Katherine Heigl Caused “Cruel” 17 Hour Workday

Katherine Heigl is a Hypocrite

I never watched Grey’s Anatomy, so I feel I’m sort of on the outside looking in with the whole Heigl hate train. Don’t get me wrong– I get it. But I just don’t feel the fires of Heigl rage as fervently as some of you. *cough*Wendie*cough*

However, I might be ready to climb aboard if she keeps giving everyone such easy reasons to dislike her (as if her new movie weren’t enough).

Last week, while making the talk show  rounds to promote her odiously misogynistic new film The Ugly Truth, Heigl complained about the length of her first day back on the Grey’s set, saying that the day had lasted 17 hours and that she hoped the studio was embarrassed  for putting the cast & crew through something so “cruel and mean.”

But it turns out that the person responsible for that grueling 17 hour day was…. Katherine Heigl!

A source on the Grey’s set spilled the beans to TV writer Kevin Levine:

Poor Katherine Heigl. What she neglected to add was this: This ‘cruel’ shooting schedule was only to accommodate HER and her needs. The producers graciously shuffled things around so she could go off and do promotion for her new film. Also, with union rules, the producers had to pay a ton of overtime and penalties to make this happen. The thanks they get is Katherine Heigl going on national television hoping to embarrass them.”

If you’d like to hop on the Heigl hate wagon, now might be an opportune time.

Original Futurama Cast Reaches Agreement with Fox

Futurama 2008 Comic-Con Panel

And now, some news that does not suck.

The entire voice cast of Futurama has just signed a new contract with Fox!

After weeks of stalled negotiations, Fox had announced that they would be replacing all the voice actors with a new cast. Much weeping, rending of garments, and gnashing of teeth ensued.

But the studio and the actors managed to reach a compromise agreement on Friday that would see the studio paying a bit more and the actors accepting a bit less.

Creators Groening and David X. Cohen  released a joint statment saying, “We are thrilled to have our incredible cast back. The call has already gone out to the animators to put the mouths back on the characters.”

I hereby release Fox from all contractual obligations to bite my shiny metal ass.

15 Year Old Tallulah Belle Willis Gets Trashed at Scout’s Birthday Party

Tallulah Belle Willis, Trashed and Hitting on an Older Man at Scout Willis' 18th Birthday Party

At a rowdy 18 year old’s birthday party, you might expect the restaurant or the ladies bathroom to get trashed, but not the birthday girl’s 15 year old sister.

The Moore – Kutcher – Willis clan got together this past Friday night to celebrate Scout Willis’ 18th birthday with a 20′s flapper-style bash at L.A. restaurant Cicada. Guests included Dita Von Teese, Marisa Tomei, and Rumer Willis, doing her best to let everyone know exactly what kind of underwear she was wearing.

But the real star of the night was the youngest Willis girl, Tallulah Belle, who spent the night smoking, drinking, and hitting on older men. She reportedly ended the night by stumbling out of the restaurant with a pack of cigarettes and a pack of her friends, who attempted to keep her upright on her walk of shame to a waiting vehicle. Step dad of the year, Ashton Kutcher, looked none to happy about it either.

Now, to be honest, the drink the paps have circled in the above picture looks like nothing more than ice water– which may be damning enough evidence in itself, since no one drinks ice water at a party unless they’ve already gone overboard with the alcohol. If you’re going strictly non-alcoholic, you’ll have either soda, or juice, or a Redbull in your glass.

She’s also shoeless– another likely sign of inebriation– and in the pictures of her leaving the restaurant, she is quite clearly carrying a pack of cigarettes.
