Grey's Anatomy Cast Discusses Finale Shockers

at . Comments

Romance â€" both onscreen and off â€" was the topic of the day at the Chrysalis Ball, held Saturday night at a private estate in Brentwood, Calif.

The hosts: Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart.

Dane's character, Mark Sloan, had a rough season as far as his love life goes. But as far as his own marriage to Gayheart goes, he couldn't be happier:

"It is great. I don't know how I got so lucky," he said.

Eric Dane added that he and Gayheart are "working on" kids.

Several Private Practice stars â€" Kate Walsh and Tim Daly included â€" as well as other stars (like Eva Mendes, pictured) were there to support Dane and Gayheart.

Among the Grey's Anatomy contingent was Katherine Heigl, who momentarily misplaced her spouse, Josh Kelley, and began joking that married life is "Great ... except that I've lost my husband, so it could be over now, I guess!"

Heigl is managing to juggle working on a hit show and a busy movie schedule (she is now filming The Ugly Truth): "It's a real blessing because I love both and so I can do them both and not be completely ready to blow my brains out."

T.R. Knight and boyfriend Mark Cornelsen were all smiles, saying that their relationship is "very good, so far," but even with same-sex marriage now legal in California, they're not about to tie the knot anytime soon.

As far as romance on Grey's Anatomy, Knight was as surprised as anyone by George's kiss with Lexie at the end of the May season finale.

"What was up with that?" he asked.

T.R. Knight has no idea if a bona fide romance will follow, but adds that "I love working with Chyler Leigh. She's really funny and it's really fun to work with her. I like the dorky actor 'craft' part of it, where you discuss the scene and so does she. She's a cool person."

Knight also seemed confused about the the controversial â€" and now ended â€" affair between George and Izzie, saying, "It kind of died quickly, didn't it? They had them fall in love really quickly and then tore them apart really quickly. It just seemed to be such a weird, fast event."

James Pickens was delighted to be reunited in the Grey's Anatomy finale with his TV wife, Adele, played by Loretta Devine.

"Yeah, we got him some action for a change," he said.

"He got a chance to get some, so that's all good!"

Pickens joked that his character's marital status depends on the availability of Devine, who also stars in Eli Stone.

As for what's going on next season, Pickens said, "I think we're doing 26 episodes. The network's got to get back what they lost during the strike."

Pickens is off to D.C. for a jazz festival and Heigl planned to hit Cabo before the Grey's Anatomy cast returns for their first table read June 19.

Wallie: I didn't like Erica at first either but when she started hanging with Callie I started to warm up to her and then loved her character, she's strong independent and a brilliant surgeon. When a person is that cocky and confident its just human nature to be turned off from them. I understand why you might not like her I see your point and especially the way she treats Yang because of Burke it's horrible but we can't say that Yang is a saint and she deserves better. Let me remind you that Yang treated Lexie like crap too she never warmed up to helping her until the chief talked to hahn about the way shes treating her instead of teaching her. I'm a christina fan b4 Erica fan. I'm just saying look at the situations.


I love this show. I miss Burke and Addison and do not like Hahn. They need to do something drastic to make her tolerable. She would not in real life be able to freeze Yang out of surgeries. I was so glad Richard let her have it at the end of the finale. She took it like a baby,too. I think George is a great character,too. And a great actor. He gets ignored and Katherine Heigl gets a little too much hype,in my opinion.


As far as I can see everyone misses Burke and Addison, so do I but as much as I loved Burke's character he did deserve to get fired for calling TR knight (george) a faggot. I also hate that addison left but she got private practice as a spin off show...As for the cast of Grey's now it's a filled with talented actor and actresses..Sure they made Callie and Erica have a little romance thing going on but so what it makes the show interested..Thats the reason why we started watching in the first place cause it was different from the other shows..It's a revolutionary show with different ethnic groups along with the controversial theme of sexuality. The show is real and it makes it easier to relate to it,,,, so lets not forget thats why we all watch..


I am really excited about this coming season it should be great. I am also excited about getting the season 4 dvd I can't wait to see the speacial features and on another note don't get too upset at cynthis she isjust expressing her thoughts. what she feels that is all. we may have different opinions as well so cut her some slack after all this is a free country right?


George to me is the strongest link of the show, not the weakest, he leaves, I do too. Keep your homophobe remarks to yourself.


i agree ^^^^^^^^^^ 100% with you ms dempsey


keep your stupid opinion to your self just because you dont like it you dont have to ruin everybody elses spirits of the show


The First 3 Seasons of Grey's Anatomy were
SUPERB ! High Caliber !
It was it seems like it has been cut with lots of buffer, stepped on...and dimished brilliance...
Amy Madigan is fantastic !
Burke & Addison ...missed sorely...If they were going to change Grey's Anatomy to Gay's Anatomy, would have been nice to see Addison & Izzie or Sloan & Sheppard.
Perhaps losing the weakest link George O'Malley would strenghthen the Integrity of the Show & it would Shine again.
I used to look so forward to it sort of reminds me of high school.


well at least they are starting back up soon. that means more spoilers for next season


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
