“Eight years ago, she introduced us to Grey’s Anatomy with an African-American chief of surgery and an Asian character with leading plotlines,” Oprah wrote about Shonda. “Gay, straight, single, divorced, lost, searching — everyone gets a seat at Shonda’s table.”
Now we know why Shonda recently tweeted, “Why I started my day doing the ugly cry.” We’d cry too if Oprah knew we existed!
And it’s true — we love how Grey’s always had such a diverse cast, and how its storylines have been all-inclusive of every type of lifestyle. Did we mention how she’s also a badass showrunner who’s never afraid to speak her mind? Yeah, we love her.
