a series regular,” a source close to ABC tells Us, noting that the embattled star, 43 – who has been under fire ever since calling costar T.R. Knight, 34, a “f–got” – “could possibly show up for a few episodes” next season.
Still, Washington’s rep insists, “Isaiah is not off the show. We do not have a contract yet, but we expect to.”
“The cast – especially the women – just don’t like him,” says a Grey’s source.
Sandra Oh sounds like a damn saint. A friend of Washington’s was reported as saying they wouldn’t fire him because they already sent Kate Walsh off to a spin-off and they don’t want to ruin the “magic”. Yeah, he sounds real magical. He’s friggin’ Peter Pan, Harry Potter and Houdini all in one. Isiah, do that magical thing where you call your gay co-worker a “faggot” and then lie about it! It’s like we’re in Oz!
