I don’t know much about what goes on at “Grey’s Anatomy.” But I’m continually impressed with star Ellen Pompeo’s ability to move on when another actor is fired or leaves in a contract dispute. She’s a survivor, that’s for sure. In an Instagram post she has no tears for Justin Chambers, a co-worker for 15 years. She doesn’t even refer to Chambers by name, just his character, Alex Karev, as if Karev were the real person. It’s very touching in a Hollywood way. Is there any Emmy for this? Patrick Dempsey, Eric Dane, Katherine Heigl would all like to present it. This really is a Shonda!
PS She must be getting tips in diplomacy from “cousin” Mike Pompeo!

Hi here I go again … Thank YOU! You are truly the best most passionate most loyal fans anyone could ever ask for. Because of you we got to make great tv… because of you we got to make television history! I say often life is hard and thank God it is because like I tell my kids… it shows us what we are made …of how strong we really are and let’s face it… without the lows there would be no dancing it out or celebrating this incredible experience we call life. Thanks to our national treasure @therealdebbieallen and the writers for giving Alex Karev the best send off. Thanks to @shondarhimes for creating the most amazing character. For me personally for Karev to go back to the beginning…. was the best possible storyline. It pays homage to those incredible first years and the incredible cast …that created a foundation so strong that the show is still standing. So let’s not be sad. As our fearless leader DA always says let’s PULL UP and celebrate the actors the writers and the fantastic crew who make this show come to life every week. No matter what the challenge or how tired we all are in the end… you keep us going…..That is worth dancing it out over! So much love and gratitude to you all. Xo E
