t.r. knight is leaving 'grey's anatomy.' yawn. would it be asking too much to ask him to take ms. heigl along with him? honestly, i haven't seen 'grey's...' in a minute. i used to go all in for the show. i would actually sit through commercials and not dvr it. then, something happened. i'm not sure what it was. i just remember moments of being irritated with the characters like i actually knew them.
i think it was too much too soon.
the neuroses was too cute. it was a little too over-written. the show quickly went from being smart, to being a combination of 'e.r' and the last season of 'ally mcbeal.' i was waiting for the dancing baby. instead, we got chandra (love her) randomly singing 'god bless the child' and heigl staring at denny's inheritance check for way to long. there were to many "mcreferences." it also didn't help that i never liked the title character.
my mom checked out when heigl was allowed back to work. that didn't bother me as much, but i understood her issue. i just slowly lost interest, as the show became a little self-aware of its success. it also doesn't help to hear people whine about whining about wanting out of their contracts (heigl, knight...that means you). i mean, i'm all for getting out of a bad deal, but that wasn't the case here. heigl wants to be meg ryan (pre-surgery). knight wants to be, um, um...
I've worked as journalist, marketing executive, essayist, producer and flunkie. Former publications include Black Meetings & Tourism, Sister 2 Sister and most notably the National Enquirer. Yes, I went through trash, crashed weddings and on occasion, spotted UFO's.
Deciding to not permanently damage any chance of having the career that I moved to Los Angeles for, I left the tabloid for creative pursuits. We all know that you can't eat off of dreams; "Fame costs." So, while writing and attending American Film Institute, I held various positions from the mundane - answering phones; to the ridiculous - being Sheryl Lee Ralph's personal assistant.
I did the executive thing and ran an agency. It killed my creative spirit.
I decided to change my life. I packed up, sold my my excess junk on craigslist and drove back east to spend time with my father who has been ailing and to just take a breath.
Now, I am an English/Cinema studies professor. I'm getting to do something I love, at a place I love.
Life is good.
When I'm not working, writing and performing, I sleep.
