The Soapbox: “Scandal” Lazily Relies On A Rape Scene To Make A Hated Character More Sympathetic

The Soapbox: "Scandal" Lazily Relies On A Rape Scene To Make A Hated Character More Sympathetic

Spoilers ahead!

I watch a lot of television. One of my mother’s favorite stories involves her coming home from work and finding a three year-old me on her couch, pointing to a schedule grid in her TV Guide and asking to watch a primetime “Scooby Doo” special. As such I have a vast amount of useless pop culture knowledge. I can remember who shot J.R., when Sam first kissed Diane, and why I still want to kick Damon Lindelof in the balls over the “Lost” finale. I also remember a lot of really, really unnecessary rape scenes.

Like Laura Spencer’s rape on “General Hospital.” Krystle Carrington’s rape on “Dynasty.” Liz Spencer’s rape on “General Hospital.” Kelly Taylor’s rape on “Beverly Hills, 90210.” Naomi Clark’s rape on “90210.” Joan Holloway’s rape on “Mad Men.” Tara Thorton’s rape on “True Blood.” Gemma Morrow’s rape on “Sons of Anarchy.” Gillian Darmody’s rape on “Boardwalk Empire.” Buffy Summers’ almost-rape on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Madison Montgomery’s rape on “American Horror Story: Coven.” [Warning: Spoilers after the jump.] Keep reading »

Kerry Washington On Lesbian Rumors: “There’s No Reason To Be Offended”

“It’s interesting how much people long to fill in the gaps when someone in the public eye doesn’t share their personal life. I understand their frustration. I like how people will post pictures of me with other women that I adore, hugging on red carpets, and say, ‘See?’ Are we so uncomfortable with love between two people of the same gender that we immediately label it as sexual? But I’ve never been bothered by the lesbian rumor. There’s nothing offensive about it, so there’s no reason to be offended.

“Scandal” star Kerry Washington is notoriously private about her personal life. She married in secret in June and has not publicly commented on the rumor, according to Us Weekly, that she is pregnant with her first child. And, she notes on the Advocate‘s blog, people are all too happy to speculate that because she isn’t showing off her man all around town, it must mean she must be a lesbian.  Being a lesbian is fine, of course, but don’t people realize there’s more than one reason a celebrity might ask for privacy?

After the jump, here’s Washington on reaching African-Americans about issues facing gay couples through “Scandal,” as well as the similarities between ‘passing’ as white and being in the closet: Keep reading »

Scott Foley Reminds Us That Noel From “Felicity” Was Fake, So We All Need To Move On

As a NYU student who attended while “Felicity” was on the air, I can admit to imagining (depending on which one Felicity was dating at the moment), that either Noel Crane or Ben Covington was my boyfriend.  Or at least that I should be dating someone like Ben or Noel. No such luck. When “Felicity” ended, and I graduated, I went through a period of grief over my imaginary boyfriends (and Felicity) and the real-life ones that never materialized. It’s good to know that I’m not the only one. During a recent press junket for “Scandal,” one of the reporters lamented to Scott Foley about how she went to NYU expecting to meet her Noel, but never did. After the jump, Foley’s tough love response: Keep reading »
