Ziffren Brittenham attorney Clifford Gilbert-Lurie also pitches in with the Alliance for Children’s Rights annual holiday program.
HBO entertainment president Sue Naegle, Ziffren Brittenham attorney Clifford Gilbert-Lurie and Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo hit Hollywood’s Le Cordon Bleu cooking school last week to help 18-year-olds who have recently “aged out” of the Los Angeles County foster care system learn how to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner. Many of the 50 kids were frequently moved around, growing up in environments where a holiday dinner was not something they could count on.
The event has been an annual tradition for the Alliance for Children’s Rights, which since 1992 has provided advocacy and free services for 26,000 L.A. kids who have been removed from their biological families by court order. It also facilitates adoptions, advocates for the special educational needs the children require and provides mentoring for teenagers who’ve left the system.
I just wanted to wish Ellen a very very happy birthday!

The Grey’s Anatomy star has launched her own shingle, Calamity Jane, which has sold its first project to ABC. The untitled drama, which has received a script commitment, is being written by Mike Sussman, co-creator of TNT’s upcoming drama series Perception starring Eric McCormack. The drama is partially based on Laura Blumenfeld’s June article in ELLE Magazine about the female agents on the Secretary Of State’s security detail. The TV project will revolve around Diplomatic Security special agents who travel the world protecting American officials on diplomatic missions and will explore the personal and professional challenges these young women and men face while taking on one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Sussman will write the drama and will executive produce with Pompeo for ABC Studios. Pompeo, who plays the title role on ABC/ABC Studios’ veteran medical drama Grey’s Anatomy, is in the last year of her current contract for the show.
“Isn’t she a doll?!” Ellen Pompeo gushed to Ellen DeGeneres about her 4-month-old daughter, Stella Luna, her first child with hubby Chris Ivery and whose picture she happily showed off at today’s taping.
The photo of daddy holding baby is the first Pompeo has allowed to go public.
“Chris loves dressing her up like him,” the Grey’s Anatomy star said, noting their similar plaid button-downs.
“This works out well for you then,” DeGeneres said, presenting Pompeo with a wee “I Heart Ellen” onesie for Stella after hearing that Ivery likes running around the house in the Ellen-monogrammed underwear the talk-show host gives to her guests.
“You know, it’s the highlight of my life,” Pompeo said of the ego boost she gets from seeing her name stamped across her husband’s bottom.
NEW YORK – Ellen Pompeo promised she wouldn’t have a big wedding. She kept her promise.
Pompeo, who plays Dr. Meredith Grey on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” tied the knot with record producer Chris Ivery last Friday in a ceremonial office at City Hall, with Mayor Michael Bloomberg as a witness.
Pompeo, 38, and Ivery became engaged last November, after dating for three years. In an interview last August, she said they didn’t plan a big ceremony because “we want one thing to ourselves.”
Bloomberg and Deputy Mayor Patti Harris were the two witnesses, and an official from the city clerk’s office performed the ceremony, Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser said.
Her character can’t seem to find romantic happiness on “Grey’s Anatomy.”
But Ellen Pompeo has found it off screen: She and record producer Chris Ivery have married after dating for three years
The nuptials were performed at City Hall in New York. Mayor Michael Bloomberg was a witness at the ceremony Friday.
Pompeo has been the unsung strength of ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” She has kept Meredith Grey appealing during up-and-down stories and the off-and-on again romance with McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey).
But Pompeo hasn’t received any Emmy recognition like winner Katherine Heigl or nominees Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson. Yet “Grey’s Anatomy” owes a good deal of its appeal to the lead actress — the anatomy wouldn’t mean much without a likable Grey.
