Shonda Rhimes is a brilliant woman – she created Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, after all – and she’s worked hard to get where she is. She’s probably had to put up with a lot of bullshit during her time in the business, but there’s one thing she simply won’t put up with: Katherine Heigl‘s nasty ass.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Although her perfectionist tendencies coupled with Scandal‘s breakneck story pace can wreak havoc on deadlines — “We’re always behind,” she admits — the operation runs smoothly and the cast is tight-knit. “There are no Heigls in this situation,” she says, choosing her words carefully. She adds later of her “no assholes” policy: “I don’t put up with bullshit or nasty people. I don’t have time for it.”
LOL, get it, Shonda. People have been pointing out how much of a miserable bitch Katherine Heigl is for years (and yes, I call men bitches, too, so I’m not being “anti-feminist” or anything of the sort. You act like a bitch, you get called a bitch. I’m an equal opportunity bitch-caller!) and frankly, it’s good to have confirmation from someone who formerly employed her. So not only did her co-workers think she was awful, but her boss did, too. Glowing reviews there, Heigl. No wonder you’ve been out begging for money.
Frankly, I don’t know how she dares walk around like her shit doesn’t stink. Did no one ever teach her that you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar? My grandparents used to tell me that shit on the daily. When you’re trying to make a name for yourself in the public eye, you can at least PRETEND to be a decent person if you can’t actually manage to be genuine about it. I can’t wait for her new show to get cancelled, too.
