Olivia Pope can handle just about everything…except maybe all the long and eloquent speeches Shonda Rhimes writes for her!
Yes, it’s true: even Olivia Pope gets tongue-tied. Or rather, Kerry Washington gets tongue-tied, just like the rest of the Scandal cast, and we’ve got it all on video!
E! News has your exclusive look at the Scandal season three gag reel from the DVD (available Sept. 23), and it’s filled with almost every single cast member royally screwing up their lines. From Washington to Scott Foley to Columbus Short to Jeff Perry, no one is immune to a line flub here and there.
But which cast member screws up their lines the most? Watch the exclusive video below to find out!
Trick question…it’s not a regular cast member at all. It’s actually guest star Paul Adelstein!
Adelstein plays rival fixer Leo Bergen on the ABC hit drama, and while he appears cool, calm and collected in the face of having to fix his client, the Vice President of the United States, murdering her own husband and going crazy, his bloopers are as hilarious as can be.
When Scandal returns for season four, there are going to be some major shake-ups in the cast. First, Short will not be returning as OPA gladiator Harrison, since he exited the series this past spring after he was arrested and charged with battery after an alleged bar fight in March. “At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today,” Short said in a statement. “I would like to first thank Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas.”
Plus the First Daughter is going to look a little different. E! News confirmed that the role of President Fitz and First Lady Mellie’s daughter Karen Grant has been recast, and Body of Proof’s Mary Mouser will now play the role previously portrayed by Madeline Carroll.
Scandal season four premieres Thursday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
Kerry Washington talked with Access Hollywood this past Saturday night (September 20) at the #TGIT premiere event. She hints a little at the 4th season of “Scandal,” her excitement for the Thursday lineup, and “The Limited” collection clothing line. You can check out the 2-minute interview below. Enjoy!
It’s not easy juggling a job and taking care of a 5-month-old baby. Luckily, Scandal star and new mommy Kerry Washington can draw inspiration from two women close to her who’ve been there, done that.
“My mother was a working mom and she has been a brilliant mother and a brilliant career woman, so she’s been a great role model for me,” the 37-year-old actress, who plays Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal, told E! News.
“And [show creator] Shonda Rhimes is an awesome role model,” she added. “She’s got three kids and three shows, so I got nothing to complain about!”
Washington made her comments on Saturday at ABC’s #TGIT premiere event in West Hollywood, California, where Scandal and two more of Rhimes’ shows were given the spotlight—Grey’s Anatomy and the new series How to Get Away With Murder, which stars The Help actress Viola Davis. Both shows and Scandal, which is returning for season 4 (with newcomer Portia de Rossi!), will all premiere on Thursday, Sept. 25.
The event was hosted by Twitter. Scandal is one of the most tweeted-about shows and its stars often chat with fans.
Washington and husband NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha welcomed their first child together, daughter Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha, in April.
The actress’ co-star Tony Goldwyn told E! News at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmys that the baby is “just the cutest,” which fellow cast member Bellamy Young also gushed about the little girl, making a very spiritual comparison.
Washington, who is as stylish as her Scandal character, appeared at the #TGIT event in a metallic silver and sky blue skater dress and pointed white pumps.
Several more “Shondaland” TV stars also attended the event. The list included Davis and Ellen Pompeo, who plays Meredith on Grey’s Anatomy, which will begin its 11th season
It’s been five months since Kerry Washington welcomed daughter Isabelle Amarachi — and the actress is still in complete baby bliss.
“[Motherhood is] wonderful. We just continue to feel very blessed,” the Scandal star, 37, told PEOPLE on Saturday at Twitter’s #TGIT premiere event for Shondaland’s ABC shows.
But while Washington says her baby girl is hitting major milestones “all the time … it’s pretty amazing,” the new mom is reaching a few postpartum markers of her own.
Washington, who wore a printed mini dress by Mary Katrantzou, credits her love of Pilates with helping her bounce back after giving birth.
“It’s such a great way to get in shape in a loving way,” she explains. “I feel like I’m both challenging myself and healing my body at the same time.”
But although Washington balances her workouts with healthy habits — including sticking to local, organic foods and working with a nutritionist — she isn’t in a rush to regain her svelte shape.
“I still got some work to do since the baby,” she says.
Kerry Washington is making the rounds this upcoming week to promote the season four premiere of “Scandal,” as well as “The Limited” Collection clothing line inspired by the show. She’ll be making solo appearances on GMA, Jimmy Fallon, and Michael & Kelly, but the entire cast of “Scandal” will be appearing on The Ellen Show on premiere day. You can check out the listings below. So be sure to set your DVR’s and mark your calendars!

Kerry Washington joins Barack Obama, as well as other celebrities, including Jon Hamm and Connie Britton, to announce a new public awareness and education education campaign designed to change the culture on college campuses and prevent sexual assault before it happens. The campaign is called “It’s On Us” and will be aimed at changing the culture by inspiring every person on a college campus to take action, big or small, to prevent sexual assault.

You can now view 1,024 medium and high quality photos of Kerry attending various movie premieres, fashion shows, charity events, political events, and more. It was a rather calm year for her compared to the year before.
