Katherine Heigl Takes Hiatus From Grey's Anatomy

Katherine Heigl Takes Hiatus From Grey's Anatomy

Katherine Heigl will be stepping away from Grey’s Anatomy for five episodes this season, EW reports.

The 30-year-old actress needs the break to shoot her new romantic comedy Life as We Know It, which is being directed by Greg Berlanti (The Broken Hearts Club). Her leave of absence is bound to coincide with co-star Ellen Pompeo‘s maternity leave.

E! reports Izzie (Heigl) will disappear for awhile after getting fired during the merger of Seattle Grace and crosstown rival Mercy West. Meredith (Pompeo) will also fade into the background for a bit while new doctors take front and center: Nora Zehetner, Robert Baker, and Jesse Williams.

No! I love Izzie – how are they going to even have shows without Ellen AND Katherine? This is not good news. Well, at least Izzie hasn’t died yet!

I wasn’t gonna watch Greys for a lot of different reason and a big one being her! maybe i will tune in when she is gone!!

No Katherine, no me. She’s the best star on this sinking ship.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! WHY?? SHE’S MY FAVORITE! AND ELLEN TOO!

she is so over rated!!! I just would she would make up her mind to stay or go??????

“reports Izzie (Heigl) will disappear for awhile after getting fired during the merger of Seattle Grace and crosstown rival Mercy West.”- WTF, Izzie gets fired? Is no one else reading this? Okay, LVAD wire pulling, dead Denny, Quitting her job, Coming back, Seeing ghost Denny, having sex with ghost Denny, finding out she has cancer, and getting married? Now she’s getting fired? What the *uck!

I hope the show is better this season!! it stunk last year it’s way to gay

ya please NO gay seens this year

Officially freaking out. GAH! Izzie gets fired and is missing for 5 eps or whatever? Mer fades into the background? Mercy West and SGH merge. More new doctors?

We just got 2 new ones!! Arizona Robbins and Owen Hunt. They wanna put more it? Seriously?!?! GAH! If this screws my favorite show up I’m gonna go nuts. MerDer better still be the centre of this damn show or I’m gonna riot.

I thought Izzie was gonna die off??? So, now they bring her back, but then she gets fired?!? I’m totally confused. They are ******** us all up so we can continue to watch…they need ratings, so they are leaving us all confused!!!

I had a group of friends at work who watched this show all the time.. Now they could care less.. This happens all the time. I myself could not stomach the show with all that McSteamy and McDreamy crap.. come on.. Are women really that childish.. My favorite is Christine.. She should have gotten more of the spot light; Her character was the most interesting to me… But NO the show keep going with that boring Derek and Meredith.. Sorry they are too boring. and contrived..

But hey I am not a viewer anymore.. so maybe the fans of the show like all this stuff.. Go figure..

Who cares? This chick really can’t act, anyway. Another romantic comedy? She’s not cut out to play romantic comedy roles. castrating bi#$% maybe…

im still shocked that she’s still employed to work on this show
ive never seen it but she must be important if she’s allowed to bitzch all the time and still doesnt get fired

GOOD RIDDANCE,BUT HOW ABOUT SHE NEVER RETURNS THEN I CAN WATCH THE SHOW WITHOUT HAVING TO LOOK AT HER SMUG EGLYASS FACE
