As per usual, it looks like the Kates, Katies, Catherines, and Katys of the world have been mighty busy this week. Here, your weekly roundup of name-specific news.

  • Kate Walsh has reached the 100th episode mark with “Private Practice.” [Hollywood Reporter]
  • In Harper’s Bazaar, Walsh points out that she didn’t get a prime role until well into her 30s. Amazing quote:  “Age is just a number. Unless, that is you live in Hollywood, where there’s the notion that if you haven’t hit it big by your 20s, you may as well hit the road. But if anyone told me that I would be thankful when I looked back on celebrating my 28th birthday alone in New York City with a piece of stale cheesecake, working at one of my three waitressing jobs, I would have punched him. During those broke years, I shared not one but two studio apartments, first with my brother, and then with my pal Karen, sleeping head to foot in the same bed. I never dreamed that one day I would land my breakout role at the ripe old age of 36.” []
