Katherine Heigl made a threat to her husband while they were dating. The star of State of Affairs on NBC revealed this threat during her appearance on The Meredith Vieira Show. The actress’ appearance will air on NBC later today. According to the Mail Online, Katherine Heigl revealed to the talk show host that she used John Mayer to get her now husband to commit to their relationship.
Katherine Heigl is married to singer Josh Kelley. The pair met several years ago when the actress starred in one of his music videos. Heigl revealed during the interview that she met singer John Mayer around the same time, and they hit it off.
Heigl spoke openly about what she did to Josh with Vieira.
“Around the same time I met Josh, I also met John Mayer. John Mayer and I are from neighboring towns and knew some of the same people. My Josh had gone off on tour and was playing hard to get. So I didn’t know – are we a thing? Are we a couple? These musicians, they are competitive and jealous of each other. [So] over the phone, because he was on tour, I was like, ‘Josh, I’ve got to be honest. I just want to know where we stand because if not, I might try to pursue something with John.'”
Her ploy worked because she is now married to Kelley, and they have two children together. The actress has also returned to television. She stars in State of Affairs, which premiered on NBC last Monday night. On the series, she plays Charlie, a former CIA operative who now works for the White House. She is in charge of the team that assesses threats to the country.
According to Zap2It, 8.65 million tuned in to watch the premiere of State of Affairs last Monday night. Heigl last appeared on television in Grey’s Anatomy, and Katherine Heigl was asked about her decision to return to television in a recent interview shared by Record Online.
“Executive producers Rodney Faraon and Hank Crumpton are ex-CIA. Rodney was on the briefing team for Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. They’d tell stories, and I’d think about how no one really talks about those analysts. There’s no real glory in the job, because they have to remain anonymous. There’s not a lot of money in it. Plus, the idea of playing a grown-up woman in a powerful position seemed really appealing to me.”
Heigl is definitely enjoying her return to television. The Inquisitr previously reported on a photo shared by Heigl from the set. Heigl will have a steamy scene in an upcoming episode of the series, and she had to undress for it. Her crew joined her by taking off their own shirts.
What do you think of Katherine Heigl’s threat to her husband? State of Affairs will air tonight on NBC.
