Guest Star News: Lauren Stamile, Josh Jackson

at . Comments

Kristin Veitch of E! Online reports that nurse Rose (Lauren Stamile) and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) are definitely heading in a romantic direction in upcoming episodes. Rumor has it that Rose/Lauren is sticking around until the last episode before the strike â€" Episode 11 â€" and she'll be an increasingly bigger part of the plot, as Derek even calls on Rose to help save a surgery.

For those of you rooting for Meredith and Derek, the good news is that this new "McThorny" romance with Lauren Stamile's character becomes a thorn in Mer's side â€" she may just realize how very badly she wants a McDreamy ending. The bad news? According to sources, she might realize that a little too late.

Lauren Stamile: A guest star and thorn in the side of Meredith Grey.

In other guest star news, the Writers Guild of America strike is apparently going to nix Joshua Jackson's appearance on Grey's Anatomy. Producers are hoping they can figure out another slot for the former Dawson's Creek star after the strike is put to rest, but that's contingent on his schedule. Stay tuned.

I hope i don't any get hate mail following my comment: But i really hope that Mer/Der don't get together. Yes, they have shared and still share something special but i just don't feel their connection. Most of the time, i find they them cheesy. I hope this nurse will brings something interesting on the plate for Dereck. Meredith needs to get some strengh and grow as a woman before she could even consider having a relationship let alone with Dereck. I hope they bring someone else for her with the same charms as Dereck but not him! sorry!


I am really sorry. I am a little obsessive. But I said I was goig to hate Rose the nurse, not Lauren Stamile. I mean, if Julia Roberts were to play Rose in GA, I would hate her too. But just on principle. I cannot say (eventhough I did say it) that I will hate her forever. I mean, I don´t know anything about her, and I´ve been thinking about this, and since I don´t really hate Lexie (after getting to know her a little) and after I ended up loving Addison, I can no longer say that. I mean, never say never, right? We get a little carried away sometimes, but once we give things some thought we realize things we didn´t see before. And I repeat, I hate Rose now just on principle. And I will hate her as long as she is the thorn in Meredith´s side. Sorry, I cannot help feeling that way.


I have not once said anything about the actress. I said she looked like a hooker, and it may have been harsh, so I take it back. She is beautiful, but I am sorry, that picture lacks class. I have nothing against posing naked or half naked or whatever, but I have seen better photos than this one. So if anybody felt that I was demoting women because of my comment about this photograph, I assure you all that was not my intention. So I apologize. I have nothing against Lauren Stamile, and maybe thousands of actors and actresses have billions of photos like this one going around, but that doesn´t mean anything. It doesn´t make it either right or wrong, and everyone is entitled to their opinion.


omgg im seriously gonna go crazy if meredith and derek are done. like SERIOUSLY GONNA. wow im kinda speechless right now


she's such a beautiful women. I just wish that in that picture she looked a little classier.


I want Derek and Meredith together as much as the rest of you, but let's remember that Rose is a fictional character on TV and keep the character separate from the actress. She's probably a lovely person - it's not her fault they hired her to be the thorn in poor Mer's side...and as far as her looking like a "whore" - what actress doesn't have a few pictures like that floating around? It's really disappointing that women attack each other like this. The use of the word "whore" is very demeaning to all of us! So give Lauren a break.


Stamile is a really nice person. I went to high school with her in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is very talented and is the farthest thing from a "wh0re"


What a shame about josua jackson!!


That's a very smart comment, die_lexie_grey! I agree with you - things are much more interesting when we don't hate the possible "love interests." I don't hate poor Rose - first of all, we don't even know what's going to happen with her storyline. Lexie should help us to remember that - with all of the hoopla and talk about Rose coming between Derek and Meredith. The same was true of Lexie, before she even came on the set. The only thing coming between Derek and Meredith is DEREK AND MEREDITH! As you say, they BOTH need to work on their issues. I think that it will happen, but it will take time. We can hate Shonda all we want, but she does keep us coming back for more, doesn't she?

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.
