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

I could have saved these photos for Friday when Duana posts her Scandal recap but… WHY WAIT? It’s Olivia and Mellie, Kerry Washington and Bellamy Young, shooting scenes for the show before the holiday break. Duana and I went out the other night and spent part of it talking about Scandal. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Did Saturday Night Live address its lack of black women in the cast issue this week? Well, the show certainly acknowledged that people have been talking about it. I’m not sure that’s the same thing as admitting that there is a problem, or doing anything about it. You could argue that Lorne Michaels has no obligation to hire female black comedians. And, sure, he doesn’t. But if his job description is to make sure that his show is relevant and creative, he should probably produce an environment that doesn’t limit relevance or creativity. The fact that the show currently has no players who can play – and/or satirise – the First Lady of the United States, or Oprah (the first lady of media), or Beyonce (the first lady of pop), or Kerry Washington herself (which is why they can spoof Homeland but not Scandal) limits its relevance and creativity.  Read Full Intro

Scandal Season 3 Episode 5 recap I started thinking about this as I began writing this article, and of course, just for irony, I don’t know. I don’t know what my blind spot is. I’m sure my friends or family could tell you, but I don’t immediately go "oh. Yeah. That’s what trips me up every time. Full Story

I’m very late to Scandal. I started it this season after watching an hour-long recap. It’s pulpy, entertaining, ridiculous and one of the few shows I actually care to watch in real time. This is largely because of Kerry Washington. She’s an excellent actress and a very interesting celebrity. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

“Are we gladiators, or are we bitches?”

What we are, here, on Scandal, is so f-cking EXTRA. Unapologetically EXTRA. Wonderfully, amazingly, all caps all the time EXTRA. Please never let it stop. Scandal is the Mariah Carey of TV shows. And the key to being the Mariah Carey of TV shows is part self-awareness, part self-celebration, and part self-ordained. It’s not like Shonda Rhimes doesn’t know that her sh-t is bananas. She is revelling in how bananas this sh-t is. And there’s no explanation for it other than to say…it’s meant to be this way. Like destiny.

Right now, no other show gives me as much pure, decadent joy. And it almost feels like the writers, they are writing it with joy. Can you imagine writing this line? Can you imagine how much fun it would be to write this line? And then to see it being played out on television!?

“You are getting on that plane come hell or high water.  Read Full Intro

Scandal. Tomorrow. Are you in? Come on. You have to be in. Olivia Pope is Olivia Pope’s new client. But according to the previews, Olivia doesn’t want to be Olivia’s client, even though she’s exactly the kind of client that Olivia usually works with, and the Gladiators activate! Whether or not she accepts their activation is why we’re watching tomorrow. Full Story
