Grey’s Anatomy returned to our screens last night, but prior to the airing of the episode, Chandra Wilson sat down with the Huffington Post to talk the aftermath of Bailey’s recent drama.
The show has been on a break for a few weeks, and I can’t stop worrying about Bailey.
It’s alright to worry! You can worry — she’s in quite a pickle here coming into this next episode. We left her sitting in the chair — she was grounded, basically. And you know Bailey doesn’t take well to that kind of behavior at all. [Laughs.]
Thinking back, she’s never really been on the receiving end of a huge wrist slap like this, putting the hospital in trouble.
Yeah, and I think that’s the biggest problem for her: the fact that her competence is called into question. There’s her surgeon ego all over the place in this. Under normal circumstances, if the Center for Disease Control needs to come in in order to figure out, “OK, where’s the common link here? What is the problem? Where does this infection come from?” You sit back, you acquiesce, you do what you need to do so that they can do their jobs. But Bailey’s really not trying to hear any of that … Obviously, it doesn’t have anything to do with her! [Laughs.] There’s no mistake that she made! She really doesn’t have patience for this whole being grounded thing.
Well, when she thought it was the intern’s fault, she was all over her. Now that all eyes are on her, who is going to be the one to reprimand Bailey?
From Bailey’s point of view, it’s everybody. At this point, she feels like everybody has turned their back. No one, in her opinion, is championing her. And they’re not supposed to right now — you’re supposed to sit down and you’re supposed to let the thing run its course. She just figures she would’ve had a champion by now instead of people just following the rules. Somebody needs to be breaking some rules on her behalf.

What did you think of last night’s episode, Gabblers?
It’s that time of year again, GA is nearing the end of it’s season and I know most of you prefer to live in ignorant bliss until the episodes air! But for those of you (like myself) with less patience and a hunger to know what’s in store, check out below the cut!
Good Afternoon, Gabblers!
Check out this cool interview with Chandra Wilson about being a mom and maintaining the balance of job and family! Take a look!
Chandra Wilson has a similar make up as her TV alter ego, Dr. Miranda Bailey. Both the fictional and real life versions are hardworking, driven, intelligent and talented. Like many working mothers, myself included, they juggle demanding careers and even more demanding children on little sleep and lots of love. Before Chandra became a huge hit on network television, she worked overnight and weekend shifts at Deutsche Bank. She was still an employee the day she auditioned for Grey’s Anatomy. She landed the role, and the following year, she got another announcement. She was pregnant with her third child, who later became a regular on the set during her breastfeeding breaks.
By now, Chandra was experienced at being a multitasking mother. When she had her daughter about a decade earlier, she was starring in a stage play in New Jersey. She took time off to deliver her baby and went back to work five days later!
Diary of a First Time Mom caught up with Chandra at the Disney Dreamers Academy to talk about chasing your dreams and your children.
Heather: Hi Chandra. It’s so nice to meet you. I always wondered how you balanced being a celebrity and being a mommy.
Chandra: Just like every working mom does, you set a schedule. You put a support team in place. You hope everyone is where they’re supposed to be when they’re supposed to be there. But you know what, people are human beings. Everything isn’t always chronicle and perfect. You get to the end of the day and you go, Whew, we made it through that one!
Heather: What advice would you give moms who think they must give up their dreams when they have a baby?
Chandra: People come up with their own life plans. As far as kids are concerned, they come into the picture when they come into the picture. You think that you’re ready and you’re not. You think that you’re not ready, and you are. There’s no way to tell that. When those blessings show up, it’s our job to be everything to them that we can possibly be.
