What Now, Katherine Heigl?

I used to be a big Katherine Heigl fan, but her nonsensical outbursts as of late are exhausting me. First, there was b*tching and moaning about the writing on Grey’s Anatomy. Fine.

Then she started wah-wahhhing about 17-hour days on-set. My apologies, Katherine. You have the schedule of a school teacher, and yet you’re paid roughly twenties times their annual salary.

Deadline Hollywood reported today on Heigl’s latest antics. She’s on the PR merry-go-round, so to speak. Firing, hiring. Being fired.

The Killers actress was repped by a NY-based PR rep for six years but recently decided to go with an LA-based rep, Melissa Kates.

A company merger occurred, and Kates went out on her own (Heigl followed). Six weeks later, Kates fires Heigl, which is very uncharacteristic of a PR rep starting her own company.

“‘PR people rarely resign from accounts,’ one long-time publicist told me, ‘especially when starting their own company, and the client in question is a legitimate movie star.”

Then Heigl went with a PR rep who did massive damage control on her EW cover (turning it into a more of an explanation rather than a takedown).

Well wouldn’t you know it, Heigl fires this one. Now she’s back with her NY-based rep. Full circle. I’m dizzy.
