Everyone knows Katherine Heigl by now. She's the hot (and full of hot air) Grey's Anatomy star. The tall, blonde one with the amazing...

Katherine Heigl is suing Duane Reade over a picture the drug store company posted on Twitter of the star leaving one of its locations in New York City.

The former Grey's Anatomy star no one likes or wants to work with anymore says the company is using her image in promotional materials without consent.

What do those "promotional materials" consist of? Get this ...

A Katherine Heigl Picture

Heigl claims in her lawsuit that she was coming out of a drug store in NYC last month, when a celebrity gossip photographer snapped her with a Duane Reade bag.

Katherine was "horrified" to learn that the company tweeted: "Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KatieHeigl can't resist shopping #NYC's favorite drugstore."

The lawsuit says the company is exploiting the 35-year-old actress' image for commercial gain despite her objection, and seeks $6 million in damages.

The best part (beyond the fact that she thinks it would help, not hurt, Duane Reade to see her spotted on the premises), is this line from her court filing:

Brandi Glanville became a New York Times bestselling author thanks to last year's buzzworthy Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders.

Her latest, Drinking and Dating: P.S. Social Media Is Ruining Romance, is also heating things up - so much so that her books are getting made into a movie!

“We have an offer, but we’re trying to shop it around a little,” The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star revealed on her latest Podcast One show.

As for who Brandi would like to portray her on screen? Katherine Heigl!

Her reasoning includes the fact that no one likes Heigl ... or herself.

“I know people don’t like her, but I think Katherine Heigl is adorable. She’s unlikable, but you always want someone a little prettier than you to play you ... and she’s way prettier."

Glanville’s guest, Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger weighed in:

Katherine Heigl's career is not what it used to be. The actress is set to star in the independent film Jenny's Wedding ... provided it can get funding.

Producers for the Mary Agnes Donoghue-directed project have created an Indiegogo campaign, asking for donations to reach a goal of $150,000.

"How's the funding going?" TMZ asked the former Grey's Anatomy star. "If your movie doesn't getting the funding ... would you be willing to fill in the extra amount?"

"I haven't made that much in the last few years, man," said Heigl, who has two little kids with her husband Josh Kelley. "I gotta support my family."

According to the San Francisco-based crowdfunding site, Katherine's would-be film has only raised $32,311 so far since it started on February 11.

Katherine Heigl is not a sought-after actress in Hollywood these days, according to a new report, with film and TV insiders saying she's a giant pain.

A source who worked with her on 2010's Life As We Know It described to THR some "desperately difficult situations" with Heigl on the movie set.

"She can cost you time every single day of shooting," the source said. "Wardrobe issues, not getting out of the trailer, questioning the script every single day."

Making matters worse, THR says, is her mother and manager Nancy Heigl, who has worked closely with her daughter since her days as a child model.

"I have never experienced anything like Nancy Heigl," says the source.

She didn't exactly leave Grey's Anatomy on the best terms, throwing writers of that show under the hospital-based bus for not providing her with sufficient Emmy material.

She then left to make terrible movies (One for the Money? Seriously?!?).

But now a new report alleges that Katherine Heigl is looking to make a return to the small screen, pitching a procedural to the networks that would be written/produced by Alexi Hawley (Body of Proof, Castle).

If picked up, it would be placed on the 2014-2015 schedule.

Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley have welcomed a new baby.

The couple, already parents to a three-year-old daughter, Naleigh, whom they adopted from South Korea, have welcomed a second child, who is also adopted!

“Yes they have adopted a baby,” Jill Fritzo, who represents the former Grey's Anatomy actress, confirmed. “No further details [are available] at this time.”

Katherine Heigl, Family

Katherine Heigl, whose sister Meg was adopted, says that adoption was always the plan for a family with her singer-songwriter husband, whom she wed in 2007.

“Josh and I started talking about it before we were even engaged,” the actress, 33, said back in January. “We have talked about having biological children as well, but we both decided to adopt first, and I’d like to adopt again.”

And they have! Congratulations to the happy, growing family!

Feud alert! Christi Lukasiak, one of the mothers on Dance Moms, did not take kindly to Katherine Heigl's criticism of the show, and is firing back with a vengeance.

In an interview with Pittsburgh's 100.7 Star, the hosts asked Christi what she thought about Heigl's Dance Moms diss, in which the actress criticized the Lifetime show as "demeaning," "belittling" to the girls and akin to "burlesque."

Chloe's mom gave her a piece of her mind...

Heigl and dance Mom

"Well, very interesting," Lukasiak said of the former Grey's Anatomy star. "First of all, the music doesn't seem all that adult. Second of all, I recall Katherine Heigl being in a movie about sleeping with an older man when she was about 12, so..."

Oooh, that one stings!

"And she doesn't know that when I put my daughter to bed at night, you know, like, we have a long talk, and the kind of relationship I have with her," Lukasiak adds.

"I don't let anybody mess with my kid. C'mon, have you seen the show? I'm constantly going to bat. I think if anybody fights for their kid, it's me, you know?"

Christi also shoots down any idea that she and the other mothers are "exploiting" kids, and instead argues that they are giving their girls a great opportunity.

"Katherine Heigl can suck it," radio host Bubba chimed in, emphatically. "Yeah, that's what I say, but you said it, not me. I'm just agreeing," Christi said.

Back to you, Katherine ...

Katherine Heigl has beef with Lifetime's series Dance Moms.

In her weekly iVillage blog post, the 33-year-old actress and mother of a three-year-old daughter slams the popular show for sending inappropriate messages to young girls.

"I watched with open-mouthed amazement as girls as young as seven were encouraged to dress provocatively and shimmy around a stage doing a dance performance that could just as easily been a burlesque routine," she writes.

Wonder if she's seen Toddlers & Tiaras.

Heigl on Today

"I kept thinking all these girls were missing is a pole! I was also horrified by the way their instructor spoke to them when she felt they weren't up to snuff," Heigl writes.

"It was demeaning, belittling, and downright unkind."

"There is no reason to break anyone down in order to prepare them for inevitable disappointment or unkindness. There is no reason to diminish anyone's self-esteem in order to get them to try harder next time. Especially not a child's."

The One For the Money star is bothered by "the amount of value we place on a woman's looks, body and ability to drop it like it's hot on the dance floor."

"It's one thing to walk into a club and see 20-somethings embracing their sexuality and having fun, but it's another thing altogether watching 7-year-olds."

Katherine Heigl is not only open to a return to Grey's Anatomy, she admits she's proactively asked if she can reprise her long-gone character, Dr. Izzie Stevens.

Surprising, after leaving the series on a bitter note two years ago after more than one public spat with its producers and ABC. But now she'd welcome a return.

Seriously. The One For the Money star said in a recent interview:

"I've told them I want to I don't know... Being a showrunner and being a writer of a TV series like that is so complicated ... how many characters are there now?"

"She's balancing about 40 different storylines, so I don't know if it fits in to their sort of vision for this season or next or however many seasons it goes."

"I really, really, really want to see where [Izzie] is. I just want to know what happened to her and where she went and what she's doing now," she adds.

"My idea is that she actually like figures it out, and finds some success at a different hospital. She was always floundering, always one step behind the eight ball."

"I want to see that girl take some power back."

Would you like to see Heigl on Grey's Anatomy again?
