I'm still not sure why Kate Walsh got married to Alex Young. Oh, I'm sure she would say it was love. Hell, he might even say the same thing. Whatever. Alex filed for divorce the day before Thanksgiving. If you do that to someone, then you know the marriage sucked ass. I remember with wife #3 I think. She filed for divorce on Christmas Eve because, well she was the devil and didn't believe in Christmas, but to me it was tragic. Not tragic like if they tried to remake Burl Ives and Rudolph, but tragic as in the liquor store is out of my favorite brand of vodka.
Anyway, the soon to be divorced couple released a statement as was expected. It says it came from the couple, but since Alex probably doesn't have a spokesperson, I'm guessing it came from Kate's people. I love this line. “The couple remain on friendly terms and sincerely hope the media will respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
Most of the time it would say something like they remain best friends and still love each other and blah, blah, blah. But notice how it just says they remain on friendly terms. Translated that means they haven't changed their cell phone numbers yet. But I guarantee the calls are going straight to voice mail. Nasty? Oh, I think it will be. Settlement to keep it out of the media? Absolutely.
Oh, and Kate. Hope they take you back on Grey's because Private Practice is about thisclose to being canceled.
