Kerry Washington Pregnancy Won’t Be Written Into ‘Scandal’


Kerry Washington has scored herself a well-deserved Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Best Female Actor in a Drama for hit ABC show Scandal.

The actress keeps us coming back for more unexpected drama and suspense as Olivia Pope in the Shonda Rhimes created show, which she’s continuing to shoot despite beginning to sport a baby bump with the pregnancy of her first child.

Last week, producers announced this season would be cut back from 22 episodes to 18 to accommodate her pregnancy, which they chose not to write into the show.

Considering Olivia is one of the best dressed characters on TV, we’re sure they’ll figure out a way to stylishly cover her up.

As for her SAG nomination, the actress gushed: “I am truly grateful and proud to be a member of SAG/AFTRA and to be acknowledged by my peers in this way is an enormous honor.”

Well deserved, Kerry! Well deserved.
