Katherine Heigl Not Leaving Grey's Anatomy (Yet)

at . Comments

Katherine Heigl came under fire after saying she pulled out of Emmy Awards consideration because Grey's Anatomy didn't give her enough material.

But a new report from Life & Style claims that the popular and outspoken TV and film actress seemed unfazed by all the recent hoopla.

As she watched her husband, singer Josh Kelley, perform at Los Angeles' Hotel Cafe on June 20, Heigl had nothing but good things to say.

Asked if she's returning to the show next season, Katherine told Life & Style, "Of course, absolutely. Those people are like my family."

Katherine Heigl Waves

Heigl isn't waving goodbye to Grey's Anatomy just yet.

The report notes that while Katherine Heigl didn't specifically address the controversy over her remarks, she was positive about the show's writers.

She also had praise for her work environment and castmates, telling the entertainment magazine that "It's so funny because we have such serious material to perform, and then we spend the whole day joking around."

It'll be no laughing matter, though, if Heigl eventually does exit the show. But the Grey's Anatomy producers are prepared in the event she does.

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.
