Ellen Pompeo Says She'll Stay on 'Grey's Anatomy' if She's Wanted

Ellen PompeoIt seems as though behind-the-scenes contract wrangling is continuing to dog ABC medical drama 'Grey's Anatomy.'

Earlier this summer Patrick Dempsey seemed confused as to whether McDreamy's coming or going, and now Ellen Pompeo says she could be persuaded to stay on after the upcoming season 8.

Pompeo told TV Guide that she's open to the idea of continuing to play Meredith, but that her contract will soon expire and no one's actually asked her to stay on. "I would love the opportunity to discuss it," she says.

"I would never turn up my nose at 'Grey's.' ... If I hear from the fans that they want us to keep going, then I would continue because we owe them everything."

Brian Regan Can't Match the Elegance of Ellen Pompeo's Words on 'Marriage Ref' (VIDEO)

Ellen Pompeo, Brian Regan & Kathy Griffin, 'The Marriage Ref'Ellen Pompeo may be the most eloquent guest yet on 'The Marriage Ref' (Sun., 10PM ET on NBC). The issue at the heart of this couple's marriage had to do with the wife's very expensive little hobby.

She liked to build and furnish lavish dollhouses, but the cost of the furniture accessories was almost the same as buying the same thing at full-size. The wife says other hobbies are expensive too, but this is the one that makes her happy. The husband's simply balking at the price.

Pompeo sided with the wife, but managed to do it so masterfully that the husband was nodding and hanging on her every word as well.

'Grey's Anatomy' - 'Valentine's Day Massacre' Recap

Lexie and Jackson on Grey's
(S06E14) It's Valentine's Day on 'Grey's Anatomy' and to celebrate, we have a restaurant roof collapse. The show claims to have the biggest surgery ever, which turns out to be an arm reattachment, with the arm temporarily being attached to a leg. While it's interesting and I'm sure a rare surgery, it still doesn't compare to separating conjoined twins or being impaled to a car in my book.

While everyone struggles with the multiple surgeries, miraculously, both Arizona and Callie have time to dilly-dally. Arizona tries her hand in playing Cupid on Valentine's, pairing up Bailey with Dr. Warren. Callie gets to check up on Sloan with her free time. What happened to the Callie who used to snap arms back into place?

Ellen Pompeo Gets a Panda Scare on 'Ellen' (VIDEO)

Ellen DeGeneres, Ellen Pompeo, PandaApparently, Ellen DeGeneres has been on a scare tangent. Ellen Pompeo was on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated) today, and the two Ellens played a little one-on-one game of scary things.

They named off the usual stuff – bats, spiders, snakes, etc. – until Ellen DeGeneres called out "a panda bear dressed like a doctor!" And Ellen Pompeo turned around to see that very thing stalking her. She was just waiting for something to happen!

You know, panda bears, in general, aren't all that scary. In fact, they're usually downright cute. But this one? Not so much. It was like a germy, demented doctor you'd never find on 'Grey's Anatomy.' On second thought, there's probably a few of those on that show. But not Ellen Pompeo -- she's adorable.

Watch the video after the jump.

Review: Grey's Anatomy - Holidaze

by Michael Pascua, posted Nov 20th 2009 3:20AM
The Seattle Grace family celebrates Christmas
(S06E10) In the last episode of 2009, Grey's Anatomy combines Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years all in one eventful episode. I'm still not in the holiday mood, but the show got me there, except for the fact that they played Christmas music on New Years. Christmas music should stay between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

What happened to Alex in this episode? This would probably be the hardest time for a husband who doesn't have his wife for their first Christmas together. Wasn't he invited to Christmas Dinner? At least Meredith could have mentioned that he was stuck at work?

Review: Grey's Anatomy - New History

Mark and the new doctor
(S06E09) "According to Google, you don't exist" - Cristina Yang

We've reached a maximum capacity on Grey's Anatomy where all the billed characters showed up for a few seconds on the show then disappeared; even the bartender showed up. This left a lot of characters segregated to the side. Meredith returned and was out of the loop for most of the episode, stuck in a room practicing her craft on a plastic dummy.

We also found the return of Izzie and the introduction of a new cardio doctor, Dr. Teddy Altman. While I grew to like Teddy, I really wished that Izzie would just go home and never come back.

