Katherine Heigl Is Quitting ...

... smoking, that is, not Grey's Anatomy, which is what I really want her to quit. Maybe I could start watching that show again if I didn't have to hear Izzie's whiny little voice in every other scene.

But, anyway, T.R. Knight tells In Touch that Katie's quitting, and he's trying to be supportive. "You have to be ready and find it in yourself," he says. This isn't the first time Katie's said she's quitting, so we'll just wait and see. I have to say, though, I must have tried to quit 100 times before it actually stuck. By the end, I was telling my friends, "Oh, I quit smoking!" and they were just like "That's nice," like they didn't care or believe me at all -- and understandably so -- and that stuff just made me want to quit even more.

Meanwhile, the world of cigarette-lovin' TV docs continues to turn, with ER's Maura Tierney giving this quote about her smoking to Glamour mag:

"When I can't have one, I'm f***ed. I've found myself doing things I'm not proud of, like digging through the trash for a butt. Or smoking through bronchitis ... During a five-minute break at work, I've had to make the decision: Should I pee, or should I smoke? I've tried to do both at the same time, and it's not very satisfying."
