Katherine Heigl Confirms Grey's Anatomy Exit, Last Appearance

... Katherine Heigl has confirmed her exit from Grey's Anatomy in the upcoming issue of Boring Suck-Ups Weekly Entertainment Weekly. She also reveals that her last appearance on the show has already come and gone, meaning no more Izzie at all. "We just finalized our agreement," she said. "Everyone had been working really hard to find an amicable and gracious way of letting go and moving on. It's sad, but it’s what I wanted." A crew person commented, "Good riddance, b*tch." That last quote is unconfirmed, but it's really easy to imagine so it must have happened. [EW]

... Zach Braff took to Facebook to weigh in on the future (or lack thereof) of Scrubs and said the show is "no more." ABC hasn't made anything official, but there's an old saying in Hollywood: If Zach Braff says it's true, it must be true. Except anything positive he said about Garden State, because that movie was way overrated. [THR]

... The Ricky Gervais Show has been renewed for a second season by HBO. This, despite a 0.1 rating in the adult demographic. Whatever, it's funnier than most things on television. [HBO via press release]

... The whole Charlie Sheen fiasco has resulted in Two and a Half Men cutting its episode order from 24 to 22 this season. With the extra time off, Sheen is planning a huge bender that will make the entire off-season a blur. [NY Times]

... More Paula Abdul rumors! Shortly after being confirmed and then unconfirmed for a Star Search revival, the latest scuttlebutt says the former American Idol judge will head a dance show on NBC. The new project would see contestants performing huge choreographed numbers and could launch the lucrative careers of dozens of future part-time professional back-up dancers. [The Wrap]

... Jennifer Beals has joined Fox's pilot Ride-Along, John Larroquette has joined Fox's Pleading Guilty, and Keith David has joined NBC's superhero-ish The Cape. That's all I have to say about that. [THR]

... Michael Emerson, who plays Ben Linus on ABC's Lost, has a black eye, the result of a fellow actor getting a little overzealous in a staged fight scene. Apparently the other actor, who wasn't identified so stop looking for spoilers, didn't pull his/her punch and popped Emerson in the eye, leaving a big shiner and a problem for the makeup department. [E! Online]

I read the Heigl interview in "Entertainment" on an airplane yesterday. Thank gawd they supply barphe bags! No tears here, especially for such an insincere "apology". You made your script Katy...now survive on it!

I read the EW article and she was clearly trying to cover up for sounding ungrateful for her success. It didn't work. She suddenly has a baby and then decides she doesn't want to go back to the job that made her a star??

I think it was pretty selfish for Katherine Heigl to up and leave without giving some closure to her character.

Scrubs 2.0 wasn't a bad show, but it wasn't Scrubs, either, and everyone knew it. Too bad the implosion took out Better Off Ted, too.

Very sad about Heigl leaving. What was the point of all that "Who will leave? George or Izzie?" crap if she was just going to leave anyway. God.

I like Katherine Heigl in the movies, mostly, but her TV work is just not good.

Thank goodness...and finally. Quit watching a couple of years ago because of her. Too much ego, and never really did much for me...although, I must say that she looks about 100x better with the dark hair

I think the quote was probably said by a bunch of people, not just one crew member.

I'm pretty sure that crew member stole that comment from me. But yeah good luck with the whole romantic comedy movie star career. Jennifer Anniston and *insert random star i can't remember here* have that on lock. I'm kinda sad about Scrubs bc the new season wasn't half bad. But like Lawrence i accepted the series finale as the true ending.
