Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight Not Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy' Insists Shonda Rhimes

By Rich King on February 13, 2009

LOS ANGELES — It appears Seattle Grace Hospital will not be losing a few key staff members after all.

"Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes is squashing rumors that Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are leaving the hit ABC series.

"It's not true," insisted Rhimes Thursday night during an interview with People at the 40th Annual NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles.

Rumors about the pair leaving the show surfaced earlier this week when Us Weekly caught up with fellow castmember James Pickens. When asked if Heigl was leaving, Pickens replied: "Yes, she is," before adding that Knight is "going too."

"That was absolutely taken out of context,” Rhimes told People. "Things happen, and … I think rumors become fact very easily. And you know I don’t like to tell you what's going to happen on the show — but that is a rumor."

Pickens, who plays Dr. Richard Webber on the show, told People that his comments simply came out the wrong way.

"When the question was posed to me, I was more trying to congratulate Katie and T.R. on whatever they were going to do," he explained. "But yeah, I don't have any special info about it either way."
