Grey's Anatomy > Katherine Heigl Says Isaiah Washington Apologized, Thanked Her After Incident > Comments Page 2
I think there are plenty of people who do believe that IW understands what he did, whether they choose to admit iit or not. I just think there are people who simply prefer to hold on to a grudge and theirs nothing you can do about people like that, other than feel sorry and pray for them.
Well, Sandra Oh is a no comment type of actress. That is not a put down in anyway, but that is a type of person who she is. And that is fine, and she was never directly involved in the controvesery. The main four have been Patrick, T.R., Katie, and Isaiah. Now IMO I felt all of them have articulated themselves well, and are thriving to move on. They answer questions, and are doing the best they can. Now whereas Sandra Oh is a "no comment" gal it doesn't mean another actress has to be. Katherine Heigl says how it is. She says how she feels, and while some said it was courageous for what she did. She says derived from frustration, furious, protection of her friend, and some liquor. I respect both gals as actresses and as a person. They do things articulate, and since Katherine puts her neck out on the line it means her quote will be microanaylzed to the next degree. Now Katherine is moving on. Patrick who commented yesterday is moving on. They are moving on, and I rather here their upfro
To an extent I think you are right about the interviewer, but the actors have some control over what questions they are asked that goes into the agreement to do the interview in the first place. For example, has anyone heard Sandra Oh say anything one way or the other about it in an interview? She talked to the interviewer in Marie Claire about the pressure of being on a hit television show and the attention that comes with it. She said some people handle it well and others drink the Kool aid. She never made one statement about the incident directly nor did she point fingers at any of her castmated. I can't imagine that she wasn't asked. Or for that matter that she doesn't have an opinion.
I also agree that pay may not be the only deal breaker in contract negotiations and that there are other aspects of it. The only thing I have heard KH complain about though was the amount of money offered which she felt did not give her the respect she deserved. Respect seemed to be tied u
From the EW article I read she was making a generalize statement. Not referring to anyone in particular.
just curious, who are the ‘women who don't just snap and say, ‘Okay, yes sir, yes ma'am,' ? is she indirectly refering to some specific actors in particular?
I've been saying it since this started. She had an agenda and we all know what that is now, but enough said. She's saying she forgives him and that's all that matter at this point. It's just time to move on.
Also, I think the reason for the 22 mil was because people wanted to see if Mer would actually die or how they would bring her back. If Denny hadn't been on the show, the ratings would still have been high. If you look back on the ratings prior to that episode, you'll see that the ratings started rising after Burke proposed to Cristina.
I agree with rayofsunshine. let her be! so she's a bit more open about the whole situation then y'all would like her to be. she didn't pick the questions the interviewers asked her! I think she's answering them politely and well spoken and just give the woman a damn break!
fyi "some kind of miracle" wasnt one of the top rated episodes it was the highest...27 million. amazing. this years finale only got 22 million...therefore we need denny to step away from the light!
Actually have to say you are wrong to a degree. When another poster said she is being consistent she is. Katie doesn't applease anyone. In fact, her noting that Isaiah thanked and apologized to her is nothing knew to me lol. In fact, I saw an interview she did way back in Feburary(during her campaign with Pedigree) that noted this same exact incident. But it was to a local news station. It didn't make headlines since it was so local to that one news station. Having it in EW actually made it headlines because it is a bigger market. With an actress like Katie she is who she is. She doesn't lie unlike another actor on the show sadly has showed and emphasized.
On the contracts there are still stuff we don't know. Sure some of it was about pay, but with contracts there are other things involved that are not money-related. For instance supposely I heard Patrick wants more time off for his racing in March. A lot is about respect, and if you are not feeling the respect you deserve than by
STOP TALKING ABOUT IT!!!!! When Kat does interviews and they ask her about it she should just say"we've moved on and you should too."
I don't know her but I am not realy liking her and I think she should just shut the heck up.
I could be wrong, but I think most of what Katherine does and says is very purposeful and designed to get her name out there and her face on television and in the news. She seized the opportunity to gain some media attention after the Golden Globes and now she has a new movie coming out. She has had quite a bit of backlash from fans of Isaiah/Burke. I think this is merely her attempt to appease the Isaiah/Burke fans who were offended by her statements because she wants them to go see her movie. It is all a business and getting your face in front of the cameras is a part of it and being likeable to the fans of the vehicle that gave you the break to begin with is important. She has ridden the bash Isaiah train for as far as it will take her and now she is trying another track. I find everything she says suspect along with her motivation for saying it.
In terms of her pay, Ellen, Patrick, Sandra, and Isaiah were credited higher than her. She is in the second tier along with TR,
I agree rayofsunshine. Since everyone knows Katie is never silent. If she replied "no comment", then honestly it would look bad and fuel to the fire. Now she really didn't say anything bad. In fact, it shows how much the cast is healing. She is getting passed it, and wants Isaiah to return. Also showing that hey Isaiah afterwards was a gentlemen at thanking her and apologizing to her. It actually show Isaiah in a good light, and to this day people want him gone :(. While Katie is talking about the healing of the show.
Patrick is more interested in racing than acting. He loves to race, and that is great. But with GA to me he is not as amused, and it shows in his acting(but that is just me). More people should be just as honest, and I read the full interview in Entertainment Weekly. The topic of Isaiah was raised by the interviewer and it moved onto another topic. I mean seriously it is, in fact, briefly mentioned. This article here is just blurbs from the actual interview itself. An
I think the problem lies with the people who conduct the interviews! I mean, what is she supposed to say, yes she can say she doesn't want to talk about, but then her silence would just fuel the imagination of those who want to know even more, so the best thing she can do, is what she ahs been doing all along! being Honest and forthcomming, and hope that sooner or later that whole ordeal will be forgotten by the entire industry! As for her contract negotiations, well yeah, if she feels she is being payed less, than she deserves, if she feels that her pay doesn't equal the quality of work she puts in, then she should fight TPTB to get that which is rightfully hers! And there is no good reason why she should be payed any less than the other actors, except Ellen Pompeo, cause she is the one trully main charachter! But other then Ellen, all actors shoud be payed the same!
seriously all this never ending old news is freaking me out. I may be wrong but it seems to me katie says things before she thinks. What is that about 'women who don't just snap and say, ‘Okay, yes sir, yes ma'am,' start to get a reputation for being difficult," ?
I don't usually have a problem with Katie and I love her character Izzy. However her comments seem out of place. It came across like she was patting herself on the back. There is no reason at this point for her comments. Maybe she should have watched how Patrick handled it during his Indy 500 interview. He addressed it without making a big deal about it and moved on.
She is so borring with this never ending story. Will she ever stop? Seems she is trying hard to stay in the limelight!!
