This woman is a class act!
Kerry Washington's Scandal co-star Columbus Short has been involved in lots of legal drama over the past year, so the question came up during PaleyFest on Sunday.

The 38-year-old actress addressed how the cast dealt with their "real-life scandal," saying:
"The one thing that I would say, just so that it's clear: Everyone who's in this family is in this family whether you're in this show or not. I don't celebrate the laughter at that question. I understand the question, and thank you for giving us so many viewers and thank you for understanding why we're not going to answer that."
That's a perfect way to shut down the topic! Brava, Kerry!
Looks like she really has learned a thing or two from being Olivia Pope!
