A tale I read

A tale I heard

Shonda Rhimes, showrunner of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, on the backlash to Grey’s lead Ellen Pompeo announcing she is the highest paid television drama actor:

"Women do not brag enough. The other day, I came to the conclusion that men brag and women hide. And when men do deserve to brag… oh my gosh, they are so good at it… Men brag about EVERYTHING. Even things that aren’t things.

Let me take a deep breath. And on behalf of women everywhere and in the name of not leaving my sister hanging, I will… brag… I am the highest paid showrunner in television. And I deserve it."
