Grey’s Anatomy regular contributor Eric Dane, after an E! news reporter informed him that absentee co-star, Katherine Heigl, had submitted her name for a Best Supporting Actress Emmy.

The happy and third-party-friendly couple are about to make news for something other than a videotaped make-out sesh with a sex addict. They finally officially announced Rebecca’s pregnancy, and word is she’s having a girl! Congrats to the family!
I want to take this opportunity to clear up something. Some of you thought I was mean-spirited in criticizing a pregnant Rebecca Gayheart for smoking. Hey, if looking out for a helpless individual who can’t speak for themselves makes me mean, too bad. When I was pregnant, I craved a bottle of red wine like Michael Lohan craves getting a mention on Page Six. Sometimes you just have to put an unborn child first. And, you know, she killed someone. So she has a responsibility to do better and you can bet your bippy that I’m not going to feel bad about holding that viewpoint. Now, INF and Huffington Post have reported that RG is preggo. If, in fact, she’s just retaining water, I apologize to her pooch. More importantly, can we now talk about how Eric Dane and Smokestack Gayheart are suing Gawker?
The couple filed suit against Gawker in L.A. County Superior Court today in response to the website’s decision to publish a four-minute clip of their ridiculous non-sex tape. Through their lawyer, they are seeking more than $1M in damages as well as an injunction against the video.
Gawker’s publisher Nick Denton responded on Twitter: “To quote the great Marty Singer — Eric Dane’s lawyer — if you don’t want a sex tape on the internet, “don’t make one!”
