In the worst news ever, I am sad to report that Sandra Oh will depart Grey’s Anatomy in 2014.

In a statement, the actress said of her experience on the show:

It’s been a great privilege to play the character of Cristina Yang on GA and I am both sad and excited to see where this, her final season will take her. It was an emotional and deeply creative decision for me and I feel fully supported by Shonda and the writers. It’s so rare in an actor’s life to be able to explore and grow a character so fully, so completely. I am profoundly grateful to everyone at GA for the opportunity.

I just hope that she and her “person,” Dr. Meredith Grey, will run away together in her final episode on the show.

The one and only Dame Judi Dench stars in the drama Philomena. This film is totally going to make me cry.

Christina Hendricks wants to guest star on Game of Thrones and I’m 100% supportive of this casting. (Especially if Hendricks has a love scene with Lena Headey.)

A gay sailor made headlines when he returned after six months at sea, disembarked from his ship and dropped to one knee to propose to his longtime partner. (His boyfriend said yes!)

Our gay brother George Takei is insistent that he is in fact launching his own cologne line. I don’t know, I think he’s pulling our legs.

Glee’s Naya Rivera posted the below “hubba hubba” photo with the caption “Sneak peek this outfit for fashion police airing 8/30!#gams.” Rivera is one “talented” lady.
