During the year, we’ve all spent countless hours in front of the TV, consuming the best shows that Hollywood has to offer. So what did we choose as the best television shows of 2013?
Let’s face it — after a long day, sometimes you just want to plop in front of the television and indulge in some mindless drivel. But given all of the options vying for a spot on your DVR, it’s easy to get sucked into the wormhole of a program that makes you feel just a little disgraced with yourself.
We have made no secret of our intense crush on Kerry Washington here at VH1, and you know we’re not alone. So why in Olivia Pope’s name would Lucky magazine feel the need to mess with her perfect face on the cover of the December/January issue? The too-small eyes, dimension-less teeth render and the weird angle of her head render her basically unrecognizable. But she’s certainly not the first celebrity to endure involuntary cosmetic surgery at the hands of overzealous editors and art directors.
The Internet went into a frenzy when it was announced that Khandi Alexander would be joining Scandal as Kerry Washington‘s mom. Alexander will first appear on the series in a flashback in this week’s episode (and hopefully more to come). Just what exactly happened to Maya Lewis in Iceland all those years ago? It’s Scandal, so we’ll never know for sure. But for those who are unfamiliar with the famed actress, she’s appeared on TV’s biggest shows over the past two decades. For those who aren’t yet familiar with her work, the gallery above should get you started!
Scandal’s Olivia Pope and President Grant are in the middle of one of the sexiest — and most flagrantly dead-wrong (hello, he’s still very married to Mellie!) — affairs in TV history. But they certainly didn’t invent the art of scandalous secret love. From Friday Night Lights’ Tim Riggins stealing Lila Garrity from his BFF; to Cersei and Jaime’s twincestuous, extra-marital boning on Game of Thrones; here are the 10 hottest affairs in TV history.

So “sources” and a “pal” are saying that Kerry Washington is four months pregnant with her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, whom she married in secret earlier this year. Some say it’s obvious she’s been hiding a bump for the past month, but in reality, all we’ve seen are a few outfits with less obvious waistlines than usual for the slender Scandal star. Now the question is, will there be an Olivia Pope pregnancy plot? Let’s discuss how the show would handle this…
Rose McGowan isn’t Charmed by talk of rebooting the bewitching series, Ben Affleck gets superstitious over the Boston Red Sox, and the cast of Pretty Little Liars talk about the worst Halloween treats.
Scandal star Kerry Washington might be a sartorial inspiration for her team of gladiators and TV fans everywhere, but the actress hasn’t always been so style savvy. Despite her appearances front row at countless fashion shows, Washington recently told Glamour that she had to study up on designers early on in her career, even asking a friend for the proper pronunciation of “Hermès” before a red carpet event. It might all sound scandalous now, but this kind of humble admission is just another reason why we love the down-to-earth star.
I know most of you Scandal fans out there are super Team Olitz, and I get it, I really do. But my Felicity-loving heart was rejoicing last night at the reappearance of
Noel Jake. Pretend I didn’t write that, though. Let’s get on with the one thing we can all celebrate about “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”: The burns.
Are we a little too Scandal-obsessed this week? Sorry, we can’t help it. But also, neither can anyone else. On the Daily Show Thursday night, Kerry Washington said it was astonishing how often real Washington insiders confessed how much they identified with the show’s story lines. And earlier this week, Jennifer Hudson starred in a Funny or Die spoof, “Scandalous,” sponsored by the White House (for the Affordable Health Care Act). When we sat down with Hudson, we asked whether she wanted an actual guest role on the ABC hit.
