Dr. Burke what happened?????

Grey’s Anatomy star Isaiah Washington has entered a residential treatment facility in an effort to quell the controversy surrounding his anti-gay remarks — and save his job. What is it with everyone going into rehab lately??? ok I know that being anti-gay is very wrong but now there is rehab for it?

According to an insider, Isaiah, who issued an apology for his statements on Jan. 18, agreed to undergo a psychological assessment after talks with ABC executives.

Ok for those
that don’t remember the whole problem is that Dr. Burke basically outed T.R. Knight on the set of Grey’s which of course is a big no no. Then at the Golden Globes he denied that he had ever said it but while denying it he said the word um “Rhymes with rag.” So basically the guy is a homophobe and ABC says he has to go to rehab. Hope he sees brit and lindsey there.

He is married and has 4 children! Apparently he was spotted going into a rehab facility today. I just don’t know what I’ll do w/o my Dr. Burke!

In a statement today Isaiah said “With the support of my family and friends, I have begun counseling. I regard this as a necessary step toward understanding why I did what I did and making sure it never happens again. I appreciate the fact that I have been given this opportunity and I remain committed to transforming my negative actions into positive results, personally and professionally.”

“ABC has told him he must enter a program to examine why he would say such hateful words,” the insider says.

Meanwhile, during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Jan. 17, T.R. confirmed what Isaiah had said last fall — and expressed surprise at his co-star’s attempted denial.

Isaiah issued his apology the next day, saying, “I can neither defend nor explain my behavior. I can also no longer deny to myself that there are issues I obviously need to examine within my own soul, and I’ve asked for help.”

Isaiah’s cast mates have been vocal about the controversy. “I feel really sad,” Kate Walsh has said. “I just trust that our show will deal with it in the way it sees fit.”

Katherine Heigl called the situation “tense,” adding, “I think it’ll work out and I’m hopeful that it’s handled properly.”

Obviously the reps at ABC did not comment available for comment.
