Shonda Rhimes Distances Herself From the Word "Va-jay-jay"

In 2006, the term "va-jay-jay" became a revelation for women looking for a humorous, slightly-urban way to refer to their downstairs lady-parts. It began during the second season of 'Grey's Anatomy,' when Miranda Bailey went into labor and berated an intern, "Stop looking at my va-jay-jay."

Oprah Winfrey
caught wind of it and suddenly even Midwestern housewives were whispering "va-jay-jay" to their friends with a smirk.

Shonda Rhimes, creator of 'Grey's Anatomy' and "va-jay-jay," is now trying to curb its usage with her Twitter page. Referring to a headline on the September cover of 'Cosmo,' she tweeted, "Eww. This is taking my word a little 2 far."

Mark this date in history pop-historians as the day va-jay-jay died, or at least overextended itself. And all it took is the headline, "Untamed Va-jay-jays, Guess What Sexy Style is Back."

We are only guessing, but are they referring to Sasha Grey's untamed hair, uh, down there on 'Entourage'? Let the "Sasha Grey's Anatomy" jokes begin.

She did not invent that word, no matter how much she might like to take credit for it. Giving it a national stage? Sure, she can claim that. But invention? No dice.

First entry, 2004. You can't alter timestamps or back date on urban dictionary. Season Two of Gray's Anatomy was from 2005 - 2006.
