It's True: Heigl Has Left 'Grey's Anatomy' For Good

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 24th 2010 11:32AM
EWThe on-again, off-again relationship between Katherine Heigl and ABC's 'Grey's Anatomy' is permanently off-again. Michael Ausiello reports that Heigl really is leaving the show for good.

But this isn't just some statement that ABC is releasing announcing the news, Heigl is actually the cover story this week at Entertainment Weekly, where she explains who she has fought with, why she is leaving the hit show, and why she needs to apologize for certain things she has said in the past. The big headline on the cover actually says "I'm Sorry."

Uhhh...does anyone else think that's a really odd cover? This is obviously a PR move, and that's fine (that's done all the time with celebrities), but a prayer pose? Seriously? I'd like to think it's supposed to be ironic and funny but it just comes across as lame.

Heigl was supposed to return to the show on March 1 but didn't, so both sides decided to have her leave the show.

All Debbie wants for Festivus

by Debra McDuffee, posted Dec 16th 2008 2:25PM
TV Squad's Festivus logoReally, it's almost too much to ask for anything more, when this year has brought so much good TV. You may think I jest here, but if you saw the Dexter season three finale, if you curled up with House a time or two, or have caught even just one episode of The Mentalist, you know what I'm talking about.

When the rest of the shows-a-stinkin' take up the airwaves, there's always TV on DVD. So, really, is it asking too much to want more from TV for Festivus this year? Speaking as a completely selfish TV watcher, I think not. So with wild abandon, here are my Festivus wishes:

Wait a second, Katherine Heigl makes HOW much money?

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 8th 2008 7:00PM
There are three things I know about Katherine Heigl.

1. She stars in ABC's Grey's Anatomy.

2. She's not afraid to speak up if she thinks the show's writers have screwed up.

3. She'll never let you hear the end of it if you pronounce her name wrong, and she'll hunt you down like a dog.

Now there's a fourth thing I know about Heigl: she's the fifth highest paid actress in Hollywood.

Grey's Anatomy: All By Myself

Izzie and Denny in bed
(S05E10) Before I even start this review, I've got to vent about the absurd amount of commercials during this episode of Grey's Anatomy. Is it always this bad and I just haven't noticed? Are there always ads every two minutes or so? I found it extremely distracting to be constantly interrupted, especially when there were so many storylines going on tonight.

And we did have a lot to keep track of: Dr. Dixon's appearance, the Izzie / Denny / Alex love triangle, who would be awarded the first solo surgery, Callie's and Sadie's flirting, the medical cases of the week, Yang and Hunt, Sloan and Little Grey, Bailey and Sloan ... I can barely keep track of them all.

Let's break down this episode after the break and try to make some sense of "All By Myself."

ABC to focus group: you cool with Izzie and Denny falling in love?

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 27th 2008 12:03PM

Katherine Heigl and Jeffrey Dean MorganApparently ABC is weirded out by Izzie having sex with a ghost too. At the very least, they certainly are curious.

According to EW, the alphabet network has started testing audiences with a potential Grey's Anatomy love story between Izzie and the very, very, very not alive Denny Duquette.

Now I know focus groups aren't cheap and since it's Thanksgiving Day, I'm in a very giving mood. So if anyone from ABC is reading this - let me save you some money:

This story BLOWS.

Heigl says she's staying on Grey's

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 27th 2008 4:41PM
K Heigl Grey's AReports of Katherine Heigl's exit from Grey's Anatomy have been greatly exaggerated, and that comes straight from the actress's mouth. Heigl's staying on Grey's Anatomy for the foreseeable future.

In recent weeks, since choosing not to submit her name for Emmy consideration because she was critical of the material she had this past season, speculation has been that the star wants out of the show. Fueling the fire is the fact that in the past year, thanks to Knocked Up (and a lot less to 27 Dresses), Ms. Heigl's getting many, many offers to jump to the big screen full time.

Life & Style caught up with her last week at L.A.'s Hotel Cafe, where she was watching her husband Josh Kelly, performing. When asked if she would be on Grey's this season, she said, "Of course, absolutely. Those people are like my family." She described the set as a happy, joyful place where there's lots of laughter despite the serious storylines they're playing.

Callie Vs. Izzie

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Mar 20th 2007 2:04PM
Grey's AnatomySince the first episode Callie Torres laid eyes on George O'Malley on Grey's Anatomy, Izzie Stevens has not been kind to the new female doctor around the hospital. When George started to officially date Callie, he slowly started to lose touch with best friend Izzie. But Grey's Anatomy's fans know that George and Izzie renewed their friendship and even more when "Gizzie" was created in the latest episode!

So who will George choose? Wife Callie or best friend Izzie? With that, we bring you "Callie vs. Izzie".

Carmen Electra, George and Izzie make big slips

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Mar 16th 2007 1:41PM
Izzie and George make a big liquor induced mistakeTo slip up is human. Sometimes we know not what we are going to do, or say things we don't mean to say or have any intentions on doing. If you were watching television yesterday and happened to take some notes, you might have learned a thing or two about slips.

