Ellen Pompeo’s Purse Stolen From Her While She Vacations in Italy: ‘I Blame the Rosé’

Ellen Pompeo‘s Italian vacation hit a little bit of a bump in the road on Friday when a thief snatched her purse from her in Florence.

The Grey’s Anatomy star, 48, shared the news of her robbery on Instagram, writing, “My purse was stolen from right under my nose!!”

“I blame the rosé!!” Pompeo joked.

Luckily, Pompeo’s bag was recovered — a good thing for both the star and the thief, as Pompeo was ready to fight him or her.

“Grazia to who ever stole it for dropping it on the street exactly in tact,” Pompeo wrote. “I was tracking my phone and chasing you down… had I caught you… it would not have ended well for you… I am nice but lets not forget my heritage… NAPOLITANO…. hai furtuno y io hai destine 👊🏼🇮🇹😘.”

“Also I hope you were smiling because e Sarai catturato perche sei in macchina 📷📷🎞” Pompeo added, explaining that the thief had been caught by security cameras and would be captured.

The actress also took time to thank the Florence police, who were in the picture she shared, and the staff at the Ristorante & Wine Bar dei Frescobaldi, where she was was dining at the time.

“Grazia a polizia Di Firenzia squadro volanti y resterante Frescobaldi,” Pompeo wrote in Italian, later teasing that her use of the language might not have been exact. “Please forgive my horrible Italian.”

Pompeo is traveling in between seasons of Grey’s. The acclaimed ABC medical drama will return for its 15th season this fall.

She’s been with the show since the beginning, starring as the title character Meredith Grey, and recently negotiated her $ 20 million salary — making her the highest paid women on television.

“I was really tired and I knew was stepping away, so it was a moment for me to say, ‘If I’m going to stay, I’m away from my kids a lot, it’s really got to be worth my while. I have to break some glass ceiling to have it worth it for me to stay,’ ” Pompeo previously told PEOPLE of her negotiation.

“I had support and I had the courage to do it and I was also completely willing to walk away,” she continued. “I was ready for it to not go my way, that’s the most important thing. It might not go your way, you’ve got to be okay with that.”

As for her trip to Italy, should she get in any more trouble, Pompeo could always call on her Grey’s costar Giacomo Gianniotti.

The actor, who plays Dr. Andrew DeLuca on the show, commented on her Instagram, offering his support (and help with her Italian, should she need it). 

“C’mon Ellen! You didn’t hit up your boy for an Italian translation?” he joked. “Haha I’ll be there in July and I’ll be on the prowl for your boy, he don’t stand a chance. Glad you are safe!”

T-Pain Sent This Teen A Stolen Quote For His Yearbook — And The School Ran It

One high school senior is ending his school year on a note that only T-Pain could hit, thanks to a memorable yearbook quote.

When Gabriel Silvan, a 17-year-old student at Kentwood High School in Covington, Washington, tweeted T-Pain last year for inspiration for his senior yearbook quote, he didn’t think the hip-hop artist would actually respond.

One day after tweeting his request ― “give me a senior quote please:)” ― T-Pain obliged

Silvan, surprised that T-Pain took the time to answer, sent the singer an excited shoutout ― “YOOOOOO TPAIN!!!!” ― then submitted the suggestion to his yearbook staff.

Six months later, Kentwood High School’s yearbooks came out.

“I’ve been a fan of T-Pain since I got my first MP3 player in 2007,” Silvan told HuffPost. “I never thought he would [respond] but when did I was ecstatic.”

While T-Pain’s suggested quote sounds like something he would croon in Auto-Tune, it’s not actually an original quote. Those words of wisdom were made famous by 1970s Major League Baseball star Oscar Gamble.

The quote was in reference to the “chaos within the New York Yankees clubhouse,” according to the book “Baseball in Montgomery” by Clarence Watkins.

Without context, many people were confused about what T-Pain’s message meant.

Nevertheless, Silvan submitted T-Pain’s quote to the school’s yearbook staff.

This week, it made it to press.

Silvan tweeted T-Pain a picture of the finished product to let the singer know that he is immortalized in the 2016-17 edition of Kentwood High’s yearbook.

In response, T-Pain honored Silvan with a laugh-cry emoji and a slow clap.

“This is the kind of shit I live for,” the singer tweeted to the 17-year-old. He also congratulated him for the major accomplishment ― the tweet, not the whole graduating high school thing.

Still high off of the energy from T-Pain’s reaction, Silvan shared the precious moment on his secondary Twitter account and it quickly went viral.

He called his yearbook quote a product of “a series of very very very very fortunate events.”

While many people thought the T-Pain yearbook quote was great, a lot of Twitter users pointed out that T-Pain ripped off Gamble’s quote.

 “Give Oscar Gamble the respect he deserves,” one person wrote to Silvan. Another person defended T-Pain by saying that the singer should “sang it, so he can make it clear.”

Silvan doesn’t mind if T-Pain borrowed the quote from the former ballplayer. He’s just grateful that his favorite hip-hop star reached out to him.

“I don’t care [because] it’s a little unique and [T-Pain] gave it to me over Twitter,” he told HuffPost.

Now Silvan is learning to deal with his 15 minutes of viral fame before he graduates next week.

“It’s wild to go viral. I’m all over Instagram and stuff, but I’m trying to be humble,” he said. “But with all the fame and graduation so close, it’s hard not to show off.”

So far, his plan to stay humble seems to be working ― a little.

Stolen Gifts (Book 1 Gift Series)

Having a Gift is hard. Keeping the ability to read and manipulate minds a secret from family and friends is torture. Vanessa (Van) Lyons is terrified of her very powerful Gift of Mind, and has been hiding it from her family since she was a child. Her Gift troubled her so much that she moved away from everything and everyone she knew to avoid the possibility of the truth being discovered. She’s stayed away for a long time, making excuses for staying put in her charming little cottage in a small town far enough away to be a comfortable buffer. But an invitation to the wedding of her childhood best friend Kelley brings her back home…and forces her to confront all of her fears and emotions. It also forces her to be face-to-face with the man she has loved since they were young. Caine Moore is a handsome journalist with a playboy reputation. Seen frequently about town or in the tabloid pages with a different beautiful woman on his arm, he has become a completely different man from the boy Van grew up with. Tension builds between them as he sends Van mixed messages throughout the pre-wedding festivities, confusing her and making her yearn for things she’s spent a long time convincing herself she could never have. Caine has been working on a story, and has seen things he shouldn’t see. In his desire to protect Van, he inadvertently pulls her into an intriguing but deadly case that puts her right into the killer’s path…

Before she knows it a thief has hijacked the box of books she has carefully selected, and Claire must find the books and the culprit if she is to keep her job and her life. From ranchers who take their property rights in deadly earnest to traveling book collectors who are Internet savvy even if they live in their pickup trucks, the authenticity of this exciting novel will grab any reader who has ever wandered into a used book store. "An intricate puzzle that kept me guessing until the last piece snapped into place. "The Stolen Blue" is a terrific mystery with a savvy and thoroughly likeable sleuth."–Margaret Coel, author of "The Lost Bird" "Neil Hamel is gone in this one, but Van Gieson’s back–and better than ever. Don’t miss "The Stolen Blue.""–Tony Hillerman "Judith Van Gieson was always a terrific writer, but now she’s outdone herself with "The Stolen Blue," starting a grand new series featuring Claire Reynier.
