“Harrison Has Met His End”: Shonda Rhimes Drops Spoilers About Season 4 Of “Scandal,” Including Premiere Date
Season three of Scandal left me scratching my head, but as always, anxious for season four: Olivia left her Gladiators behind to fly off to Lord knows where with Jake, now free from B-613; Fitz and Mellie are trying to keep it together after her rape came out and the shocking loss of their son; After tongue swapping with Quinn, she leads Huck back to his family; and Papa Pope has duped everyone and is now back on top as head of B-613, capping that all off by putting Maya back in jail and a bullet in Harrison’s head. Talk about drama!
If you’re super ready for the fourth season, according to BuzzFeed, the show will premiere on September 25 at 9 p.m. (not its usual 10 p.m. slot). The show will lead into Shonda Rhimes’ new program, How To Get Away With Murder, which of course stars Viola Davis. And Scandal will return to its max of 22 episodes after only airing 18 last season to accommodate Kerry Washington’s pregnancy.
So what can we expect from season four after all those cliffhangers? TV Guide chatted with Rhimes about picking up where she left off:
If There Will Be A Time Jump:
When we leave, she’s on a plane headed to God knows where. When we come back into the season, we find ourselves in a surprising place both time-wise and location-wise.
What’s Going To Happen With The Love Triangle Of Olivia, Fitz And Jake:
I always think about the finale when she says to him very clearly, “I am in love with another man.” And he says, “Let’s go anyway.” He goes off with her knowing full well that she’s very clear about her feelings for somebody else. So, whatever that relationship is, as fun or romantic or happy as that will be, she’s very clearly in love with another man. I don’t know what that holds for them. They have to face whatever that’s going to mean.
What’s Next For Mellie And Fitz:
It’s interesting because we’re not just dealing with what happened to Mellie. You have to remember that everything that happens now takes place [after] the death of their child. [Fitz has] the knowledge that, as far as he knows, Olivia’s mother was responsible for the death of their child, and that basically, in a weird way, he is at fault for the death of their child. If he had not been involved with Olivia, none of that would’ve happened. Post the death of the child, he has some care-taking to do. He feels a responsibility to take care of [Mellie]. Whether or not he loves her, whether or not that relationship is viable isn’t really a factor right now. He’s got responsibilities to take care of.
What’s Next For Huck And His Family:
Our first thought about Huck knocking [on his wife's] door and what became of Huck knocking on that door when we really played it out in our minds is very, very different. It’s very heartbreaking. When we come back at the beginning of the season, everybody is in a place that you don’t expect. Nothing is what you think it could possibly have turned out to be. There’s a real sense of, “How did everybody get here?!
What’s Next For The Abandoned Gladiators:
One of the things that we did specifically when we created the show is slowly deploy people’s stories. It was purposeful. Season 4 is Abby’s season. That was by design. A lot of what we know about Abby happens this season. A lot of what we discover about her and see about her back story will happen as we tell Abby’s story.
What’s Next For Harrison:
It’s safe to assume that Harrison has met his end.
What are your hopes for season four? I’m personally hoping that now that the bloody re-election campaign is over, Olivia will return to her Gladiators and her cases and maybe even meet a new man. But I won’t hold my breath. Someone else who doesn’t know what to expect is Kerry Washington, but she recently told USA Today that she’s embracing the unknown.
“We don’t have a script yet, I don’t even know if that plane is going to Turks and Caicos or maybe it had engine trouble and is right back in D.C. I don’t know where she’s going. It’s pretty crazy. You can’t thrive with this material unless you’re willing to embrace the unknown. I’m type A, hyper prepared – it challenges me to surrender to these writers.”

