Scandal News

Scandal Details

Scandal comes from the awesome mind and fingers of Shonda Rhimes.

It stars Kerry Washington as a fixer in D.C. named Olivia Pope, someone who can easily handle all political crises and issues, but who is knee deep in them herself:

She's been carrying on an affair for years with the President of the United States! This is the central topic of Olivia's personal life, though more and more covers to light regarding Olivia as the series carries on. We learn a great deal about her scheming parents, for example.

Pope leads a team of self-proclaimed Gladiators, all of whom bring a particular set of skills to the job.

Scandal also stars Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Scott Foley, Jeff Perry, Darby Stanchfield, Guillermo Diaz, Katie Lowes and Joshua Malina.

It's totally crazy, suspenseful and awesome. You should watch every week on Thursday nights on ABC.

Scandal Quotes

Abby: What happens to you happens to me. I'm good at my job, Leo. I am a lion up there. I own that room. I work for it. I give a strong briefing. And they write about that. They cover the news and there are articles about how well I do at my job. But they also write about me. If I wear lipstick, I'm dolled up. If I don't, I've let myself go. They wonder if I'm trying to bring dresses back and they don't like it when I repeat outfits even though I'm on a government salary. They discuss my hair color. There are anonymous blogs that say I'm too skinny. They have a running joke that I'm on a hunger strike until I'm liberated by the Democrats!
Leo: Abby--
Abby: They also write about you. Every article that comes out about me has your name somewhere in it because apparently there's this rule that in order to write about me they also have to report to the world that there's a man who wants me. My work, my accomplishments, my awards, I stand at the most powerful podium in the world, but a story about me ain't a story unless they report on the fact that I am the girlfriend of 'D.C. fixer Leo Bergen' like it validates me, gives me an identity, a definition. They can't fathom the concept that my life doesn't revolve around you. My life doesn't revolve anywhere near you. It's horrifying. 'Property of Leo Bergen.' Tell me, Leo, when they write about you do they report on your clothes? Do they write about your thighs? There is a difference. There is. So what happens to you happens to me, which is why I'm writing a letter of resignation. Are we done?

I am not a toy that you can play with when you're bored or lonely or horny. I am not the girl the guy gets at the end of the movie. I am not a fantasy. If you want me, earn me! Until then, we are done.
