#Grey's Anatomy Killed Love and Now You're In Mourning.

I'm not sure which post it was but I saw comments from a number of you crying about Greys. I wasn't sure what the fuss was about, I stopped watching Greys in Season 6 or 7. It's a pretty amazing show but I stopped because I found it a bit too depressing, I found myself crying at least twice in one episode, I decided I'd had enough. Don't get me wrong, it's not Greys, it's me. I'm just a bit too emotional and sensitive especially when visuals are involved. I didn't know who to ask but when I saw Myne Whitman's post titled How #GreysAnatomy Killed Love & Got Me Crying, I understood better. Here's what she wrote on her blog romancemeetslife

When bad things happen, they often blindside you. That was what Meredith Grey said the episode before last as she complained that she'd not heard from her husband Derek Shephard after he left to go wrap things up in DC and move back to Seattle for good. Since his jaunt to the capital, I've been scared that McDreamy was on his way out, but I still cried last night as we said a final goodbye.

ABC and Shonda Rhimes, have now put out statements confirming what I'd thought. ABC said,

"After 11 seasons on "Grey's Anatomy," Patrick Dempsey is moving on to pursue other interests. Dr. Derek Shepherd is an iconic character and we've been proud to be the home of "McDreamy" and the "Mer/Der" love story. The devotion of Grey's fans throughout the years has been a testament to the creative mind of Shonda Rhimes and Dempsey's talent. "McDreamy" will be greatly missed and we wish Patrick the very best in his future endeavors."

Shonda Rhimes, ever the writer, is already looking forward, saying;

"Derek Shepherd is and will always be an incredibly important character -- for Meredith, for me and for the fans. I absolutely never imagined saying goodbye to our "Mcdreamy". Patrick Dempsey's performance shaped Derek in a way that I know we both hope became a meaningful example -- happy, sad, romantic, painful and always true -- of what young women should demand from modern love. His loss will be felt by all. Now, Meredith and the entire Grey's Anatomy family are about to enter uncharted territory as we head into this new chapter of her life. The possibilities for what may come are endless. As Ellis Grey would say: the carousel never stops turning."

But I'll say that for me, the show will never be the same. They should just end it. I was so happy when Mer had the wish that she was joining Derek in the hospital bed. And then it was snatched away. Still I hoped he would wake up when they took him off life support. Like Derek said on the OR table, it was too late. This was how I felt when the previews for next week's episode rolled;

It's a good thing Atala actually watched this one with me, who knows, I would've otherwise have burst into loud ugly tears like in these tweets; 

The Grey's Anatomy account says Mer will be fine. But how can she? How can we? When they've just killed love. 

OK, I won't cry again, I won't! #GoodbyeDerek #SoLongMcDreamy #ThanksFor10YearsofMerDer

Who else is feeling this way?


  1. Not me.
    I guess I'll have to buy the whole collection till date to knw what the drama is all about...

  2. the way kabuoy announced it yesterday was real was like..breaking news..Derek is dead..his death will affect us is now meaningless for me and my
    Greys Anatomy is an awesome one mixes intense drama and humour like they do. Never cried watching it though, my secret? CTRL+FORWARD.. gotta skip those tear-jerking scenes mehn.. I'm a gangster 'round here *Godfather theme song plays in the background* cant be seen sobbing like no sissy..
    Frankly I'm indifferent about his death, if I could recover from Lexy's death, then I'm immune to all Shonda's stunts. heard he (Patrick Dempsey) was behaving like a 'diva' on set and shonda got fed up.

    1. Lmao! My brother! It was shocking! When 007 died... I could take it... Izzy left... twas fine... Lexie and Sloan... I thought I would not survive it but Mer and Der helped me get through that... and then mer got pregnant. happy times!
      Do u know I can't watch the last episode of season 8(plane crash episode) without weeping! Lol.
      And now she had to take away Derek.... DEREK!!!
      I'm still hoping it's a very terrible dream and mer would soon wake up. :(
      This one people are already petitioning them to bring him back.*big smile*
      I'm just sick and tired of the roller coaster of emotions jor. *tired face*
      My own is that they should end it! Finish!

  3. Pls my fellow bvs which website can I download series from. Help a sis whose hooked on the haves and the have nots. Michie girl


  4. I never sat down fully to watch it ,I just peeped when my siblings watch
    My sister cried thou

  5. I wept mehn! Like a baby... It felt like he died in real life. I just can't believe he died. Like Myne said, I hoped he would live, I thought it was like all the other twists and then Meredith took him off life support... Omo, the water works on Saturday morning was on another level. I'm so done with the series after this season. Shonda Rhimes has killed too many beautiful characters in this series starting from 007, then Burke, then Izzie, then Lexie and Mark (omo the tears when these ones died was something else) and now McDreamy. I don't know how they hope to play out the rest without Derek. They were like the perfect couple(Derek & Meredith) with all their imperfections and mumu fights. Now only about four people are left from the original cast.

    I hear Patrick Dempsey is going through a divorce with his wife of 16years, I think Shonda should have cut him some slack instead of firing him. She could have given him some time off instead of killing off his character.

    Now to Scandal... and I know she has started killing those ones too. Biko please recommend good series to replace these ones before my weekends become more boring than they are right now.

  6. Errrm *scratches head* So the fuss was about a tv show? Waoh!

    1. You don't understand Queen Spicey!!!

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
