Katherine Heigl about to learn why you don’t piss off your writers

By: The Superficial / July 17, 2008

After dropping out of the Emmy race and announcing she “wasn’t given the material to warrant a nomination,” Katherine Heigl basically shit in the corn flakes of the Grey’s Anatomy writers. And now they’re striking back:

*Spoiler Alert*

HER CHARACTER GETS A BRAIN TUMOR.

*End spoiler.*

Did I do that right? Us Weekly reports:

“[Producer] Shonda [Rhimes] and the writers are pissed at her,” the source tells Us. “It’s their way of screwing with her. She won’t know whether she’s going to live or die.”

While I admire the writers for exacting their revenge, I’m a little disappointed. A brain tumor? (Oh, shit. SPOILER!) I mean, is that the best they can do? I was hoping for something along the lines of Katherine’s character falling in love with Osama bin Laden. Together they try to make things work while balancing their careers. (He’s a terrorist; she’s a doctor. Wacky!) And, of course, there’d be several subplots where it’s revealed her character hates puppies, freedom and the laughter of children. I should really write a pilot.
