ABC: Katherine Heigl Not Going Anywhere

by at . Comments
The Lovely KatieWe are pleased to report that the lovely Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens will, in fact, continue to call Seattle Grace Hospital home for the foreseeable future.

Following previous reports to the contrary, ABC has issued a statement to Grey's Anatomy fans, assuring them that actress Katherine Heigl is not planning on leaving the show - and that she is indeed being compensated for all her hard work.

"Katherine is an integral part of Grey's Anatomy and its success," the statement reads. "Fortunately, we have a long-term contract to ensure she'll be with the show for several years to come. In recognition of her tremendous talent and value to the show, we recently approached Katherine with an offer to raise her compensation significantly above the terms of her current contract. We were surprised to see this gesture reported negatively in the press, and want to reassure fans that she will continue as Izzie Stevens."

The statement follows report earlier this week that Katherine Heigl, 28, had walked out of contract negotiations on the show. We're thrilled to see that she and the producers have reached an agreement and that the young starlet will be gracing our Seattle hospital's halls for years to come.

I am so happy to hear this. This is a great group and hate to see any of them leave. I also hope the show is on for a long time.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
