Shonda Rhimes reveals why she parted ways with ABC in 2017 after writing and producing hit TV series on the network for 15 years.

Rhimes' hit shows include Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Rhimes said she decided to leave ABC in 2017 and go over to Netflix because she was tired of the disrespect.

According to THR, Rhimes and network bosses clashed over budget issues, content, and, in 2016, an ad for then-presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

"I felt like I was dying," Rhimes told THR, "Like I'd been pushing the same ball up the same hill in the exact same way for a really long time."

Rhimes, 50, recalled an incident that left her disillusioned with ABC.

The showrunner had been given an all-inclusive pass to the theme park as part of her deal with the network, and when she asked for an extra pass for her sister and her daughter, Harper (pictured), an ABC executive allegedly asked her, "Don't you have enough?"

Rhimes made her decision to leave ABC and join her pals, Barack and Michelle Obama at Netflix.

She shared her concerns with Netflix's co-CEO Ted Sarandos over breakfast in 2016.

"I said, 'I just want to be in a place where I can make stuff and no one's going to bother me or make me feel like I'm beholden, and he was like, 'That sounds great to me.'"

But Rhimes said the grass wasn't much greener on the other side.

She said she experienced a "real culture shock" at Netflix, having to get comfortable with large crowds of people in her meetings.

"50 people, if you're as introverted as I am, is terrifying," she said.

A wise person once said, "Wherever you go, there you are." Your problems will follow you wherever you go - unless you are willing to make a change.

For busty traffic reporter Demetria Obilor, switching jobs didn't solve her problems. Obilor, 26, was a traffic reporter for KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, when one viewer complained on Facebook about her distracting attire.

Obilor favors curve-fitting club dresses, the type that leaves nothing to the imagination. Male viewers thought Obilor's attire was appropriate for work. But her tiny dresses caused a commotion with female viewers.

Obilor has been a traffic reporter for two weeks at WFAA Channel 8 News in Dallas, Texas. She still wears impossibly short dresses with plunging necklines. And female viewers are still commenting on her distracting attire.

"She's a 16/18 woman in a size 6 dress and looks ridiculous," said one female viewer in a post on Facebook.com. The viewer threatened to stop watching WFAA if station management doesn't enforce the dress code.

Obilor shared a screenshot of the post on social media. "I'm not a 16/18, but even if I was, for you to try to call out my size like that to hurt me or discriminate against me, I'm not for that," she told NBC News.

Obilor, who is biracial, was attacked at her previous job for wearing her hair natural.

She shared a screenshot of an email from a woman who said her natural hair must be hard to clean and "smell bad."

"Black people on TV; there’s nothing wrong with that," Obilor said. "Naturally, curly hair — I don't care if a black woman wants to wear her hair straight or in braids, you don't get to say what's professional and what's not professional based on your white standard of beauty."

She added: "When you get older and you're in the news people warn you that, 'Hey, you're going to be under a harsh lens. People are going to critique you, people are going to say mean things about you.'"