Review: Grey's Anatomy - Give Peace a Chance

by Michael Pascua, posted Oct 30th 2009 3:00AM
The doctors of Seattle Grace work on a surgery.
(S06E07) This week's episode of Grey's Anatomy focused on Derek and evolved the character as someone that's not just McDreamy. The show should start with Patrick Dempsey talking more often. I didn't realize how mellow his voice was, though saying the words "calm," "quiet," and "peace" automatically sound calming. I hope he narrates a Disney movie soon.

If the show continues to be strong with character driven development per episode, I suggest keeping Meredith bed ridden. She's already forgiven her father and has strengthened her relationship with her sister. Let's evolve the rest of the one-dimensional characters while she stays in bed.

Grey's Anatomy: Tainted Obligation

The cast of Greys surround Thatcher
(S06E04) I love how Grey's Anatomy can bounce between serious and hysterical moments. Old people wanting penile implants, bears attacking a groggy Alex, and a witty jab at CSI in the first ten minutes of the show counterbalanced with Mercy West drama, Christina being ignored, and Lexie's father arriving at the hospital hacking blood.

One interesting point that clears up one question is how much the residents make. According to Izzie, she and Alex barely make $30K a year. I'm not sure if that's combined or individual, but it makes me solidify why a) Lexie lives with Mark and b) Christina and Callie are still roommates.

Jane After Dark: Grey's Anatomy season five; Private Practice season two

by Jane Boursaw, posted Oct 4th 2009 10:00AM
Grey's Anatomy, season five dvdWith Grey's Anatomy and its spin-off Private Practice starting new seasons, I decided to refresh my brain with the previous seasons of these two ABC shows. So this week's Jane After Dark was all about the dreamy doctors.

I've been on board with Private Practice since the beginning, and was especially interested to see what happened with Violet and her baby in the season three premiere. Happy ending there, thank goodness! And while Grey's Anatomy has certainly ebbed and flowed since it began in 2005, I've stuck with it because I've grown to love the dysfunctional characters with all their baggage. It makes my life seem just that much better.

Grey's Anatomy, Season Five

There were parts of this season that drove me a little nuts, like Izzie having "mind-boggling sex" with dead Denny. That whole storyline made me want to jump off a roof, but there were plenty of highlights to the season, as well...

Grey's Anatomy: I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watchin' Me

A lighthearted moment at Grey's Anatomy.
(S06E03) The paranoia kicked in on Grey's Anatomy with the fears of merging with Mercy West. Everyone was on pins and needles wondering whether or not they would get cut. Tonight's episode focused mostly on Lexie and Christina's reactions on how to guarantee themselves positions in Seattle Grace. I still don't see why they were worried because they are good at what they do and even if they got cut, they could easily find jobs.

We also see how much of a loving husband Alex is, being concerned for his wife's health and making sure that she takes her medications.

Grey's Anatomy: Good Mourning / Goodbye (season premiere)

The Grey's Anatomy universe stops for George O'Malley
(S06E01,S06E02) Every end of a television season, I ask myself, "Why do I keep watching Grey's Anatomy?" Then I realized why; I love Callie. Sure, she came into the show in the second season and isn't an "original" character, but she's become what I consider the most genuine character.

Then they start the show with "Wade in the Water?" I'm automatically an emotional wreck for two hours. Instead of a regular episodic format, the premiere episodes shifted to a timeline (Day One, Seven, Ten, Thirteen, and so on). I guess they got the memo that FlashForward was on before them.

Gearing up for Grey's Anatomy season six

by Michael Pascua, posted Aug 25th 2009 11:26AM
A funeral at Grey's perhaps?With a month to go, the news about T.R. Knight leaving Grey's Anatomy finally comes to the forefront with one of the first previews for the sixth season. The preview spends the first 15 seconds at the end of season five, so fans only get 15 juicy seconds of new clips.

The clip is nothing out of the ordinary for Grey's viewers: flashes of white, screaming people's names, faces of panic and running around. The big fans can dissect each scene and realize that there isn't much to analyze.

Here's hoping that the preview actually takes place in the first ten minutes of the show. If I get a lot of unnecessary George flashback for the first hour, I will have to find something to gag myself with.
