Katherine Heigl Opens Up About Her 'Grey's Anatomy' Drama

Katherine Heigl leaves the SiriusXM studios after giving an interview on The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday (April 20) in New York City.

While on the show, the 37-year-old actress opened up about the drama she caused on the set of Grey’s Anatomy, including withdrawing her name from contention at the 2008 Emmy Awards.

“I didn’t feel good about my performance and there was a part of me that thought, because I had won the year before, that I needed juicy, dramatic, emotional material,” Katherine said.

“I went in because I was really embarrassed,” Katherine said about making amends later. “So I went in to Shonda and said, ‘I’m so sorry. That wasn’t cool, and I should not have said that.’ And I shouldn’t have said anything publicly. But at the time, I didn’t think anyone would notice … I just quietly didn’t submit and then it became a story, and I felt I was obligated to make my statement, and … ‘Shut up, Katie.’”

FYI: Katherine is wearing a Tamara Mellon blazer.

    Give me a break. She deserve everything that has happen to her. Instead of being a big movie star, now your stuck selling cat litter

    Her ego broke her career and her mom ego she was thinking leaving the show is a good idea and she would become a big moviestar but every movie and series she made was a flop . She is a diva and act like she is better than anyone else. I bet she would go back to Grey’s A if they would call her

    You don’t know her personally. You have never worked with her. So you have absolutely no idea for sure what is true and what is not, how she behaves or what kind of person she is. And to say that she deserves all the negative things that have been said and written about her is rude and ridiculous. Anything you think you know about her comes from what you hear or read in the media and if you have even the slightest bit of understanding of how the media works, then you would know that their word can not be trusted. They can literally put whatever they want out there, regardless of how accurate it is. And then people run around judging these celebrities and talking shit about them based on what the media has told you about them.
