“Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo is thankful to still be on the hit ABC show, playing Dr. Meredith Grey, and talks about her reasons for sticking with the hospital drama for eight seasons after watching both Isaiah Washington and Katherine Heigl exit.an interview with the NY Post which highlighted the show’s 200th episode, Pompeo said of Heigl, "Hurt feelings, combined with instant success and huge paychecks, started things spinning out of control. The crazier things got, as I watched all the tumult with Isaiah and then the Katie thing, I started to focus on the work. Maybe it is my Boston, blue-collar upbringing. I just tried to not pay attention to all the noise around me."
