Too close to home in what way? I mean that's her right, but I'm not sure I understand.

Oh I get it now. She IS with a BM, so she didn't want an onscreen romance with one.

I am even more confused now. What, she wouldn't be able to tell which one is her husband?

I mean I just don't get her logic. It's a little off to me.

And honestly..I think all races look alike. I swear to god I've seen the same 30 people within each race 100000000 times.

Stop being an idiot....she did explain why during an interview.
She is married to a black man, and felt the role was too close to home...so she was uncomfortable.
End of story.

That`s why she choosed Patrick Dempsey, something we should be really happy about(He got fired after he talked stupid to T.R Knight/George O`malley) and they have an amazing chemistry
