Grey’s Anatomy and I are no longer friends.

5 Feb

Ok, first: SPOILER ALERT! If you have not seen this week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy and you don’t want to be spoiled on what’s going on, please read no further. But come back after you watch it, because you may well be just as ticked off as I am.
I’ve already talked about how Grey’s ticked me off a couple of weeks back with their complete glossing over of Meredith’s miscarriage and Callie’s magical pregnancy.
Well – this week things got worse.
Callie started bleeding and she was freaking out. She’s like, six weeks along or something like that. So she’s freaking out and I’m secretly hoping this woman miscarries (hey, she’s fictional, I’m allowed!) and maybe they finally address the freakin’ issue properly.
But no. She camps out on her OB’s table until she brings out a miraculous super Ultra Sound machine and hey! Look at that! A heartbeat at six weeks! That’s totally realistic and Super Sensitive Ultra Sound machines exist especially for dramatic character revelations everywhere! Yay!

Oh look at me! I’m Callie and I’m super-fertile! I got preggers and I’m bleeding but I’m super cool so everything is awesome and I got to hear my baby’s heartbeat at six weeks! Yay me! And now I’m not gonna be worried ever again because I have my hot baby daddy and my lesbian girlfriend supporting me! You see, the freak out was metaphorical. I wasn’t REALLY worried about the baby, I was worried about my stupid relationships. Of course my baby is going to be fine! This is TV! We gloss over miscarriages and celebrate easy pregnancies!

Screw you, fictional character.

Oh? And you know what makes it worse? It’s Sloan’s baby, right? And he and McDreamy are discussing Callie’s Super-Uterus and all McDreamy says is “I don’t get how you guys did it so easily, and we’ve been trying for months”.

Oh have you now? Really? This is your frustration? Not that you LOST A FREAKIN’ BABY?!?!

McDreamy – you and I are no longer friends. And I don’t like your post-it wife much anymore, either.

Hi I’m Meredith Grey. I may be dark and twisty but I am completely capable of glossing over my miscarriage and having lots of sex with my super hot brain surgeon husband! Yay infertile me! I don’t care about it at all and I haven’t addressed the issue since the beginning of the season! I’m the coolest character ever!

You know what the sad part is? I will most likely continue to watch. I’m a masochist that way.

I was a masochist too until I had the sense to quit the show and go adopt a kid.

Katherine Heigl, I’m starting to like you more and more. Now if you’d just stop making crappy movies, I may be friends with you again.

Ok. I’m done now.

Hollywood is Stoopid

Did you hear that Natalie Portman is Pregnant? Oh! So is Mariah Carey! And Selma Blair! And Alicia Silverstone! And Jane Krakowski! And Grey’s Anatomy spoiler alert: So’s Callie!

Is it just me or is there a pregnancy virus going around? Because if it is, please give me a piece of that action.

What kind of peeves me about these things is that all of these women are over thirty (with the exception of ms portman), and I’m pretty much convinced that at least some of them had a hell of a hard time conceiving. But nobody ever really talks about that, do they?

I read a couple of months back that lilly allen miscarried at 4 months. I’m not really a fan of hers but I was still devastated for her. But other than a small blurb about it, nobody talked about it. They were much more excited for the engagement ring she was sporting after the holidays.

Media: Oh look! Everybody is preggers and engaged! Happy happy fun times!

Me: Piss off.

I have to go back to Grey’s Anatomy again. I watch it. I have sort of a love-hate relationship with it. Since Sarah Drew became a part of the cast it’s more love than hate.

But I’m pissed at them. Meredith had a freakin’ miscarriage during the season finale. And they totally glossed over it. Everyone else’s trauma was talked about, but hers? Nope. Not really.

Now they have her obsessively POAS which is cute and all – but where was the grief? Dealing with the loss?

I think Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s exec producer) is a very sensitive strong woman, and I’m so incredibly disappointed with her handling of the subject.

I’m sure that MerDer’s TTC storyline will be very cute and all – but I don’t know, I just feel like it’s kind of missing half the point.

It’s bad enough I need to read about all of these over thirty celebrity women miraculously getting pregnant. Now my TV is betraying me.

End rant.
