  • Shonda Rhimes shut down homophobes on Twitter like a badass after haters criticized the love scenes in her shows that feature gay characters.

Shonda Rhimes Has Already Decided When “Scandal” Will End

  • Shonda Rhimes said ”Scandal” has an expiration date and it will come sooner than we thought. “I think there’s only so much ‘Scandal’ you can tell satisfactorily,” the showrunner told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s not a 10-season or eight-season show. I’ve already decided how long that is and what that’s going to be.” Bummer. [THR]

  • Uh oh: Matt Lauer was spotted in the Hamptons with a “smoking hot blonde” ladyfriend who was most definitely not his wife. This news comes from the ever-questionable National Enquirer, so there’s still an excuse to hold out hope that he’s not a cheating-faced cheater. [Jezebel]
  • Jason Biggs tweeted some icky jokes about the Malaysian Airlines plane that crashed this morning, and then got super defensive when people called him an asshole. Ugh. [Mediaite] Keep reading »

Kerry Washington Wants Women In Film To Step Up

“So, I want to tell on myself, because a dear friend of mine, Pat Mitchell, who herself is a badass woman in the business, having run PBS and the Payley Center for Media, she called me a few years ago, because she for a long time worked for TED … She called and said, ‘I’m going to be running TED Women and I would love for you to speak.’ And I said, ‘You know, gosh, you know what, Pat, I really appreciate the invitation, but I just don’t know really know what I would say, I’m not sure what my story would be, I think I should decline, and maybe when I’m ready I’ll come do that.’ And Pat said to me, ‘Kerry, I’ve worked with TED for a really long time. No man has ever said to me, I’m not ready to speak, but for TED Women you are part of a long list of women who have denied me by saying they’re not ready.’ And I realized that what that meant is that we as women put ourselves in this situation of feeling like we can’t take a risk, like in order to step out there we have to be perfect, because we’re scared that if we don’t say the right thing, or do the right thing, that we’ll reflect poorly on ourselves and our community, whether that community be women, people of color, both.

11 Shows You Need To Watch If You Want To Be Relevant

To this day, I think I might be one of the only people on earth who has never seen an episode of “Breaking Bad.” Even though the series has ended, its legend lives on, and I still find myself excluded from any and all Walter White-related water cooler conversation. But once a show has been on the air for a while, it seems like a daunting task to start watching from the beginning, sometimes having to catch up on several seasons, just to be able to understand why everyone keeps saying “bitch” at the end of every sentence. But I learned the hard way: it’s better to be late to the game than to never show up at all. If you’re crippled by FOMO and want to feel like you’re relevant in society, you should be watching at least one of these TV shows with cult followings … even if it means locking yourself inside for the rest of spring. Your street cred will thank you.
