‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Star Ellen Pompeo’s Husband Stopped Watching Hit Show For This “Awkward” Reason

Published

on

Grey’s Anatomy is one of the most successful television series currently airing. It has been able to impress fans for fifteen seasons, and it doesn’t look like it will stop anytime soon. But some people have decided to stop watching the show, and that includes star Ellen Pompeo’s husband. But why?

Loyal Fan In The Beginning

Ellen Pompeo met her husband, music producer Chris Ivery, inside a Los Angeles grocery store in 2003, two years before the first episode of Grey’s Anatomy aired. They married in 2007, and the couple probably had no idea the popular medical drama would still be airing in 2019.

But the show continues to captivate fans. Ivery admits he was once a loyal fan of the show. He commented, “There was a time back in the day that I watched it a lot.” But things have changed, and it’s for what he considers an “awkward” reason.

“Awkward” To Watch

Ivery revealed it was too “awkward” to watch Pompeo’s character, Dr. Meredith Grey, featured in romance scenes. For example, Meredith was in a serious marriage with Dr. Derek Shepard. Now she’s in a relationship with Dr. Andrew DeLuca.

Ivery commented, “I would say I’m not jealous. I’m really confident. But it’s awkward. She’s acting, but now she’s got this new lover, Giacomo Gianniotti [DeLuca]. He’s a great guy. I actually like him.” But he’s not able to watch their romance scenes.

Still Her Biggest Fan

Just because Ivery has stopped watching Grey’s Anatomy, it doesn’t mean he no longer supports his wife’s career. He’s Pompeo’s biggest fan and their marriage is stronger than ever. “I think the secret is taking the time that we need,” he said. “Like if it’s me and her and we need a date night, we take it. It’s just sort of supporting each other. But she’s my biggest fan. I’m her biggest fan.”

Ivery should get used to many more years of supporting his wife on Grey’s Anatomy. The medical drama is currently scheduled for another season, and producers plan for additional seasons.
