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.
