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?

yay! :]]
I loveee it that they still love each other! [well it is kindif obvious LOL]
but hm..the george + izzie thing; im not so sure about.


I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE George and Izzie. All my friends and I are obsessed with them and watch for them, so they better not be over. But what, does this make the second or third time Aussiello swear they are over even though it has nothing but his take on Shonda's words to back him up, and nothing else. Maybe he thinks it saying it all the time will make it true. If anything, this revealed him as the hack he really is. He has no spoilers or sourfces on his own and has to rely on what he thinks Shonda's words mean. I find it hard to understand why a site like you would take speculations from someone, speculation about someone else,s words, as spoilers, except if you guys want to believe it because it fits with what you want to hear. If that is the case, it is pretty sad. And for all the people who do love george and Izzie, if you want to let Shonda know, there is a petition for them:


Two points for you guys: a lot, and I mean a lot of people, love george and Izzie together. You should check the Grey anatomy section on Fanforum and and the george and Izzie fan thread just reached his fifthieth thread. The only other couple to have more is Meredith and Derek aand they only have one thread more. They are also second to them only in the number of fans, we have 222 people posting there and they live and breathe george and Izzie there. So why don't you stop posting Aussiello's speculations on things Shonda had already told us as facts? It does nothing for your credibility


I am sorry, but what spoilers? There is nothing new in there at all, and you guys keep jumping up and believing like fools every single thing Aussiello is telling you. You are even rewording what he is saying, LOL. Don't you guys have your own mind? And no Gizzie ending would not be a great ift to anyone. If you guys had the intelligence to read your comments and go on the Net a bit, and just TWOP and your own site, you'd realize a lot of people love Gizzie which is why there is only a 3% difference between the lovers and haters on the ABC board. And there is a poll on teamsugar about favorite couple, and Gizzie is winning by a HUGE margin, so much for everyone hating them, LOL. Anyhow, I love george and Izzie and they are the reason i watch this crappy show. So if Shonda cowards before the haters, I am quitting this show. But so far, I have no indication she is saying that. As a person posted above, Shonda has said the same words about Gizzie a few weeks back, so there is nothing new here and no official confirmation at all she is ending them. There is also no confirmation Meredith and Derek will be together. Him loving her does not mean they will be reunited. Geez, you people are sure good at twisting words to make it fit what you want.


I agree with Megan, ill stop watching it.


Those are spoilers, ha ha. We know Derek loves Meredith, noone ever doubted that. We know he won't be with Lexie as Shonda said this three weeks ago already. And those comments on Gizzie? she made the same comments exactkly a few weeks ago and Aussiello made the same death certificate comment back then. Dear Assiello is losing touch, he is reposting things he has already been told weeks before as brand-new spoilers even though she has really given him nothing. So Derek loves Meredith, does that tell me if they will be together and happy? No, he loved her in the finale and she walked away. Gizzie is not the love story of the century? Who is on this show? Doesn't change the fact that their love is the real deal however messy and difficult and complicated it might be. And the other characters will have a problem with this? What a shock...NOT! I am not seeing anything confirming Gizzie is over here. They might be, but they might not be either. Shonda is def. not stupid enough to give such a big spoiler up before the rpemiere especially not to a big pompous loser like Assiello. But one thing is clear: if they are over, they can count one viewer less because I am not watching this show without them.


JHmm, did I miss something, where did Shonda say Gizzie was over? She said they weren't the love story of the century, which she has said before by the way, and we know they are not because of the circumstances. That doesn,t mean they are not in love or that they will be over. She also said a lot of people didn't love them, which we know, but the fact is a lot of people love them too, me included. Right now, they are the main reason I watch this show. Their chemistry is amazing and they have me beleving they are totally and completely in love. So what if other characters think they are wrong for each other, that doesn't mean they are or that they won't get together, just that things won't be easy for them, which we never thought they would be.


*Chuckles* *Spazzes*
As for O'Mizzie (Goodness, I can't stand that...), I'm not surprised. I BET.


so happy that mer/der will stay together


oh yeah, I forgot to mention...
I'm banking on Callie or McSteamy moving in next door, because they can't live in a hotel forever.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
