Katherine Heigl has been a bit low on money, as we all know, and apparently the bank account must REALLY be running dry and it’s time to resort to new measures to get the cash flow back up again, so she’s suing Duane Reade drugstores for $6 million. HAHA!
From The Wrap:
“Grey’s Anatomy” alum Heigl has filed a $6 million lawsuit against New York-based pharmacy chain Duane Reade, claiming that the company is illegally using her photo to for commercial gain.
According to the suit, filed in federal court in New York on Thursday, Duane Reade used a paparazzi shot of Heigl leaving a Duane Reade store and put the shot up on the company’s Facebook and Twitter accounts to “imply falsely that Plaintiff endorses Defendant.”
In one instance, the lawsuit alleges, Duane Reade posted a tweet of the photo with the message, “Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KateHeigl can’t resist shopping #NYC’s favorite drugstore.”
Haha, WHAT? I can’t. So Duane Reade tweeted a picture of Katherine shopping in their stores and now they’re gaining from her? Sorry, but homegirl has a rather elevated idea of her influence. Knowing she goes to Duane Reade isn’t going to make me want to go there, to be honest – in fact, I’d probably be LESS likely to shop there (and truth be told, my apartment is closer to a Walgreen’s, anyway), so she needs to calm down.
This whole thing just screams desperation.

Not very long ago, Katherine Heigl asked for your (financial) help to get her film, Jenny’s Wedding, off the ground. That was bad enough, because celebrities asking the public to fund a movie that they then would have to go pay to SEE is fucking stupid. However, now she’s taken it to the next level and is talking to the press all about how little money she’s made in the past several years and she has mouths to feed. Oh, brother.
Katherine Heigl’s hit hard times … telling us she needs to hang onto every penny and is in NO position to donate cash to finish her new movie.
Here’s the thing … Hollywood hasn’t exactly been beating down Katherine’s door since she foolishly left “Grey’s Anatomy” and trash talked Judd Apatow’s movie — she even admits it in this clip.
So now she’s counting on a crowd funding campaign to raise $150,000 to complete her indie film “Jenny’s Wedding” — and makes it clear she won’t be pitching in because she just ain’t got it like that anymore.
So… she wants YOU to pay for HER movie that SHE won’t even donate money to. SMH… the audacity! Anyway, it’s a Katherine Heigl movie, which means it’ll tank anyway. How about ALL of us hang on to our pennies whether we can spare them or not?

Katherine Heigl is asking you for money. She’s looking to raise funds for her film Jenny’s Wedding, and she’s doing it via Indiegogo. Like Kickstarter, Indiegogo uses crowdfunding to help people reach their goals to fund their projects. Some celebs, like Zach Braff, have had success with this method. Others have failed. Melissa Joan Hart couldn’t raise enough money, nor could Zosia Mamet.
Here’s a video of Katherine Heigl explaining the project and why you should back it. Would you?

Katherine Heigl somehow managed to make herself one of the most hated celebs in Hollywood in the few years she spent on Grey’s Anatomy (and in Knocked Up, which was okay except for her), but get yourself ready because she’s coming back to TV in some new CIA drama for NBC.
From TV Line:
The untitled project, to be written by Alexi Hawley (The Following), finds Heigl playing a key CIA analyst whose job it is to debrief and strategize with the president on the most pressing global and national matters. She balances this incredibly high stakes job and trusted relationship with her complicated personal life.
Rodney Faraon, who has debriefed several US presidents, will serve as an EP on the project.
“The story is not only compelling and intelligent but a look behind the curtain at the CIA we haven’t seen before in film or television,” Heigl said in a statement. “I am thrilled and honored to have been asked to be a part of developing these stories and this character and bringing it all to life. NBC has been a true partner in their passion and support for the show that we’ve dreamed of making and I could not be happier about joining forces with them. Together, with our brilliant writer Alexi Hawley, I believe we are going to make great television!”
I probably will never watch even the opening credits to this show, but she’s got a kid so I guess she’s gotta pay the bills. Will you watch this? Do you think Katherine Heigl is THE WORST or only kinda the worst?
