Goodbye, Dr. Hahn! Brooke Smith Fired on Grey's Anatomy

Was Brooke Smith fired?

Ausiello reports today:

Brace yourselves, Grey's Anatomy fans: The show has parted ways with a female doc who is blond, beautiful, outspoken – and not Katherine Heigl. It's Brooke Smith. As in Dr. Erica Hahn. As in one half of Callica, Grey's first-ever significant gay couple. And that's only part of the story. I'm told this was not Shonda Rhimes' decision but rather an order that came down from the network.
But according to series creator Shonda Rhimes, Brooke wasn't fired for playing a lesbian. The suits are going into a different direction; they are still pushing for a lesbian relationship with Callie and another woman. It's just not gonna be Dr. Hahn because they have no chemistry.

That still means she was fired, right?

Are you relieved?

Can Brooke Smith go back to Dirty Sexy Money now?
