Kerry Washington Might Not Have Signed on To Scandal

44th NAACP Image Awards – Show

Kerry Washington is gracing the cover of the latest issue of EBONY magazine and her cover story reveals that had the president in her ABC show “Scandal” been Black, she would not have signed on the show. Why? According to Kerry, it would’ve given people the impression that Fitz and Liv’s affair reflected her relationship with President Obama.

She explained:

“I was a little concerned because [the character has] a scandalous relationship with the [occupant of the] White House. I thought, ‘If the president on the show is Black, I will not do the show.’ Because to me, it was too important a moment. I didn’t want to do anything that compromised my relationship with the [President] or that made it seem like I had an insider view on the Obama presidency. I thought that would be so disrespectful and so against all the work that I had done.”

So…I wouldn’t have thought that at all, would any of you?