All of you ladies that look at Olivia Pope’s outfits every week and think to yourself,” Oohh, wouldn’t I love a jacket like that,” today is your day. The Limited has announced a Scandal-inspired line of clothing that won’t break your bank account into a million pieces.
Many of the fashions that Kerry Washington is rocking in-character are from some pricey labels. Normally, her clothes come from design labels like Burberry and Michael Kors. And Saks Fifth Avenue has designed its windows based on fashions from the show, so Kerry and the crew are definitely a high-end crowd.
But The Limited is offering an affordable alternative that will be designed in part by the popular show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo and The Limited’s design head Elliot Staples. According to WWD, Washington was also in touch via Skype, email, FedEx, in person and any other way possible to have a hand in the design process.
The line will also make an appearance on the show along with other promotions through social media and possibly commercials. WWD says The Limited is also in talks with ABC, so we could see some bigger campaign or promotions on the way.
Items will range in price from $49 to $248. There will be 42 different pieces to choose from, and you’ll be able to purchase the clothing from 250 The Limited stores located in malls around the country and on the company’s website. The line will arrive in September.
Are you already practicing the Olivia Pope strut to go with your hot new power pants?
I need to get on the Kerry Washington bounce back plan ASAP because last night when the “Scandal” star made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth her entire look — particularly that body — said “what baby?!’
Kerry gave birth to her first child, daughter Isabel, seven weeks ago, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at the actress taking pics for photogs at the Women In Film 2014 Crystal Lucy Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in LA last night.
The new mom paired a Max Mara cocktail dress with a plunging neckline and spattered paint skirt with orange pumps that had just the perfect amount of detail on the toe to match her colorful ensemble. During the gala, Kerry was recognized with the Lucy Award by “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes and we hear her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, was also in attendance and looked rather dapper in a suit.
Kerry and Nnamdi welcomed their daughter Isabel to the world on April 21 at Cedars-Sinai in LA, though the rest of us didn’t find out until two whole weeks later. Just this week Kerry participated in a Google Hangout with the LA Times and talked about new motherhood, saying:
“I just feel really blessed that I’m kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life.”
We must say, you look very blessed too Kerry! Check out more pics of the starlet below. Gorgeous right?
At this point, we all know that Kerry Washington is not a fan of discussing her personal life with the public. But during a recent Google Hangout with the LA Times, the “Scandal” actress let down her guard just a teeny tiny bit when posed with a question about returning to work since giving birth to her baby girl.
“So tricky because you know I don’t talk about this stuff,” she explained. But I will say I feel really, really blessed.”
While she wouldn’t say much about how she’s juggling it all, Kerry did express gratitude for being able to live out her dreams.
“I just feel really blessed that I’m kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life.”
Kerry and new husband Nnamdi Asomugha welcomed little Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles last month. Sources close to the actress say she announced the birth in a simple email, which read:
“Isabelle is here.”
Lol, typical Kerry, never giving up too much.
Since the U.S. Census Bureau has been keeping record, interracial marriages have been on the rise. While there are more than 2.4 million mixed marriages in the U.S., Hollywood has been a bit slow in keeping up with times and portraying more interracial couples, but low and behold we’ve managed to find a few favorites over the years. Take a look.
“I Love Lucy’s” Ricky and Lucy Ricardo
Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were one of, if not the first, interracial couple on television. Debuting in 1951, “ I Love Lucy” made groundbreaking history when it aired with the real-life husband and wife stars. The show followed the antics played out by comedian Lucille Ball while her husband looked helplessly on. The show lasted for six seasons and more than 60 years later, “I Love Lucy” remains popular with over 40 million Americans still tuning in.

Beauty is in the eye of the holder and for these celebs who have jungle fever, they see no color when it comes to dating someone outside of their race.
Perhaps best known as magneto in the blockbuster franchise X-Men, Michael Fassbender knew he wanted to be an actor since he was 17 years old. His first role came in the television miniseries “Band of Brothers.” The German-Irish actor has been romantically linked to actress Nicole Baharie and Leasi Andrews. He also dated Zoe Kravitz for several years. Recently rumors were sparked last month when the 12 Years a Slave actor was spotted hugging and kissing supermodel Naomi Campbell while dining at a London restaurant.

Kerry Washington Speaks On Motherhood For The First Time As She Thanks Fans For Their Love On Mother’s Day
Kerry Washington was one of many moms celebrating their first Mother’s Day yesterday. As you know, she gave birth to her daughter, Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha, on the low low in April. Isabelle is the 37-year-old’s first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha. One to keep her personal life very private, Washington hadn’t put out any statements about being a new mom after TMZ revealed the news about her giving birth, but she did finally say something about motherhood on Twitter yesterday. After fans said Happy Mother’s Day to the star, she gave in and said thank you–but made it clear that she wouldn’t talk about her business:
She also went on to shout out all the mothers of the world:
Of course, Washington decided to keep her business to herself years ago. In an interview with Glamour last year, she said that she tried to be open about her personal life in the past, and didn’t like it in the end:
“I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life. I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine [InStyle Weddings, in 2005, when Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow]. But I couldn’t just turn around and say, ‘I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.’ So I just thought, OK, no more.”
Last week, we learned that Kerry Washington gave birth to a baby girl. And of course, due to her determination to keep her personal life under lock and key, that’s about all we learned. According to People, sources claiming to be close to the “Scandal” actress say that’s about all her family, friends and co-stars know as well.
Following the birth of baby Isabelle, sources say Kerry sent only her closest family, friends and co-stars a simple email, which reads:
“Isabelle is here.”
Despite her seemingly calm announcement, one source adds that the new mom was extremely excited about the birth of her first child.
“Kerry spent the last couple of weeks before baby really hunkering down and getting ready.”
“Kerry has always wanted to have children. She’s nurturing and she’s a natural caretaker. Plus she’s hilarious! Their little girl will definitely have a sense of humor.”
Suprisingly, another sources say that the 37-year-old actress didn’t even respond to the all of the congratulatory messages that came pouring in after her announcement, as she was too busy bonding with her new bundle of joy.
“Kerry is at home busy with the baby.”
And as to be expected, a friend adds that there are no photos of the baby floating around—not even among the actresses most intimate circle.
“She hasn’t sent pictures or invited anyone to see her yet, but mom and baby are doing well.”
Though we’re dying to see pictures of the new addition, we understand, Kerry.
