Shonda Rhimes: Derek Loves Meredith!

at . Comments

After Shonda Rhimes and TV Guide's Michael Ausiello exchanged words about the critic's review of Private Practice, the producer of both shows gave him some hot scoop concerning the Grey's Anatomy embattled supercouple.

If you don't mind Grey's Anatomy spoilers, follow the jump to read her comments on Meredith and Derek, as well as another couple we know ...

"I want to be clear that Derek loves Meredith," Shonda Rhimes said, as if to put the debate over Lexie Grey to rest once and for all. "Derek loves Meredith more than anything. I can't imagine Derek going anyplace else other than Meredith."

And as if to butter up the TV Guide sleuth even more, the Grey's Anatomy creator and executive producer handed him the biggest gift a Grey's Anatomy fan could ask for (at least in his opinion): a death certificate with O'Mizzie's name.

Oh, O'Mizzie

"A lot of people aren't sold on Izzie and George," Rhimes acknowledged. "I think the mistake that everyone makes is that we are telling you Izzie and George are the love story of the century; they're not the love story of the century. When other people find out about Izzie and George ... remember, people don't know about them yet â€" other people might think that's not a good idea either."

Lastly, on the red carpet, James Pickens Jr. teased that there will be some drama surrounding Richard's living situation (i.e., you won't believe who's moving in next door)! Interesting! Comments?

George and Izzie are my all-time, hands-down favorite "Grey's" couple; Derek and Mer are my second favorite. If either relationship ends, my interest in watching "Grey's" will likewise evaporate.

Derek loves Meredith. Yes we all know (we can see it from his charming eyes which keep saying "i love u so much" every time he sees mer). But does Meredith feel the same way towards Derek?? I mean.. I know she loves him .. or maybe loved him... but I just cant see it in the last few episodes. Where is the woman who told the guy he loves "Pick me. Choose me. Love me." I want that woman back!!! I want Meredith to prove to Derek that she loves him so much and don't want him to leave. We all know she does. I love this couple ever since I started watching GA. But now I'm disappointed with all of the on/off thing between them. PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. GIVE ME BACK MY SWEET COUPLE THAT UNDOUBTEDLY LOVING EACH OTHER. SHOW US SOME ROMANTIC MER/DER MOMENT. WE DONT NEED THAT I LOVE U / I DONT LOVE U STUFF. WE NEED THOSE MOMENT SHOWING HOW HAPPY AND HOW LUCKY THEY ARE FOR HAVING EACH OTHER. PLEASE??

I, too, can't imagine Derek being with someone else other than Meredith. It's like true love in personification indeed. hmmmm....

I must be one of the few (if not the only one) who is so sick & tired of the Derek/Meredith storyline. They both need to move on!!! After flipping a lamp on again & off again so many times, the bulb finally blows. I really do miss Addison....I didn't care who she was with....she was one of my favorite characters & Kate Walsh is one of my favorite actresses.

I want Mer/Der together, but jeez Mer needs to give some of the Der sweetness back. I think it is time for Alex to fall for someone (don't know if it should be Ava or whatever her name is??) I'm all for George and Izzy, I just wish Callie would be the one to break it off. Maybe Alex should go in the linen closet with Callie???????

Just watching the new Grey video and in that scene where George and Izzie are on the couch, smiling at each other, Izzie,s smile is so beautiful. I love that just being around George makes her light up like a Christmas tree, talk about love, aww!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
