On today’s Pop Confidential podcast Jamey Giddens, Luke Kerr, Jillian Bowe and Melodie Aikels have been struck with a severe case of Scandal fever. From Olivia and Fitz’s sizzlin’ relationship to the spurned First Lady, the PC gang discuses it all in this special Scandal Confidential episode.
Scandal isn’t the only hot show the DC crew dishes about on ABC. Miranda Bailey faced an investigation into the deaths of her patients on Grey's Anatomy. Jamey and Luke disagree on Cristina’s storyline.
The podcast then becomes Awkward as the gang discuss a surprising death on the MTV series. Brawls erupt in The Real Housewives of New Jersey trailer, but does that have anything on Mariah Carey andNicki Minaj’s feud on American Idol?
All this and much more on today’s Pop Confidential podcast!
The Weinstein Company has released a trailer for Lee Daniels’ highly-anticipated film, The Butler. The period piece centers on the real-life story of Eugene Allen, who served as the White House butler for eight presidents from 1952-1986. Forest Whitaker takes on the title role, with daytime talk show maven Oprah Winfrey as his wife.
This marks Winfrey’s first appearance on the silver screen since starring in Beloved 15 years ago. Watch the trailer after the jump!
Before this week’s Scandal recap, I have to comment on the episode’s title, “Molly, You in Danger, Girl.” If you’ve lived through the ‘90s, you know this is a reference to the movie Ghost, which starred President Fitz himself, Tony Goldwyn! The first and second time I read the title, I LOLed. Basically, I think it’s the best episode title ever, and I hope we get more cheeky Ghost references in Scandal!
This episode was a fantastic outing, and so much happened. There were enough reveals to last half a dozen eps, and “Molly, You in Danger, Girl” could have easily served as a season finale. It’s a good thing Scandal left us so much to ruminate over, since it’s on hiatus for another three weeks! READ MORE
