Shonda Rhimes vs. Katherine Heigl
It looks like there’s another celebrity feud brewing in Hollywood, only this time it involves Shonda Rhimes and Katherine Heigl. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the “Scandal” showrunner put Heigl on blast. In the interview, Rhimes admitted that she learned a lot of important lessons from working with the actress years ago on “Grey’s Anatomy”. After all, you may recall that Heigl famously dissed the show back in 2007 when she asked for her name to be withdrawn from Emmys consideration.
So, what exactly did Rhimes say? Well, while discussing how she currently runs a tight ship on the “Scandal” set, Rhimes commented that she has a “no a–holes” policy in place. She went on to say, “There are no Heigls in this situation…I don’t put up with bulls–t or nasty people. I don’t have time for it.” Yikes. Rhimes was definitely not holding back with this interview. Personally, I don’t know too much about either star, but I have to say that I take Rhimes side here.
Of course, none of us really know what happened on the set of “Grey’s Anatomy” but it definitely does not surprise me that Heigl acted like a diva during her time on the show. For years, there have been rumors that Heigl has been hard to work with. Come on now, asking for your name to be removed from any Emmy consideration because you didn’t feel the material you were given is worthy of an award is a slap in the face to everyone who works so hard on the series that made you a star. Without “Grey’s Anatomy” on her resume, it is very doubtful that Heigl would even be where she is today. I don’t know about you, but that is the only reason I even know who she is.
So, whose side are you taking here? Should Rhimes have called out Heigl publicly in her interview or should she just keep her dirty laundry to herself? Let me know what you are thinking!
