Isiah Washington Leaving Grey's Anatomy

We would lie if we said we didn’t see this one coming. After a controversial season,actor Isaiah Washington will leaving ABC’s hit show “Grey's Anatomy”.

There was speculation that Isiah would be dropped from the show after he got into a altercation with Patrick Dempsey, during which he allegedly referred to cast mate T.R. Knight with a homophobic slur. But Isiah took the Young Hollywood route and entered rehab to deal with his "problem". Seems like rehab only works for people who have no real jobs because Isiah is dunzo.

If you watch the show, you probably noticed how he was cut when his character Dr. Preston Burke broke up with his fiancée, Christina Yang (Sandra Oh), and moved out of their apartment.

Washington’s publicist Howard Bragman, says the actors option was not renewed, and released this statement from the actor: "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more."

Isiah had become a huge liability for ABC and they didn’t want to deal with him anymore. What do all you “Grey’s” fanatics t hink, was it unfair to drop Isiah?
