It Was All A Lie! Prolific Hollywood Writer Suspended After Shocking Confessions Are Released

Elisabeth Finch, a screenwriter for the famous TV series “Grey’s Anatomy,” confessed to lying about having cancer and the death of her brother.

During an interview with the Ankler, Finch exclaimed, “I’ve never had any form of cancer.”

“I told a lie when I was 34 years old and it was the biggest mistake of my life. It just got bigger and bigger and bigger and got buried deeper and deeper inside me,” she continued.

Finch told her colleagues in 2012 she was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer known as chondrosarcoma according to the outlet.

However, Finch didn’t stop there. She also fabricated a story about her brother dying of suicide.

In a note, she explained why she was absent from the Grey’s Anatomy writer’s room in 2019 saying, “I’ve been gone bc my brother died by suicide.”

The note continued to read, “He was on life support for a short while but ultimately did not survive. I say this not because I need or want anything from anyone, I’m not a delicate flower or whatever, I just want people to know I’m still here, still part of the team.”

However, as the outlet discovered, her brother Eric is a doctor who is currently working in Florida.

“I know it’s absolutely wrong what I did,” Finch stated.

She continued to say, “I lied and there’s no excuse for it. But there’s context for it. The best way I can explain it is when you experience a level of trauma a lot of people adopt a maladaptive coping mechanism. Some people drink to hide or forget things. Drug addicts try to alter their reality. Some people cut. I lied. That was my coping and my way to feel safe and seen and heard.”

Finch contributes her trauma to her brother who she says physically and emotionally abused her during her childhood. She also said that her parents weren’t listening to her. Finch went as far as to say her parents not listening to her may have caused even greater trauma than the abuse itself.

Finch was placed on administrative leave after Disney’s human resources and legal departments announced they would be conducting an internal investigation into Finch’s claims.
