Katherine Heigl may not return to 'Grey's Anatomy'
If you've been watching Grey's Anatomy this season, you know one of the best things about most of the recent episodes is that Izzie Stevens is conspicuously absent. Well, good news, everyone: It doesn't look like Katherine Heigl will be back ever again! They shoulda just killed her like they killed T.R. Knight.
Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello says Heigl was due to return from her requested hiatus on March 1, but March 1 arrived and the actress didn't. Surely she was done shooting her latest movie and bonding with her adopted daughter by then. No matter; series creator Shonda Rhimes apparently agreed to let her out of her contract, which is just fine with us.
Heigl-friendly sources say Heigl "was at home and ready to return to work," and that "it's much more complicated than that," But frankly, she's been a nonstop pain since Rhimes agreed to let her come back from last year's brain cancer storyline.
Keep in mind, Katherine has trashed the show's writers, instigated fights between coworkers and complained to David Letterman about a 17-hour shift her first day back on the set. It's quite possible no one missed her a bit. And quit smoking, girl; It's just making you age faster.
