" In a recent interview, Shonda Rimes and Oprah herself commiserated over the challenge of having both a high-level career and family. “I have so much going on inside my head in terms of writing, there’s such a large space in my life taken up by that,” Rimes confided. “I can’t imagine it being taken up by a husband and children and writing, and everything getting its due,” she said. “I don’t believe there is room for all of it. I really don’t.” It seemed somehow a woman couldn’t—or shouldn’t—have both.

Completely.” They made it sound like a form of tiny death."
