The 39-year-old dished:

"There was a period before Scandal when I went into the wilderness. There was a lot of toxicity in my life, people I needed to let go of in a personal way, in a business way. And, also, I felt like I had been living my career kind of on auto-pilot. I took a break and did a Broadway play. I went back to my roots as an artist."

She's the original Olivia Pope!

We kid, we kid. But really, it sounds like Kerry only did what she had to do in order to feel herself again!

8 Celebs We'd Rather See Run For President Instead Of Donald Trump!

| Filed under: Matt DamonAngelina JolieEva LongoriaOprah WinfreyGeorge ClooneyTom HanksAlec BaldwinKerry Washington

no title

The year 2016 will go down as one of the craziest election cycles yet — hopefully ever — and it got us thinking…

If wacky wannabe politicians like Donald Trump can parlay their celebrity to political fame, why can't other celebs do the same?!

More to the point — what if a few major celebs who've already shown an interest in politics and social issues decided that they would want to run for president?!

It'd sure make a campaign cycle a lot more interesting…

And we can bet a few of our choices would actually have a really good chance of winning!!!

| Filed under: Oprah WinfreyFitnessGym TimeDietsHealthBodyGotta Have Faith

Hear all about Oprah's past and present weight-loss journeys!

We thought Oprah Winfrey just had Weight Watchers to thank for her current weight-loss journey, but it turns out the former talk show host is also crediting a guy! The Big Guy, to be exact.

During the Super Soul Sessions on Saturday, the powerful personality opened up about her past problems with other diet and exercise regimens.

The 62-year-old explained that she used to focus too much on trying to look skinny, rather than feel healthy, saying:

"I wanted to be thin. I wasted so much energy, energy and time wanting my thighs to be thin, for my arms not to flap. I had the success and the money but I was still wanting something different than I had."

The former journalist told the star-studded audience that she turned to food to deal with the stress of spending two decades hosting The Oprah Winfrey Show.

The gorgeous gal also admitted that she'd especially binge out on junk food while on vacation.

The lovely lady even confessed that she would constantly come up with excuses to skip working out, specifically once when she sprained her ankle in Maui, explaining:

Tracy Morgan has had one of the most inspiring stories in all of Hollywood after miraculously recovering from his near-fatal car accident back in 2014.

The comedian has made his fair share of public appearances now that he has healed, but he only just got into the deep details while speaking to Oprah Winfrey on Sunday!

Tracy stopped by SuperSoul Sunday on OWN over the weekend to talk about his eight-day coma, and ended up revealing he actually saw his father in heaven while he was unconscious!

Not only would that be enough to affect anyone, but he even said that his dad was his best friend, so seeing him 17 years after his death was a lot to deal with.

We simply have no words, but we're happy to see Tracy recuperating so strongly.
