During the BET Awards Grey’s Anatomy actor Jessie Williams accepted the Humanitarian Award. While doing so he rocked the world with his powerful speech on Police Brutality. He used words like “Whiteness” while the camera panned to his interracial parents. Many were moved after the speech , but some are calling foul. Grey’s Anatomy fan Erin Smith started a petition to have Jessie Williams fired. Smith believes that Jessie speech was a slap in the face to Caucasians and police. She thinks Jessie is dividing is, instead of bring everyone together. Well creator of Grey’s Anatomy Shonda Rhimes does not agree. Check out her tweet.
Now Erin Smith have several seats.
Word on the street is that the Queen of ABC Shonda Rhimes just might have another show up her sleeves. Her obsession with the secret society B613 may turn into a TV show.
During an interview with the Hollywood Reporter Shonda told her interviewer “I have like three versions of a B613 spinoff in my head that I obsess about constantly”
B613 plays a major role in Scandal. Everything clearly revolves around this organization. What will this show be like? Would Papa Pope be the lead actor? If so will he have a love interest that’s just as crazy as he is? How many more lives will B613 take? OMG I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS! THIS CAN’T BE GOOD FOR MY HEALTH.
If this actually happens I don’t think I can take it. I am still recovering from Shonda’s TGIT.
Hey guys Shonda Rhimes and her phenomenal team has created a role for Cicely Tyson to join the hit drama series How To Get Away With Murder. Of course the details are being kept under lock and key, but I am going to assume Cicely will play Viola Davis character Annalise Keatings mom. I hope I’m wrong because Shonda never does anything predictable.
So Scandal premiered on Thursday and I must say DAMN!!!!!
While Liv was on a secluded island with Jake, she gets a letter delivered with her groceries. No one knows where I am she says. Don’t open it says Jake. If you open it, you will find trouble. Liv opens the letter anyway and its a newspaper clipping about Harrison. Harrison is was found dead in a desert. So Liv and Jake leave there get away and head back to D.C.
Let me take you back for a moment. One the season 3 finale of Scandal, Harrison confronts Papa Pope and we were all left to believe that he was probably going to die. Take a look…………
After an ending like that I’m pretty sure no one was surprised that Harrison died. I guess this is better than Columbus Short‘s character being replaced by another talented, handsome, African American actor. The funeral was sad as all funerals are, but not seeing an actual body leaves me to believe that Harrison may not be dead. Well it at least leaves a slight chance for him to come back into our lives.
Although the unfortunate passing of Harrison reunites the GLADIATORS, it’s still kind of bitter sweet. Liv says Harrison had no one, we were his people, we were his family. I an so going to miss Harrison. Although Columbus is not in the best graces of Shonda Rhimes right now. Shonda has been known to forgive and forget her cast members mistakes and give them another chance. Remember Dr. Burke aka Isaiah Washington was suddenly fired for saying some not so nice things to his gay colleague. Years later Shonda revived Dr. Burke so he could send Dr. Yang off with a bang. Ok back to Harrison. You are and always will be our GLADIATOR.
The queen of prime time television Shonda Rhimes has made many great contributions to the wonderful world of television. Her new venture to take over Thursday nights on ABC is only 3 days away from happening.
Last night Scandal‘s Kerry Washington, Grey’s Anatomy‘s Ellen Pompeo and How to Get Away With Murder’s Viola Davis worked the crowd at the TGIT premiere event. The leading ladies were joined by their cast members and friends.
Get your DVR’s ready Shondaland is taking over Thursday nights.
It was tough for me, says Kerry Washington. While explaining working and being pregnant with a The Hollywood Reporter.
T0 carry a child for 9 months is enough work. Then you have to still be the great Olivia Pope as well. Sheesh! Being pregnant was wonderful for her, but not great for her character Olivia. She faced many challenges during last seasons taping of Scandal.
Needless to say Kerry looks amazing after giving birth to her daughter Isabella in April. Check her out on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
On the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy, a young doctor joined the team. She was talking to Dr. Webber and told him that she was adopted and her mom was Ellis Grey. WHOA!!! What an ending? This starts a whole new story line involving Dr. Webber and Dr. Grey’s love affair. I don’t know if Meredith can handle another sister. As you know Meredith’s sister Lexie Grey died in a plane crash. Then her best friend Dr. Yang, who was like a sister to her left to go work somewhere else. Now this new sibling could possibly be the love child of Ellis (Mereith’s mom) and Dr. Webber. Shonda this is too much drama for me girl.
Eliis Grey is played by the oh so fabulous Kate Burton. Kate also plays vice president Sally Langston on Scandal. As expected Kate will revive her role as Ellis Grey, because she surely has some explaining to do.
The Shondaland Thursday takeover will be here soon. I will be watching.
