Grey's Anatomy hunk Eric Dane and Private Practice leading lady Kate Walsh will be teaming up in the newest crossover of those successful ABC medical dramas.

Here's the crossover situation:

  • On Grey’s Anatomy, Dr. Mark Sloan (Dane) pleads with Addison to come to Seattle and help perform surgery on a patient (guest star Leven Rambin).
  • On Private Practice, complications arise and Mark is forced to take the patient down to L.A. for more surgery, presumably also performed by Addison.

As for Mark's connection to the girl, whether sparks fly between the former lovers, and whether the relationship between Mark and Lexie is at all impacted?

That remains to be seen. But we can only assume it will involve serious surgical and sexual tension, plus a long-winded melodramatic monologue or eight.

Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart were recently seen on a stemy home video without pants. Or shirts. Or many functioning brain cells remaining.

Now the couple is suing the pants off the company of a celebrity gossip blog that posted the weird Eric Dane nude tape (not a sex tape) last month.

The 12-minute home video, which featured the couple along with former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche, 25, are suing for copyright infringement.

They are seeking $1 million from Gawker Media. Whether they get that sum or even have any legal recourse at all here is a different matter entirely.

In the lawsuit, Dane's lawyer, Marty Singer, argues that Gawker was warned that posting the video on Defamer.com violated the couple's legal and privacy rights, but that it "went on to maliciously distribute an uncensored copy" of the tape.

Singer suggests that the blog was trying to defame Eric Dane, with malicious intent. The blog's name is Defamer.com, so he might have a case. Right?

Nick Denton, publisher of Gawker, says not so much: "To quote the great Marty Singer – if you don't want a sex tape on the internet, 'don't make one!'"

Dane and Gayheart "were partially and sometimes fully disrobed in the video, recorded it behind locked doors in Peniche's bedroom," the lawsuit states.

But unless the tape was stolen from Dane by Gawker, is posting it online a crime? That's a legal dilemma stickier than ... oh, never mind, it's just sticky.

As for how it was released in the first place, that's a big mystery, but there's a theory that Mindy McCready stole it from Kari Ann Peniche in rehab. Really.

Actress Rebecca Gayheart is expecting her first child with actor husband / nude tape co-star Eric Dane, according to reports that keep on surfacing.

The couple, who married in 2004, has been in the spotlight in recent months following the Eric Dane nude tape, in which they appear to be high.

And naked.

But Gayheart and Dane now have some happier news to report, according to reports saying she's pregnant after working with fertility specialists.

Dane has spoken about working with fertility specialists on the record, as well as how they are trying to have a baby, so maybe this isn't far fetched.

The rumors that Gayheart is pregnant have not been confirmed, however.

Are Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane and his better half expecting?

A source says that Rebecca Gayheart "had some pretty bad morning sickness, but now she's more than three months along and in great spirits."

Eric Dane told Ellen DeGeneres earlier this year that "We're currently working on that. It's funny because you get the doctors involved and they call you and it's like, 'In eight days I'll have to put in some work. I will be very busy.'"

Congratulations to the happy couple of the news is true.

And to Kari Ann Peniche, for getting to see both of these hotties naked at the same time! Not a lot of people can claim that feat. You go, girl!

Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane were spotted laughing and smiling throughout a romantic stay at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif., last weekend.

Why so jovial after the release of the scandalous Eric Dane tape?

Because they are laid-back people who just don't care, and the naked tape wasn't even all that embarrassing really may be expecting a little McSteamy!

"Having a baby has been a top priority of the past six months," reveals an insider, who says the pair has had trouble conceiving since they eloped in 2004.

Life & Style says Rebecca is 3-4 months pregnant right now. While we don't believe that necessarily at all, the couple has talked about having kids a lot.

It takes more than a naked tape to faze these free spirits.

Gayheart turned down the role of Penn Badgley and Taylor Momsen's mom on Gossip Girl because it was based in New York City and she didn't want to be away from Eric or travel that far, according to a source close to the couple.

"It was bad for her health," the insider says. "She's also turned down a Hallmark movie and a Lifetime movie because she was trying to have a baby."

We just hope they don't name it Kari Ann. As for the Grey's Anatomy hunk? You can see him on Season 6 of that program starting September 24.

LAPD detectives have confirmed that the Eric Dane nude tape leaked early this week is under investigation as the video "contained images that could link celebrities engaging in illegal activity," according to a department statement.

In the Eric Dane tape, which also features his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche - the three appear rather intoxicated.

Gayheart is heard saying, "I'm so high."

The LAPD says "no determination has been made as to whether or not the DVD contained any information that could be used for a criminal investigation."

It is also looking into "archived articles and photographs of porn stars and formally convicted madams, which could readily be found over the internet."

Kari Ann Peniche, who lost her Miss Teen USA crowd for posing in Playboy, is also alleged to be, or to have been involved in a sex-for-hire business.

Police are reviewing the DVD "for potential evidence" and "therefore, additional information about the contents of the DVD will be treated as confidential."

Peniche's manager, David Weintraub, said the 12-minute Eric Dane naked tape was made two years and "in good fun. This is not a sex tape," he added.

"It's guys having fun, hanging out together. There is no sex involved in this."

Kari Ann Peniche did not have sex with Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, the troubled former beauty queen, who believes their nude tape was stolen from her, says.

