How far has Heigl fallen? She has frequently suggested the idea of a return to Grey's Anatomy. Despite a certain ratings bump, Rhimes has not taken her up on the offer. Apparently that parting wasn’t so amicable after all.
Lebeau, "What the Hell Happened to Katherine Heigl?"

See, this is why TV world is so much better than the real world. In the real world, when one of your co-workers eats the last of your Pop-Tarts from the staff room, you can’t do shit besides silently cursing them out at your desk. But in TV world, all it takes is a trip to the writer’s room with a post-it note reading: …and then that snack-stealing asshole is abducted by aliens and never seen again. Problem solved!
DListed, "Shonda’s face lighting up when thinking about all the hos she’s sent to the unemployment line"

If you didn’t know that Faye Dunaway was supposed to play Katharine Hepburn in the one-woman show Tea at Five on Broadway, I have some shocking news that’ll tip you over. Producers of a Broadway-bound show actually hired Faye Dunaway to do a live play eight times a week and work with others. But in some not-so-shocking news that’ll steady your ass once again, Faye Dunaway was fired and the reason was because she pulled several Faye Dunaways... The producers announced in a short statement that they have “terminated” their “relationship” with Faye Dunaway, and I’m wondering how many “fucks” and “evil bitch devils” were in their original draft.

The fact was that Denise Crosby, the actress playing Tasha Yar, was promised a hard as brass balls role and as often as not wound up with acting directions that amounted to 'Jog down the corridor without a bra.' But rather than deal with it through her agent or grit her teeth and remember that at least she wasn't wearing a cleavage-heavy dress like the ship's counselor, rumor has it Crosby took her ire straight to the writers. It wasn't the wisest of moves.

Real Life

“It got to a place where I said, 'I’ve had enough!' … So we let her go. She tried to leave with some of the clothes from the movie, and we had a very tough producer who got the clothes back, and I heard she was in the streets of East Hampton, furious, and walking around half-naked."

“She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven said, ‘Fire her right now.'”
Michael Bay on firing Megan Fox. (Spielberg denies the Hitler comparison had anything to do with her dismissal.)

"You simply can’t work with him now. He’s radioactive.”
—Anonymous studio head on Johnny Depp

Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.

I've been fired from my Cartoon Show, lost my endorsements and my chance of ever being booked by any music venue as Unknown Hinson ever again. I just hope you assholes are happy you took a good Man and talent down. You succeeded. Be proud that you ruined a person's life all because of the Freak Show called "Dolly Parton and BLM". Thanks a lot. I gave my best to you assholes for over 30 years. I guess you just love to kick someone when they're down. That's so twisted and perverted. Again, thanks! I'll remember you bastards!"
Unknown Hinson's Facebook meltdown after public backlash to his offensive comments towards Dolly Parton and Black Lives Matter got him effectively blacklisted from the industry
