Recently, Wifey and I went on a double date with another black lesbian couple I deeply admire. One of them is an über-talented writer, artist and teacher, while the other is a nationally recognized food-justice consultant. After we’d been out of touch for a while, the theme of the night was about catching up and…
Let’s face it: Half the country has been in a funk since Nov. 9. Not only did Donald Trump become president, but he went about shoring up white supremacy as swiftly as possible.
Kimberly Hébert Gregory is having a strong 2017, appearing in five different shows on five major networks. Even though she’s having a breakout year, she’s been acting in TV and film for more than a decade and in plays for even longer.
The pop-cultural impact of Shonda Rhimes cannot be overstated, although at this point, it’s hard to imagine TV without her forceful, casually diverse, complicated and occasionally ruthless characters who fall outside of what was heretofore the “norm” (read: white, heterosexual male protagonists and their stories).
Shonda Rhimes, probably the most prolific TV producer in the history of ABC, is moving on and taking her ShondaLand productions to Netflix. But don’t fret—some of your favorite shows, like Grey’s Anatomy, will continue to air on ABC while Rhimes’ new slate of shows head to Netflix.
The two-part Scandal season finale finally answered the question, who was behind Frankie Vargas’ assassination and plotting to assassinate Mellie?
Peus and Sarah are still dead. All of the drones have been dismantled. Fitz and Olivia are back (in bed) together. Mellie Grant and Luna Vargas are preparing to take over the White House. Quinn Perkins is trying on wedding dresses and everything is good in Scandal land ...
Last week, Mellie Grant decided to put on her big-girl drawers and pick Frankie Vargas’ widow, Luna, as her vice president—Peus and Sarah be damned.
I’m so tired of Sarah and Peus and the stink they’re leaving all over this show that I’m going to spell “Payus” differently every time I type it. No respect intended. The good news is that this week’s Scandal episode appears to bring us one step closer to getting rid of these two clowns once and for all.
To commemorate Scandal’s 100th episode, ShondaLand treated us to an alternate timeline that answered the question, “What if Fitz never became president?”
If you recall, a couple of episodes ago, Huck was shot three times by his new lady friend, Meg, who turned out to be working for Sarah, the woman who for some yet-to-be discovered reason forced Papa Pope to kill President-elect Frankie Vargas. We’ve all been waiting to find out whether Huck was dead or alive ... and,…
Black superwoman, television dynamo and queen of Thursday nights on ABC Shonda Rhimes will add another title to her résumé as she joins the national board of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
We’re living in a DIY culture, and there’s no one more do-it-yourself than bloggers. Blogging is a means of communication, self-expression, culture, news and so much more. And the people who create blogs are typically ridiculously talented and effortlessly wear the responsibility of being a voice for their culture.
Abby, you in danger, girl! At the end of last week’s Scandal episode, we learned that Abby Whelan, President Fitzgerald Grant’s chief of staff, was involved in the shooting of Jennifer Fields and Huck. This week’s episode is dedicated to showing us exactly how Abby got caught up.
Last week, Jake the Snake dragged (no, literally dragged) Olivia Pope into the woods to show her that Jennifer Fields was still alive. This week, Olivia interrupts a sexy boxing sesh between Huck and his adorable new lady friend, Meg, and summons Huck to some truck stop where Jake left her.
Papa Pope did it. He killed President-elect Frankie Vargas. On election night. With a gun. Who knew? I mean, everyone knew that Papa Pope was involved in Vargas’ assassination. He’s always pulling the strings, but this episode shows us how Papa Pope came to pull the trigger this time.
Scandal has been on hiatus for a couple of weeks, so to refresh your memory, Frankie Vargas was shot and killed the night he won the presidential election. One of his campaign volunteers, Jennifer Fields, left a voicemail for the FBI saying that Cyrus Beene was responsible. Then someone blew up Jennifer’s cabin.…
The big mystery of the third season’s second half continues in episode 13 as everyone tries to figure out who killed Wes… Wait, I started the last episode recap the exact same way. So much for uncharted territory here. Well, Annalise is out of jail now, so that’s new.
Times are hard when you’re doing hard time. That’s what Cyrus Beene learned during this week’s episode of Scandal. Last week, Cyrus’ ex-lover Tom Larsen confessed to the feds that he assassinated President-elect Frankie Vargas at Cyrus’ request. This week, Attorney General David Rosen drops Cyrus off at the local…
The big mystery of the third season’s second half continues in episode 12 as everyone tries to figure out who killed Wes. We immediately see that (unsurprisingly) Frank was lying about being with Wes through the time of the fire. Wes actually ended up getting into a cab and calling a mysterious contact marked “In Case…
