Scandal Catch-Up 3/6/14- Season 3, Ep. 12- "We Do Not Touch the First Ladies" by Andrew Murphy

Welcome back gladiators! Due to technical difficulties, we were unable able to get the previous episode's quick-cap up, but fear not, we are up and running at full-steam. Get ready, because this is about to get complicated. If you missed last weeks episode of "Scandal" or need a quick catch-up, we have it right here!
So we have a reporter with an unnamed source claiming that Oxycontin abuse was going on at the governor's mansion when Fitz was in his first term. Olivia wants Jake (the new head of B-613) to help track down the source out of concern that it might be her father. During one of the usual flashbacks we see Andrew listening in on an argument between Fitz and Mellie. When he discovers her later she is passed out on the floor from taking a bunch of Oxycontin. After forcing her to vomit, he gets Mellie to confess that her father-in-law raped her and she doesn't know who the father of their son is.

Back in the present day, Hollis Doyle wants to choose the next secretary of energy through a donation to Sally Langston (the veep). When that fails he makes plans to attend a donor dinner for Fitz. Abby and Harrison meet with the Dr. who delivered the pills all those years ago and find out it was a woman that called him (Mellie). In other Harrison news, Adnan Salif blackmails him into donating to the reelection campaign by threatening to reveal secrets from his past. Due to a complicated setup, David gets kidnapped and calls Abby to confess his love only to have it turn out that she is one of his abductors.

In another flashback we learn how Andrew and Mellie developed feelings for each other back in California during the governor days. This is why in the present day White House Mellie kisses Andrew. To cap all of the craziness off, Adnan used the blackmail favor to get into the donor dinner where she lets Cyrus know that she has unlimited funds. And just when it couldn't get weirder, it turns out that Adnan is partnered with Olivia's mother Maya! If that all seemed very confusing, that's probably because it was. Come back after tomorrow's episode for another quick cap to keep up with the basics of being a gladiator.

*Scandal airs tonight, 3/13/14 on ABC at 10p.m.!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
