Katherine Heigl Would Like Shonda Rhimes’ Approval Back Now, Please

  • Katherine Heigl told Mario Lopez that she’s sorry that her former “Grey’s Anatomy” boss Shonda Rhimes “is left with such a crappy impression of me” and that she watches Rhimes’ other show, “Scandal,” every week. She also said that her reputation for being difficult on set “took some stomaching and having to just go, ‘Okay there’s nothing I can do about this except to sort of prove it wrong,’ you know, and the only way for me to prove it wrong is for people to have a work experience with me that doesn’t speak to that at all.” Go, girl. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt (I think). [Jezebel]
  • The mother of 26-year-old Elaine Burton, Charles Manson’s fiance, is “concerned” about her daughter but believes that Manson truly does love her. “It’s a different situation. But my daughter is smart. She plans out what she wants to do.” Yeah, I really have no idea what to do with that. [ABC]

“Grey’s Anatomy” Cast Members Are “Orange Is The New Black” Fans Just Like The Rest Of Us

The “Grey’s Anatomy” cast had a little fun on set dressing up as the cast of “Orange Is The New Black,” with Sara Ramirez working it as Alex Vause and Ellen Pompeo as Tricia. No, this is not their subtle way of announcing some kind of bizarre onscreen crossover (thankfully!), but it’s pretty adorable. [BuzzFeed]

Live Tweet With Us (And Say Farewell To Cristina!) During Tonight’s “Grey’s Anatomy” Season Finale

The tears will come, my friends, and they will be plentiful. Tonight marks the Season 10 finale of “Grey’s Anatomy,” and I, for one, am dreading saying goodbye to Cristina Yang. The show has had some pretty memorable exits from fan favorites like George, Izzy, Lexie, Denny (OMG tears for days) and Mark to name a few, but THIS one … ugh. This one will be brutal. Not only has Cristina, played by the talented Sandra Oh, been a series regular from the very beginning, but she’s become “our person.” We love her snark, wit and brains, and WHAT WILL MEREDITH DO WITHOUT HER?!

Thankfully, as emotionally unprepared as I am for this episode, I’ll have all of the Twitterverse to lean on (if I can even see what’s going on through my snot face).

At 9 p.m. EST, tune in to “Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC and be sure to follow The Frisky on Twitter if you’re not already! Use the hashtag #MyPerson to join in on our (and the world’s) conversation about the episode.

See you then…and bring the scalpel. It will be needed to remove my aching heart.

Cristina Yang Is Leaving “Grey’s Anatomy” And I Am So Not Emotionally Prepared

You're My Person

Is anybody on this earth still watching “Grey’s Anatomy” besides me? It still rakes in fairly decent ratings, so I know there are at least a few of you out there. How devastated are you that Sandra Oh (aka our beloved Cristina Yang) is leaving the series? The show will have a massive hole in it without her, but I’m begrudgingly okay with it, in some sort of “circle of life” way. Sandra is off to bigger and better things, and her departure is just one more sign that “Grey’s” is no longer the show it once was. It has a new cast trickling in, and even though the series will never be as epic as the first few seasons, that’s totally okay. “Grey’s Anatomy” had to adapt to stay afloat, even if that meant losing some of the sparkle it had in the very beginning.

Can Television Have More Shonda Rhimes Please?

Frustrating as it is, racism in Hollywood is still prevalent in 2013. When USA Today explored the absence of Black women in Hollywood this week, they highlighted the approach behind the racial diversity that can be found on “Grey’s Anatomy” — color-blind casting. Linda Lowy, the casting director behind the oh-so-addictive hospital drama created by Shonda Rhimes, explained, “When I cast the pilot of ‘Grey’s,’ Shonda didn’t give anybody a last name. She just said, ‘Linda, I want you to cast it the way you see the world.’” Usually casting notices come with descriptions like “White male, late 30s to early 50s, musclar” or “Asian female, any age, must look 15 to 17.” But with little physical description or race tied to the casting of the characters, the opportunities for more equality expanded in a major way.

Katherine Heigl Eats Crow To Get Her “Grey’s Anatomy” Gig Back

Some people remember Katherine Heigl from her days on the show “Roswell.” But the grand majority got to know the actress as Dr. Izzie Stevens on”Grey’s Anatomy,” a role which won her the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in 2007. (The film “Knocked Up” helped solidify her reputation that year, too.) But Heigl did not make too many friends when, in 2008, she pulled herself out of Emmy consideration, saying, “I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination.”

Two years later, she left the show. “I am done,” she said at the time. “It’s sad but it’s what I wanted.”

Fast forward to the present. I was interested to read an interview with Heigl today, in which she is eating some serious crow trying to get her old job back.

“I really, really, really want to see where [Izzie] is,” Heigl tells E! News. Keep reading »
