Personal Quote:

[re troubles with Grey's Anatomy (2005) cast where she had to learn...] how to be a boss and a leader versus somebody who was like, 'Holy crap, I get to write a show every week.' But could I have lived without that lesson? Absolutely. See more »

Trivia:

On the first day in September 2001 that she moved into a rental house in Vermont as a quiet place to finish a movie script, the World Trade Center was attacked, which prompted Rhimes to reassess her future and her goals. She decided her top priority was to adopt a child and nine months later she did, with daughter Harper, and became a single mother. Emerson followed in 2012. See more »
