Katherine Heigl is leaving Grey’s Anatomy. That you already know, or at least probably suspected. But now the star has officially confirmed the news herself.
“I am done,” she said. “We finalized our agreement. Everyone had been working hard to find an amicable way of moving on. It’s sad but it’s what I wanted.”
The actress says that it was family issues, not her burgeoning film career, that prompted her to approach series creator Shonda Rhimes and ask to be let go.
Not sure if we buy that, as she's been angling to be let go for several seasons now and just became a mom late last year, but hey, it definitely sounds better.
“I started a family and it changed everything,” says Heigl, of adopted daughter, Naleigh, with husband Josh Kelley. “It changed my desire to work full-time.”
COMING CLEAN: As much as Katherine Heigl can, anyway.
Although she was scheduled to appear in this season’s final five episodes, that is not happening. The January 21 episode was the last we'll see of her on the hit series that basically made her huge, as she's already been on three-month maternity leave.
“I know I’m disappointing the fans,” she says of her contentious, immature departure. “I just had to make a choice. I hope I made the right one.”
One way to redeem herself to some fans ASAP?
