Scandal star Kerry Washington was looking radiant on the set of the hit ABC series yesterday (December 09, 2013), as she was seen shooting scenes with co-star Bellamy Young is Los Angeles, CA. Washington sported her character Olivia Pope’s signature color, white.
While I’m thrilled for Kerry that she’s pregnant, I’m super bummed that this is the reason why season three’s season is being cut to 18 shows.
The network announced on Friday that it will broadcast 18 instead of 22 episodes. But the decision follows word that Washington and her new husband, football player Nnamdi Asomugha, are expecting a baby.
As Kerry’s baby bump grows it will become harder to conceal the obvious. ABC has chosen not to incorporate the pregnancy into Olivia’s storyline.
After this Thursday’s episode airs (I seriously cannot wait), Scandal will take a break and then return in late February with the final episodes of season three.
