I think alot of is suspected this about her anyway. Becausr people asked her this whe she was on greys. She did deny it which i think is a factor in why she pulled away from jcap amd didnt really do pics together anymore amd also why i think she may have pushed for calzona to be seperated.

However im glad she eventually found the courage to come out. I knew somerhing was brewing with this new look

Just curious as to why you think her being bi had her pulling away from JCap. I don't see JCap as the time of person who would really care.

Im not saying her being BI is the the main reason. The main reason she started pulling away from jcap was because people thought they were together and we constantly bombarding her about being bi or lesbian and she had enough of it. So she started pulling away ffom jacp because with jcap having a child and being married sara didnt like jcap being dragged through the mud

That's weird if that was the case...She never supported Calzona but you don't...not support your bread and butter because you're Bi-Sexual..I mean it's not like Jessica was about to fall for her LOL. For someone who is part of the LGBT community and doesn't just support it she did a piss poor job of supporting one of the biggest LGBT couples on screen.

I didn't realize it needed said, thought it was obvious. She never supported Calzona. The few interviews she did regarding them, she focused on Mark. She never answered fan's questions about Calzona, she generally never showed them any support at all. In one interview she talked more about the bond she had with Mark and often emphasized that Callie was Bi when people questioned her about Calzona, she would always refer to that, she IMO lessened Calzona every chance she got.

That's interesting. I noticed that she and Jess never really spoke much about the couple, but this is the first time I'm seeing people say that they/Sara never supported them.

I personally found Sara's criticisms of the couple valid just from the POV of wanting a healthy relationship for her character, so I was never offended by them. (A quick Google lets me know that Sara more so wanted the writers to focus on evolving the pair than continuing the cycle of drama! and thrills!) For ex. I now see people criticizing Camilla for supporting JoLex and glossing over the dysfunction of their relationship and how traumatizing Alex's actions would be for someone who's been in a domestic abuse situation, so sometimes you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.

I also understand Sara wanting to establish Callie's bisexuality, since that's a fact mainstream media/the general audience loves to ignore - "Callie's a lesbian, etc." I don't see how asserting Callie's sexuality means she was anti-Calzona, unless the implication is that bi people don't end up in same-sex relationships? That obviously doesn't hold because Callie ended up with Penny. Help me out with this one.

It's my personal opinion and I know many others even hardcore Calzona fams felt/feel the same way. It was her general attitude towards Calzona, her interviews etc and just a general feeling. How many times did she promote Calzona? How many times did her and Jess respond to fan questions regarding Calzona? In my opinion it's nothing to do with wanting to establish Callies Bisexuality...She was married to a man, got pregnant to Mark, we knew, the audience knew she was Bi. She showed more interest in promoting Callie/Mark and the modern family then she ever did Calzona knowing how much they meant.

Jessica wasn't much better either.

It's not Fact, it's an opinion and a feeling I know many share. Take what you will out of it. In the end it doesn't matter, Callie's gone and people can move on from it all now finally

I see what yur saying. Sara wanted calzona to move on and learn from their drama to be together and have a healthy relationship. But the writers thought it was more fitting to rinse and repeat.

The thing is lgbtq has 5 groups and they are all different. And from a Uk perspective its the L that is under represented or always get the short end of the stick. They are either broken up constantly, or one is killed off or written out when they have achieved a huge following. Then they never follow through for the person left. We have lots of shows where the male relationships are treated better and get the happy ending or the bisexual that is with men,falls for the lesbian, goes back.with men then goes back with women. I just want a proper female relationship done properly on a big show where they face struggles together, talk through them and stay together does that make sense

I agree with that now. I dont understand why she didmt support them as a couple. She never really said anythimg about callie and penny either. I think she did go to shonda about seeing calzona apart and wanted callie to date a man again to show real rpresentation. But onviously tptb saw differently

It's not a shock to me, especially considering the last few months but I'm glad for her that she took this step. I wish her the best and if part of her reasons for leaving Grey's was to focus fully on her activism I have to respect that. However, given how important Callie was to Sara and the LGBTQ community, I hope that she realizes how senseless it was to end her story this way and comes back someday to finish properly.

It would be nice if she came back to wrap up Callie's story, but the writers have consistently done her character such a disservice over seasons 11/12, I wouldn't blame her if she didn't. Lol. I don't see the appeal from her perspective.

I don't know...Sara stayed after season 7, which painted Callie in a much worse light and she didn't seem to mind then.

