Kerry Washington was commended for being the first Black woman with a leading role on primetime television in over thirty-eight years after landing her role in ABC’s hit drama Scandal. Actress Meagan Good has also recently joined the primetime ranks with her new NBC thriller, Deception. Of course, as news of Meagan’s show hit the circuit, folks everywhere quickly began to compare the two primetime thrillers and one would think that Kerry may not have been so happy about giving up her title as the only Black woman with a primetime slot, but Kerry says not so! The Django Unchained actress recently took to Twitter to express her support for Meagan and just in time to stop any troublemakers looking to start rumors of a “secret beef” dead in their tracks.

“I’m sooooo happy for @MeaganGood and EXCITED for her new show #Deception – LOVE the billboards! Congrats Beautiful  XO,” Kerry tweeted.

“EXCITED for @meagangood tonight!!!! Sending hugs and prayers your way #DECEPTION.”

Meagan, both humbled and surprised by the love she received from Kerry, quickly replied.

“Wow…. Thank you so much … God is good.”

“That means a lot to me  Godbless you and your show is awesome!!! I’m blown away @ the grace of God.”

“Freaking @kerrywashington tweeted me her support/love–I so respect&admire her.Just means a lot #humbled. @kerrywashington Godbless you too!!!!! … And thank you again.”

The Deception star also recently expressed her love and admiration for Kerry as well as how thankful she was for her support in an interview with The Wall Street Journal

“It’s pretty amazing. I think she is so beautiful and so talented as an actress.I love everything that she does. For me it was like wow—I was really thankful that she reached out, and was offering her support and just showing love. She had told me before that she had seen me in “Brick” and had sent me a message I didn’t get. When I saw her in person she told me she supported me and wanted me to do well. I’m in awe because I think she’s fantastic.”

So much for that “there’s only room for one” theory!  It’s great to see these beautiful Black women supporting one another. I also love the fact that the shows are not in direct competition, considering they air at different times.

What do you think of Deception so far?

    I guarantee she will be sleeping with white men through out the show the same Kerry is doing in Scandal. Its pathetic how blk people got to sellout just to make it in Hollywood. Now some of you women love the fact that blk women got bang white boys on film just to get roles but trust me that’s not cool.

    I knew Meagan’s show would do well. Plenty of men love them some Meagan Good.

  • Some Black men are not gonna be happy reading this…lol

  • sabrina

    I couldn’t get past how beautiful she looked lol but it was pretty decent. I love Megan and what she represents so I have no problem supporting her 🙂

    Love Kerry; that’s my girl!!

    I was kind of skeptical about Deception because honestly, I wasn’t convinced that Megan could play that type of role. For years she has been typecast as the same type of chick in the same groupie, sex kitten role. I was pleasantly surprised because I watched the first episode
    and it was good! For everyone that complains about the portrayal of African American women on TV and deplore all the reality shows, please give this show a try and support these actresses so that their shows stay on-air!

    Grown Black women know how to support and embrace each other! Thanks for the positive examples, Kerry and Meaghan 🙂

    • Lola

      Exactly! We do support each other; we just refuse to BLINDLY support foolishness under the guise of “sistas must stick together”. For example, a black woman posing half naked in magazines and/or in videos is not something that most of us would support.
