I know you were not disappointed last night. The season finale managed to close just enough doors to provide closure but open up one very big one to get us ready for the next season. It’s going to be a long wait until September but after last night’s episode, we’re sure folks will be more than willing to tune in.
‘I Thought I’d Have To Sedate Cast Members!’ Shonda Rhimes Talks Revealing The Mole To ‘Scandal’ Cast
If you’re a “Scandal” fanatic like we are, we know you’ve been sitting on pins and needles every week trying to figure out who the heck the mole is on the TV show. It’s hard enough trying to figure out whether Jake is a good guy or not and whether we really want Olivia and Fitz to be together — not to mention keeping up with Cyrus’s antics – but this mole thing has just about everybody racking their brains, including the “Scandal” cast, according to Shonda Rhimes.
The creator of the ABC drama recently talked to The Hollywood Reporter about the biggest plot of season 2 and she said this about the big reveal:
“When we revealed who the mole was to the cast, cast members literally got up from the table and ran around the table screaming, which was hilarious. Then when we revealed the twist on the twist of who the mole was, I thought I’d have to sedate cast members because people were freaking out, which was awesome. It’s not just who the mole is, it’s who the mole is working with and what’s going on there that’s even bigger than just who the mole is. We’re really proud of who the mole is, that’s a pretty surprising twist but it’s even bigger than that.”
Considering there are only two weeks left in the season, we’re all wondering if we’ll get to find out who the mole is by May 16. All Shonda let on is how the season finale sets up the third season, telling THR:
“It leads into it quite well. We’re going to leave everybody over the summer, I hope, with their mouths hanging open a little bit asking how the hell they’re going to get out of this, which is our goal. We know how we’re ending the season and now we’re trying to figure out how we’re getting out of it (laughs). We end the season in a way that explodes the premise of the show in a way that’s good and strong and hopefully sticks with bold story telling.”
Well, at least that bids well for a third season of our favorite prime time drama. Any guesses on who the mole may be?
We’ve come to the end of the road for our “Hollywood Exes” and it’s been one wild ride but it looks like all of the ladies have accomplished the goals they set for themselves at the beginning of the season. Sheree has been set on staying in LA since episode one but she knows that the distance between her and her husband would cause problems in their relationship. She decides that the best thing to do to buy extra time to make her decision about whether to move or stay is to buy her hubby a Harley motorcycle.Even though she doesn’t like the idea of her husband having a bike, she thinks that she can use it as a tool to get what she wants. Smart thinking, Sheree.

Tami may still have her job on “Basketball Wives” for now, but she’s just lost another on. Not long ago, Sister 2 Sister magazine made Tami and her daughter columnists but now that she’s effed that up she can kiss that gig goodbye.
In a clip from the last episode of the show, Tami went in on Jennifer and tells her she knows she was talking ish about Evelyn because she did it in an interview for Sister 2 Sister and the mag’s publisher, Jamie Foster Brown, personally told her. That obviously doesn’t speak too well for the magazine’s journalistic ethics, which is why they hurried up and cleared up that rumor—and fired Tami. Here’s what they said in a statement:
“Contrary to what you may have heard, Sister 2 Sister did not send a transcript to a member of the “Basketball Wives” cast.
“On the season 4 finale of “Basketball Wives” it was implied that Sister 2 Sister gave Tami Roman a transcript of a conversation that Publisher Jamie Foster Brown had with Tami’s co-star Jennifer Williams. We would like to state that those accusations are wrong.
“There is no transcript of the exchange that we believe Tami is talking about at the 14:25 mark. We never had that talk typed out because it was off the record. Simply put, Tami could not have read a copy of the chat because it does not exist.
“S2S did post a story that included comments Jennifer made during her exchange with Jamie, which was republished by a number of sites. It is possible that Tami was referring to one of those postings.”
Oh and one more thing:
“We would also like to inform our readers that Tami is no longer writing an advice column for our magazine. The last edition of “Ask Tami & Lyric” is in the June 2012 issue of Sister 2 Sister.”
Hilarious. VH1 might be down for the bull and the lies, but Sister 2 Sister is not. There’s nothing like reduced income to make a person change their ways. Get the message Tams.
Here’s the full episode of the last season to check out her altercation with Jen. Did you pick up on Tami saying she had inside info from the mag?

*The death knell for ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” is starting to sound, with just several months left before the show airs its final episode ever.
Speculation about how the ladies of Wisteria Lane will bow out has already begun among fans, and even among cast members. Will the show end with big question marks, leaving room for a possible feature film? Will there be closure with the main characters? Is someone going to die?
“I think fans want the girls to survive,” said co-star Vanessa Williams, who joined the show in 2010 as Renee Perry. “I mean no matter what catastrophe happens, the women need to survive. I think the fans would go crazy if that didn’t happen.”
See (and hear) what else Williams had to say about the show and the role over at EurWeb.com.
