Scandal season 5 episode 19 recap May I raise a glass to Sally Langston as the most creative and surprisingly believable and effective use of a character who had in theory outlived her usefulness? I may, with an extra clink for the disdain with which she enunciates ‘feminist’. It’s notable because other shows might have written her off, and in fact this show has written off plenty of people who aren’t getting it done anymore – but Sally as super-skewed Greek chorus still seems to work, and she has so much fun with it! Watching her relish critiques of women she can’t bear and wishes she could be started the show on a high point. Full Story
Danny was born exactly a year ago today. Three weeks later, his mother, Kelly, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She’s been fighting hard but the disease has now spread to her brain.

Five years ago today, also a Friday, I was positioned at the Duke of York monument in London reporting from the royal wedding live on CTV, waiting for Will and Kate to pass by on their carriage after getting married at Westminster Abbey. It was one of the best assignments of my life. Not just because it felt like a once-in-a-lifetime professional opportunity but also because it was so much fun! England was a party on every corner.
Remember how great Will and Harry looked side by side in their uniforms, one in red, the other in black? Remember how Harry allegedly leaned over to Will when Kate was walking down the aisle, “Wait ‘til you see her”? Remember the kiss? Both kisses? And the cute little car they drove away in? Remember when we thought Pippa actually had potential?
We were all so innocent then.
But … there is another.
Because now we have Big G. Who, in his time, will be very, very good for royal gossip.
Have a great weekend!

I am not a mother. I am not qualified to speak to the joys, trials, and triumphs of motherhood. But I have seen the movie Mother’s Day, so I know all about pain, desperation, despair, and the deep abiding shame that comes from watching silently as another human being is repeatedly humiliated for the prurient pleasures of others.
