Isaiah Washington to Appear on Larry King; Gives Revealing Interview to Gay Blogger

by at . Comments
Isaiah Washington Strikes BackThat's right, even more news about Isaiah Washington.

It's not that we wish to continue discussing the firing of Isaiah Washington ad nauseam. But new developments continue to arise, and the drama seems to be becoming stranger by the day.

That said, what we try to do is present all the facts we come across, as they are presented to us, and let readers decide for themselves.

Michael Ausiello from TV Guide reports that the former Grey's Anatomy star will sit down for a discussion with Larry King on CNN's Larry King Live on Monday, July 2.

This will be the actor's first TV interview since being fired. In an attempt to tell his side of the story, expect the interview to cover the incidents with T.R. Knight and Patrick Dempsey, the Golden Globes, the PSA, his firing, a potential law suit against ABC, and the media frenzy.

Isaiah Washington now claims that Patrick Dempsey agrees with the fact that T.R. Knight should have been fired. In a recent interview with gay rights activist/BET host Keith Boykin, the actor said:

"I know Patrick Dempsey has supported me by stating that if there is anyone that needs to be fired, it is T.R. Knight, because he has created such a negative environment on the set."

Follow this link to read Boykin's interview with Washington. Then come back and tell us what you think about his remarks.

being gay is not a minority. they don't get the equal rights as if they were black,white,asian,native american,or hispanic. they have no rights. they can be nasty if that's what they want, but they don't have the legal RIGHT to be nasty. they want the rights so bad, but they will never get the right, no matter what they do or say. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN! i don't hate gays. i hate what they do.

This is for Delisa, who responed to my comment on the 27th. You are an IDIOT. I do believe that the last white man that used the term "nappy headed hoes" did loose his job (may I mention that term was also used to describe several white women on that team, it should have been looked at degrading to all women not just to black women), and there was a big in your words "hoop dee doo". I can't believe that now Isiaih is trying to use the race card as the reason he was fired. It would matter if he was white with freakin purple poka-dots what he said was wrong. And I guaruntee you that if Patrick or T.R. has referred to him as a stupid nigger (since you obviously take and offense to me abbrivating it) or a nappy headed hoe that there would be no long drawn out, film a PSA and it wil all go way solution to the problem, he would have been fired on the spot. I believe that all minorites should be treated equally, but I have problem when they feel they should be treated better and they should be able to get away with anything, and of course anytime something doesn't go your way let's pull the race card.

SEROIUSLY?! god i can't believe that about Dempsey saying Knight should be fired. what a prick. it's not knight's fault he's gay and it's also not his fault that washington is an ignorant ass.

I didn't really mean to say that I believe everything TR says or that he didn't make a big deal about it. Obviously, he did, when it happened and sometime after it happened. But now that's he's fired, he's changed his story from this rehab and psa stuff is for the betterment of me, to i did this for my job. idk. This stuff is crazy and whatever.....I don't really feel the want anymore to discuss their problems....which is actually very contradictory to my whole defense of what i said earlier.........whatever

PD's comments on TwoP are in the forums, under Grey Matter / Patrick Dempsey. Probably a few pages back by now. I tried to post a link, but I don't think it worked...

ok. I hate reading "so and so should be fired". None of us have any idea what goes on in reality on the set... but if one more person is fired... I will stop watching the show.
His story sounds so far fetched though... I feel he has done a discredit to himself by mentioning so many peoples names... claiming TR wanted the two male leads fired... doubt that sorry!! There wld be no show to watch...
I dunno... he seems a bit insane.

PD said that he wished IW well and that everyone who was coming back to the set deserved to be back, something like that anyway, and no, TR did not tell everyone with a mic or a pen, he told people magazine and said it on the ellen show, that was it, and how d'you know its not true? just because IW said so? no one will ever know what happened onset that day,so theres no point in passing judgements, but what IW is saying about TR now, that hes forcing the writers and producers hands to up his storylines(which isnt true btw, cause shonda said herself that the george/izzie storyline was potential from the start of the show, i mean seriously, he doesnt have that sort of power, lol) and that they fired the wrong guy is well, wrong, and TR is doing the right thing by staying quiet, IW needs to be a professional in this and i hope he can move on

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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
