Isaiah Hires PR Doc

2/28/2007 3:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Controversial "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington has a new man in his life.
Washington and Bragman
TMZ has exclusively learned that Washington signed with PR crisis expert Howard Bragman and his company, Fifteen Minutes. Bragman started Fifteen Minutes PR in 2005 after selling powerhouse PR firm Bragman Nyman Cafarelli.

Interestingly, Bragman is openly gay and is the man responsible for the wildly successful launch of out and gay NBA center John Amaechi's best-selling book, "Man in the Middle," which was the subject of a homophobic slur by NBA car wash owner Tim Hardaway.

A source tells TMZ that Bragman is known for, "telling it like it is," to his clients, and that Isaiah will be no exception. Bragman's office confirmed that Washington is on board, and in a statement to TMZ said, "Our work with Isaiah is about his future -- not the past. There is an important dialogue in our society about diversity that needs to happen, and Isaiah is uniquely positioned to be the catalyst for this."

I'm so sick of this story - leave Isaah alone! Ok, he doesn't particularly love the gays...that's his business....who cares. That TR Knight dude seems like a fruit anyway. I sure as hell like Isaah a LOT more than TR or that fugly Heigl $lut...at least Isaah has talent!

Isaiah Washington is one of the most attractive men in Hollywood; yet, you continue to run the most unattractive, bug-eyed photo of him. I think the message is clear and so is your intent. I am offended by this racist portrait you continue to paint, and I think you should be ashamed of yourself of trying to perpetuate a stereotypical, racist view of this man.

Isaiah Washington made a mistake and has tried to correct it, you should do the same.
