Isaiah Washington: I Just Said I Wasn’t a Punk After Someone Spit in My Face

Posted by Bossip Staff

Isaiah Washington was on Larry King last night and cleared some things up:

Isaiah Washington blamed costar Patrick Dempsey’s repeated tardiness to the Grey’s Anatomy set for the blow-up that resulted in Washington using a homophobic slur.Interviewed on Larry King Live, Washington said he regretted not confronting Dempsey the first time he was late, so he challenged him the second time. But Dempsey wanted to delay the scene more to wait for Grey’s star Ellen Pompeo, who plays Dempsey’s love interest, before shooting began.

“I said I don’t need Ellen, I can act,” Washington told King. “And that was the moment that sent it into a different zone.” According to Washington, Dempey erupted. “He became unhinged, sprayed spittle in my face,” said Washington, in his first television interview about the controversy. “I’m asking him why is he screaming at me. … He just becomes irate.”

That’s when Washington said “a lot of things I’m not really proud of.”

“I said several bad words,” he recalled, quoting himself as telling Dempsey: “There’s no way you’re going to treat me like the B-word, the P-word or the F-word.”

He said that the “F-word” was not meant as an anti-gay slur, but implied “somebody who is being weak.” Continue »

Isaiah Washington: I’m a 6-foot-1, Black Man with Dark skin and Who Doesn’t go around saying ‘Yessah, Massa Sir’

Posted by Bossip Staff

Some recent quotes by Isaiah Washington to Newsweek Magazine:

“Well, it didn’t help me on the set that I was a black man who wasn’t a mush-mouth Negro walking around with his head in his hands all the time. I didn’t speak like I’d just left the plantation and that can be a problem for people sometime,” he says. “I had a person in human resources tell me after this thing played out that ‘some people’ were afraid of me around the studio. I asked her why, because I’m a 6-foot-1, black man with dark skin and who doesn’t go around saying ‘Yessah, massa sir’ and ‘No sir, massa’ to everyone? It’s nuts when your presence alone can just scare people, and that made me a prime candidate to take the heat in a dysfunctional family.’’

“My mistake was believing that I would get the support from my network and all of my cast mates across the board. My mistake was believing I could correct a wrong with honesty and sincerity. My mistake was thinking black people get second chances,” he says. “I was wrong on all fronts.” Continue »

Hollyweird Wants Isaiah Back

Hollyweird via NBC wants Isaiah Washington back in the mix:

Recently dismissed “Grey’s Anatomy” co-star Isaiah Washington is in discussions with NBC about a deal, sources said. It was not clear whether NBC is interested in bringing Washington onto an existing series or casting him in a new project. Washington alluded to his conversations with NBC in his first interview after he was fired from “Grey’s” on June 7 because of fallout from the controversy surrounding his reported use of anti-gay slur in a reference to fellow cast member T.R. Knight.

The actor told Entertainment Weekly he and his agent “are sorting through a ton of offers in both film and TV.” “There is one network in particular that’s very interested, but I don’t want to say anything specific until it’s a done deal,” he said. Washington indeed had preliminary conversations with the network Continue »

Quote of the Day: Isaiah Washington

isaiahwashington811.jpg

Isaiah Washington says they fired the wrong guy and is considering a lawsuit:

“I have to clear my name,” a determined Washington told the Houston Chronicle in a telephone interview from the set of his new movie, The Least of These. “I’ll start from the beginning. I’m telling everything. So here’s the truth.” Washington said Knight, who plays Dr. George O’Malley, stirred up the notion that the slur was targeted at him and created a negative work environment. Washington also alleged that Knight likely wanted a salary increase and a more substantive role for his character. Knight, who acknowledged that he was gay after the incident, told Ellen DeGeneres in January that Washington used the slur against him and that “everyone (on the set) heard it.”

“That’s a lie,” Washington said. “I used the word during a disagreement with Patrick. I apologized for that. We shook hands and went back to work.”

He said he is considering a lawsuit. “My livelihood, my honor and dignity and my name have been so challenged.”Washington said his firing was a big disappointment. “I was not fired for making homophobic slurs,” he said. “I did everything I said I would do. I offered to go to counseling, to do a public service announcement. I wanted everyone to know I was remorseful.”

Quote of The Day: Isaiah Washington

Isaiah Washington talking to EW about getting his walking papers last week:

“I can only apologize so many times,” he says. “I can only accept so much responsibility. All the players involved have taken care of what we needed to take care of in-house – and the media took it in a different direction. I hope that everyone is happy for the outcome for Isaiah, but Isaiah will go on and do what I love to do……I did everything that the producers and the network asked me to do. I came back under great duress and stress, and thought I was doing the job I was hired to do……If Shonda calls me and says, ‘Look we want you to do something for Grey’s Anatomy,’ I probably would not hesitate. But I don’t really see that happening.”

Why did “they” make him jump through all those hoops and then “make Shonda” fire him at the end. “Playing with my money is like playing with my emotions”. Well, back to the FUBU BET movies you go.

Who Had His Back?????

Posted by Bossip Staff

Isaiah Washington was officially fired today and ABC used Grey’s creator Shonda Rimes to make the call. All that pandering and public service announcements for nothing. Isaiah Washington released the following statement:

“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

What a dummy, for a guy who is accused of having anger problems and being insensitive, he starts his official statement with he is “mad as hell”. SMH.

Well, f*ck with the gay mafia in Hollyweird, back to the low budget BET movies you go.

Isaiah Washington is still doing his “I am not a gay-hater” press tour and recently completed a public service announcement and reference his calling Grey’s cast member a fa*got in the message. He says words like this sends a message of “hate”. Rumors are still swirling in Hollyweird that Isaiah is about to officially receive his walking papers any day.

Damn, he said sorry, either fire him or someone tell him to stop going around hoe-ing to save his job. Some Tracey Edmonds FUBU “BET Special” movies may hire him, even if they are paying Checkers burger prices. Only going back to BET movies will he learn to keep his mouth shut.
