Stars with babies — and stars with babies on the way — showed up en masse Saturday for the Boom Boom Room’s Children¹s Gifting Wonderland at The Century Plaza hotel in Century City, Calif. The draw: a gifting suite stocked by 83 vendors of everything baby-related, including organic baby food, strollers, maternity clothing and breast-feeding gear.
Among the attendees: Anne Heche and her squeeze, James Tupper, who announced in December that they’re expecting.
And an insider tells Life & Style that Anne, who has a 6-year-old son with ex-husband Coleman Laffoon, was overheard whispering some news to a vendor: She’s having a boy!
Melissa George’s days on Grey’s Anatomy were always numbered, but now comes word her last day is Tuesday.
“It was my choice,” George told EW.com’s Michael Ausiello of her decision to leave the show.
The actress’ deal with the ABC medical drama had an option for her to become a series regular (like Kevin McKidd’s Dr. Owen Hunt), but show insiders say that their parting was more of a mutual decision and that George’s character Sadie Harris’s story line came to a natural end.
But unlike some of her other Grey’s predecessors (Brooke White and Isaiah Washington), George is leaving on the good terms — and has nothing but glowing praise for her cast mates. George said, “I’ve made some beautiful friends. I love T.R. Knight. I love Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers … I adore Ellen Pompeo. I think she’s a strong, incredible woman. And Katherine Heigl is the most beautiful creature on Earth.”
As for her exit from the series, “it won’t be a big send off, but it’s really cool what they do,” George added.
I like how you can see the spanx through the dress… I have a reaaaallllly hard time liking her. She annoys the crap out of me.
