Oh how the new show “Scandal” gives me life every Thursday and last nights episode was definitely one of my favs. I can’t believe the things Shonda Rhimes come up with….whew!! Kerry Washington who plays lead role “Olivia Pope” sat down with Ebony magazine and revealed she almost didn’t take the role:

“I was a little concerned because [the character has] a scandalous relationship with the [occupant of the] White House,” the actress said.

“I thought, ‘If the president on the show is Black, I will not do the show.’ Because to me, it was too important a moment. I didn’t want to do anything that compromised my relationship with the [president] or that made it seem like I had an insider view on the Obama presidency.

I thought that would be so disrespectful and so against all the work that I had done.”

Do you think the show would be just as SCANDALOUS if Fitz was black?? Would you still watch??

Peep the behind the scene shoot of Kerry Washington’s Ebony cover!
