Katherine Heigl on the Late Show with David Letterman (7/20)
Last week on Letterman, Katherine Heigl hopped aboard the ol’ wambulance and revealed that Grey’s Anatomy producers *forced* her to work 17 hours during the cast’s first day back on set (“Our first day back was Wednesday and it was — I’m going to keep saying this because I hope it embarrasses them — a 17-hour day which I think is cruel and mean.”). Since her job consists of reading lines off a sheet of paper for millions of dollars a year and not sewing tiny buttons onto shirts for 11 cents an hour, no one gave a fuck about her whining. Fast forward to today where it was revealed that oh, hey, Katherine is a dumb bitch. From TV writer Ken Levine’s blog:
Poor Katherine Heigl. What she neglected to add was this: This “cruel” shooting schedule was only to accommodate HER and her needs. The producers graciously shuffled things around so she could go off and do promotion for her new film. Also, with union rules, the producers had to pay a ton of overtime and penalties to make this happen. The thanks they get is Katherine Heigl going on national television hoping to embarrass them.
I’m sorry but I am firmly on Katherine’s side on this one. A 17-hour workday leaves her only 7 hours to steal candy from little children. How is she supposed to eat?
