GREY'S ANATOMY star ISAIAH WASHINGTON has spoken out on TV for the first time after he was left disgraced following a spat on the set of the medical drama. The actor released a statement apologising for his actions after a tirade with co-star PATRICK DEMPSEY went public, prompting fans to fear his job was in danger - but he has yet to appear on TV to talk about the incident. Washington pulled out of a planned TV interview with ELLEN DeGENERES earlier this month (NOV06), but he couldn't miss out on an OPRAH WINFREY set visit to Grey's Anatomy, which aired on TV in America on Friday (17NOV06). And when Winfrey asked him to comment on the spat, Washington opened up. He explained, "It was a combination of fatigue, pride, passion... I've been working with these beautiful men for three years now and we had an argument as brothers. "It came about at a time and a place that was overwhelming for both of us and we resolved it easily. What it was not was a brawl, fisticuffs and all that stuff. "I lost my cool... It was coming out of a place of trying to stay focused about the work and the one thing I understand about myself and my passion about everything I do is that the opposite of love is indifference... "Out of that caring, we got ourselves into a debate that had to happen."
