It's Friday the 13th, and while superstitions about today abound, for some people it turns out this day which only comes around a few times a year is actually pretty fantastic.

As a born-on-the-13th baby, it's my duty to dispel any myths about this much maligned day. First off, there's a good chance that if you sit down to dinner with 13 people today, one of you won't be dead within a year. Unless it's really, really old relative's birthday, then maybe all bets are off.

Secondly, it's actually not unlucky to be born on the 13th of a month.

Why? Well, because you were born. That's a big deal. It was definitely a big deal for these 13 stars born on Friday the 13th. As it turns out, that was their (and our) lucky day.

Today is a Friday like any other, despite what the calendar may say, but should you go to any sleepaway camps, look out for guys in hockey masks. Just in case.

Kate Walsh has traded in her stethoscope for a feather boa.

In the following video, the former Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy star proves how badly she wants to increase her Twitter presence by doing a pole dance on Ellen.

See, the actress originally thanked her 500,000 followers by giving them a quick high kick online... but the talk show host didn't think that was nearly enough.

So, out came the stripper pole and up on stage went Walsh. Watch the least sexiest pole dance in Internet history now:

For the record, Walsh portrays an ex-stripper on FX's Fargo, providing a bit of subtext to this footage.

Yes, Private Practice fans, the rumors are true: Kate Walsh is leaving after the show's 13-episode sixth season.

The actress herself confirmed the news this morning during an appearance on Bethenny, telling the host and her viewers:

“This is my last season of Private Practice. It’s been an incredible journey and an amazing ride... and I feel incredibly grateful to [series creator] Shonda Rhimes and all the fans that have been there from day one ’til now."

ABC is yet to confirm whether season six will be the final one for the show itself, but Walsh is looking forward to her exit and how it will play out.

“I’m really excited about the last season. I am,” she told Frankel, concluding of her decision to depart: “It’s bittersweet... a huge chapter of my life.”

Bethenny premiered her daily talk show on Monday by trying to milk divorce rumors for ratings. It was a pathetic display.

Kate Walsh is in shape and in Shape.

The 44-year old Private Practice star goes public with her incredible nude body on the cover of this month's issue, telling the magazine of the decision:

Right now, I feel really healthy, confident, and sexy. I’m enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that. Is it a mid-life crisis? I do drive a Porsche, so maybe it is!"

Walsh says she's never had plastic surgery - "Everyone has her line in the sand. I draw mine at facials and laser treatments. But if others want to go a step further, it's their call." - but she did walk into a different kind of controversy a couple months ago.

Many are still confused by her odd fragrance ad, which depicted the actress in full on gangsta mode.

This issue of Shape goes on sale February 27.

A new Web commercial for the Kate Walsh fragrance Billionaire Boyfriend has been released and we don't want to say it's racist...

... but it's definitely something.

In the spot (below), the Private Practice star dons a great deal of bling, sports a serious grill and is flanked by a white dude in a blonde afro.

“The idea was always luxe,” the actress says of the ad. “It’s kind of a throwback to times when things were just sexy and romantic, and that fantasy of James Bond movies, Monte Carlo, driving down the coast in a sports car... la dolce vita."

What do you think of the video?

One Stella McCartney blazer. Two gorgeous stars. Who wore it better?

The former co-stars of Grey's Anatomy, Kate Walsh and Ellen Pompeo, both wore the same Stella McCartney blazer recently, with Walsh (girlfriend of Neil Andrea now the leading lady of Private Practice) pairing hers with ombré jeans.

Pompeo, still the leading lady of Grey's and now the mother of a baby girl, Stella Luna, with husband Chris Ivery, opted for a simple pencil skirt with hers.

Who wore it better? You tell us ...

Guess her rumored boyfriend is no longer rumored.

Kate Walsh walked hand-in-hand with her new man Neil Andrea during a shopping excursion in Los Angeles over the weekend. And that wasn't all.

The couple looked very much in love as they kissed over lunch, while Walsh's parents, in town for a visit, casually read the paper at the table!

So much for Private Practice. Try public display of ... forget it.

Kate Walsh, Neil Andrea

Neil Andrea has a happy girlfriend in Kate Walsh.

Kate Walsh married film executive Alex Young in September 2007, but contentiously filed for divorce in December 2008, citing irreconcilable differences.

We're glad she's happier with Neil!

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.

It's no Kellan Lutz and Jessica Stroup, but Kate Walsh made quite the romantic splash attending the Emmy Awards Sunday night with new beau Neil Andrea.

Just don't expect the Private Practice star to open up about it.

Asked about her hot date, Walsh told the New York Daily News, "I'm not going to talk about it. I know you have to ask, but it's top-secret! It's in the vault!"

Great Seinfeld quote, but their affection wasn't in any vault.

Walsh introduced Andrea to new NCIS: Los Angeles star Chris O'Donnell as "my boyfriend," and later, the pair were seen locking lips, according to reports.

Neil Andrea: Kate Walsh's hot new arm candy.

Neil Andrea also supported Kate Walsh at the Private Practice "Blow Out Cancer" charity event to benefit the American Cancer Society Monday in Beverly Hills.

The two arrived together but Walsh talked to the press as Andrea went off to chat up her co-stars Taye Diggs, Tim Daly, Paul Adelstein, and Chris Lowell.

Walsh married film executive Alex Young in September 2007, but rather contentiously filed for divorce in December 2008 citing irreconcilable differences.

At least they appear to be getting along more amicably now, however: "Alex and I still care for each other, and I wish him nothing but the best," she said.
