Grey's Anatomy Producers to Kill Izzie?

at . Comments

Note the question mark. This is not confirmed.

But there's no mistaking the latest buzz hissing from the set of the ABC hit is that Grey's Anatmy creator Shonda Rhimes may be entertaining the idea of killing off Katherine Heigl's Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens. Why?

Lest we forget, Heigl took herself out of the running for this year's Emmy Awards, declining to even submit her name for consideration because she felt the writers failed to give her enough good material in Season 4.

"It's not good," a source on the Grey's Anatomy set told E! Online. "Shonda is pissed. They're thinking of killing her off. They want Izzie dead."

Izzie Gonna Make It?

While a dead Izzie may still not happen, it would be a bit ironic, as Grey's Anatomy insiders have long speculated that Heigl wants off the show.

Going public with her Emmy complaint only increased speculation that she wants out of her contract to focus on her film career, which is red hot.

A rep for Shonda Rhimes said, "I haven't heard anything about that." Reps for both Katherine Heigl and ABC declined to comment on the subject.

What do you think? Is it time for Izzie to check out? And does Katherine Heigl have what it takes to leave Grey's Anatomy behind?

izzie's removal from the program would appear as thought she is being penalized for speaking out/ taking a position. Who is going to be next.......a program filled with "yes " actors. It will be the last time I will watch this or any other program put on by ABC

IZZIE MUST LIVE.. everyone i know LOVES HER.. and watches GA because of her, if u kill her.. i wont watch.. and so.. will ALL OF THE IZZIE-HOLICS .. abc's call...


PLease dont kill Isabelle Stevens or George o'malie !!


Issy and George both NEED TO REMAIN. They bring so much personality to the series. DEFINITELY need to DROP the lesian section. If that means to get rid of the actresses, so be it. When that portion of the series started, seriously was evaluating dropping the show. It is just too much and certainly ruins the show!!!!


DON'T KILL IZZIE she and the other characters make a simple but accurate way of making and extraordinary form of an icon, each one of them has fans not only because of there looks it's because people feel identified with them and how they develop in the rare situations they are put in working as a team if one desapears the show will colaps


Keep Izzie. she is the best along with merder, george, cristina, callie, lexie, alex, miranda and the chief

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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
