Private Practice Scoop: Look Who's Returning!

by at . Comments

A very familiar face will make an appearance on Private Practice Season 6 before this ABC drama says goodbye.

TV Guide has confirmed that Audra McDonald will reprise the role of Naomi Bennett on the upcoming series finale. The best friend of Addison and ex-husband of Sam moved to New York near the end of Season 4.

In real life, the actress also departed for The Big Apple in order to be closer to her family.

Taye Diggs, Audra McDonald

No word yet on what brings Naomi back into the Seaside Wellness picture. A reunion of some kind? A wedding? A funeral?

Take your best guess now.

I enjoy Na as an actress but was not fond of the sometimes moody neediness that she portrayed. I do not want Addison with Sam. The relationship crossed a line that should not have crossed but her being a girl...***** un em (clearing my throat) allowed her to lose her faculties for a few minutes in order to believe that it was alright even though it wasn't. I like her with Jake. There is a balance there. Like he told her I am NOT running and that is what she needs. Someone that is going to hold on and allow her to be. If there has too be a series finale, I would like for it to consist of as Jake put it "having given her a baby" and now she will commit to him the way that they both deserve.


why shonda let sam proposal to addison if there not going to be a wedding between
sam and addison and now she is getting married too jake a man she just meet
is not fair shonda wanted to hurt addisam fan because all fan stop watching
he thought that shouda love sam and addison together as a coupel
because of addisam fan private practice making to 5 season because of them
and charlotte and cooper fans to let sam and addison be the endgame finale
make addisam fans happy shouda


I just made a comment and I stated why not bring Naomi back and she is coming back for a show or two. Why not permanent and keep the show going. ABC PLEASE RECONSIDER your decision. I think the show can make it beef it up a bit and bring some characters back and introduce new ones. Life changes and people come and go from our lives.

good naomi is coming for the finale to meet addison son henry and chartotts babys
not to rekindle her relationship with sam and not for a wedding
addison happy ending is henry not a husband hope for a 2 hour episode


YAYY!! The show hasn't been the same without Naomi there. I'm so happy Shonda decided to end the show on the right note.


I'm probably the only one who feels this way, but I was never fond of Naomi and was thrilled when she left. She is a fine actress, but I can't stand the character so I do hope that her presence is mostly unnoticeable.


She is definitely coming for Addie and Jake's wedding.


if Charlotte is going to have a baby naomi is going to want to see it with her own eyes.

Private Practice Quotes

You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.


Charlotte: My mom always says God doesn't give with both hands. You're young, beautiful, brilliant. There has to be something you can't have.
Amelia: Some days I'd give that all up.
Charlotte: That's just the craving talking. The longer you go without a drink...
Amelia: I drank at your wedding. I thought it was ginger ale. I spit it out.
Charlotte: OK, since then?
Amelia: Nothing, but I can't stop thinking about it.
Charlotte: It was an accident. Don't let a slip turn into a fall. Get your butt to a meeting.
