Katherine Heigl felt like her 'priorities were messed up' during 'Grey's Anatomy' time

By Gina DiFalco,

Katherine Heigl is defending her reputation once again ahead of her NBC show State of Affairs, as well as revealing the real reason she left ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy in 2010.

Her daughters with husband Josh Kelley; Naleigh, 5, and Adalaide, 2, are her priority. She explained that Naleigh was just eight months old when she decided to leave the show after five years.

"I would come home angry and frustrated that I'd missed everything with my kid that day. I felt like my priorities were messed up,” she told Good Housekeeping. "I was putting so much time and energy into just my work, but I was raised [to believe] that family comes first."

Heigl went on to defend herself against her critics, mainly commenting on her reputation of being difficult to work with.

"I'm a decent person doing the best I can," she said. "I would never intentionally be rude or disrespectful to anybody—but if I am, then it's my responsibility to make the situation right. And I've gotten pretty good at apologies, because I've had to make them throughout my life!"

Heigl and Kelley enjoy a “quieter” family life at home on their ranch, but will soon be back in Los Angeles while Heigl works on her new television series State of Affairs.
