Grey's Anatomy's Shonda Rhimes is speaking up on the rumors that Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are on their way out of Seattle Grace.
"That was a very interesting rumor," the Grey's creator told People.com at the NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles last night. "And it's not true."
So what about what castmate James Pickens Jr. said about the departure of George and Izzie?
"That was absolutely taken out of context," Shonda said. "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," she reiterated.
Damage control or the truth? You decide.
