‘Private Practice’ Star Kate Walsh Gets Naked for Shape

(Via WWD)

Kate Walsh, the star of “Grey’s Anatomy” spin-off “Private Practice,” will appear naked on the cover of next week’s Shape. A pitiful publicity ploy from a plummeting publication? First of all, apologies for the alliteration. Secondly, no, this was not Shape’s idea; it was Walsh’s. The 40-year-old actress approached the magazine with the idea months ago, and they loved it.

Walsh merely thought we all needed to know how great she looks. When WWD asked why she proposed the nude shoot, Walsh replied, “I’m enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that.”

Fantastic. Let’s all hope that Betty White isn’t enjoying her 90s.
