Ellen Pompeo: No Real Wedding For Meredith!

Ellen Pompeo: No Real Wedding For Meredith!

A super smiley Ellen Pompeo gulps down another huge container of Vita Coco coconut water after getting in a work-out at a private gym on Monday morning (June 6) in Studio City, Calif.

The 40-year-old actress later dropped off a bag of clothes at the Hollywood Hills Cleaners.

Will Ellen‘s character on Grey’s Anatomy have a real wedding next season? Not likely.

“I felt like Meredith and Derek’s choice to be together becomes a marriage of equals as opposed to some faux fairy tale,” creator Shonda Rimes tells EW. “And while I love a good wedding, I felt like for Meredith, it was so counter to who she is as a human being. And I love the fact that Derek doesn’t need her to do it. I get why the fans want it; I’d probably want it too if I was just watching. But I literally feel sick every time I think about Meredith in a big white poufy dress.”

FYI: Ellen is wearing O*T*R “Essential” skinny jeans in rainy day.

    What on earth makes you think that a marriage requires a “big, white, poufy [sic] dress”, Shonda? You don’t get out much if you think that’s the only way to celebrate a marriage, hon.

    Why does everyone keep crying about a “real” merder wedding? The post-it wedding was PERFECT! Especially for these two characters! And now what’s even worse is that everyone will be crying about a mcbaby for season 7. (Even though there’s been talk of one FOREVER.) Stop with the complaining people. Shonda will make everything as it should and it will all fall in place.

    I love her hair. It’s so beautiful!

    What people are asking is about a legal status, not the puffy white dress SR keeps whining about. I don’t want the wedding but it’d be nice if something was mentioned about having each other’s POA or whatever.
    We are all aware about her issues with legally married couples but she’s not above the law and neither are her characters.

  • Amanda

    Love her :). She’s just so darn cute.

    Again Shonda, it’s not actually about the wedding, i could care less about the whole white dress deal that we didn’t get, i just want a real legal marriage not a running joke of a “post it” marriage license that no one can take seriously.

  • sigh

    @Ana: Why would you want to bring political correctness into a television show? The post-it wedding was beautifully done and I am completely happy/content with the standing of their relationship whether they are considered legally married or not. I do see where you are coming from though.

  • Ana


    It’s SR’s modus operandi. She compared the post it to gay rights of marriage, so she likes to incorporate some politics in her show.

    I have zero problem with the post it and usually don’t see eye to eye with the law, but I do think it’s important and it deserves some mention to this.

    But don’t even let me begin on the post-it thing… *roll eyes*

    Vita coc is sooooooo delicious! i had TWO yesterday. as somebody who absolutely loves coconut water, this one is the best around, i hate that the others always add sugar and water to theirs. Vita coco is just like breaking open a coconut and sticking in a straw.
    now i wish i had saved one for today :(

  • MD

    She looks so good and so happy:)
