Kaley Cuoco Nixed From Grey's Anatomy Guest Role

by at . Comments

Last week, it was reported that the beautiful Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory was taking on a role as a guest star on the Grey's Anatomy Season 5 finale May 14.

However, just as soon as Cuoco's guest role was announced, she suddenly rescinded the chance to appear on the medical drama. Why the strange, abrupt bailing?

EW reports that the actress' rep claims a "publicity commitment" forced the star to back out of a top-secret appearance on Grey's Anatomy. But multiple sources say it was her Big Bang employer, CBS, that nixed the deal - clandestinely or otherwise.

CBS couldn't be reached for comment, but an insider explains, "They didn't want one of their biggest stars appearing on one of ABC's biggest shows." Makes sense.

As a result, Grey's Anatomy has instead tapped former OC starlet Shannon Lucio to fill Cuoco's shoes. Still unknown is who the character will be exactly.

I remember this episode ! It would've have been weird for Kaley to play the girl that George O'Malley saves from death (considering the role she plays in The Big Bang Theory, O'Malley would be her prince charming). But I'm glad they chose someone else because that actress was good .

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

The first time I kissed my wife, she wasn't my wife then, she was just this girl in a bar. But when we kissed, it was like, I gotta tell you, it was like I'd never kissed any other woman before. It was like my first kiss. The right kiss.

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
