We love Shonda Rhimes. As far as we're concerned, every year is a Year of Yes. But when a star of not one but two of the prolific showrunner's series decides to willingly spill some tea about Shonda, of course we're going to be all ears. 

How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

That's exactly what Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice star Kate Walsh did when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Wednesday night as she answered questions posed by the Shady Shonda Anaconda who slithered onto the screen. 

Though Shonda is legendary for her gift giving, not every present has been a winner. "We once got, I think, just a box of potpourri," Kate said on WWHL. "We were like, 'Really? We just won every award known to man. That's cool. That's super cool.'" 

Kate also revealed that she thought Grey's Anatomy jumped the shark during "the bomb episode," the Season 2 episode entitled "As We Know It." "But that's the one that made it everything, that made Grey's Anatomy," Kate explained. "I'd say she jumped that shark, but then we rode it all the way to the top." 

So did Shonda ever throw any shade of her own? "Here's what I will say, we had on Private Practice, all I'll say is there was a no a-hole policy," Kate replied. "How about that?"

We guess we'll take it.

Watch Kate and her fellow WWHL guest Laura Dern spill some more Hollywood secrets, below.
