Pompeo Tries To Save Her Fiance From Steamy Tv Scenes
Actress ELLEN POMPEO attempts to keep her fiance from watching her steamy sex scenes in TV drama GREY'S ANATOMY by insisting they do their laundry when she knows the clinches will air. Pompeo recently became engaged to music producer CHRIS IVERY and she goes out of her way to make sure her famous TV scenes with co-star PATRICK DEMPSEY don't upset him. The actress admits that watching herself cavorting with Dempsey onscreen is a little embarrassing and one recent hot-tub scene was definitely not must-see TV in her house. She says, "I thought I was being really clever in distracting him right at nine o'clock and I asked him if he could help me with the laundry so that he wouldn't see that portion of the show. "Then, 20 minutes later, he realised, 'The show's on and we're not watching it.' I said, 'That's OK, we can get to it.' He said, 'Oh well, I have it TiVo'd (videotaped) so we're OK.' "I knew it (the steamy scene) was right in the beginning so I thought, 'If I can just sort of pre-occupy him for 15 minutes, I'm good.'"
