Don’t Let the Doorknob Hit You on the Way Out, Kat
It looks like all those rumors about Heigl’s tenure on Grey’s Anatomy are true! They are finally kicking her ass to the curb. One would think after instigating a whole mess of drama that started with the Isaiah Washington/T.R. Knight incident and continued with her trashing the writers of Grey’s via her publicist for not writing better material befitting her mediocre talent.
I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the academy organization. In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials.
If that weren’t enough – and believe it me, certainly seems like plenty – she took to the Letterman show to bitch some more about her “shitty” job.
Our first day back was Wednesday and it was — I’m going to keep saying this because I hope it embarrasses them — a 17-hour day, which I think is cruel and mean
It’s like what does this woman have to do get fired from her fucking job? I’ve been run off shittier jobs for far less. Well apparently, the producers have had enough and they are releasing her from her contract so she can go be a big movie star and terrorize someone else’s set.
And while I don’t begrudge anyone women the right to speak her mind, particularly in Hollywood – a town which has absolutely no use for such things – it still boggles the mind why the producers didn’t let this woman go do her movie thing when she asked. She’s not one of my favorite character, but she is a fave to a lot of other fans, and really the show could probably do without yet another controversial character exit. Gosh, have they ever even had a principal character exit without bunch of drama?
I’ll admit that I was a latecomer to Grey’s and probably frame it very differently than most of its viewers. I see it as an ongoing performance piece by Rhimes, given that the characters of marginalized identities are complex and the white folks just do a lot of fucking and processing of their rampant fucking while patients are flat lining and coding all over the hospital.
Still, I love that shit. And hopefully with Heigl off the show, the writers and producers can get back to whatever it is they think they’re doing with this thing.
