Award-winning producer Shonda Rhimes has a bit of advice for other single ladies on Valentine's Day...and it may shock you.  And it may uplift you. Read the "Scandal" creator's advice inside.... 

Someone thought it might be cute to ask Shonda Rhimes, the creator of "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" if she had any advice for single ladies on Valentines Day, and that sent Shonda off on a rant that ended with "F*ck Valentine's Day."  Shonda says women shouldn't buy into a holiday created by greeting card companies that is used to make single people feel lonely and inadequate.  


She advises that single ladies (and men) do something for themselves and focus on the "love" they do have in their lives.  And most importantly, she says that great things can happen when you are single. She also reveals that she created "Grey's Anatomy" while single!  Here's her response,

Here is what I say to all the ladies who are alone on Valentines Day: please do not ever use these words "ladies who are alone on Valentine's Day" together in a sentence ever again. Ever. Again.

Valentine's Day is just a day. It's just a day of the year like any other. Go. Be happy with the people you love and who love you. See a friend. Read a book. Flirt with a cute boy (or girl). Dance it out. Watch a movie. Have a party. Build a robot. Stop a Zombie Apocalypse. Take over the Earth. Paint your toenails. Eat soup. DO ANYTHING.

BUT DO NOT buy into the idea that a day created by greeting card companies should be more romantic than other day or should make you feel lonelier than any other day. Cause life is awesome. And that (feeling lonely cause of a day) is stupid. And a waste of perfectly good time. And it makes me do things like write ranty tweets. Because FOR REALS? You're asking me to cheer up women who are alone of Valentine's Day? You don't need cheering up. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU. You are perfect and awesome just like you are. You just happen to be listening to someone who says you aren't. They are idiots. Ignore them.

Because FYI? A lot of great things can happen to you while you are single.

I came up with a show called Grey's Anatomy while I was single.

Just saying.

Fuck Valentine's Day. Go do something with your life.

much love,


Happy Valentine's Day to ALL the singles...and also the lovers....from TheYBF.com.

I get her point but Shonda

I get her point but Shonda remind me of that other freaky minded black chick Zhane. They both look like muppet rejects so they need to create those characters in their minds to self-soothe the pain of no man really checking for them. Shondra lonely hunt! So I wouldn't take advice from a woman with two adopted kids and no man!!!!!!

this reminds me of the gabby

this reminds me of the gabby douglas situation, instead of being proud of her achievements and accomplishments as a black gymnast, she was being torn down by her own people about her fucking hair. ignorant blacks, breed contempt, hatred and negativity. instead of progressing, we are digressing. when you go on black websites, and try to support and bring posititivity, all you read is a bunch of negative shit. WHERE DO YOU FUCKING PEOPLE COME FROM. ITS A DAMN SHAME BECAUSE WE ARE THE ONLY RACE THAT DOES THIS BULLSHIT. WHATS WRONG WITH YOU FUCKING PEOPLE, CONGRATULATE INSTEAD OF HATING

Oh please--black people are

Oh please--black people are not only NOT the only people who criticize otherwise successful woman for being fat, when we don't criticize fat people some "niggas always wrong" type like comes along to complain about THAT. Just be glad that there are people who can criticize Shonda from love, since that's obviously a concept you don't get.

Ladies and Gents, She CREATED

Ladies and Gents, She CREATED Grey's Anatomy. She has a great mind and at this point great BANK. I am amazed that all you can think to harp on is her arms and her dress. DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR LIVES!!!

I agree with her and I agree

I agree 100% with what she

I agree 100% with what she said! Too much emphasis on this day and what it's "supposed" to mean! Go out and enjoy the day! I gave my beautiful grandbabies & my daughter their valentine, hugs & kisses (plus a lil bear with hershey kisses) first thing this morning! and you know what? I gave love to people I loved today and I've received love all day long. If you want to have love, try spreading some around yourself. That's what its really all about :-)

Now THAT'S some damn good

Now THAT'S some damn good advice. Preach Shonda!
