Katherine Heigl: Seriously, Why?
In a way, I’m even more confounded by Katherine Heigl‘s popularity than I am Hayden Panetierre‘s–and that’s saying a lot. Yes, I know she just won an Emmy for “Grey’s Anatomy” and yes, I know she was in “Knocked Up,” which was, like, the funniest movie to have ever been made. Not that I’d know; know why? Because I didn’t see it–and I didn’t see it because Katherine Heigl was in it.
Sorry, this woman has the air of believing far, far too much of the press releases put forth by her publicists–and is far, far too much of a famewhore for my liking. Case in point? The day after the Emmys she goes to The Ivy for lunch. Celebrities go to The Ivy for one reason and one reason only, and it’s not the crab cakes. They go because of the wall of paparazzi and guaranteed photo opportunity it provides. Want further proof this is what Katherine did? Halfway through lunch she just had to have a smoke…and went and had it in front, with the paps. Uh-huh.
There’s not a celebrity in Hollywood who doesn’t have a bit of famewhore in them (even if it’s just a smidge)–there has to be, given the line of work they’re in. But the ones I cannot stomach are the ones coasting on good luck and little talent who have that “what? you’re here for me?” attitude about them. That’s Katherine Heigl to a tee. And that’s what puts her on my list. And once you’re on my list? Good luck getting off that one.
