    Kate & Taye, rock on !!

  • Lee

    Weird choice of place to celebrate your first wedding anniversary – at a PR party for a nightclub !!

    Kate and Jenna look great. 2 of my fav actresses.

  • Karen

    Ellen looks so cute!

  • Sara

    Pompeo and her hub were stayed at the hotel the party was at so they prob told her about it and she said sure

  • Anna

    not surprised to see kw there she had her bacheloretty party at that place

  • Lucy

    Ellen looks as blah as usual. Don’t like the ribbon she’s wearing as a necklace. Looks like she’s trying to hang herself !

    Jenna looks pretty but I don’t like the dress.

    I love Kate’s new hairstyle. And I like those red shoes. She always wears the best shoes. Kate and her hubbie always looks cute together.

    Taye looks mighty handsome as always. Any more photos of him ? Was Idina there too ?

  • Gemma

    YAY !! for Kate photos. Love her. She’s rocking the new hairstyle and I like that leather wrap she’s wearing. Both her and her husband have the bluest eyes, if they ever have babies that baby is going to be adorable.

  • helen

    Kalex look cute :)

  • Val

    Ellen looks really happy

    Hope she didn’t get drunk and agree to appear on private practice. say nooooo Ellen!


    Kate looks fabulous as always :)

  • Natalie

    Kate looks fantastic, I am always envious of her skin. She glows. I love that Taye is there too. They are hilarious together.

  • Lauren

    Kate looks gorgeous! More of her please!

  • steph

    This was a party to celebrate the 3rd anniversary. You make it seem like it was Ellen’s party. Ellen just decided to try and get her own publicity from saying it was her anniversary. I find that strange as well because she basically called Kate a fame whore for having her wedding pictures in OK mag, and then she goes and makes her anniversary public.
    Anyways, Kate looks amazing! I love her shoes and hair and make-up :) And the Kalex pictures are adorable.

  • kit

    lol@Lucy, it does look like that necklace is trying to hang ellen !

  • Corinne

    Thanks for posting JJ
    Kate looks awesome, her hair looks great today, I am glad that Alex came with her.

  • S.

    Kate looks great. She and Alex are so sweet.

    Amanda Bynes, and Jenna look great too.

    JJ you got you facts wrong.

    Kate, Amanda Bynes, Jenna Fischer, Taye Diggs, and Stacy Keibler where announced for the Tao party. EP decided 1 day later she would be there. I guess some people get invited to do PR, and others need to latch on to get media attention.

  • sarah h

    Ellen looks good to, I think her hub is hot!lol! :D!

  • Amanda

    Thanks JJ. K-Towns looks smoking hot and awww cute Kalex pics :D

    Nice to see Taye too.

    BTW JJ none of those people “accompanied” Ellen, they all just happened to be at the same party. Also how much of a hypocrite is she?

  • Yolanda

    Wow! Kate looks amazing! Look at her legs!

  • Mike

    Steph – did Ellen really say that ? What a bitch. She’s hardly press-shy herself. She’s posed completely starkers, and sold her own honeymoon photos. Talk about irony ! My respect for her has gone.

    I bet Kate is pleased with the Obama victory. Wonder if her and her husband will be at the Inauguration ? Kate did loads of campaigning over the last 2 years, and I believe her husband hosted a fundraiser in Hollywood that must have raised megabucks towards the campaign.

  • Isadore

    Taye and Kate!
    I wonder if Idina was there.. Anyways Kate and Taye look amazing, I can’t believe it’s two weeks until the next episode of Private Practice!

  • Jess

    Kate pics!!! yay!! thanks! she looks amazing! and her hubby is so cute!

    And Ellen doesn’t look that bad. And I’ve seen more pics of this even, they seem to get along just fine :D

    More pics, JJ!!!

  • MIa

    Thx for postin!
    Always love to see Kate pics! Especially if she’s with Alex!
    Such a cute couple!
    And Kate looks great! Love her outfit and the shoes!

  • Olivia

    Kate and Alex :) I’m always happy to see photos of them. Like the BauerGriffin photographer always says, they are a cute down-to-earth couple.

    Kate’s on Ellen and Kimmel soon :)

  • Em

    Thanks for posting Jared. Kate looks HOT. More Kate pictures!

  • Pants

    Hot damn Kate looks smoking!

  • Jay

    Isadore – I’m not sure if Idina was there or not. Anyone know ?

    I think they are pretty friendly with Kate and Alex, they were both at Kate’s birthday party. Would love to see a photo of them all !

  • mark

    Jared – these photos do not do any justice to Kate’s fabulous shoes.
    You need to upload at least one shoe photo for all the obsessive shoe freaks to steal online. There are whole blogs dedicated to Kate’s feet lol.

  • Kate Walsh is a cow

    Pleaseeeeeee………. Kate Walsh is a cow and an hypocrite. She hates Pompeo. She didn’t invite her, Dempsey, Oh and Dane to her wedding and now she seems cute with Pompeo. UGH! Publicity for her crappy show. Who is the name of her show? Addison’s Anatomy? Puah!

  • life

    Ellen Pompeo is pretty woman. I really appreciate her.

  • hannah

    #38 Nice to see you still post the same drivel and can’t even get your facts straight yet again ! If Kate is a “cow” for not inviting Ellen to her wedding, than Ellen must be the biggest “cow” alive for not even inviting her own family. But then the general public know she’s a bitch from Punked. Nothing new there.

    Like S said – This was a party for a nightclub’s anniversary that Kate and Taye were announced for long ago. Kate is behaving as any of us would in meeting an ex-work colleague there. Just because you worked with someone doesn’t mean you’re automatically best buds.

    Ellen felt the need to issue her own PR statement announcing she would be there celebrating her wedding anniversary – she even name-checked Kate. If that isn’t desperately seeking PR, I don’t know what is !!!!!

  • Isadore

    Jay- I would love a picture of Kate, Alex, Taye and Idina!

  • Debbie

    Kate looks fantastic. I like those shoe boots with her skirt. She has the legs for them.

    I love Taye too. Every time I see candids of him, he’s wearing hats.

  • sadie

    I don’t think that pompeo sold her honeymoon pics since she didn’t have one… It was just a PR event, for KW, for EP and that’s all, no need to fight…

  • jamie

    Kate looks so hot! Kate and Alex are adorable.

    I love Taye and Jenna looks so pretty.

  • Julie

    Gawd I adore Kate Walsh. I just watched her Leno vid on YouTube. She is gorgeous and funny. Serious girl crush. Taye aint bad either!!
    And third the request for a Kate/Taye/Idina photo.

  • AddieLove

    KALEX FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jen

    Kate and Alex look like they’re having a good time :) Glad they have managed a break together given Kate has been filming non-stop since May. Bet they’re still on the Obama-high.

    Thanks Jared for the photos :)


    I like all these actresses, but i think Kate is so beautiful. Sadie, I think Ellen sold photos of her ‘honeymoon’ to a magazine cos i remember seeing them, might have been People or OK. Everyone does it, Patrick Dempsey sold photos of his newborn babies.

  • lisa

    Katie!!! And with Alex. Love this couple. Thanks jj.

  • Pajama

    I’m trying to find the black and white photoshoot that Kate did for Marie Claire cover to make a banner. Anyone know if there are hq scans online?Thanks.
