Kate Walsh Leaving 'Private Practice'

Kate Walsh makes an appearance on Bethenny Frankel‘s new talk show, Bethenny, in an episode airing Wednesday (June 13).

“This is my last season,” Kate said. “It’s been an incredible journey an amazing ride. I’m hugely, hugely grateful.”

“It’s been a long time being Addison. I feel incredibly grateful to [creator] Shonda Rhimes and all the fans that have been there from day one to now,” she added. “I’m really excited about the last season … it’s bittersweet.”

    Get real. Whenever a cast member of a show says they’re leaving. It really means that they are doing the old contract/want more money thing. As for the Bethany show, Umm, never gonna watch it. I find her so freakin annoying.

  • Buzzy

    Yeah, right. The show’s been running on fumes creatively from the start and was totally on the bubble. Even Kate Walsh knows “PP” was headed for cancellation. At least this way she saves some (fat) face.

  • Jamie

    It has been an amazing 8 years, but I support Kate’s decision. I won’t be watching Private Practice without Kate. I can’t wait to see what else Kate will do. She must already have something in the works.

  • Kaylee

    i thought the whole show was ending…guess i was wrong. without addison, theres no point

  • Mac

    Kate knows the show is dead. She is smart announcing it now Shonda will have to write closure for Addison.
    I watch for Addie only. I love Kate. Looking forward to her next project!

  • no thanks

    I read somewhere that they might not keep the show if Kate definitely left it so i dont tihnk there will be another season, i wont be watching it without her though if there was another season.

  • Alaia

    I don’t even watch the show (or care), but isn’t she, like, the lead? It will probably be as disastrous as Steve Carell leaving The Office. Though I hear the show sucks, anyway.

    It’s sad she’s leaving but if it goes on, I will still be watching. This show has many great actors like Amy Brenneman, Paul Adelstein, KaDee Strickland…
