Personal Quote:

[on her role as a working mother] If I am succeeding at one, I am inevitably failing at the other. That is the trade-off. That is the Faustian bargain with being a powerful working woman who is also a powerful mother. You never feel one hundred percent okay. You never get your sea-legs. You are always a little nauseous.

Trivia:

On the first day in September 2001 that she moved into a rental house in Vermont as a quiet place to finish a movie script, the World Trade Center was attacked, which prompted Rhimes to reassess her future and her goals. She decided her top priority was to adopt a child and nine months later she did, with daughter Harper, and became a single mother. Emerson followed in 2012. See more »
