Could Mer and Der be on the road to a huge breakup?
When we left the couple in the last Grey's Anatomy finale, Meredith finally stood up for herself, telling Derek that she doesn’t want to move to Washington, D.C.—where he had been offered a full-time position by Potus. (Not Scandal’s Fitz, but we can still dream!)
And in season 11—being dubbed “The Year of Meredith”—the stalwart doc will no longer take a backseat to her husband’s career, which may cause strife in their relationship. However, executive producer Shonda Rhimes promises that this »

When we first saw Rihanna in this slouchy grey look we thought, Why is Rihanna wearing such a casual suit? Then we honed in on the drawstring pants and blousy top and thought, Why is Rihanna wearing such formal scrubs? Our question should probably be, Why did anyone design such boardroom-style ER gear? Though we wouldn't mind seeing some of the hotties of Grey's Anatomy rocking this style with a deep V-neck on top, of course. But the look is way too weird for the "Stay" singer. Not only are the roomy pants and top unflattering, but flat grey makes this Barbadian beauty look like she's headed to court or a daytime memorial service. So yes, uniforms can be super-hot—but that's »

Geena Davis will be joining the cast of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy in a guest arc for the show’s upcoming 11th season.
Davis will guest star on Grey’s Anatomy as a surgeon hitting the operating rooms of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, reported Variety. Details are scarce on Davis’ character, but the actress’s guest role is purported to be a major one.
Davis, who won an Oscar for her turn in The Accidental Tourist and received a nod for starring in 1991’s Thelma & Louise, last appeared in Lake Bell’s comedy In a World… (2013). Her last major role was on TV in political drama Commander in Chief in which she starred as President Mackenzie Allen.
In addition to Davis, Grey’s Anatomy fans can also expect to see Kate Burton. Though her character Dr. Ellis Grey died earlier on the »
Geena Davis is going to be scrubbing in at Grey-Sloan Memorial! The Oscar winner has booked a major guest arc on the upcoming 11th season of Grey's Anatomy, the actress' rep and ABC confirmed Friday to E! News. While she starred in the 2012 A&E miniseries Coma, a remake of the chilling 1978 movie of the same name, this marks Davis' return to a network series since she starred on the well-received yet short-lived Commander in Chief. We knew that Shonda Rhimes would know how to shake things up now that Sandra Oh has left the building! Davis will play—surprise, surprise—a surgeon on the still-chugging medical drama, but no other details were forthcoming. The »
Katherine Heigl is talking priorities.
Actress Katherine Heigl will be making a comeback on television, but her return is not complete without an explanation as to why she left in the first place.
"We had big dreams of expanding our family, moving to the mountains and having a quieter life. Utah is spectacularly beautiful, the people are wonderful and kind, it's an easy commute from L.A. — and there's no traffic!"
Katherine left Grey's in 2010, but she continued to star in movies.
In the same year, after three months of long workdays on a movie shoot in Atlanta for Life As We Know It, she told Good Housekeeping, "I would come home angry and frustrated that I'd missed everything with my kid that day. I didn't »
Katherine Heigl is on Good Housekeeping 's September cover, and inside the issue she reflects on why she quit Grey's Anatomy back in 2010. She and husband Josh Kelley had just adopted daughter Naleigh, now 5, the year prior, and soon after she arrived, Heigl was working on a movie shoot. "I would come home angry and frustrated that I'd missed everything with my kid that day," she says. "I didn't get to wake her up from her nap, or do bath time or bedtime. I'd have to sneak into her room and kiss her when she was sleeping, hoping »

Early in the new Cinemax drama "The Knick," Dr. John Thackery boasts of "the astonishing modern world in which we live," insisting that "We now live in a time of endless possibility. More has been learned about the human body in the last five years than in the previous 500." What is such an astonishing time to him is a very quaint one for us, since "The Knick" (it premieres Friday at 10) takes place in Manhattan in the year 1900. Viewed through a modern lens, Thackery's surgical techniques seem primitive, even barbarous, but in the context of his time — when a procedure we take for granted like an appendectomy is still considered dangerous and experimental — he and his colleagues are miracle workers. "The Knick" arrives in an era where the possibilities for television drama are as limitless as they were for medicine in 1900. It's a period where a Matthew McConaughey can commit »

Katherine Heigl faced an ugly truth when she became a mother in 2009. A series regular on Grey's Anatomy at the time, the actress found it difficult to maintain any kind of work-life balance, and soon grew resentful of her hectic schedule. "I would come home angry and frustrated that I'd missed everything with my kid that day," Heigl, 35, told Good Housekeeping of being a working mom after she and husband Josh Kelley adopted daughter Naleigh, now 5. "I didn't get to wake her up from [...] »
As previously reported, TV Guide recently served up their latest spoiler chat session and dished out new "Grey's Anatomy" season 11 spoilers in regards to Alex's recent issues. It turns out that we'll see him really struggle with the decision he made to edge Bailey out, and will do some soul-searching as well. In their spoiler chat report, they stated: "Although Shonda Rhimes said Alex won't back down from becoming a board member, he will struggle with the decision to edge Bailey out. In fact, he'll have to do some major soul-searching. "His responsibilities and who he's becoming because Cristina has left him these shares and a seat on a board — does he want that?" she says. "Is that what he's looking for? Did he want the money grab that Dr. Butthole provided him or does he want to be the guy who has a seat on the board? That is »
As previously reported, TV Guide delivered their new Mega Buzz, spoiler chat session and revealed some extreme drama that will take place between Meredith and Derek in the upcoming Grey's Anatomy season 11. It turns out that we'll see Derek think his career is more important than Meredith's, which she definitely won't agree with, and she will eventually stand up for herself. In their spoiler chat report, they stated: " In case you haven't heard, it's the season of Meredith! Unfortunately, that's not necessarily a good thing, since it means more drama ahead for she and Derek. "He thinks his career is more important than hers," executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells me. "She has kids and a husband and he has a big career and she has ambition. Suddenly, she's found herself in the backseat." Don't worry, I hear it won't be long before she stands up for herself!" Season 11 is due to debut on Thursday night, »
