Several weeks back a squad selfie hit the social media world like a bat out of you know where. Several starlets that we see on a weekly basis piqued the curiosity of the masses with a very cryptic vibe of the photo. Not one leading lady would come clean as to why so many Tinseltown powerhouses had been gathered together. All they offered up was that fans should just wait and see. If you missed the selfie or need a refresher keep scrolling and finger shall reward you with the visual that you seek. Nevertheless, the secret is out, The Hollywood Reporter is behind the squad assembly which included actresses Kerry Washington and Regina King!
For their May 27, 2016 issue, The Hollywood Reporter is showcasing their TV Drama Actress Roundtable. You know, the ladies that make us cry, gasp, tweet with vigor, call our girlfriends and throw popcorn as well as pillows at our television screens. Both Kerry Washington and Regina King discussed career within the pages of The Hollywood Reporter. American Crime star, Regina King mentioned,
“I’ve been working for quite some time, and I’ve been lucky enough and confident enough that I’ve been able to say: “I’m not signing any multi-year deals. We’ll take it season by season.”
Now that’s the voice of a very successful woman! Know your worth and never compromise. Kerry Washington fans have been reacting to Scandal not being apart of the drama series lineup due to her pregnancy with baby number two. Which leads some to think, is Scandal on the verge of coming to the end? Washington shed some light on the subject stating,
“I don’t know when Shonda wants to end the show, but she has said she sees the ending in her mind, she knows when it happens, and I would never want to push her beyond that.”
An end to Scandal? Let’s not even think about that! Nevertheless, it’s amazing to see so many women of color being casted in leading roles. The kind that a viewer can really seek their teeth into and enjoy.
