I've never watched her on "Grey's Anatomy," but apparently Katherine Heigl's character is named Izzie and she gets herself into hot water now and again as most of the torrid love lives of doctors and nurses do on medical dramas. For once, I'd like to believe that the people who have treated me in the ER were even a fraction as interesting as Hollywood assumes they are.
Katherine isn't very interested in being Izzie anymore herself, as reported recently that she's working too many hours and is fatigued by her workload. The problem that I have with this isn't that she'll leave the show, as I said, I don't watch it. It's because "Grey's Anatomy" was what put the former child actress back on the map, after her previous television show (and one I actually watched and liked) "Roswell," was canceled.
Heigl is hoping to transition more into movies, after proving that she can hold up well at the box office with the success of her last two features, 27 DRESSES and KNOCKED UP. The problem is that when she renegotiated her contract with "Grey's" she locked herself into a longer stay. And that she's also been biting that proverbial hand that fed her, considering that 27 DRESSES might not have done that well if not for the power of all thing Apatow, of which her role in KNOCKED UP she was bashing as being a part of a misogynistic storyline not too long ago. Maybe the girl just needs some more face time with her new husband, Josh Kelly. Getting your bottom knocked out will usually shut a woman up for a little while.
