Actor Isaiah Washington is still bitter about the way he was ousted from hit medical drama GREY'S ANATOMY - because reports suggested he attended rehab sessions to conquer his alleged homophobia.
The star was fired from the show after an on-set altercation with Patrick Dempsey, in which he referred to gay castmate T.R. Knight as a f**got.
But Washington insists the whole incident was blown out of proportion, and suggestions he needed counselling for his comments are all wrong.
He says, "The rehab thing was incorrect. There's no such thing as rehabilitation. I was given an opportunity to go to executive counselling so I would get away from the media.
"The world still thinks I taunted T.R. Knight and called him the F-word, which I didn't."
Washington left the show at the beginning of last year (07).
