Private Practice


Private Practice is coming back, and the cast shared a little info at the recent premiere party for the season-one DVD. Click in to find out where full-frontal nudity fits in and how the center of the show might be going, going, gone...

Practice Imperfect: According to Kate Walsh (Dr. Addison Montgomery), "There's so much happening this season! There's a lot more surgery. There's lots of sex. We realize in the first episode that the practice has a little financial turmoil happening, which I think is actually topical in the state of our economy. I think a lot of people can identify and relate when you mortgage a place and then 'Uh oh! How am I gonna pay for it?' "

Or, as Paul Adelstein (Cooper) put it, "The practice itself gets threatened. It might go under. The other thing that Shonda is trying to do is really get into some medical ethics issues that doctors and families have to deal with all the time. There are some really good storylines about that stuff." I wonder if this means the new focus on medical mysteries will happen entirely outside of the wellness center, but in Dr. King's (KaDee Strickland) domain of the hospital instead.

Nekkid! But never mind about all that messy medicine. Chris Lowell (Dell)—whom I always knew I loved—gave up the real goods on what to watch for this season: "Taye Diggs and full-frontal nudity. That's all I can tell you. It just gets weird! I mean it's really nice and intimidating—for the guys—to see. Taye's a whole lot of man. And that's it. No! Truthfully though, what you can expect from season two? There's a lot of crisscrossing of relationships that you maybe didn't expect and didn't see last season; a lot of romances flaring up, and it's going to be all over the board. It's a web."

Hmmm...about the relationships, and although he's obviously kidding about Taye, I sure like the way he thinks!

B.A. (Before Addison): According to Amy Brenneman (Violet) the second-season premiere will happily fill in many of the gaps in our understanding of how these people met and came to work together. She said, "I was really happy with the initial episode of this season because I think it answers some questions that we all were asking, that we didn't really have time to get in to last year about what kind of place this is and what they're up against. Everyone gets these beautiful back stories."

I, for one, want to see how Cooper and Violet became friends. Anything you want to see? Post in the comments!

Meantime, Private Practice season one is out on Tuesday, Sept. 16 and season two premieres on ABC on Wed., Oct. 1. See you there.
