The rumors were true --- Dr. Burke is dunzo! TMZ has confirmed that Isaiah Washington has been let go from Grey's Anatomy. Isaiah's rep, Howard Bragman, said that Shonda Rhimes, the Grey's head honcho, called Isaiah told him he would not have a place on the ABC hit next season. Reports are that the decision was a result of a "pattern of problematic behavior," and was only in part because of him throwing around homophobic remarks to co-star T.R. Knight.
Mr. "I'll just make a PSA and everything will be great" issued the following statement on his dismissal: "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore." The nerve! This guy has some ego and I'm so glad he got fired. By the end of the first episode of next season we'll forget he ever existed. Though, unfortunately for T.R. Knight, it might take a little bit longer. For more TV scoop, visit TV Cocktail.
