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.
