From Isaiah Washington's stunning verbal dance to a more romantic duet between Cameron Diaz and Leonardo DiCaprio, our Golden Globes week of diss 'n' that continues…

Grey's Anatomy

What kind of nonsensical crapola are those fab Grey's Anatomy fake docs trying to pull over on us, already? Are they getting so good at playacting on screen, they think they can get away with it off camera? Appears so. There they all were, head producers and the entire cast of GA, standing backstage at the Bev Hilton after their big Golden Globes win Monday night. For Best TV Drama Series, wasn't it? Best B.S. Job, should be more like it.

Isaiah Washington

See, I'm still hearing from numerous Grey's sources that Isaiah Washington's alleged potty mouth (when he was accused of calling T.R. Knight a "faggot," remember?) is still making people quiver on the Hell-Ay set. "You just never know what's going to set him off," confessed a Grey's castmember. "So, I just try to avoid him." Armed with this most recent inside gab, I found myself directly in front of the celebrated cast, freshly armed with Golden Globe statuettes, right after they all walked off stage. I said I loved the show, which I do. But then, I pressed—as Washington's reported comments were one of the biggest stories of the year—for proof that the cast has really moved on, as press release after press release seems to claim.

Before I could even get my question out fully, Washington bolted past his colleagues so he could be in front, and blurted: "It never happened. I never called T.R. a faggot!" An outburst, of course, that other shows and reporters heard and picked up right away. Still, I pressed, a bit dumbfounded, to the entire group of bejeweled newbie celebs (major un-borrowed rocks on some of those gals): "What happened, then?"

Grey's Anatomy, Shonda Rhimes

At this admittedly tense-as-crap moment, creator and head honcho Shonda Rhimes took over, saying, "I think the best statement is just that things were created in a very odd way by the press that were not necessarily completely reported as true."

"Are you saying somebody just made this story up?" I asked.

"I don't think any reporter made it up," Rhimes said, a bit exasperated, moving lickety-split on to how happy she was about winning a Golden Globe and obviously wanting the spotlight back on Grey's creative—not cutting—achievements. Clearly, S.R. wants the whole episode to disappear. Ain't gonna happen, considering that GLAAD has just issued a statement demanding an apology from Isaiah, and T.R. said on today's Ellen that the slur in question was indeed said in full view of others. (Watch with Kristin offers up an excerpt of that show.)

Who knew that one simple question from yours truly would have such far-reaching effects? Stay tuned. Far happier is the following, so cheer up:

Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore

Ya know, a do's really amazing when celebs are waiting in line to get in. And that's exactly what was goin' down at the InStyle bash Monday night. The famous flocked to the fete in droves, including newly single sisses Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore. Minutes after Cam 'n' Drew ducked past the press line, Justin Timberlake accidentally arrived right on their stilettoed heels. Um, can you say awkward?

Cameron Diaz, Leonardo DiCaprio

Now, JT didn't stick to said soiree too long, but C. & D. were the butterflies o' the ball, sipping champagne and schmoozing everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio to Steven Spielberg. Must tell you that Cammie and Leo-hon looked most cozy during their constant chatter, as they laughed together and whispered into each other's ears. 'Twas sex-ay. 'Twas more than just amigo chitter-chatter, I am most thoroughly convinced—you? Rebound romance for ya, Cam? If so, must say I approve!

John Mayer, Jessica Simpson

Lester Cohen/

Dear Ted:
Is it me, or is John Mayer starting to look like Edward Scissorhands?
  Costa Mesa, California
Dear California Cutter:
Good one. But between you, me and a few million razor-sharp readers, I say that's paying Mr. Em a compliment. What the hell is Jessica Simpson thinking, going from Nick to John? That's like dating Anna Nicole Smith after Christina Aguilera. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
Dear Ted:
Why are there so many closeted fellahs out there in H'wood? Isn't L.A. supposed to be more enlightened toward that end? Even down south here, we seem way more accepting than the H'wood Industry. Reverential Ricardo from One Heaping Blind Vice with a Man on the Side actually pays someone to stay and be his gay lover? Pffft. Lame.
  Charleston, South Carolina
Dear Pffftootah:
Yep, can ya believe it? First, R2's afraid of losing his income—just ask Billie Jean King, George Michael or Boy George, if you have any questions about that one (and they weren't even in the damn movie biz!). More accurately, R2 hates himself for what he is, quite unlike our darling Toothy Tile.
Brandon Davis

Chris Weeks/

Dear Ted:
Ewww. Is Brandon Davis trying to lick his own nipple? 'Cause after that pic you ran, no one else is going to want to. Just. Ewww.
  Corpus Christi, Texas
Dear Tits 'n' Sass:
Trust me, with that bank account of his, Davis will find plenty o' pec-peckers, no prob.
Wentworth Miller

Lisa O'Connor/

Dear Ted:
Is Manfred He-Man from One Gay-Acting Playacting Blind Vice Wentworth Miller? Please do tell.
Dear Det. Windy City:
He-man? Wentworth? Are you nuts? Miller's as butch as my last frost job, babycakes—think far more studly, considerably less coiffed.
Ashlee Simpson

Dear Ted:
It's a fine line between Kate Bosworth and Ashlee Simpson (who by the way, looks normal and great) in Hawaii and bitchy media commentary such as yours. This is what pushes these gals over the edge. Boo!
  Los Angeles

Dear Politically in Control:
You are correct. As I did last week, I'd like to apologize again for saying Ms. Es needed to up her crunches. She's fab as is—but I do wish Ashlee-hon had left her darling schnoz alone, loved that about her. Oops, was that another slip?
Mark Wahlberg

Nancy Kaszerman/

Dear Ted:
I'm thinking one Playacting Blind Vice is Mark Wahlberg. After seeing him in Boogie Nights, I had a feeling he swings both ways. Say it isn't so! Also, Ted, why are you so protective of homos but squeal like a pig over heteros? Unfair, little girl, unfair!
  Beth G.
Dear That's Big Girl to You:
Mr. Playacting ain't Mark W.—I wish! Think older, much older. And darling, I've squealed later on about both gay (Lance Bass) and straight (Sigourney Weaver) Blind Vice subjects, but nice try.
Dear Ted:
First, I want to applaud you for your agility in walking the line between keeping your fans informed with all the goss and not outing celebs. Second, what is the obsession with who is gay in Hollywood?
  New York City
Ellen DeGeneres

Glenn Weiner/ZUMA Press

Dear Good Question:
Same reason Ellen DeGeneres never talks about her love life on the air, and myriad other chat-show hosts do: same-sex amour is still considered taboo in puritanical America—which, of course, makes it de-lish gossip fodder.
Marc Anthony

GV Cruz/

Dear Ted:
Reverential Ricardo is totally Marc Anthony, right?
  Huntsville, Alabama

Dear Loco Lass:
Hardly, darling! Think infinitely more hot, aged, connected and less spouse-whipped, my dear.
