Isaiah Washington: "I Was Exploited!"

Okay, unless Isaiah Washington becomes Jennifer Aniston's new boyfriend this will officially be my last entry on the guy. After all his blabbing about how sorry he was for gay-bashing T.R. Knight, and how disappointed he was by not being asked back to Grey's Anatomy for the new season, the actor is now pointing fingers, saying he wasn't the one that should have been fired. "I have to clear my name. I'll start from the beginning. I'm telling everything. So here's the truth."

Enlighten us, Isaiah. Should it have been Patrick Dempsey who put you in your place? Or Katherine Heigl who actually stood up for her friend? Or maybe it should have been T.R., who you basically outed? Believe it or not, Isaiah had the stones to tell the Houston Chronicle that, yes, it should have been T.R. that got the boot. "I feel all this was about him getting a raise and getting his character to stop being perceived as a dopey, cooky kind of character. He perceives himself as a leading man. That's why you could see the change this past season. That was his whole impetus behind it," the actor said. "I was used and I was exploited. I may be wrong but that's how I feel about it." And he says you're the one that's delusional if you think he's homophobic. "I knew T.R. was gay but I would never attack him because of his sexual orientation. That's stupid. I've been working with lesbian and gays for 21 years in this business. My whole existence has coexisted evenly and beautifully with individuals who happen to be gay, but more importantly are immensely talented. There's no way in my mind and my heart I could be homophobic." Not another word, Isaiah. Not another word.
