Here is more information and interviews from this event. I am happy to see cast members standing up for Isaiah. It is long past time. And it is nice to hear a cast member say that the writers should start listening to the fans about Meredith and Derek. 'Grey's Anatomy' stars gather for homeless charity By William Keck, USA TODAYPACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. â€" The dreamy, steamy docs of Grey's Anatomy, on hiatus for the summer, reunited Saturday night at a private mansion for charity. After a season with as much drama off screen as on, there was much to discuss."This is the first we're all seeing each other again," said Justin Chambers (Alex), who came with wife Keisha. Excited to see co-star T.R. Knight (George), Ellen Pompeo (Meredith) embraced him and asked, "What happened to your blue hair?" "It was red," corrected Knight, who recently dyed his hair. "He's so fun, such a crazy personality," said Pompeo, escorted by fiancÃ© Christopher Ivery. With Pompeo, Katherine Heigl (Izzie) and now Kate Walsh (Addison) all engaged, might they have a triple ceremony? "No!" said Pompeo. "There will not be a Big Three anything. My wedding will be very small." Eric Dane (Mark) and his wife, Rebecca Gayheart, were the evening's hosts for the sixth annual Butterfly Ball, raising funds for Chrysalis, an organization that helps L.A.'s homeless find jobs. Dane's best friend, Balthazar Getty (Brothers & Sisters), attended with his very pregnant wife, Rosetta, who announced that the couple is expecting twin girls in the fall. Sara Ramirez (Callie) found it "interesting" that Grey's writers chose to end the season by leaving unclear the fate of Knight and Isaiah Washington (Burke) â€" the actors at the center of a highly publicized feud after Washington called Knight a homophobic slur. "That's why we're talking about it," she said of the cliffhanger. "I think it's cute," agreed James Pickens Jr. (Richard). "It gives folks something to look forward to when the new season starts." Less amused was Knight, who has still has not been informed of his future with the show. "It's all kind of in flux right now," he said. But Chambers thinks "the show would be crazy for them not to return. We need them." Washington was unable to attend the ball because he is preparing for a trip to Africa to help establish a hospital, said Pickens. Pickens recently caught the public service announcement Washington shot for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and said, "I applaud him. It's a step in the right direction. I'm one of his biggest fans, and he's a dear friend of mine. He did what he felt was necessary to do." "People make mistakes, and Isaiah's doing the right thing in changing that," agreed castmate Patrick Dempsey (Derek). "It's a lot of hard work, an uphill struggle for him. And you have to support him. You have to give him a lot of love and support and forgiveness." Knight has not yet seen the PSA and was resistant to offer his opinion, saying only, "Gray matter is going to start seeping out of my brain, no pun intended." On screen, Dempsey and Pompeo are also hoping for harmony for their on-again, off-again characters. "I would love for Derek and Meredith to have a healthy relationship," said Dempsey. "It got a little too depressing last year, and I think the writers need to lighten up and get back to the first season. That's what people want to see, and we really need to listen to the fans." Pompeo agreed, noting, "My boyfriend and I are very happy and we still manage to be dramatic every day. There's never a shortage of things to talk about. I don't think you need sadness to have drama." But Chambers, who is hoping for an Alex/Izzie reunion come fall, wasn't so sure. "How would that work?" he asked. "It would be a boring show if everyone was happy."
Could anything possibly be worse than this past season?
George: Sitting here is a fire hazard. Cristina: Maybe if there's a fire, people will trip over us and break their bones and break open their head and have major brain damage and need surgery. Izzie: Leave it to Cristina to make everything surgical.
THAT MOVIE WAS AMAZING
George[thinking to himself]: Do i really smell that bad?
Cristina: "Damn! You mean we have an entire day OFF after we finish our shifts? What will we do without surgeries?"Everyone else's thoughts: "You want NO days off Cristina? Seriously?"
George: I could totally be Mr. Fantastic. Izzie: Well, I already feel like the Invisble Woman. Alex: Flame on! Cristina: Wonder Woman still kicks ass.
Alex: The itsy, bitsy spider went up the water spout, out came the rain and washed the spider out, out came the sun and dried up all the rain...Cristina: And Alex was asked to never sing that song again....
George: Why did the chief dye his hair black and get it curled? Cristina: To turn me on!
Cristina: Why is Meredith scrubbing in with McSteamy again? Alex: Haven't you heard? She slept with him last night after they met at the bar
