KERRY WASHINGTON PREVIEWS 'SCANDAL'-INSPIRED CLOTHING COLLECTION


Fans of ABC's Scandal may not have the same powerful connections as Olivia Pope but now they'll have the chance to at least dress like they do. Kerry Washington has teamed up with the show's costume designer, Lyn Paolo, for the Scandal collection being sold at The Limited.

Kerry spoke about the project with People saying, "I truly admire Lyn and love collaborating with her to create Olivia Pope's looks each week. Being able to work with her on a project that brings Olivia's style and confidence to Gladiators everywhere was something I couldn't turn down." She continued, "The hardest part was how busy Lyn, Elliot and I are. Our schedules, combined with our geography, made for an exciting collaborative process. With the help of technology and overnight deliveries, we were able to make it happen!"

  • Lyn added, "Our inspiration came from the fans, our amazing Gladiators, who were asking for a way to look like the character. I know I will run over to whomever I see in the collection and say hi...and also thank them for supporting us! We are all so excited and hope that the line will allow our Gladiators to enjoy yet another aspect of the amazing show that Shonda Rhimes has created."
  • The clothes will go on sale online and in stores on September 23rd.

W. KAMAU BELL WANTS MORE DIVERSITY IN LATE NIGHT


The recent reshuffling of late-night TV hosts left many people unhappy with the lack of diversity brought in to fill the available show slots. Comedian W. Kamau Bell has written a new essay for BuzzFeed entitled "The Unbearable Whiteness of Late Night" where he explains why it is such an issue.

Bell argues, "Every time a late-night job becomes available, people on social media and websites like this one get to play Fantasy TV Exec! And we toss around overqualified, non-white guy candidates like Aisha Tyler, Maya Rudolph, Wayne Brady, Tina Fey, Margaret Cho, Ellen DeGeneres and Chris Rock. Occasionally, I even get thrown into the mix. And for a little while, it is exciting to think of the possibility of these shows...until we actually hear the announcement. Don't get me wrong. I'm super excited to see what Stephen Colbert does with The Late Show. He's unquestionably a comedy genius. But you can't tell me that Wayne Brady wouldn't do as good a job as Jimmy Fallon." He adds, "Late-night TV is big business and wants the biggest audience possible. And the people who run it believe they have evidence the biggest audience comes with a white guy. And it will probably remain that way...at least until 2042."

  • The comedian hosted his own show on FXX called Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell which lasted a little over a year.

MINDY KALING EXPLAINS PREVIOUS COMMENTS ABOUT ABORTION PLOT ON 'THE MINDY PROJECT': Mindy Kaling sat down for an interview with HuffPost Live recently to clarify her previous statement about including an abortion storyline on her sitcom.

What I should've said was my sitcom...Many incredible shows have dealt with in it in a way that I really admire. Roseanne is one of them...I should've said for now...Abortion doesn't strike me, and I don't think this is controversial, as the funniest of areas and I run a comedy show. And also, my show...is about a workplace. Our show from the get-go hasn't made its centerpiece to focus on political issues."

JOHN TRAVOLTA RESPONDS TO GAY RUMORS


John Travolta is finally breaking his silence on the gay rumors that have been following him for years and the tell-all book that an alleged ex-lover has threatened to write about their time together. The Grease star spoke with The Daily Beast about all of the gossip and the one time media speculation did bother him.

John explained, "This is every celebrity's Achilles heel. It’s just about people wanting money. That's all. It happens on many levels. Also, I don't care that much about those types of allegations. Other people may attack it back more than I do, but I let all the media stuff go a long time ago because I can't control it. I think that's why it persists, to some degree."

  • The 60-year-old actor does admit that one rumor that he had an affair with his deceased son's male nanny did get under his skin. He told the website, "I found it most offensive with the loss of my son. I felt like that was the lowest I'd ever felt. Sex stuff is always going to be interesting to somebody, but you stay away from family. You really should. With that, I always felt like the media -- not all of the media, but parts of it -- went too low there."

HOLLYWOOD QUICK HITS


ADRIAN PETERSON ISSUES STATEMENT: After being charged with child endangerment and deactivated for one game by the Minnesota Vikings, Adrian Peterson has issued a statement. He said, "My attorney has asked me not to discuss the facts of my pending case. I hope you can respect that request and help me honor it. I very much want the public to hear from me but I understand that it is not appropriate to talk about the facts in detail at this time. Nevertheless, I want everyone to understand how sorry I feel about the hurt I have brought to my child . . . I never wanted to be a distraction to the Vikings organization, the Minnesota community or to my teammates. I never imagined being in a position where the world is judging my parenting skills or calling me a child abuser because of the discipline I administered to my son . . . I voluntarily appeared before the grand jury several weeks ago to answer any and all questions they had. Before my grand jury appearance, I was interviewed by two different police agencies without an attorney. In each of these interviews I have said the same thing, and that is that I never ever intended to harm my son. I will say the same thing once I have my day in court . . . I have to live with the fact that when I disciplined my son the way I was disciplined as a child, I caused an injury that I never intended or thought would happen. I know that many people disagree with the way I disciplined my child. I also understand after meeting with a psychologist that there are other alternative ways of disciplining a child that may be more appropriate . . . I have learned a lot and have had to reevaluate how I discipline my son going forward. But deep in my heart I have always believed I could have been one of those kids that was lost in the streets without the discipline instilled in me by my parents and other relatives. I have always believed that the way my parents disciplined me has a great deal to do with the success I have enjoyed as a man. I love my son and I will continue to become a better parent and learn from any mistakes I ever make . . . I am not a perfect son. I am not a perfect husband. I am not a perfect parent, but I am, without a doubt, not a child abuser. I am someone that disciplined his child and did not intend to cause him any injury. No one can understand the hurt that I feel for my son and for the harm I caused him. My goal is always to teach my son right from wrong and that’s what I tried to do that day . . . I accept the fact that people feel very strongly about this issue and what they think about my conduct. Regardless of what others think, however, I love my son very much and I will continue to try to become a better father and person."
