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.

Best. News. Ever. I'm so glad she's returning. I'd love for Tm Daly and Chris Lowell to make an appearance even if it's in the form of a flashback or just appearing as a ghost for Betsy, while Pete is some kind of sub-conscious thing for Violet and tells her to move on or something. As for Naomi, hopefully her and Sam will rekindle! That'll be fantastic!

You mean the actress left so she could return to her beloved Broadway and get that sixth tony award.

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.
