    the show was going down the toilet. Katherine Heigl is a good actress with a good future BUT…..she got to lay off those smokes. if she does not, good chance she meets her maker sooner than later.

    Kathy is quite the little whiner. First, she insults the movie that brought her mainstream movie appeal (Knocked Up) – and further, she insults the direction of the show that gave her career a giant kick start (Grey’s). Perhaps if she had more range than a lamp post in the acting department – they could do more with her character, and she’d get the roles the serious actresses like Kate Winslet get. Oh well, as long as her looks hold out – she’ll get the lead in vapid romantic comedies.

    Kathy – you suck.

    If she’s leaving, please kill her now Greys. Something along the lines of the great L.A. Law episode where the lawyer backed into the elevator – only there was no elevator so she fell to her death. Or she could be devoured by rabit rats. Either way works…

    And if you don’t think a lamp post could out-act Kathy – watch Roswell. She spoils the entire series with her terrible acting. I mean, how did she land Greys? Casting couch anyone??

    tell us how you reall feel…ha ha…but I must say I agree with you on the “range” she has expressed so far

    Grey’s should have quit while they were ahead

    and didn’t T.R. just recently announce the stories of him departing Grey’s were unfounded? I may be wrong, I admit none of the cast is really on my antennae…

    GA has “jumed the shark.” The crossover with “Private Practice” proves it.
    Good riddance to the two crybabies.

    oh sorry but 27 dresses was just another lame generic romantic comedy. it was OK at best. nothing special. and as far as her acting…the same thing – nothing special. i thinks she may have wanted the whole ‘it’ girl too much. i remember getting sick of hearing her say ‘i’m so lucky’. i mean, she wasn’t THAT big was she?

    well, i never said her acting was spectacular. i said i enjoyed the movie. its just fine with me if you didnt like it as much as i did, but PERSONALLY i liked 27 dresses and she was in it, so thats all i have to say about her

    Don’t care how many people call it lame or generic. I thought it was a cute, cheerful movie and, if it didn’t set out to change the world, who cares?
