Ex-L.A. anchor Walker into rehab


Former TV news anchor Bree Walker has entered an alcohol rehabilitation program.

"As part of a continuing series of positive steps for unity, which have been taken in my family this past year, I have chosen, of my own accord, to enter a treatment program for alcohol dependency," Walker said in a statement Thursday.

Spokesman Howard Bragman said Walker began the program Wednesday night.

The former TV news anchorwoman, who was once married to sportscaster Jim Lampley, has also appeared on "Nip/Tuck" and in TV series including HBO's "Carnivale."
