Grey's Anatomy stud Patrick Dempsey has revealed on the Ellen Show that he too was caught off guard by the sudden termination of Brooke Smith's character, Dr. Erica Hahn, from the show.
He also told the married talk show host that the bosses at ABC 'told' him what to say about the firing:
“ABC actually sends me over what I should [say] …ABC’s response … is that [I] should say: ‘We’ve had a great time working with her and that the conclusion of her [character] has been orgasmic’ — I’m sorry, I’m dyslexic! — ‘organic’ ending to the story line.’“
Spin, spin, spin!
Were the suits afraid of someone saying something they weren't supposed to?
