You Won’t Get A Peep Out Of Kerry About Her New Marriage But She Is “Very Blessed”
It’s been quite the summer for actress Kerry Washington. First marriage, then an Emmy nomination –– what more can the actress ask for?
In a recent interview with PEOPLE, a very private Washington dished a little on her recent marriage to San Francisco 49er cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, 32, on June 24th in Blaine County, Idaho. “I don’t talk about my personal life in the press, but I will say I’m really happy.” Almost two weeks later was the icing on the cake, the Scandal star had been Emmy nominated for Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Olivia Pope. “I’m the luckiest broad in showbiz,” she gushed, “I just feel really blessed and humbled and grateful for this nomination.” 36-year-old Washington is the first black actress to be nominated since Cicely Tyson in 1994.
Kerry says she hasn’t decided who her date will be to the awards. As you know, she usually takes her parents! You can check out the rest on Essence.com.
Do you think we’ll ever hear more about Kerry’s relationship with Nnamdi or do you think she’ll keep up the “Don’t talk to me about my personal life” bit?
