Isaiah Gets Behind the Gays

7/18/2008 7:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A year ago, he was throwing down gay-hate; now Isaiah Washington is ponying up for them?

So it appears, according to Outsports, which says that the gay f-bomb-dropper has given some serious cash to a fund that's working to stop the anti-gay-marriage amendment in California. It was all part of a plea on the part of Isaiah's rep Howard Bragman, who himself got married to his partner a few days ago.

What will Katherine Heigl have to say about this?

Anne's Ex Dealing with Feds


Pretty much backed into the tightest corner possible, accused con-man and Anne Hathaway ex Raffaelo Follieri could be trying to make a deal with the Feds.

An assistant US attorney said yesterday that Follieri is "in plea discussions" to help resolve his pending case, according to the New York Post. He's been charged with wire fraud and money laundering, and could spend up to nine years behind bars if convicted. He's still behind bars pending $21 million bail.

Raffa's lawyer wasn't so sure about the plea: "As far as I'm concerned, we're looking to our day in court," said Flora Edwards.

Probst was nominated for best reality show host.

Why would you want to stop an amendment? Isn't it a right for people to have their own opinion? No judge should decide for the people. If the people vote yes then let it be, but if they vote no, that's their right to do so. Isaiah knows that Hollyweird is ran by gays and he better kiss ass or he won't work.

I thought Jeff Probst was still with that Julie girl from one of the Survivor seasons? Hasn't it been like 4 years or something?
What I really want to know is what's up with Phil Keogh from Amazing Race? Anybody have the scoop?

Isaiah Washington: A reminder that Grey's Anatomy used to be...great.

Apparently, if your an actor in Hollywood these days, saying the word f a g g o t is verboten if a homo happens to be within a 3-mile radius of the person who says it. At the end of the day, T.R. Knight wasn't even in the room when Isaiah said what he said! But because ABC is afraid of the homo loby throwing a hissy fit, they chose to ruin the guy's reputation, and try to ruin his career. Political correctness shouldn't be used to decide who works in Hollywood. But in this case, sadly, it was.

But I guess that Isaiah is getting the last laugh. When he was there, the show was trading the #1 slot on Thursday's with CSI every other week. Now? It's a shell of its former self. And the show wasn't even nominated for Best Drama! (Chanda Wilson and Sandra Oh were the only ones that got anything) Poetic justice is a bitch, ain't it? ;-)

I don't give a damn what Heigl has to say about it. Hasn't she ridden this gravy train far enough? And for the record, Isiah was never a homophobe. I really wish you all would quit trying to slam the man on side side and glorify that big mouth blondie who appears to think her words should be carved into stone somewhere. Grey's ratings went downhill not because america is homophobic or the writing was suspect, because it always WAS suspect. It went downhill because the majority of Americans can still tell s**^ from shinola and see this was nothing more then a power play by a couple of coworkers. Many in the gay community support Isiah and appreciate his actions. Why not just say "Thank you, we appreciate your support"?

According to Wikapedia they broke up in March 2008. When he subbed for Regis a couple of weeks ago he did not even mention her like he usually did in the past. I kind of wondered about it then,
