ISAIAH WASHINGTON MINGLES WITH THE GAYEST CROWD IN TOWN
Isaiah Washington caused quite a buzz at the LA Modernism show gala Friday at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. Mainly because of the incident on Grey’s Anatomy when he was perceived as being ” insensitive” to gay people by using the f—-t word. At the time he apologized and supposedly received some sort of counseling (word rehab?) but it was a surprise to find him at a primarily gay event. The place was loaded with gay decorators and gay antique dealers and gay shoppers who can afford and appreciate exquisite vintage furniture and art objects. The LAST person they expected to see browsing was Isaiah. He arrived early, stayed to the end and schmoozed all night. He looked at everything and chatted amiably with everyone. He’s really mending fences.
