Scandal Season 4 Episode 5 recap Well, Scandal wasn’t boring. I can’t exactly decide what it was, in a word, because mostly it was a contradiction.    So we come in on the President’s daughter, the completely anachronistically named Karen, who needs rescuing from a party that is bad, and then gets very bad in short order when it turns out there’s a threesome video with her in it. Full Story

Scandal Season 4 Episode 2 Okay, so. Nicely done. That’s saying something because I thought an elementary-school shooting premise was going to be far more mawkish. Scandal made it not about that, which is impressive and also somehow made the death of Fitz & Mellie’s son Jerry into something relevant, and not just a ridiculous plot twist. Full Story

Season 4, Episode 1 recap I forgot about the soul music. I love the soul music on this show. Gone Girl is a very nice touch, as is Olivia’s curly hair, and what appears to be a first for network 9 PM.   Is that a first? Um, digital manipulation? In the first minute, what we know is that Olivia Pope, 100 miles of the coast of Zanzibar, is “Julia Baker”. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

One more night. How To Get Away With Murder and…

The return of Olivia Pope!

And that’s why Kerry Washington has been on heavy promotion all week. Last night it was Fallon. They played the In My Box game. God, she is cute. Irresistibly likeable. Which is why she’s the anchor for ABC’s clever new marketing strategy #TGIT.

Oh Thursday nights.

When I was growing up, Thursday nights were The Cosby Show, Family Ties, and Cheers. Like, we’d get home from school on Thursdays – the worst school days – and then suddenly feel like life was full of possibility. After that, in university, it was Friends, Seinfeld, and ER. Dorm night bonding…

Is that what social media is now on Thursdays? A giant dorm?

Yours in gossip,

Dear Gossips,

Shonda Rhimes is underrated. People fall on their knees for the Matt Weiners and the Vince Gilligans but Shonda Rhimes? Duana posted about Shonda not too long ago in a piece called How To Get Away With An Empire – click here for a refresher. I posted about her amazing Dartmouth commencement speech in the summer – click here for a refresher.

THIS WOMAN.

But for all This Woman has done, she still doesn’t get the kind of love reserved for the heavy hitters, the men behind shows like Mad Men and Breaking Bad. So the New York Times tried to give her some.  Read Full Intro

It’s not arbitrary, of course. Kerry Washington didn’t just choose the orange because she liked it, or as an homage to Orange Is The New Black, or whatever. She chose it, I assume, as she often does, to counteract all the white and grey and beige that is her (gorgeous, cashmere-filled) lot on Scandal. Full Story

Kerry Washington made her first public appearance since having a baby yesterday at the Crystal + Lucy Awards in LA yesterday with Shonda Rhimes, the mother of Olivia Pope. I wrote about Shonda earlier this week. About her wonderful commencement speech at Dartmouth. About her approach to the Work and her attitude about the Dream. Full Story

Kerry Washington had a daughter, two weeks ago. While you were slavering over the Scandal finale all “hashtag Gladiators guys, come on!” she was having her child in peace and quiet. In fact, I don’t even think her Twitter account went dark.  As for the name, well, I assume it’s a family name, right? Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha. Full Story

Whenever one of my friends starts to get all anxiety about what to wear to a party, I always tell them to remember that at 99% of social gatherings, all that matters is what you look like from the chest up. Parties are so crowded that the slightly too-big pants or scuffed shoes are not going to be noticed. Full Story

Scandal Season 3 Episode 11 recap So as it turns out, we should all be having a little more sex in front of bright naked lightbulbs. Right? It feels like Scandal has been gone forever and in the time it’s been gone, there’s been a seismic shift where the people taking the biggest risks in the action are the tertiary characters, of which there are legions. Full Story

Our girlcrush Kerry Washington was working on Scandal yesterday. At one point, her parents came to visit and spent some time talking to Rowan Pope aka Joe Morton. Remember – Olivia’s back on Thursday! One of main stress points of the week. Because I’ll be watching in a hotel room and – first world problem – can’t pause during the good parts and rewind back. Full Story

God, has it been 3 months? I think it’s been 3 months. Much too long. Here’s Kerry Washington at the NAACP Image Awards this weekend where she was named Outstanding Actress in a Drama and Scandal also took Outstanding Drama and Joe Morton or “Rowan Pope” was Outstanding Supporting Actor. Full Story

Look, if Rita Moreno hadn’t come in with her leather jacket and adolescent cleavage, Kerry Washington would have been Best Dressed at the SAGs because holy sh-t the pregnancy crop top was all of it and more. YES! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! This is what I’m talking about. But…WHYYYYY does she have to keep belly-cupping?!? Many of you have emailed to tell me that it comes from not knowing where to put your hands. Full Story

I know I don’t have to tell you how much this hurts me. A lot. Kerry Washington is one the great loves of this blog. Kerry Washington keeps her sh-t super tight. Her wedding was undercover. Her pregnancy has been low key. She didn’t explode it on us with an announcement and a Facebook page and a Tumblr tracking every ultrasound. Full Story