That's fulfilling contractual obligations. She's left now and I don't see why she would want to come back, as much as I'd love it.

Didn't she have contract negociations a few years ago? I might be wrong but I thought she had the option not to re-sign at one point at the same time as the originals. Anyway, it's up to her but I would hope that her great relationship with Shonda means that she would accept to come back at least in the series finale.

Agreed because callies story doesnt deserve to end the way it did. And with penny

I feel like this might be one of the reasons she left Grey's...like maybe she wanted to separate herself from the character so she could do this for herself...

That's my feeling, too. She can't have been very happy with what the writers had ultimately done with the bi-sexual character she'd pushed so hard for on the show either.

What do you mean, jw? That Callie's relationship with Penny wasn't properly developed?

This may have been a very small factor in her leaving, but she has also produced a movie, is very heavy into advocacy, plus her singing career and doing voiceovers. She knew something had to give and since she had devoted 10 years to Grey's already, I think she thought it was time to do other things. I don't think her being bi had anything to do with her story line as Callie, I'm sure she has known her own sexuality for a very long time and probably those around her as well.

IA. Simply put, I really think she was just tired of being on the show and wanted to spread her wings. A decade is a long time!

Yes, it is, especially for an actor. She did leave the door open to come back, so maybe next season if there is some indication JCap doesn't want to continue on the show, maybe bring Callie back to wrap up their story on a positive note?

Not surprised she came out. Her haircut did reveal it to me :-).
Not sure what phase Sara is going through, and I mean on personal level.It seems like she didn't like it anymore to do what she was said to do and now she is doing her own thing, which means coming out as bi-sexual. This of course clarifies why she was always emphasizing it that Callie was bi. On the other hand, she did not do a good job to support Calzona. We will never know the entire truth around that. So it is not surprising Calzona went into a slow death. What I also find very weird is the way Sara left the cast. Nobody knew she was leaving? JCap's interviews reveal that they don't have any contact while they had so many scenes together. One would expect to say a decent goodbye to colleagues you worked intensively with right? Can't imagine I would leave my job without saying a proper goodbye.
Anyway, I don't think there will ever be a calzona reunion simply because the actors don't support it.
I am really curious to see how Jcap will act with AZ's new love interest and how she will support that couple in her interviews.
Nevertheless as being a bi-sexual herself, she could have done some more efforts in the time Calzona was a thing. But that is just my opinion. In the end, she just needs to live her own life.

I actually agree with everything you say. Although i think at the start jcap was alot more positive about calzona than sara. They were really close at the beginning then something changed. Jcap eventually lost the support for calzona again i dont know why. So it will be interesting to see how she is with the new love interest(aslong as its not leah)

I think SaRa and JCap kept a professional distance and it wasn't anything personal between them. I've always felt JCap may have been at SaRa's wedding because she was in NY the same weekend SaRa got married there. I know JCap has family in NY and just had her baby a month prior, but it is way too much of a coincidence they were there at the same time.

Maybe they kept their friendship on the DL due to some of those crazy stalkerish fans on social media. However, off screen, they have really different lives and it's not surprising they weren't any more than work friends. I know I never hung out with work friends who had children, especially small children.

As for the haircut, maybe she wanted to do something vastly different with her hair. I noticed her hubby's cut is similar to hers. One thing I will say, SaRa's coming out sure gives more credence to rumors about her and another Grey's alum being seen making out.

I never heard the story or rumour about her and another greys alum makingout. Who was it supossed to be. I could understand if they didnt hang out outside of work due to jcaps small children.although doesnther husband have kids

SaRa's husband? Hmmm didn't know that or haven't heard that. Oh, read a while back SaRa and Kate Walsh were seen making out more than once. I never really thought anything of it since there always seems to be rumors about celebrities.

IA about JCap and Sara. I don't think there's any kind of friction between them really, they just seem like strictly costars. Their lives are really quite different and it's likely that they just don't have much in common. *shrug*

Sara and Kate Walsh, mmm always thought that Kate was part of the LGBT community, so wouldn't be surprised if those rumors were true.
Yes I agree that they have totally different lives, that they don't need to get along but still... In the very beginning there were some BTS pics from them together, but when the couple became fan's favorites it kind of stopped and they never openly supported Calzona as a couple like the other actors do on GA. The other actors from time to time post a pic together on twitter. They never did that.
But again, we will never really know why and also we can't expect actors to do that.
Anyways, Sara didn't say a proper goodbye to any of the cast so not only to JCap.
