Ellen Pompeo Calls Katherine Heigl A “Hero” For Roasting The Long Working Hours On “Grey’s Anatomy” In 2009
Ellen Pompeo and Katherine Heigl were on Grey’s Anatomy together from the jump in 2005. B while Katherine and Ellen were both on the show from Day One, Ellen is the only one standing today as Katherine left the show after the 2009-2010 season over some drama. It started in 2007 with Katherine withdrawing from Emmys consideration and dragging the show saying she wasn’t given the “material” deserving of a nomination. And in 2009, Katherine was on Late Night with David Letterman and called out the show for making her work 17-hour days. Some called Katherine “ungrateful” for that. Well, 13 years later, Ellen Pompeo has come to Katherine’s defense. “Better late than never, I guess,” said Katherine, somewhere.
After winning an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2007 for her role in Grey’s Anatomy, Katherine Heigl was abruptly out of the show, thanks to a professional reputation of being “difficult.” She was eventually relegated to the likes of hacky B-movie comedies, the USA network, and kitty litter commercials. One of the things that made Katherine Heigl “difficult” was that she talked shit about Grey’s like how the writing wasn’t worthy of her submitting herself for an Emmy and the long work hours. Well, right at this very minute, there’s currently a potential strike on the horizon organized by members of IATSE, the union representing entertainment industry crew members. IATSE is trying to negotiate a new deal that would create safer, healthier work environments. And guess what, one of the major complaints from IATSE members is the unreasonably long hours they’re expected to work on set. Now Katherine is coming forward like, “A-HA! Turns out I wasn’t such a demanding difficult bitch now, was I??”
Back in 2007, Isaiah Washington got fired from Grey’s Anatomy for calling T.R. Knight a homophobic slur during an on-set fight with Patrick Dempsey. T.R.’s bestie, Katherine Heigl, defended T.R. and dragged the shit out of Isaiah, suggesting he should never be allowed to speak publicly. And over a decade later, Isaiah got bored and decided to drag the megastar who we all care about, Katherine Heigl, on Twitter. It’s actually surprising that Isaiah was able to tweet because you’d think he’d have calluses on his hands from holding onto a grudge for so long.
Katherine Heigl has not had any good press in years. Like EONS. It could be because, like Ginger Spice before her, Katherine got too big-headed for her own good and sent her once-promising career in the opposite direction by making some questionable choices. Once again, she’s busy apologizing for a dumb choice she made.
You could just tell from Darren Aronofsky’s rambling on and on and on and…you get the idea…about his twisted Sunday School of a movie, mother!, that he just KNEW he was going to spend the night of the Oscars collecting statue after statue and rubbing shoulders with Meryl Streep. Instead, he’ll get the chance to maybe be the muse for James Franco’s next movie about a turd of a movie (well, if he’s even allowed to make movies again). That’s right, the 38th annual Golden Raspberry Awards nominees were released today, and it looks like those Fifty Shades Of Shit movies have some competition from mother!. Continue reading
Katherine Heigl just can’t seem to retrieve her career from the kitty litter box. It seems like it was only yesterday on Grey’s Anatomy that she was killing Jeffrey Dean Morgan so he could get his heart transplant, but he died anyway and everyone loved her. But then she pissed on her own hit movie, pissed on her own hit TV show, and generally acted like a cooze. Now Katherine can barely get a sad tv legal drama past the premiere.
