Shame. Then again, with a new baby on the way, we applaud him for seeking the help he needs to be a better man for his family.
Eric Dane has checked into a Los Angeles rehab clinic according to his spokesperson. The Grey's Anatomy star is in the middle of a 30-day stint, which his spokesperson insists will not conflict with his responsibilities to the show. His rep told Star Magazine:
“Eric Dane voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility to help him get off of pain medication that he was prescribed for a sports injury that he suffered over the recent hiatus. He reports back to work next week. Business as usual.”
The important thing is he is getting help. The show can do without him for awhile if need be, but his wife and kids deserve to have a healthy papa.
We're proud of you for taking such a difficult but necessary step and we wish you a lot of luck!
Get better soon!
