12 Actors Who Treat Fellow Cast Members Like Trash
"Diva" Antics Maybe Cost Patrick Dempsey His "Grey's Anatomy" Gig
Patrick Dempsey'sGrey's Anatomycharacter Dr. Derek Shepherd has been missing from the show in recent months — his exit explained away in the mid-season finale as his taking a job at a hospital in Washington, D.C., womp, womp.Grey'screator Shonda Rhimes later toldEntertainment Weeklythat the move means " it's highly possible that we might not see Derek for a while." (And she'd know, because she writes the show.) She added that loyal viewers would see him again, but "[not] for a while."
However, Page Six now reports that this write-out was a suspension and that Patrick's "diva behavior" has caused a serious rift with Shonda. Interviews he'd given back in November, which seemed to confirm his plans to quit the show before his character's exit aired, are said to exacerbated tensions. Though he remains contracted through the end ofGrey's' 12th season, the "fleeting appearances" Derek has made in recent months are said to be emblematic of him being frozen out, like a bad wart basically — and that's a treatment that doesn't really require a hospital visit, you know? "The word on set," Page Six's sources whisper, "is that he isn't coming back full time."
When contacted for comment, Patrick's PR rep argued that the rumors are just that — and untrue ones too. So I guess keep an eye out for Derek after all, maybe? But just the one eye, and don't strain it either.
