Isaiah Washington set for return to Grey's Anatomy

Isaiah Washington
Actor Isaiah Washington is set for a return to the medical drama he was forced out of following a gay slur scandal in 2006.

The star left Grey's Anatomy in disgrace in 2007 after it was alleged he upset gay co-star T.R. Knight during an on-set argument by calling him a derogatory homophobic word.

Washington apologised for his "unfortunate use of words" but his contract was not renewed by producers at the end of the show's season three, and the actor left the series.

He will return as Preston Burke for one of Sandra Oh's final shows - his doctor previously romanced Oh's character Cristina...

Kate Beckinsale
What were you doing 40 years ago in 1973? Our guess is that many of you reading weren't even born yet? Taking a look back at history, here were a few things going on in the world that year.

The biggest story was then President Richard Nixon told the world he was "not a crook," as the Watergate hearings began. Also that year George Steinbrenner purchased the New York Yankees for a mere $12 million from CBS. Popular films included The Exorcist, The Sting, Live and Let Die and Bobby squealed like a pig in Deliverance. Top TV shows in 73' included The Odd Couple, The Partridge Family, Columbo,...

Wishes Of A Television-aholic: 'Grey's Anatomy'

August 20th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
cast of grey's anatomy
When “Grey’s Anatomy” made its triumphant mid-season premiere in 2005, it was the much-needed cure for my nasty case of Bad-Television-itis, and a lusty, dramatic, hilarious parallel to my real life. Back then, this television-aholic was just a college student who worked part-time at a hospital and fantasized about some of the more attractive doctors who offered me, a lowly clerk in medical records, more than a perfunctory smile. Of course, the men on “Grey’s Anatomy” are hotter than all of the doctors in said hospital combined and the drama is juicier than a Georgia peach.

Gay Celebrities Who Are Out And Proud!

June 14th, 2011 10:00am EDT
Times really have changed in the media in terms of being proud and loud about sexuality. From the controversial episode of Ellen where she shouted out that she was gay, to the countless series today with gay characters as the stars. In honor of Gay Pride Month, we took a look at a few celebrities who are out and proud.

Cute couple, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi weren’t shy about their love when they exchanged vows three years ago. Ellen told People magazine on that day, "What can I say? I'm the luckiest girl in the world," says DeGeneres. "She's officially off the market. No one e...

Top Ten TV Goodbyes: Who Makes The List?

May 20th, 2011 5:00pm EDT
The Office Goodbye Michael
With Steve Carell leaving ‘The Office’ last month, it’s time to reflect on big goodbye episodes. I thought ‘The Office’ pulled off his departure well, although I’m not sure how I feel about the future of the show.

Here’s my top ten list of other shows that have successfully sent a character off in style. The rules: it is a true “goodbye” episode with a major character or star departing. If it happens off-screen, it doesn’t count. So that’s why I’m not including some obvious departures, such as Rhoda Morgenstern, Frank Burns, Coach Pantusso, etc.

Here they are. Do you agree?

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 7 Ep. 2 Recap: Lighting Strikes, Healing And Hope

October 7th, 2010 6:18am EDT
Cristina on the floor of the O.R.
The familiar faces at Seattle Grace are still recovering from the traumatic events of the Season 6 finale, but Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Derek (Patrick Demsey), Cristina (Sandra Oh) and the rest of the Grey’s Anatomy cast are finally getting on the road to recovery—slowly and painfully, but surely. The theme of tonight’s episode was lightning; how it rarely strikes in one place twice, and how quickly life can be over with a single bolt of chance.

The episode began with Meredith continuing to campaign for approval to return to surgery, resorting to crocodile tears and a lukewarm confession o...

Ellen Pompeo
We spotted a dressed down Ellen Pompeo outside Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles earlier this week. The "Grey's Anatomy" star wore tight gray pants and a somewhat sheer white top.

The actress says her character is going to have "some frustrating episodes" when the ABC medical drama returns on Sept. 23.

She told TV Guide, "The role that they have given Meredith is to take care of everybody and to try to make sure that everybody else is OK. She's the role of the caretaker, which, I guess, is her way of not dealing with her own thing."

40-year-old Ellen gave birth to daughter Stella Luna Pompeo I...
