[ # ] Ellen Pompeo says fired costars wouldn’t like the nastiness towards her
March 12th, 2018 under Shonda Rhimes

Last week, Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw were fired from Grey’s Anatomy, after being with the medical drama since 2009. As soon as word got out, fans of the show immediately blamed Ellen Pompeo, who negotiated a contract that makes her the highest paid actress on a primetime drama.

Pompeo took to Twitter and said, “We R grateful all of you are so passionate but if you knew these two women the way I know them they would not approve of all this nastiness. They both are super shiny happy people. I know you’re angry but you’re representation couldn’t be further from who these women actually are.” Fans were unhappy with that response because she did not even mention the fan favorites’ names. Once again the actress took to social media and tweeted, “Please don’t accuse me of being disrespectful it doesn’t matter what I say nothing I say is ok so I won’t say anything at all anymore.”

Did her salary cost the job of two of the longtime cast members, they will never tell us. But you have to assume that it did play a part. As a show ages, they cost more money. If you are going to give one star a huge raise, then you would think others will suffer for it. Plus, ABC made some costly mistakes this year. Renewing Modern Family last year for two more seasons and giving the cast a raise, but only to have it take a huge ratings hit. And two words that will definitely put a big dent in ABC’s piggy bank and they are American Idol.

Therefore, it is not completely her fault. But…

Since I have not watched Grey’s in ages, I hope both actress get to take advantage of the pilot season and get on show that doesn’t just dump them after 8 years of work.
