‘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.

NYT Thinly Veils SAG Prez Comparison

alanrosenberg.jpgNew York Times writer Brookes Barnes has been covering the SAG talks meltdown. His previous piece about SAG President Alan Rosenberg was titled,”Guild Chief for Actors Is No Pacifist.” Barnes paints Rosenberg as a reactionary, angry ‘militant’ of a leader:

“Aside from my family, I have two great loves in my life: acting and the fight for social justice,” he [Rosenberg] said. “Oh yes, we are very serious.”

Doesn’t sound like an invite to negotiations. That and social injustice is not exactly the plight of actors in 2008…PAs, assistants, the people that have to tell Kirstie Alley she’s funny…perhaps.

The article in today’s NYT furthers this image:

The arrival of the long-scheduled elections puts SAG leaders in the awkward position of trying to convince the studios that they have the unwavering support of members while facing a referendum on their strategy. Alan Rosenberg, president of the guild, is most displeased.

“It is not productive to come out and attack leadership during a negotiation,” Mr. Rosenberg said in an interview Friday. Asked if leaders might have made mistakes in the negotiations, he said: “It’s a lie! We haven’t bungled anything. We’ve been doing a phenomenal job.”

Would he say it has been a ‘heckuva job’?
