August 19th, 2014 8:57am EDT
Grey's Anatomy
This fall, ABC's "Shondaland Thursday" (coined after Shonda Rhimes) is sure to heat up now that Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder will all air on the same night, but the stars of all three shows kept cool this week by taking on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The challenge, put in motion by the ALS Association, initially began as a way to create awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Participants are urged to dump a bucket of ice water over their head or donate to the charity. As of Monday, Aug. 18, the ALS Association raised $15.6 million in donations.

Emma Kate Debuts "Neon Yellow Hearts," Chats About Her Upcoming
You can't help but want to dance and sing along when you hear Emma Kate's latest single, "Neon Yellow Hearts," a nostalgic song about her high school group's last night together. I recently had the opportunity to speak with the singer-songwriter about her music and upcoming EP prior to last night's showcase at The Bitter End in New York City.

How did you get your start in music?

I've been singing my whole life in school, in barber shop quartets and in a cappella groups, but in tenth grade I had the opportunity of meeting singer-songwriter Matt White through a mutual friend who had gone to...

May 15th, 2014 8:27am EDT
Grey's Anatomy
After her crushing loss, Cristina learned from Owen that several hospitals wanted her to come and present, including The Cleveland Clinic and The Klausman Institute in Zurich. Although her future plans were still up in the air, Cristina was confident that her next step involved getting through the upcoming board meeting, which was set up by Richard without Jackson’s knowledge. Richard called the meeting to discuss Dr. Russell’s resignation and Catherine’s confession. Although Russell declined to link his exit to Cristina’s Harper Avery Award snub, it was about the Harper Avery Award snub. I...

It’s the day after Cristina failed to win the Harper Avery Award and she’s nowhere to be found. She’s not on the flight back to Seattle with Meredith and Owen and she won’t pick up her phone, which has them both worried.

Back at the hospital, Shane and Arizona work with Dr. Russell, who takes over Cristina’s cases in her absence. After Arizona rounds with him, Alex approaches her with a compliment and she immediately knows something is up. Now that he’s been fully backed by the private practice doctors, he decides to tell her about his new job opportunity, since he has to give them a defin...

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: 'I'm Winning'
“The Harper Avery is one of the highest awards a surgeon can earn. They always make the calls to the nominees on the same Friday of the same month at 8 A.M. east coast time, 5 A.M. in Seattle,” Meredith states in the opening voiceover, just as an alarm goes off. Meredith and Cristina wake up at 5 A.M. sharp in Cristina’s bed, patiently waiting for some news. After a brief moment of hesitation, Cristina gets the call. She’s been nominated for the Harper Avery Award. She tries to downplay the nomination at work, but her coworkers are thrilled – including Shane, who feels like he received a no...

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: 'You Be Illin''

April 17th, 2014 11:46am EDT
Grey's Anatomy
Doctors treat sick patients all the time, but what happens when the doctors of Grey's Anatomy become the patients? We found out in this week's episode after a nasty flu made its way around the hospital.

After a patient sneezes on Arizona, she immediately knows that she'll be sick later in the day. Apparently it's some sort of sixth sense she's developed, which Alex mocks her about. She's not the only one, though - the hospital becomes overrun with patients dealing with flu-like symptoms and the staff starts to (literally) fall down one by one.

Arizona’s intuition forces her to move up her...

Her latest single “LoveSick” became the #1 Most Added Debut Pop Record. The song’s success also made her the youngest indie artist to chart at Top 40 since LeAnn Rimes back in 1997.

March 30th, 2014 12:31pm EDT
Grey's Anatomy
As we all slowly prepare to say goodbye to Dr. Cristina Yang, it’s only fitting that this week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy revolved around her uncertain future and how life could be with Owen if things were just a little bit different.

Cristina begins to imagine different scenarios of her life after an encounter with a patient. The patient, Jason, was in a severe car accident. Cristina flawlessly operates with Shane to fix Jason’s heart, but he’s paralyzed from the neck down. After surgery, Cristina speaks to Jason’s wife about his condition and reiterates that he will never be able to bre...
