Kerry Washington is a pretty private person.
Last year, rumors began circulating that the Scandal star and Nnamdi Asomugha were on the verge of getting divorced.
However, the brunette beauty kept quiet when it came to the split speculation about her relationship with the former football player.

But now, the gorgeous gal is opening up about those allegations. On Sunday, she said social media is often to blame:
"I think it's a double-edged sword."
She explained that she doesn't dish details about her personal life online for the masses to see and overanalyze, but that often allows them to come to their own conclusions:
"I think — and this is something Reese Witherspoon has talked about a lot — it's a little different for me because I don't talk about my personal life. Social media has actually been great for [other celebrities'] relationships with the weeklies or the gossip sites because people say things and they say, 'That's not true! Just so you know, that's BS!' I say 'BS' because it's Sunday. So I'm thinking in some ways, it's been great because people are able to maintain their voice."
The acclaimed actress explained her choice to not to defend herself from tabloid headlines online, adding:
"If I don't talk about my personal life, it means I don't talk about my personal life. That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what's going on in my marriage, I don't refute them, because I don't talk about my personal life."
Now, we can't help but notice that she's STILL not denying the claims. However, the lovely lady did let something slip about her marriage with the NFL alum:
"My husband says that I'm funnier since I became a mom, and that luckily I was pregnant when I did SNL because I was really funny. I think something about being a mom has made me let go even more of ideas of perfectionism, like when you're pregnant you're just not in control of anything. Like every day you're like, 'What am I today?'"
Sure, it's not super juicy, but it is pretty telling. Does that sound like a story that would be shared by a woman about to get divorced?
We don't think so, either!
The 39-year-old did confess that it can be difficult keeping her private life away from the public, especially when it comes to her daughter Isabelle:
"It's like I have these itchy fingers where I want to just show my daughter because she's so cute and instead I like, send it to my shrink or send it to my mother. I'm like, 'Look at this picture! Look how cute, look at this picture!' Get it out of my phone into the world, but not on social. So I get the desire to do that, but I want her to make her own decisions in her time and I feel like she already has a lot to navigate in life being the daughter of an actor and a former football player that she has a lot going on, so she should be able to enter this world when it feels right for her and not make that decision for her. Who knows that the next generation of Snapchat will be when she's allowed to have a phone, you know? Who knows?"
Well, we love that Kerry is standing her ground and maintaining her privacy!
