Private Practice star Kate Walsh is on the cover of the new Redbook magazine, looking gorgeous, happy and fully recovered from the end of her 15-month marriage. She sounds it, too. “I’ve always been the girl who keeps on trying,” she says.

Walsh, 41, wed Hollywood studio executive Alex Young in September 2007. “I don’t think anyone gets married thinking that they will get divorced. We certainly did not. Alex and I still care for each other, and I wish him nothing but the best. The silver lining to this, however, is that I have a wonderful family and a great group of friends who really showed their support and encouragement, and for that I am truly grateful.”