After making an appearance and modeling for a 'Max Factor Clothes off Our Backs' charity event in Hollywood yesterday, Carmen Electra was quoted during her red carpet arrival, that she had never fallen on the catwalk before. Shortly thereafter she appeared on the catwalk and didn't realize she had jinxed herself and made a crash landing on the runway. Followed by an encore crash landing by Allison Sweeney of Days of Our Lives. Extra was there with cameras on and more than willing to showcase for all of us to see. How embarrassing.

However hard she fell, it would never be harder than the slip that George and Izzie made on Grey's Anatomy last night...

Wait a second: Grey's Anatomy is named for a character?!

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 23rd 2007 1:37PM

Grey's AnatomyI don't watch Grey's Anatomy. I refuse to a.) get involved in a yet another continuing medical drama, and b.) I refuse to watch a show where there are characters named McDreamy and McSteamy. So I had no idea that the title of the show, while having a double meaning (including the medical/anatomy one, with a different spelling) was also referring to the lead character from the show, played by Ellen Pompeo, named Meredith Grey.

I learned this from reading Verne Gay's column about the show here in Newsday. How did I not know this earlier?

What about other shows I don't watch? Is "Miami" the name of David Caruso's character on CSI: Miami? Is Judge Judy's real first name "Judge?" Is "Philadelphia" the name of one of the characters on It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia? Or is it "Sunny?"

Izzie's boyfriend is resurrected on new ABC pilot

by Anna Johns, posted May 30th 2006 10:27AM
jeffrey dean morgan; grey's anatomy; katherine heiglJeffrey Dean Morgan, the actor who played the love of Izzie's life on Grey's Anatomy, just landed a role in a new drama slated for ABC. The untitled program is another Shonda Rhimes creation (as is Grey's) and it's about a group of female journalists, so I imagine Morgan has a supporting role.

This may or may not be comforting news to all you Grey's Anatomy fans who had your hearts broken, as did Izzie, when Morgan died in the season finale. He also has recurring roles on Supernatural and Weeds.

Grey's Anatomy: jumping the shark?

by Bob Sassone, posted May 29th 2006 6:09PM
Grey's AnatomyIs it possible for a TV show to jump the shark before its first season is even over? TV writer Lee Goldberg thinks that it may have. The L.A. Times has a story about how a lot of people in the medical profession think that the popular ABC medical drama has already gone way over the top. Specifically, they're talking about the season finale and the plot about an intern getting involved with a patient.

I've never seen the show, so I can't say that it has jumped the shark or not. But I guess my first question is: people are actually still using the term "jumping the shark?" That's soooo 2001.

Grey's Anatomy: What Have I Done to Deserve This?

by Sarah Gilbert, posted Feb 27th 2006 1:18PM
Last night on Grey's Anatomy, karma was biting everyone back. And I know most of you feel so badly for George, because Meredith used him, because he's the victim. And you're feeling bad for Izzie. She's the one who walked in on Alex with Olivia, so she deserves the sympathy, right? And Addison. Everyone loves to hate Addison, who cheated on her husband, who's been approached by Sexy McSteamy, her old love interest, and you know what we're all thinking: is she going to sleep with him again?

You've got all this righteous anger, against Meredith over her treatment of George, Alex over his romp in the hospital bed with the hottie nurse, and Addison for just being there. And if you're anything like me: your anger pulled a switcheroo on you, diffusing, spreading out over the whole cast until it wasn't anger any more, really, but sympathy and sorrow and this little, sad hope.

But before we continue on with the major themes of the show I have to send out a hearty, loud, mama-rific cheer to the writers for their portrayal of Bailey. Oh how I love you, writers. You made her leak. As I'm deep in the throes of my second experience with breastfeeding, I've had those twin milky spots on my nice work shirt oh, so many times. And the way she plays it is priceless, in an especially emotional conversation with Addison: "Please don't cry! You're going to make me... (holds breasts in a motion to which I totally relate) lactate!" I would have jumped off the couch and done a little dance of joy over this realistic and funny portrayal... but I was breastfeeding my 10-month-old.

Grey's Anatomy: (As We Know It)

by Sarah Gilbert, posted Feb 13th 2006 2:31AM


When this episode ended, I just wanted to turn off my TV. I knew that nothing coming after it could possibly approach my now-heightened television standards. This show now ranks in my top-five list, greatest hours of TV ever. Seriously.

And it wasn't just the dramatic circumstances - the bomb inside a patient, the impending birth of Bailey's son, the threatened death of her husband, the sexual tension between Alex and Izzie, the looove tension between Shepherd and Meredith, Burke and Cristina. It was the film work, the emotion, the music, the heart-stopping fear and love and agony and ... just wow. And the shower scene, my lord, that was truly great stuff. Every bit of dirt that sullied my conscience after loving the shower scene that opened last week's episode was [yes I'm conscious of my double entendre] washed away.

Thanks, ABC, for advertising the Season 1 DVD at the end of this episode! Great. 'cause all I want is the DVD of this season now.
