In honor of #Scandal Season 4!
May Olivia Pope the Fixer come back full force, and may she come back to her senses & leave Joke stranded! ^^

Around 70 hours of work, many nervous breakdowns and an aching body later, I hope you like it :)
Wow, you are very talented.
"Sometimes I tweet about my parents because I can’t resist. I do tweet about my dog but not my marriage or my kid.” - Kerry Washington
"I try and just… hanging out with my family, my wife, my kid, I have two…
Hmmm, I often refer to my daughter as “my kid”. Does this mean Tony and Kerry are her real parents? If so, I’m gonna have to file for some child support. The kid has quite a mind and I see a very expensive college in our future.
This season will be Fitz feeling guilty for getting his son killed by committing the outrageous sin of falling in love with Olivia Pope. Just throw that on the pile of things that everyone blames Fitz for: Joke ending up in B613, Big Jerry raping Mellie, everyone else rigging the election, Amanda…
But how can a relationship be “fun, happy, and romantic” when one party in the relationship is clearly in love with another person. That does not compute. My real life experience tells me that one or both parties will be miserable. That description will either be the facade that Olake presents publicly, while a shitstorm is happening behind closed doors (a mirror reflection of the Mellitz relationship). Or Shonda was just throwing the audience off from the real trajectory of the story.
I think it’s easy to be in a “fun, happy, and romantic” relationship when you are completely ignoring reality. Problem is that you can only ignore reality for so long, because reality has a way of refusing to be ignored. Even if Jake and Olivia are having fun together where ever they are, it won’t last because life just doesn’t work that way and because that story won’t generate any dramatic tension which is necessary for the show to thrive.
Tony Goldwyn with Sway In The Morning
Scandal’s Tony Goldwyn on Dating Black Women, Working w Patrick Swayze, & Exec Producing The Divide.
This was kinda…hate to say…ratchet. I mean, Sway is always inappropriate (see his previous interviews with Bells, Kerry and Scott…anyone really)…he’s no Oprah, lol. But asking Tony if he’s ever “dated black” or disrobed a black woman is kinda gross. It’s also disrespectful to his wife. I think Tony knows that the tone of the show is super playful and inappropriate at times and just kinda laughed it off. I enjoyed the rest of it though.
but why is he being asked that question now though? i’m so suspicious of this. he was not asked this question through all of his promotions of scandal and now all of a sudden this is a question. is he trying to recreate the same type of fervor for his show that happened with scandal? we know that black women help put scandal on the map so is this an effort to try and put this new show on the map like that?…and it’s totally rude and inconsiderate of these hosts to be asking a married man of 27 years if he has dated a black woman.
He was asked that question last year by Andy Cohen and he dodged the question.
interesting…i didn’t watch that interview with cohen (not really interested)…so he chose to answer it now that he is out promoting his show…ok. i get it….but what about his wife? the respect to her? it makes me wonder about him a little now…i get that he is doing what it takes to keep his job but i don’t know that i care for this method…
Why is his wife being disrespected. I doubt they were each other’s first. Why would she be offended - especially a whole lifetime later?
I’m more offended that Jane is being portrayed as this weak-minded, and weak-willed woman who can’t handle the attention her husband receives from “thirsty” women or the fact that he…..Surprise!!!……. dated other women (including black women) before marrying her. They have 27 years invested, trust me this isn’t worst she’s seen or heard. Give the woman some credit, if his actions were as egregious as some are making them out to be, I would think she’d put an end to whatever it is he’s doing to “disrespect” her. Out of curiosity, where is the disrespect? Again, after 27 years do you not think that she pretty much knows about his dating history? And if she didn’t know, so what, he married her not the black woman (or any other women for that matter) he dated. I’m not married but I’ve been with the same guy for almost 6 years and I could care less who he dated before me. (black, white, asian, etc) I’m secure enough in myself to not let that kind of thing bother me. And guess what? His ex-wife makes occasional appearances at the same gatherings we attend together and we talk. Do I think it’s disrespectful that she’s invited? No, because if he wanted her he would still be with her.
These folks don’t give a hot damn about Jane to that extent. I agree with what you’ve suggested is the nature of their nearly three decades long relationship. I really don’t get the hysteria over this. I saw/see nothing worth getting worked up over w/regards to Tony.
To the bolded - that is because you and skidivame are rational people who aren’t engaged in this very strange narrative going on re: Tony Goldwyn having so much influence over Kerry Washington’s brand/life/etc.. You’re able to look at things without that bias. Those that have decided that they know the details of TG’s marriage, Kerry’s childhood, etc., are simply not speaking rationally at this point. I’ve come to the conclusion that some of the people in the fandom I used to respect simply must have a platform to be loud and bray on about SOMETHING. They’ve realized the Terriers are a lost cause (uh, duh) and are not going to let go, so they’ve gone after others. It’s TG now, it will be someone else at some point. All of this hoopla is completely and totally ridiculous.
wineandcaffeine skidivame, etc. Can I sit with you all? The constant over-examination of Tony Goldwyn’s words and behavior has gotten to be too much. I think much of it started as a sincere attempt to counter balance some of the Terry madness, but it’s turned into the flip side of the same coin. Same tactics, same drama, same over-reaction to every little thing, same acting like they know things and have insights that others don’t have, same style venomous attacks on folks who don’t seem to deserve to be attacked.
Christine’s man is cool, he’s giving me Elliot Stabler blur the lines of the law/ protector vibes. Her dad’s pretty charismatic for a con on deathrow too.
Yeah, he’s cool.
I like the…
People on a righteous mission are often annoying. The become single-minded and obsessive and that makes them hard to be around. I think her character reflects that.
Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.
The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.
Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:
You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.
The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)
I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.
Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.
Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.
If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.
Reblogging for signal boost, and to add TW
how can a fully functioning navy sailor still use such imbecile language that would be typically used among premature 12 year old boys and idiotic misogynistic mras
My husband is a retired Master Chief Petty Officer and he was aware of this case through his Navy-related social networking connections. Believe me, that young sailor is having his thinking corrected. He has brought down upon himself a raft of shit.
