Shonda Rhimes Admits To Killing Off Character Of The Actor She Didn't Like

Don't mess with this writer or she'll write you out.

Shonda Rhimes, the genius behind fan favorites ABC's Grey's Anatomy and Scandal revealed some interesting news. She's been writing for years and every once in a while, Rhimes stirs some slight controversies. She's the first person fans blame if something horrible happens to their favorite character however Rhimes usually doesn't make any public statements about why she writes certain characters out, until now.
During an interview with Comedy Central's The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore, he asked Rhimes directly, "Have you ever killed off a character because you didn't like the actor? And extra bonus points, who was it? Don't even think about lying."
She nonchalantly responded with, "Yes, and I'm not naming names."
It's a huge truth bomb but she doesn't seem to mind sharing. Last year, Rhimes took major heat for eliminating Patrick Dempsey's character, Derek, in Grey's Anatomy. Though she originally took a silent stance on her choice, she ultimately blamed Dempsey. She claimed that due to his struggle with drugs, especially cocaine, she had no other choice but to let him go.
"We had a lot of discussions about it," she explained. "It wasn't easy or fun, it is never easy or fun. We've been working really hard for a long time together. We're family. Those choices and those decisions are never easy for any of us."
However, just because he left for drug addiction doesn't mean that Rhimes disliked Dempsey as an actor. She's written out multiple characters, many of whom she could be referring to in her answer to Wilmore.

The List:

Eric Daneโ€™s Mark Sloane (Grey's)
Jeffrey Dean Morganโ€™s Denny Duquette (Grey's)
Patrick Dempsey's Derek, aka, McDreamy (Grey's)
T.R. Knightโ€™s George Oโ€™Malley (Grey's)
Chyler Leighโ€™s Little Grey, aka, Lexie. (Grey's)
Dylan Minnetteโ€™s Jerry Grant Jr. (Scandal)
Chris Lowellโ€™s William Parker (Private Practice)
Remember people, the writer ultimately always has the power.

Which favorite character do you miss?

better not mess wit her
Haven't seen any of those shows but I agree with @nicolejb. I really don't think that was professional. Now all the actors who work with her probably cannot entirely focus on their work!
Hmmmm sneaky. I don't think that's a professional way to go about this though, if they were a problem (like she said) with drugs or something I could understand. But otherwise, that's just being petty.
James and Harrison from Scandal!!! T_T

Jungkook No Longer Baby Boy (+19)
Que tal peeps! WE ARE STILL COUNTING DOWN TO JUNGKOOK'S BIRTHDAY IN THE AMS COMMUNITY. THIS IS A QUICK FANFICTION THAT CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT! Jungkook has always been like a little brother to you and you always looked after him, especially when the guys picked in him. You were planning a special birthday surprise for him with the guys. "He should be happy he gets a cake." Yoongi scuffed. "Well well now lets not be too mean Yoongi...he is the youngest." I said while writing down ideas. You and the guys came up with a plan. You and Jin would bake a cake and cook food. Hobi and Tae would clean up while Namjoon and Yoongi decorated. "Namjoon please don't break anything." Hobi laughed. Namjoon rolled his eyes and laughed. The next day it was super hot in the office and all you wanted to fo was take a shower. You rushed home and jumped into the shower. Jin would be shopping for food with Namjoon while the others bought decorations. Jungkook would be at the library volunteering so everything should be finished then. The water felt so good as you allowed it to hit your skin. You had your relaxing body wash. You inhaled the lavender scent and lathered up your body sponge. You began cleaning and singing when you seen a pair of eyes looking in the small crack of the door. You paused thinking you seen something else. You didn't know if your mind was playing tricks on you. Then you looked back and no one was there. You finisjef showering and walked down to your room. You noticed Jungkook's door was cracked. This was strange cuz he always locks his door. You pay no mind and get dressed. The crew arrived and you all get to preparing the surprise birthday for Jungkook. You were pleased how everything played out. Namjoon only broke 3 things which is good. You walked to your room to get an extra present you brought for Jungkook when you noticed your pantry drawer was opened. Your neatly arranged panties were all a mess. You picked up the present wrapped in shiny red wrapper and seen that Jungkook's door was cracked wider. You walked down the hall and heard odd noises. "Yass gosh noona..." You peeped your head in without makjng a sound and saw Jungkook with your panties in his hand. He was licking a pink pair with a red pair wrapped around his man hood. Jungkook was stroking himself. You found yourself shook for a moment. But then you began watching out of enjoyment. Your breathing goth heavier. Jungkook slowly his hand motion and grinned. "I know you are watching me noona." You covered ur mouth. But a gasp escaped ur wet lips. "Jungkook why do you have my panties? "Noona you know I want you. I made that clear last week when I spanked the hell out of you. Remember you made me promise not to tell." You walked into his room and closed the door. "Shh boy that was a mistake." "A mistake?" Jungkook said while raising his eyebrow. He smiled while looking at the gift I had. "Nice wrapping but do you know what I really want noona?" Jungkook smirked. Jungkook walked closer to be still hard as a brick and stood behind me allowing his hard on to rub between by cheeks. He let out a groan. "I know you been with all the guys nonna, they brag about it. I want you now." Jungkook said. "Jungkook...look those days are behind me. I'm no longer group banging trash." "Okay I will just spread the word at work." Jungkook laughed. "Fine Jungkook." I hissed. Jungkook pushed me on my stomach while sliding my shorts to the side. He was happy to see I had in no panties. He stuffed a pair or my panties he had in my mouth and plunged deep inside me without mercy. The pink wet panties muffled my scream of pleasure. Jungkook pounded me hard and fast. "Noona you were all wet from watching me?" Jungkook smacked my butt hard. "ANSWER me. You like watching me wack off?" I nodded as he pulled me hard into him. He switched so we were facing the mirror and began pounding me hard hitting all my spots. "Look at that little face. You love it noona. Yoongi said you like it rough." I surprised Jungkook and pusjed him back on his butt. I climbed on top of him. "You gotta do more to get me off little baby boy." I said while grinning. I began riding him hard and fast while pulling his hair. He began sucking my right breast as I rode him. "Yass that's a good baby boy." I moaned. I could see he was coming to the edge and so was I. The room echoed of slapping skin. "Noona yasss! Oh shit!" Jungkook moaned while exploded in me. The explosion made me go over the edge. My vision was so blurry. Suddenly the crew busted in "Happy Birthday Jungkook!" "Shit looks like we got to the party late." Yoongi blurted.
