Slapping chicks up in the club for talking to your man sounds like something that would go down on an episdoe of VH1′s ‘Love & Hip Hop,’ but it was former Grey’s Anatomy actor Isaiah Washington’s wife Jenisa Marie Garland who was spotted putting the hand of God on her make up artist recently. According to eye witnesses, Merc Arceneaux [the make up artist] was assaulted after Jenisa saw her chatting it up with Isaiah while at Club Deep in Hollywood.
“Jenisa marched up to Merc while she was chatting with Isaiah and said, ‘Really, Merc? Really?. She threw a drink in Merc’s face. And when Merc said to Isaiah, ‘Talk to your wife,’ Jenisa slapped Merc across the face.”
There’s got to be something deeper there. She can’t just be randomly slapping up women who talk to her husband. Star Magazine reached out to Merc who told them “[Jenisa] had no right to put her hands on me,” however, she didn’t get into the details of what led up to the tantrum.
“My feelings are hurt — I never received an apology.”
Isaiah’s wife may have been drinking on that ‘Naomi Campbell Juice’, that night. Looks like she’ll have to find a new make up artist.
As far as Isaiah, he was allegedly blacklisted in Hollywood after being fired from Grey’s Anatomy for using a homophobic slur towards a cast mate. Since then, he has released a book titled: ‘A Man From Another Land: How Finding My Roots Changed My Life’ in which he explored issues of self-image, race and identity. He is now focused on Philanthropy work in Africa. Read more about what he has been up to here.
