I know many of you are excited for the alternative reality episode coming up this Thursday! Wet Paint is excited too! Mr. Dan Claredon has written what he thinks should happen in an alternate-reality episode! Well worth your time to read thisr article below!
What? What’s that you say, TV Guide? The alternate-reality episode of Grey’s Anatomy doesn’t air until this Thursday? And there wasn’t even a regular-old-reality episode on last night? Ugh! Well, since we have Grey’s time to spare, let’s imagine our own “What if?” version of Grey’s. Better yet, let’s imagine one that is so wacky, so ridiculous, and so bizarro that it would make our beloved show either horrendously sucky… or be tremendously awesome. Ready? Here we go.
Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) is engaged to Steve, the patient she treated in her first year as an intern — the one whose, uh, flag remained at full-mast after their one night stand. She can’t wait to have her incredibly loving and coherent father, Thatcher Grey, officiate the ceremony. Her maid of honor is her best friend, Addison Forbes Montgomery O’Malley. She and Addie really bonded after they swapped war stories about what a lousy lover Derek (Patrick Dempsey) is.
Derek, meanwhile, realizing his boyish charm has left him by the wayside, is considering lipo and hair transplant to try to reverse his expanding waistline and receding hairline. (The makeup department would have to work overtime to get us to buy this one!)
For her part, Addison fell madly in love with Ronny O’Malley, George’s brother, after he used his woodsmanly skills to show her the proper cure for poison-oak-to-the-vajayjay. As for George, he was tragically struck and killed by a meteorite after pushing an innocent pedestrian out of the way.
Cristina (Sandra Oh) spends her day in the surgical ward making rounds… janitorial rounds, that is. She hates ambition and is content to live a life of mediocrity. She and the hospital’s morgue attendant, Preston Burke, have been conducting a torrid affair, meeting up in various supply closets on a regular basis.
Izzie decided to change professions and become a veterinarian after developing a close bond with the deer she saved in Seattle Grace’s parking lot. She’s searching for the secret to canine immortality, and in so doing, let Doc see his twentieth birthday.
Bailey (Chanda Wilson) is well known as the nicest, most easy-going surgical resident, but they say that Sydney chick is a real Nazi.
Richard (James Pickens Jr.), realizing that he loves Adele and Teddy (Kim Raver) and Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), joins a Mormon sect so that he can have sister-wives… or at least, that’s what Big Love has led him to believe. Teddy, Callie, and Arizona have no intention on following that crazy old kook.
Meanwhile, Meredith’s friend Sadie is the chief of staff. Apparently, the hospital board was impressed with the innovation she showed in practicing surgical procedures on herself. She is currently in divorce proceedings with Owen (Kevin McKidd), citing irreconcilable differences in matters of kilt usage.
Mark (Eric Dane) has become a celibate monk. After all, he has little use for his you-know-what ever since Lexie (Chyler Leigh) irreparably broke it. Lexie, ashamed by the damage she caused, has become a urologist to try to work through her guilt by fixing other men’s you-know-whats.
Finally, Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April (Sarah Drew) are stuck at Seattle/Tacoma St. John’s Mercy West Presybeterian Clinic Hospital and Treatment Center, a mega-hospital formed from the merger of seven smaller hospitals, which has recently received a special honor from the Association of Lab Coat Embroiderers. On Thursday nights, April leads the meditation and yoga classes with her soothing voice. And on Friday nights, Jackson has date night with his boyfriend, Alex (Justin Chambers). (We mean, really, when is Grey’s gonna get a gay guy?)
Captivating huh? Beat that, Shonda Rhimes! (Okay, you probably will.)

