First it was T.R Knight. Then, Katherine Heigl. Now, the next star rumored to leave Grey’s Anatomy is Ellen Pompeo. Yes, Meredith Grey herself. How could the show be Grey’s Anatomy without Grey?
Ellen confirmed this rumor in a recent interview. The new mom said, “When my contract is up after Season 8, I would probably not renew. I think the world has had a lot of Meredith Grey.”
Hmm. I smell a finale coming soon.
It’ll be a few more months before Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo gives birth to her first daughter, but already she’s taking step to make sure her pregancy goes A-OK. Here she is coming back from some form of Lamaze/preggercize class as she continues her strict regimen of diet and exercise. And while production for the next season of Grey’s commences in July, there is still no word on how the pregnancy will be worked around in the show. We know that the MerDer wedding took place, so maybe a flash-forward of Meredith being pregnant? Knowing Shona and Co., they just might do that.
