Shonda Rhimes Won’t Tolerate Heigls

Shonda Rhimes talked to The Hollywood Reporter and told them she runs a tight ship nowadays. She has no room for assholes.

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.”

It took a while of laying low for Katherine Heigl to get another show so it’s probably a good idea for her not to respond to this. Getting work in Hollywood for a woman is hard enough. Getting work when you had a string of recent box office bombs and a history of bad-mouthing the people you worked with is nearly impossible.
