At Home with Ellen Pompeo

Monday, August 29th, 2016

embed_GH_Sept_Cover_RedFor this month’s September 2016 issue of Good Housekeeping, I spent some time with Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo in her Los Angeles home.

And my goodness, what a gorgeous home it is. She talked to me about designing the home from scratch with her friend and interior designer Martyn Lawrence. And we also talked about her family life with her husband and kids, as well as how her Grey’s Anatomy role began and has developed over the years.

She recently signed on for more seasons of Shonda Rhimes’ ABC show, but in the meantime, we all get to start watching a brand new season (Season 13) on Thursday, Sept 22. And to read the full story, pick up the latest issue of Good Housekeeping, or check out my Ellen Pompeo Cover Interview on the magazine’s website.

My Inspiring Chat with Shonda Rhimes

Monday, August 29th, 2016

embed_GH_Sept_Cover_RedIn addition to interviewing the cover star of the September 2016 issue of Good Housekeeping—Ellen Pompeo of Grey’s Anatomy—I was also lucky enough to interview the show’s creator, writer, producer and all-around epic TV master Shonda Rhimes.

Shonda and I had a wonderful telephone chat where she told me how her life has been going following the big year profiled in her bestselling book Year of Yes. Shonda, a mother of three shared how she’s learned to say “no” more, how she faces self-doubt, and her big secret for facing a difficult conversation.