The alleged Eric Dane sex tape, featuring the drugged-up naked trio, contains absolutely no sex, and none occurred when the camera was off, Kari Ann said.

In a statement, Dane's lawyer went out of his way to distinguish between a sex tape and a naked video. Which is not to say the 12-minute tape isn't risque.

The three played dress up and the two naked women then lounged together in a bathtub as Eric filmed them, high as kites and musing about porn names.

It's weirder than it is hot.

As for how it was leaked, Kari Ann Peniche says the nude video was stored on the hard drive of her computer, but stolen by troubled country star Mindy McCready, her roommate after the two completed a stint on the TV show Celebrity Rehab.

Kari Ann Peniche says she got into an argument with McCready over money and the singer ganked her hard drive as a result. Peniche freaked about personal info on the hard drive getting out and filed a stolen property report with the LAPD.

Peniche was kicked off Celebrity Rehab for stealing from McCready, ironically.

The disappearance of her hard drive eventually led to a meeting of reps and lawyers for Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart, Kari Ann and Mindy, in which Dane was granted rights to the video and everything was assumed to be resolved.

Until the Eric Dane tape surfaced on the Internet yesterday, that is.

There is another rumor going around that the nude tape surfaced as part of an official investigation into Kari Ann Peniche's alleged sex-for-hire business.

In any case, here are some photos of Kari Ann Peniche, the third wheel in what is definitely the weirdest celebrity threesome with a married couple ever:

Eric Dane's lawyer wants to differentiate between a "sex tape" and a "nude tape." But whatever you want to call it, he's willing to sue you for exploiting it.

A video showing the Grey's Anatomy star, his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche nude and in compromising positions is ancient history, according to Marty Singer, an attorney for the married couple.

Singer says using the tape for commercial purposes will mean a big lawsuit.

In a statement released Monday shortly after the Eric Dane tape circulated, the actor's lawyer said of the (non) sex video being discussed and shown online:

"This is simply a private, consensual moment involving a married couple, shot several years ago, which was never intended to be seen by the public."

The statement continues:

"Although the participants are nude, the tape is not a sex tape. It is a private tape made for my clients' personal use, and nobody has the right to exploit it."

Singer said that "if anyone exploits the tape, they will be violating my clients' rights and will be exposed to significant liability." We don't doubt it one bit.

The attorney reiterated that the Eric Dane tape is a "private, confidential tape," and added that "from what I've seen, it's a naked tape, not a sex tape."

The third woman in the video is Kari Ann Peniche, who in 2002 was crowned Miss Teen USA but was later stripped of the title after posing for Playboy.

Kari Ann Peniche, who was once engaged to Aaron Carter and appeared on Celebrity Rehab for sex addiction, is alleged to be involved in a sex-for-hire business.

We will have more on that aspect of the Eric Dane tape later.

"You gotta be two of the f*%king hottest girls this side of Mulholland." - Eric Dane

If you couldn't tell from the headline, Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane, his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss Teen USA / Playboy model Kari Ann Peniche apparently engaged in a threesome and filmed a sex tape together.

A lot of drugs were apparently involved.

With every celebrity sex tape, one wonders just what the hell the participants were possibly thinking. In this case, it's pretty clear: they weren't.

Our analysis: After ingesting a boatload of mind-altering drugs, a nude Eric Dane nailed his wife Rebecca Gayheart and beauty-queen-turned-Hollywood-madam Kari Ann Peniche. While debating the best porn star names of course.

Eric Dane, Kari Ann Peniche

Eric Dane and Kari Ann Peniche take a sex tape break.

In the video, a 12-minute romp, the inebriated threesome lounges nude in the Studio City apartment of Kari Ann, passing around the camera and, for giggles, discussing what their names would be if they joined the adult film industry.

Dane settles on "Tuff Hedemen" (his favorite bull rider). Soon they move to the bathroom where the ladies disrobe and Eric takes over the camera.

In truth, it's not very exciting. It is, however, very real and they are very naked.

Follow the jump for some still photos from the Eric Dane sex tape ...

Yesterday, both Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo turned a year wiser. How cool is that? Airport-brawling, Zac Efron-loving Nikki Blonsky also had a birthday.

Today, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo celebrates both a birthday and a wedding anniversary, while her co-star Eric Dane blew out the candles yesterday.

Reality TV waste of space Shayne Lamas surely got lucky Sunday, while Simon Monjack surely has something special planned for Brittany Murphy this evening.

Here's a little tribute to the birthday boys and girls of November 9-10. Click to enlarge, and check out our calendar of celebrity birthdays to see who's up next!

As if life isn't difficult enough for Eric Dane.

The Grey's Anatomy actor was recently dissed by Addison Sheperd and turned down as Seattle Grace Chief of Surgery - and now he has to deal with his semi-cute wife, Rebecca Gayheart, waving her boobs around for all celebrity gossip photographers to see.

The former Noxeema spokeswoman isn't that bad looking, but she's no Kate Walsh, as you can see by Dane's thought process below.

The man known as McSteamy doesn't seem to be bothered by any of the recent Isaiah Washington controversy; he's too worried about how he'll bed Addison again, now that she's off to her very own Private Practice.

And now his wife is flashing her knockers like she's Tila Tequila or Holly Madison nude or someone. Come on, Rebecca. Show some decency.
