kerry washington covers vanity fair

Well done, Vanity Fair, for shooting the brainy and beautiful Kerry Washington for your August cover. Even on the cool blue tiles of a swimming pool, the lovely “Scandal” star is sizzling hot. She just landed her first ladymag cover on Elle last month, so it figures the woman who plays Olivia Pope would dominate Vanity Fair by summer’s end. This is one issue I can’t wait to arrive in my mailbox.  [Jezebel]

7 TV Shows That Have Seriously Sexy Sex

With TV getting raunchier and more graphic every year, are you satisfied with the sex on your screen? The New York Times says that the sex on TV isn’t sexy anymore. We disagree. The Joylessness of Sex on TV discusses shows like “Homeland,” “The Americans,” and “House of Cards,” where sex is used as a ploy for personal gain instead of pleasure. It’s a valid point, but it doesn’t cover that broad of a spectrum. There are plenty of other shows out there doing sex in innovative and, well, sexy ways. Look at “Girls,” where the sex is pure awkwardness, and “Arrested Development,” where the sex is openly comical.

But what are we doing naming shows where the sex isn’t sexy? That’s just silly. You came here to find the best sex on television. These are the shows that are doing sex right. A collection of the shows with the hottest, steamiest, most salacious scenes that won’t inspire any critical analyses in newspapers. Keep reading »

“Josh Malina [who plays David Rosen] has left me messages that he’s a police detective and that he wants to question me. It’d scare the hell out of me. He did the same thing to Katie, saying he was a tabloid reporter and wanted scoop on the actors of ‘Scandal.’ He’s so bad. He’ll take our phones and tweet things like ‘I’m horny’ on Twitter and retweet it real fast. He’s a little shit. Me or Darby [Stanchfield, who plays Abby] are the more serious ones. For me, it’s because of my character. I try to stay low-key, in that Huck headspace. Columbus [Short, who plays Harrison] is the dancer. On Fridays after we wrap, he loves to give a little strip dance. He starts taking off his suspenders in front of everybody. Kerry [Washington, a.k.a. Olivia Pope] loves to sing; she’s a beautiful singer.”

– Tucked into this New York magazine Q&A (with spoilers!!!!) with Guillermo Diaz, who plays Huck on “Scandal,” are a few tidbits about his cast members’ off-camera behavior. As it turns out, hottie Columbus Short (pictured), who sizzles with sexual tension alongside Olivia Pope as her righthand man Harrison, likes to strip down at cast parties. Shonda Rimes, if you have any humanity in your heart whatsoever, you will write this into a plot. [NYMag.com]

Franchesca Ramsey Scandal Olivia Pope
"You're Olivia Pope"

Franchesca Ramsey (AKA Chescaleigh) from “Shit White Girls Say” has a new YouTube video out and this one is for the “Scandal” fans. It probably only makes sense if:

  1. You watch “Scandal” and YouTube makeup tutorials.
  2. You think Olivia and Harrison’s relationship is weird.
  3. The cadence of speech in Shonda Rimes’ scripts is getting to you.

All that being said, it’s hilarious: “You’re a fixer. That’s what you do. You fix things. And you’re going to fix your face because it’s half done and it looks weird.”  Bonus points for Creepy Jake at the end. [YouTube]

I’ve been doing my utmost to debate less, but it’s hard when you’re as naturally opinionated as I am.  This is compounded by the fact I come from a highly opinionated gene pool. Our family dinners sometimes spiral into debates. And when I say “sometimes,” I really mean 90 percent of the time.

Usually my mother plays referee, and when I say “referee,” I mean she’ll eventually shout, “Will you all be quiet!” My father plays the contrarian, opposing whatever view I hold. And my sisters may or may not be on my side.

I thought everyone did this — debate over dinner, as an expression of love and then pretend like nothing happened. Apparently not! Dinner is for small talk. So I’ve been trying to reprogram myself whenever I go out, because my opinions can be a bit disruptive. Keep reading »

Last year’s anti-Semitism scandal saw John Galliano ousted unceremoniously from both Christian Dior and his own eponymous label, but there are two sides to every story, which may have something to do with why the besmirched former creative director is now suing the fashion house for the grand sum of $18.8 million.

Bizarre ESPN Scandal Involving Young, Female Gambling “Expert” Will Make Your Brain Explode

There is quite a bit of buzz surrounding ESPN today, because apparently they were duped by someone named Sarah Phillips, who they hired to write a column for their site on sports betting. While ESPN thought she was a college student in her 20s who just happened to have a very firm knowledge of gambling and placing bets, some are now claiming she is nothing but a savvy Internet fraud.

While the question Who exactly is Sarah Phillips? seems highly debatable and confusing at best, it’s still kind of crazy that someone as big as ESPN is at the middle of the whole scandal. Read more…

Hot damn, Shonda Rhimes, it’s good to be you. Rhimes, the writer responsible for “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice,” has just made her third — yes, third — sale to a major network this year. “The Circle,” which was bought by ABC, is billed as an hour-long drama about “10 friends, adopted as children by a billionaire philanthropist, who begin to question their past when one of their own is murdered.” Earlier this year, Fox laid claim to “Wildwood,” a drama about an underage girl who weasels her way into a bartending gig on the Jersey Shore. (No matter the underage debauchery, we’re sure that it’ll be a classier update to MTV’s reality show!) And finally, the spectacular Kerry Washington will star in Rhimes’ D.C. drama “Scandal” on ABC.   Congratulations, Ms. Rhimes! Now quit it, you’re making the rest of us look lazy.
