Pop Mom: Kerry Washington Says Though She’s In The Public Eye, Her Personal Life Is Not Your Business
During a recent panel discussion at the SXSW music and film conference called “The New Rules Of Social Stardom,” actress Kerry Washington made it clear, again, that she doesn’t talk about her personal life. That means keeping a tight lip, even when divorce rumors swirl, which they do; and get even louder during awards season when Kerry is often on the red carpet solo. Where is husband Nnamdi, everyone wants to know?
I find myself wondering too because I’m a fan of Scandal and sometimes I think about how her husband feels seeing his wife get it on with two men, white guys at that, each week. I mean, she toned down the sex with Jake, but at one point she had him and the President rotating. Maybe he brushes it off as a part of her job, but we don’t know, and won’t anytime soon.
“If I don’t talk about my personal life, it means I don’t talk about my personal life,” she explained. “That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what’s going on in my marriage, I don’t refute them, because I don’t talk about my personal life.”
Clearly, her rules of social stardom gear towards keeping her private life private, but it’s the opposite of what a lot of today’s celebrity couples are doing. Sooo when it comes to relationship, public or private?
On one hand, you have Chrissy Teigen and John Legend who let it all hang out. You’re going to see them, the dog, the kitchen, everybody kissing. And not to be outdone, we have Ciara and Russell Wilson. I feel like we all knew about their engagement two minutes before it happened.
I was checking it out on instagram getting really caught up in the romance. It starts looking like success in love is all about public display, extreme PDA. But does it mean that it last?
