What is it about the cast of Grey's Anatomy? Isaiah Washington gets in hot water for allegedly using an anti-gay epithet, then uses the word on television while denying he said it in the first place. Katherine Heigl wins an Emmy, then takes herself out of the running the next year and appears to blame the Grey's writers for not giving her good enough material. And now, there's a tape floating around Hollywood showing Eric "Dr. McSteamy" Dane and his wife, actress Rebecca Gayheart, naked and apparently intoxicated with a former Miss Teen USA.
The video - and no, we're not going to post it here; you savvy web surfers should be able to find it without any difficulty - shows the trio lounging in the buff at the apartment of beauty queen turned Hollywood madam Kari Ann Peniche. They laugh and talk, discuss what their porn star names would be, get into the jacuzzi, and so forth. You know, the kind of stuff most of us do when we're sitting around with friends - except for the videotaping it and letting the tape get out part!
When will celebrities (and politicians, and athletes) learn? If there's an incriminating tape, or a photo, or an email, it'll wind up on the web faster than you can say "Well, I used to have a career..."
Addendum: Dane and Gayheart's lawyer, Marty Singer, issued this statement to CNN:
Fair enough, though I'm not sure "exposed" is a word he wanted in there.
