Rhimes 'Surprised' At Heigl's Emmy Row

GREY'S ANATOMY creator SHONDA RHIMES was surprised at KATHERINE HEIGL's refusal to submit her name for this year's (08) Emmy Awards - but didn't feel insulted by the snub.
The actress claimed writers on the hit show were not giving her enough good material and pulled herself out of the running for a gong - and rumours spread she would be axed from the show as a result.
But show creator Rhimes strongly denied the reports - and has now spoken out over the alleged row.
She tells People.com, "I didn't feel insulted. When I was told (what Heigl said) I found it surprising. I love and respect Katie as an actress. But she is outspoken."
