| Filed under: TV NewsKerry WashingtonConnie BrittonScandal

Scandal would have been a different show!

We finally figured out the scandal of Scandal!

It turns out ABC actually wanted Connie Britton to have the role of Olivia Pope and NOT Kerry Washington!

Shonda Rhimes revealed the shocking tidbit while speaking to The Hollywood Reporter in honor of the show's 100th episode, saying:

"I didn't know that there hadn't been a drama series with a leading black woman for 37 years. When the show got picked up [to pilot], I got a phone call from somebody who said, ‘This would be the perfect show for Connie Britton.' I said, ‘It would be, except Olivia Pope is black.'"

Guess those ABC execs had seen those couple of episodes Connie starred on The West Wing

Anyway, as soon as Kerry came in for the role, it was clear she was the one for the job!!

YouTube Drama! An Adult Cam Girl With EXPLICIT DMs, A Distraught Wife, & A Couple Reunited — Get Caught Up On ShayCarl's Cheating Scandal HERE!

| Filed under: Love LineYouTubeFamilySexScandal

no title

This story is unbelievable — especially from the ORIGINAL vlogging YouTube family!

But it is A LOT. So just to catch you up on all the drama…

Back in February, VERY married web star Shay Carl Butler (AKA ShayCarl of Shaytards fame) was caught cheating on his wife Colette (with whom he has five children!) with adult cam girl Aria Nina.

The drama began when Nina went public with the affair on social media, tweeting (and subsequently deleting) direct messages from Shay. She even said she has very compromising videos of Butler stroking himself!

Aria may have deleted, but fans were quick to screenshot. See a sampling of the gloriously explicit NSFW alleged DMs (below):

HBO may have nixed one particular shot from Girls, but the female-driven show is still responsible for some of the most explicit sex scenes ever squirted onto the small screen.

But so are Game Of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, and even ABC's Scandal!

Which goes the furthest without crossing the line? You tell us!

Shonda Rhimes Could Have SIX Shows On The Air Next Season! Get The Deets On The Latest Pilot She Sold To ABC!

| Filed under: TV NewsHow To Get Away With MurderScandal

no title

There's not enough wine in the world…

Shonda Rhimes is already a household name herself despite only working behind-the-scenes, as her shows are some of the most popular on television. But her star is about to get even brighter…

That's because it was reported on Tuesday that ShondaLand just sold ANOTHER pilot to ABC — meaning the woman behind Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, The Catch, and Still Star-Crossed could potentially have SIX shows on TV next season!

Related: Shonda & McSteamy Get Into The Most Random Twitter Feud…

Judging by the network pitch, the currently untitled law project from producer Betsy Beers and writer Paul William Davies will fit nicely with the rest of its TGIT sisters:

"Set in the Southern District of New York Federal Court, aka 'The Mother Court,' this legal drama follows brand new lawyers working on opposite sides — for both the defense and the prosecution as they handle the most high profile and high stakes cases in the country, all as their personal lives intersect."

So… it's totally gonna be called Mothers-in-Law, right??

As long as this one is different enough from HTGAWM than Private Practice was from Grey's, we'll definitely be tuning in. Although, it must really suck being the long-forgotten cast of Off The Map – aka the only Shonda show to EVER fail…

Do U think you're ready for Shonda Rhimes' sixth series??
