TAKE THIS WINE AND SHOVE IT
The sexy set of Grey’s Anatomy has spawned a real life romance. At season’s end, the dark and handsome Denny Duquette character played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, died tragically, leaving his beloved Izzy devastated. (Fans were outraged and hounded producers to bring him back to life.) Offscreen the story is much more cheerful – Kate Walsh (Dr Shepherd) and actor Jeffrey hit it off on set, and on Saturday had their “first real date” at Arnie Morton’s in Studio City. The restaurant was loaded with Anatomy fans who’d just seen the season finale and were abuzz about the familiar pair- many stopped by their table. One woman seated nearby INSISTED on buying them a bottle of wine, saying “Pick anything you want!” Jeffrey and Kate politely declined, but the woman refused to take no for an answer. A manager had to intervene and ask her to respect their privacy. The outraged woman yelled “How DARE you – I’m as important as they are!” A loud embarrassing scene ended only when the woman stormed out threatening to sue. It was a rather public and chaotic first date, but Jeffrey and Kate survived intact and left arm in arm.
