Don’t mess with Shonda Rhimes because she will have no problem publicly calling you out! Rhimes sat down for an interview with The Hollywood Reporter and slammed a her former Grey’s Anatomy star, a reportedly Katherine Heigl. If you don’t remember Heigl dissed the show that made her a star in 2007 and then withdrew from an Emmy consideration, she stayed on the show a few more years but eventually left in 2010. “There are no Heigls in this situation,” when Rhimes talks about her Scandal cast, then choosing her words carefully She adds she has a “no assholes” policy: “I don’t put up with bullshit or nasty people. I don’t have time for it.”
I love it. She could have just talked about a difficult actress on her set, but instead she put it all on the table with names and everything! I love the fierceness! Rhimes also touched on that NYTimes article branding her an “romantic” yet “angry black woman”…yup makes no sense! “Some really amazing articles were written that had the conversation that I’ve been trying to have for a very long time, which, coming from me, makes me sound like I’m just, ‘Rrrraw!’. In this world in which we all feel we’re so full of gender equality and we’re a postracial [society] and Obama is president, it’s a very good reminder to see the casual racial bias and odd misogyny from a woman written in a paper that we all think of as being so liberal.”
Rhimes also runs Scandal and How to get away with murder.
I still don’t get why she’s considered angry…
