What comes after an award show? The juicy stuff that we can’t see! At a Golden Globes after party, Katherine Heigl stood up for her “Grey’s Anatomy” co-star T.R. Knight in response to comments made by cast mate Isaiah Washington.
He reportedly made yet another homophobic comment and Heigl responded saying, "I'm going to be really honest right now, he needs to just not speak in public. Period. I'm sorry, that did not need to be said, I'm not okay with it.” Ouch! Go Katherine!
Earlier in the night, Washington tried to mend things and set the record straight but he just ended up digging a deeper hole for himself. When a reporter asked him about the incident, Washington said, "No, I did not call T.R. a faggot. Never happened, never happened."
After he left the pressroom he continued his interview with Access Hollywood saying com "There is no way I could do anything so vile, and so horrible, not only to a cast mate, but to a fellow human being… It did not happen. I was going to hire some great shiny publicist, but God laid it on my heart to say it because it was so close. The reports were all wrong… I'm very disappointed that the New York Post actually wrote legitimately about something that was put in a tabloid about some angry person to get some validity to this, and then it just rippled."
Heigl still angered continued saying, "I have no idea what it was, I just find it hurtful...I just feel like this is something that should be very much in house we need to deal with and it's among us and the cast and crew and among Shonda (Rhimes, show creator) and the producers… I don't think he (Washington) means it the way he comes off... But, T.R. is my best friend. I will throw down for that kid. I will beat you up. I will use every ounce of energy I have to take you down if you hurt his feelings."
This is some crazy drama going down. Wonder how awkward it will be on the set. Come on guys you better not ruin my favorite show.
