Burke & McDreamy Come to Blows on Set

My money would have been on McDreamy coming to blows with McVet, or perhaps McSteamy, but not Burke?! But according to People Magazine Patrick Dempsey (Dr. Derek ‘McDreamy’ Shepherd) and Isiah Washington (Dr. Preston Burke) got into a very heated argument on the set of Grey’s Anatomy earlier this week.

We were like two baseball players . . . nose-to-nose,” Washington said. “We had a difference of opinions while working on set but we’ve resolved it.” No punches were thrown: “Our faces are too beautiful for that!,” says Washington

So what caused the commotion? According to Isiahh, it was “time and (keeping) the production going. The communication was lost in translation.” But all seems to be well again on the set. The boys were sitting next to each other during a script reading just a few hours later.

In close families arguments happen,” Dempsey’s rep tells PEOPLE. “They worked it out.”

Washington even learned a little something about his costar. “I’ve never been that close to (Patrick) before,” he says. “He has really pretty blue eyes.

That was Version A of the story…

…and now for another version.  This one a tad more intriguing. According to other sources, here’s what went down.

“What are we waiting on?” said Isaiah.

“Not me,” said Patrick. “I’m always ready.”

“At that point,” said the source, “Isaiah said something mean to T.R. Knight” (who plays mild-mannered Dr. George O’Malley).

“That’s when Patrick told Isaiah, ‘Pick on somebody your own size.’

“Well, that did it. Isaiah became enraged and grabbed Patrick by the throat and shoved him back a few feet.

“Dr. McDreamy [Dempsey’s nickname] almost landed in McDreamland.”
When Knight demanded that the pair break it up, the source says, “Isaiah called him a bitch. Isaiah stormed off to his trailer to cool off, while Patrick and T.R. stood there in disbelief.

    […] Yeah, I’m SOOOOO over Isaiah Washington. Bye Dr. Burke, don’t let the door hit you one your ass on your way out of Seattle Grace. so by now you’ve heard all about the scandal the errupted a few months ago on the set of Grey’s Anatomy. The short version? Of course I wasn’t there, but it was widely reported that someone was late to set, there was a small physical altercation involving Patrick Dempsey and Isaiah Washington. In the mix of all this supposedly Isaiah referred to TR Knight using a hateful word, which allegedly prompted TR Knight to declare his sexual preference to the press. […]
