'It was a long trip for most of them and they had to brave customs, airports, flight delays, city traffic and leaving their families just to spend a couple of days with me,' she continued. 

'There is nothing, and I mean nothing, like spending time with women who know the depths of your soul and love you anyway! 

'Some of us have stayed in touch these last 20 something years and some of us have raced off on our paths post high school and lost contact but our sisterhood remains beautifully, profoundly intact and I could not be more inspired by or grateful for these extraordinary women!'

Heigl is the latest addition to USA's hit TV-series Suits following the exit of Meghan Markle and Patrick Adams. 

The former Grey's Anatomy star talked about transitioning from being a full-time mom to a working mom on her blog Those Heavenly Days

'The reality is, I've been acting since I was eleven years old. I have put in my 10,000 hours and it's what I know and do best,' she said. 

'Part of me would love to retire from the screen and be a mommy blogger who works from home. Another part of me would be devastated to give up performing and storytelling. 

'The old adage 'Women can have it all' is a half truth that kind of pisses me off. You may, as a woman, be able to have a successful career and a family but you are always, always compromising one for the other. I guess you can call it having it all, you just can't have it all at once.'
