Kerry Washington Gossip
Kerry Washington gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Two deeps dives from yesterday to recommend if you haven’t already:
Barry Avrich is a Canadian filmmaker who was trying a few years ago to put together an unauthorised documentary about Harvey Weinstein. According to Barry, Harvey Weinstein wasn’t exactly supportive. Barry details the experience in his new book Moguls, Monsters, and Madmen: An Uncensored Life in Show Business, excerpted earlier this week in The Hollywood Reporter.
I was terrified reading the piece. So you can imagine how terrifying it must have been for Barry Avrich – then and now. He describes Harvey like a mob boss, a man who intimidates and colludes, who is so powerful he can control not only actors, producers, and studios, but even the New York Times, and ruins careers without compunction.

Less chilling – Anne Helen Petersen’s excellent feature on Kerry Washington’s privacy management as her career has continued to flourish. Note the point that AHP makes about Kerry’s strategic focus on fashion and styling to advance her own profile (a perspective often conveniently ignored by the #askhermore crusaders) and the comparison between Kerry’s approach to preventing her child from media exposure and, say, Kristen Bell’s.

And finally, Justin Timberlake’s new song Can’t Stop The Feeling. Well, it’s definitely a crowd-pleaser. Really infectious. You’ll be hearing it at every single wedding you go to this season, a song for everyone from the kids to the grandparents. I’ve embedded the video below.
Programming note: I’m heading to LA today on assignment for etalk on a 10am flight which means I’ll be in the air for most of the blogging day. Several posts have been prepared in advance to go up during that time. (Get ready for some gloat from Sarah!) And I’ll get to any breaking news, Smutty Social Media, and Smutty Tingles when I land. Sorry in advance for any inconvenience.
Have a great weekend!

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
Someone gave Mena Suvari an Oscar – but is this a jinx gift? Does it affect your luck if you are ever up for a real one? I'm so honored for all the love and support around me, as it gives life to what I do, but this is by far the best gift an admirer has given me! Made especially for me and weighted just as such a real one is! So super cool and touching!!! Thank you #EdwardFEIHU! 🙏🏽❤️🙏🏽 Full Story
Scandal Season 5 Episode 17 recap Well, it’s happening. They are doing it. They are pointing out exactly what happens if you’ve been keeping secrets for the president for years, and kidnapped and sold, and you can’t keep track of whether it’s your father or your ex-boyfriend who has killed more people – well, until you take into account your other ex-boyfriend. Full Story
Scandal Season 5 Episode 16 recap Hands up if you only really woke up when Mellie read Mean Tweets about herself. That woman is a ray of sunshine, and if Marcus’s only purpose on this show is to get her out of her head and onto the Jimmy Kimmel stage, then he has fulfilled his destiny. Because let’s be honest, he doesn’t actually have one at Pope & Associates, and everyone knows it. Full Story
Scandal Season 5 Episode 14 recap Man, the subtext is really, really becoming text here. In large part, this episode is about Abby being hungry, deciding that well-behaved women never make history, and grabbing for what she wants. In large part, this is about Olivia explaining to Quinn why she’s been gone for so long, why she’s wearing colour, why she’s spying on Jake. Full Story
