In a the press tour session “Grey’s Anatomy”‘s Steve McPherson reveiled that the show creator Shonda Rhimes has a great story line planned for Katherine Heigl.
In addition, Shonda tells she wasn’t insulted by Katherine Heigl’s comment.
Q: Shonda, with her statement, Heigl insulted the writers, essentially? How did that make you feel?
A: She insulted the writers? Did she?
A: I don’t think that’s insulting the writers per se. There’s two things: The first half of season she had a very strong story line with George that played out more comedically. The second half, Katherine asked me to write her light so that she could work on her movie.
Q: But what was your reaction?
A: I didn’t feel insulted.
Shonda told at ABC’s TCA Summer Press Tour, that Izzie is one of her favorite characters, too.
