Katherine Heigl, who infamously took herself out of Emmy Award consideration this year, may have also taken herself out of future employment on her hit TV show Grey’s Anatomy. After proclaiming to the world that she didn’t believe she was worthy of an Emmy Award because of the poor material she was asked to work with on her show, it is being reported that her Grey’s boss Shonda Rhimes may be ready to get rid of Katherine’s charcter, Izzie Stevens, on the show. E!‘s Marc Malkin has got all the deets:
Is Katherine Heigl dead to the producers of Grey’s Anatomy? Maybe. Latest buzz hissing from the set of the ABC hit is that creator Shonda Rhimes may be entertaining the idea of killing off Heigl’s Dr. Isobel “Izzie” Stevens because of the now infamous remarks Heigl made about the upcoming Emmys. Lest you forget, Heigl took herself out of the running for this year’s Emmy race because she felt the writers failed to give her enough good material to work with last season. “It’s not good there,” a source tells me of the Grey’s Anatomy set. “Shonda is pissed. They’re thinking of killing her off. They want Izzie dead.” While a dead Izzie may never happen, it would be an ironic twist, because industry insiders have long speculated that Heigl wants to ditch the show.
LOL! This so reminds me of the Friends ep where Joey gave an interview to Soap Opera Digest telling the mag that he wrote his own lines on Days of our Lives and then the angry Days writers killed off his character by throwing him down an empty elevator shaft. Do they have elevators on the set of Grey’s Anatomy? Cuz … if so, Izzie may eventually end up at the bottom of one of them very soon.
