Reading about Katherine Heigl’s (pictured) salary dispute at Grey’s Anatomy, and the possibility of Goran Visnjic leaving ER, and the rumor that Kate Walsh’s planned Grey’s spinoff has her costars in a snit, I was struck by the following idea: Wouldn’t it be great if, as they’re casting any new series, TV producers wrote in iron-clad clauses that prevented actors from publicly discussing their contracts? I know it’s kind of counterintuitive for an entertainment journalist to advocate a gag order on the acting community, but I also long for a simpler, spoiler-free time when I could actually be surprised when a character got killed off (or written off) a show — and when I didn’t have to digest quite so much backstage drama that it eventually threatened to overshadow what unfolds in front of the cameras. Am I just burnt out by the fact that I haven’t had a single conversation for two weeks that didn’t include the names LaKisha or Melinda, or do I have a legitimate beef here, PopWatchers? Holla back!
