Created by epic writer, producer, and show runner Shonda Rhimes, Scandal is one of the most popular shows on television right now. But true to its name, this TV hit is not without real-life drama among cast mates! Click through the gallery to see 10 times the Scandal cast needed some fixing!
Kerry Washington and Scott Foley may have been on-screen lovers, but according to Star Magazine, real life was quite a different story.
Their feud was allegedly so serious that Washington asked Rhimes to kill Foley's character off the show.
“Kerry is a very take-charge gal," a source told Star. "But Scott is a veteran actor with his own opinions, and many of them rubbed Kerry the wrong way. Scott knows that Kerry is tight with Shonda, so he sees the writing on the wall. He wouldn’t be surprised if he got killed off early this fall.”
It would not be the first time that Rhimes took action against an unruly Scandal cast member.
After a domestic incident with his wife, Columbus Short's character was promptly killed off the show.
He reportedly begged to be brought back, but there would be no redemption after he allegedly attacked his wife.
Recently, Short was arrested by bounty hunters at his own album release party.
Scandal burst on the scene, and earning a steadily growing following from viewers. Rhimes, the show creator, was already a seasoned veteran after her success with Greys Anatomy.
But despite her knack for connecting with viewers across cultures with Scandal, Greys, and How To Get Away With Murder, which she executive produced, Rhimes was criticized by New York Times television critic Alessandra Stanley who called her "trite" and an "angry black woman."
Rhimes hit back saying neither she, nor the white man who Wrote How To Get Away With Murder, were angry black women. In fact, Rhimes is so NOT angry, that she has shed shed almost 100lbs this year, and credits being happy for her success.
