Is Heigl's haggling curtains for Izzie?

Tbdheigl060707 Dare we hope that Knocked Up’s success at the box office will knock increasingly annoying Izzie Stevens off Grey’s Anatomy?

The New York Post is reporting that Katherine Heigl and ABC are “still not seeing eye-to-eye” during contract talks, since Heigl is demanding to be paid on the same level as series stars Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo (note to Katie — Ellen is the title character). No doubt she needs help paying for her $8,000 wedding dress for her December ceremony with singer Josh Kelley (pictured above).

ABC won’t budge, however, pointing out that Heigl is under a long-term contract and box-office receipts don’t mean boo on network TV. Heigl is now filming 27 Dresses and is expected to return to Grey’s when filming resumes next month.

Not that we’d cry over her departure; The Juice* thinks Dr. Stevens should’ve gotten the boot when she practically killed Denny — seriously, how can you be a doctor after that?
