Katherine Heigl Comes Clean on Hot Tub Hullabaloo

Katherine Heigl feuds with neighbor as "Life As We Know It" hits theaters.

Oct. 15, 2010 — -- She may be a romantic comedy go-to, but in real life, Katherine Heigl doesn't always get a lot of love.

In interviews with Ryan Seacrest and Jimmy Kimmel, the "Life As We Know It" star came clean about her recent feud with her neighbor.

Heigl called the cops to her Los Angeles home Tuesday after a neighbor allegedly harassed her and husband Josh Kelley as the two lounged in their hot tub.

"We called the police," Heigl said on Heigl's KIIS FM radio show. "It takes one person in the neighborhood to just ruin it, and it's such a bummer. Everyone else in the neighborhood is so great, and we are the most mellow people you'll ever meet."

"Maybe I'll have six people over, maybe seven -- and that's the worst party I had and they're always screaming at us," she continued. "And they started screaming at us to go inside, and I just had it. [I said], 'This ridiculous, this is harassment, and I'm calling the police.'"

"We're like the most boring couple in Hollywood," the new mom said, "and that's the most scandalous thing we've ever done."

On "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," Heigl stressed that she and Kelley weren't doing anything un-kosher, though they were "a couple cocktails in" by the time the police arrived.

"It was a quiet hangout," she said. "I wore my most scanty, whatever bikini ... and by the way, again, it was totally PG. We're not idiots."

Heigl, who recently checked out of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" after five years, has been trying to make it as a big-screen actress.

She's shown she can bring it in at the box office with "Knocked Up," "27 Dresses" and "The Ugly Truth." The latter, with Gerard Butler, earned an impressive $88 million. But while Heigl has shown the potential to be a movie star, critics have knocked many of her films.

"The Killers," her summer rom-com with Ashton Kutcher, scored this review from Boxoffice magazine: "After this bomb, Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher may qualify as two of the most attractive and prematurely washed-up screen actors Hollywood has ever produced."

Reviews for the newly released "Life As We Know It," in which Heigl plays Holly, a woman who adopts her deceased friend's orphaned daughter, are similarly dismal.

"There's something about Holly," Lisa Schwarzbaum wrote in Entertainment Weekly. "She's the most ridiculous, irritating, two-dimensional rom-com heroine since ... Katherine Heigl's last rom-com."
