Kate Walsh is reportedly shuttering the doors on her “Private Practice” at the end of 2012. While it’s highly unusual for the star of a primetime series to opt of said series before network execs have announced that the end is near, sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that Walsh is only committing to 13 episodes of the show, which was recently renewed for its sixth season. It’s unclear why Walsh would want out. Perhaps she’s anxious to get back to her comedic roots? Perhaps she’s ready to create new Boyfriend fragrances full time? Or perhaps after 7 years of playing Dr. Addison Montgomery Shepherd, she is simply ready to hang up her stethoscope?

The best sign that it is going to be a good morning? When Kate Walsh appears on “Good Morning America.” The “Private Practice” star sat down for interview yesterday to talk about the last episode of her “Grey’s Anatomy” spin-off in which, after years of wanting a baby, Dr. Addison Montgomery finally gets one. How you ask? Well, a teen mom at the hospital chooses her profile from a book as the one she would like to raise her daughter.
Walsh says that it was very emotional discovering that the character she’s been playing for years was finally becoming a mom.
“I literally got teary. I didn’t find out until the table read,” said Walsh. “It’s literally the last thing that happens in the episode. So, yeah it was really exciting.”
