Shonda Rhimes Refuses to Work With Assholes Like Katherine Heigl


In a recent profile in The Hollywood Reporter, the showrunner/QUEEN behind the hit shows Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder basically said that Katherine Heigl is an asshole:

Although [Rhimes’] perfectionist tendencies coupled with Scandal‘s breakneck story pace can wreak havoc on deadlines — “We’re always behind,” she admits — the operation runs smoothly and the cast is tight-knit. “There are no Heigls in this situation,” she says, choosing her words carefully. She adds later of her “no assholes” policy: “I don’t put up with bullshit or nasty people. I don’t have time for it.”

(Emphasis ours.)

Heigl, as you may recall, left Grey’s Anatomy on a sour note in 2010, telling reporters that she didn’t like the material that Rhimes had written for her. After a brief movie career, she is back on television, but will forever be denied entry into Shondaland.

Hilary Duff told Andy Cohen that her former boyfriend Aaron Carter makes her “uncomfortable” when he hounds her on Twitter. The pair dated when they were young teens and, while they haven’t seen each other for years, he continues to tell the world that Duff is the love of his life.

Time to move on, Aaron. As the adage goes, it’s better to have loved, lost and had a cameo on Lizzie McGuire than to never have loved at all. [E!]
