Ellen Does A Little Digging

Kate Walsh tooks a little trip to Ellenand rest assured talk turns to her potential Grey’s Anatomy spin-off. Walsh – who proved so popular with viewers, ABC gave her a permanent gig on the medical drama – explained to Ellen that she’s still got a few days until she gets confirmation. Well, Ellen’s one impatient lesbian because she picked up the phone and gave ABC Entertainment President Steve McPherson a little ringer.

At first McPherson sounds pretty happy to hear from Ellen, but doesn’t seem so thrilled to be chatting with Walsh. He did say, however, that Walsh is “in pretty good shape”. Does this mean we’ll all get another hour of weepy, somewhat quirky, surprisingly popular medical drama? We don’t know, but we do know that Ellen’s got some gumption. And it’s adorable.
