IA, that KH probably should've kept her mouth shut about why she didn't submit herself for the Emmys but I'd probably be more put off by her comment if it weren't true and I still don't know if she meant it in a jerky kind of way. And if tptb were so displeased by her comments then they could have simply not written for her. They could've done KH the way they've done TR the last few episodes or the way they've done since he's been there.
Speaking of the two of them, they should be getting more screen time instead of hiring new people. And if I'm not mistaken two other new interns have been cast. For me personally, I was starting to like/root for Izzie again because of her new relationship with Alex. To me that was the perfect opportunity to get people to care for again. Don't most people like watching a good, real love story blossoming? I still can't believe we're dealing again with a dead Denny.
Slightly OT - I haven't been crazy about Private Practice either. I wonder if it's Shonda & her overall ideas, the network, or the writers they hire to execute the stories for both shows.
