Motherhood: Is That Why Katherine Heigl Quit Greys Anatomy?


It’s been confirmed. Katherine Heigl is officially leaving Grey’s Anatomy. There has been oodles of speculation on why Katherine would quit the popular hit show. Many thought she left the show so she could pull a George Clooney…leaving a hit hospital based drama to become a movie mega star. But she says the reason she left is…

Because she wants to spend more time and focus her attentions on her 16-month-old daughter Naleigh.  She told Entertainment Weekly that, “I started a family and it changed everything for me,” says Heigl, who took a three-month leave after welcoming her baby girl. “It changed my desire to work full-time.”

And being able to also focus her attention on her big screen work is another, albeit less important, motive.
