Pompous Pompeo!

Stick-thin actress Ellen Pompeo has turned the set of Grey's Anatomy into a battlefield — and it's all due to her overinflated ego and insistence that she's the star of the show, sources say.

According to insiders, Ellen — who portrays Dr. Meredith Grey on the smash ABC drama — has outraged fellow cast members and show producers with diva-like behavior and demands for more money and preferential treatment.

"Just call her pompous Pompeo," said a show insider. "She's appointed herself the star of the series and has gone as far as to insist on separate interviews from the rest of the cast while on an overseas press junket." Ellen's arrogant attitude is getting on people's nerves, according to the insider.

"Ellen's become an insufferable jerk and her co-stars have really begun to resent her attitude and actions."

Tensions mounted during a recent cast trip to Monte Carlo, where Ellen reportedly insisted she be interviewed separately. Her publicist, Jennifer Allen, said it was producers who made the request "because she is the star of the show."