What an interesting article! Dan Claredon is a great writer! He has such an imagination! I really enjoyed reading that article. I loved April doing Yoga! She needs to chill out and relax. Personally my own alternate reality would have Addison with Karev, together, that couple would have been a riot if they made it past a one night stand! Personally I’d like Arizona to be with Teddy! They are both so hardcore and would make the perfect couple! The whole assy skinny blonde and the curvy spanish beauty is a great combination in my eyes! As for Bailey, why not pair her up with Derek? After all, she does see the McDreamy part of him! She can’t have him as a work husband due to all that hair! Let’s hear your alternate reality script! We love hearing your thoughts, so please post away in the comments section! ...

Very interesting! I had no idea Brooke had an interest in photography. And it sounds like she had a really interesting life in the 80s. Any of you New York Gabblers going to check it out? Sound off below.
Thanks to KGreysAnatomy for tweeting us the tip!

Brooke Smith will return to the big screen soon in her new film ‘A Little Help’. Brooke plays Kathy Helms, the sister of main character Laura. Check out the trailer below.
This trailer doesn’t show Brooke, I know, for a trailer that does, click HERE.
ABOUT A LITTLE HELP
Cast: Jenna Fischer, Chris O’Donnell, Rob Benedict, Daniel Yelsky, Kim Coates, Brooke Smith, Lesley Ann Warren, Ron Leibman, Zach Page, Arden Myrin, Aida Turturro, Jim Florentine, Dion DiMucci
Sara Kapner, Michelle Hurst, Dena Hysell, Joe Gressis, Glen Trotiner
Director: Michael J. Weithorn
Set in suburban Long Island in the post-9/11 summer of 2002, A LITTLE HELP examines a period of chaotic and rather bizarre upheaval in the life of dental hygienist Laura Pehlke (Jenna Fischer).
Up to now Laura has had the wind at her back in life by virtue of her good looks and effortless charisma. But lately things have begun to take some dark and difficult turns. Her marriage to real estate agent Bob Pehlke (Chris O’Donnell) has become tense and loveless – Laura even has suspicions that he’s cheating – and her relationship with her 12 year-old son Dennis (Daniel Yelsky) has become strained as well, his emerging adolescence having turned him typically sullen and hostile. Laura has not been dealing well with all this – she’s drinking and smoking too much; her self-esteem and confidence are in free fall.
When Bob dies suddenly – the result of a heart abnormality that goes undetected by an ER physician – Laura is a deer in the headlights. Her intrusive mother, Joan (Lesley Ann Warren) and sister, Kathy (Brooke Smith) step in to fill the vacuum – they pressure Laura to send Dennis to an exclusive private school, and force her to hire a ruthless lawyer, Mel Kaminsky (Kim Coates), to file a malpractice lawsuit against the doctor who misdiagnosed Bob.
As a result of these decisions, Laura soon finds herself in the middle of two huge, bizarre lies: at his new school, feeling like a loser and an outsider, Dennis impulsively tells the other kids that his father was a fireman who died in 9/11, then pleads with Laura not to tell people the truth because of the humiliation he would suffer. Laura reluctantly agrees, and soon finds herself a celebrity in the school community – the widow of a 9/11 hero.
The second lie involves the malpractice suit, which Laura knows is based on false pretenses – she knows that Bob didn’t tell the ER doctor the truth about what he was doing when he had previous heart symptoms, because doing so would have meant revealing the affair.
As Laura struggles to stay afloat in this vortex of deception, she finds that the one person with whom she can connect and communicate is, ironically, Kathy’s smart and sensitive husband, Paul (Rob Benedict). Paul had always had feelings for Laura, going back to when they were in high school together – though at the time Laura barely knew he was alive. Now, twenty years later, their respective circumstances begin to draw them powerfully toward each other – despite the obvious complications and dangers that this implies.
A LITTLE HELP is the story – funny, touching, sad, and real – of an ordinary person, engulfed by ordinary events, making an extraordinary emotional journey.
This seems like a great film, I will try to watch it. Hope it will be released in the UK! I never liked Erica Hahn, but it’s always nice to see former Grey’s actors in other projects. Will you watch this film? Share your thoughts below!
