Why must our TV boyfriends mess up our fantasies with their real-life human problems? People reports that Grey’s Anatomy star Eric Dane is headed to rehab, and we highly doubt there are enough sexy drug counselors there to keep us happy. Said the actor’s rep in a statement, “Actor Eric Dane voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility to help him get off of pain medication that he was prescribed for a sports injury that he suffered over the recent hiatus. He reports back to work next week. Business as usual. Out of rehab by next week? Even Grey’s would give him a longer story arc, and that show went off the rails three seasons ago.
That being said, we always support celebrities not being addicted to things, and this is still less disappointing than McSteamy’s sex tape scandal with wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche. We wanted fresh rose petals and sumptuous mood lighting, not a threesome picking out porn names before taking a nap! Thank the lord Dane still has those piercing eyes, or else we’d have to pick another fictional doctor to neurotically obsess over.
