Is There a Rehab for Rehab?

Following the lead of, well, everyone, for going in-patient somewhere when you’ve done or said something bad, Isaiah Washington is going to some sort of homophobe rehab for his F word repetitions.
 
Washington says of his entry into rehab, “”This is a necessary step toward understanding why I did what I did and making sure it never happens again.”
 
Where does one GO for homophobe rehab? Siegfried & Roy’s house? Out shopping with the Fab Five? Over to Rupert Everett’s for dinner?

Isaiah Desperate, But Not a Housewife

When you really screw up, fire your publicist.
 
After the obviously-written-for him apology for his homophobic slur against costar TR Knight after the Golden Globes, Isaiah Washington has fired his publicist and picked up the team of Allan Mayer and Kelly Mullens. Mayer has allegedly done fall-out control for such train wrecks as R Kelly and Paula Poundstone. Gee, if you can pull feet out of the fire for celebs who’ve filmed themselves giving a minor a golden shower and who’ve driven their adopted kids when drunk, I’m guessing some hate speech is a walk in the park.
 
I’m still liking John Mayer’s idea to have his character come out and make Washington play a gay man on TV. Walk a mile in a character’s Gucci loafers, sorta.

After GLAAD and several gay bloggers started calling for the dismissal of Isaiah Washington after his bizarre denial of using homophobic slurs against Grey’s Anatomy co-star T.R. Knight, TV Guide reports that ABC is issuing the following statement:

“We are greatly dismayed that Mr. Washington chose to use such inappropriate language at the Golden Globes, language that he himself deemed ‘unfortunate’ in his public apology issued at the time of the original incident. We have a long-standing policy to create and maintain respectful workplaces for all our employees, and his actions are being addressed.”
