Is Katherine Heigl's Izzie getting killed off?
Two things keep The Juice* collective going: unsubstantiated rumors and Grey's Anatomy. That's why we cackle with glee after reading E! Online's speculation that Grey's creator Shonda Rhimes may be planning to kill off Dr. Izzie Stevens because Katherine Heigl can't keep her mouth shut.
As you may recall, Heigl made a big show of taking herself out of the running for an Emmy this year, because she said writers didn't make her character interesting enough. That's like that Friends episode when Joey got tossed down an elevator shaft on Days of Our Lives for saying he wrote his own lines!
"It's not good there," a source tells E!'s Marc Malkin. "Shonda is pissed. They're thinking of killing her off. They want Izzie dead." For the record, Shonda's people deny it, but why would they confirm it? That don't sell ads on sweeps week.
We can't say that would be the worst thing. Her character forced a patient into heart failure, resuscitated a dying deer and is generally annoying, not to mention one of The Juice* contributors actually saying she wanted to punch Izzie in the throat for being a ditz, so maybe her departure wouldn't be a bad thing.
