‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9: Patrick Dempsey and a laughable rumor

Patrick DempseyMrs. Carter: Someone, someone has tried to rain on Patrick Dempsey’s parade just days after the “Grey’s Anatomy” star … just days after he announced that he is working to try and buy a struggling coffee chain in the Seattle area with a group of investors.

With that, we bring to you the most laughable and ridiculous rumor to come about the actor in quite some time. Apparently, Star Magazine is reporting that Dempsey, who is an avid cyclist in addition to a lover of racing, has made the decision to go “celibate” as a part of his bicycle training, and that this has made matters in his personal life tense and awkward. As a matter of fact, his wife Jillian is supposedly “furious” about it!

Sometimes, some rumors are such a pile of garbage that they don’t even need any sort of official denial. For one, it’s not exactly like Dempsey has that much time to train to be a competitive cyclist to begin with: “Grey’s Anatomy” season 9 is a very demanding job, and it requires at times 12-16 hour days that are spent both working and standing around wearing a lab coat. Just from a scientific perspective, there is also zero evidence that sex actually has an impact on stamina and endurance in cycling. As a matter of fact, some claim that it could be an asset thanks to the sleep benefits it provides.

Just in case you really want more confirmation that this is bogus, a source close to Dempsey tells Gossip Cop that the entire rumor about cyclic playing a role in Dempsey’s sex life is “ridiculous.”

If you want some more concrete news as to what is coming up on “Grey’s Anatomy” a little bit later this season, you can find it out over at the link here.
