In case you missed it, Shonda Rhimes has become a pretty big deal in TV land.

Not only is she the emotionally reckless mastermind behind Grey’s Anatomy, she is also responsible for bringing Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder to our screens.

She is also the reason that one our favourite fictional ladies (possibly ever), Meredith Grey was spotted flinging red wine at some of Hollywood’s other leading ladies, including Kerry Washington, Scandal’s star.

Not to worry though, there isn’t another celebrity spat about to wreak havoc on social media. The TV stars were just doing a bit of promotional work.

To be honest, any Scandal fans out there know that Olivia would never be one to waste a good glass of red.

The cast of Shonda’s three series got together for one epic photoshoot. So epic in fact that it led to four different cover shots for Entertainment Weekly.

Sitting down over some wine and cheese with the show’s creator, stars Viola Davis, Ellen Pompeo and Kerry Washington had a frank discussion about Hollywood and McDreamy, of course.

Ellen pointed out that a lot of the reaction to the much loved characters death was something she recognised as quite sexist:

 “All of a sudden, ­Patrick [Dempsey] leaves, and it’s like, Oh my God, ­Meredith’s gonna get killed with Alzheimer’s! The show couldn’t possibly go on ­without the man!

Shonda is famous for keeping her storylines under lock and key and making all of her actors swear to secrecy to avoid spoilers breaking free.

However, there was one nugget of information for any Scandal fans out there as she revealed Cyrus (played by Jeff Perry), will be something of a “monster of the loose” in upcoming episodes.

“He had an arena to play in before, and now the monster is out, and that is a dangerous thing.” 



Louis Tomlinson has found himself at the centre of a scandal.

A Snapchat picture has emerged of the 23-year-old rolling a suspicious looking cigarette .

The boy band member was partying in London on Wednesday and ended up bringing five women back to his hotel with him and his friend at around 4am.

It looks like one of the people there couldn't contain their excitement and decided to take a sneaky picture of the 1D member, which was then posted on Snapchat.

The picture shows Louis in a baggy jumper, appearing to be looking at somebody, with a green substance in a container beside him and cigarette papers.


Oh dear.

Last year, Louis was caught up in a similar scandal with ex-1D member, Zayn Malik, while on tour in Peru.

Despite this, Louis was all smiles the next day while heading into a London studio dressed casually and looking happier than ever. After his night of partying with plenty of women, we can't say we're surprised.


Fans of actress Kerry Washington got a bit of a shock yesterday when InStyle magazine released their latest cover image.

Kerry posted a picture of the magazine's March cover on her Instagram feed, and followers were quick to comment on the fact that her skin appeared dramatically lighter than usual.

The Scandal actress shared the image with the caption, "I'm THRILLED to share with you all that I'm on the cover of this year's March @instylemagazine! Can't wait for you guys to see it and read it! So honored. And crazy excited."

Although she seemed delighted with the cover, commenters were less than happy with the changes to her skin tone. "I don't like this picture of you Kerry. It looks way too light I had to look twice," wrote one follower, with another saying, "I'm glad that you made the cover, but you should speak out about them lightening your skin. Not cool. Tired of the media doing this type of stuff."

InStyle yesterday issued an apology via their website. Although they have explained the reason for the lighter colouring, they have not admitted to intentionally lightening Kerry's skin in the cover image.

"While we did not digitally lighten Kerry's skin tone, our cover lighting has likely contributed to this concern," the magazine explained.

"We understand that this has resulted in disappointment and hurt. We are listening, and the feedback has been valuable. We are committed to ensuring that this experience has a positive influence on the ways in which we present all women going forward."

Kerry too seemed happy with InStyle's explanation, writing, "Beautiful statement. Thank u 4 opening this convo. Its an important 1 that needs to be had."

Definitely a faux-pas, but very well handled by both Kerry and InStyle.



Is there anyone who doesn’t LOVE Kaley Cuoco? After all, she’s everyone favourite girl across the hall!

After the initial shock (we assume) of seeing her personal photos had been hacked through the iCloud photo hacking scandal, Kaley responded in what may be the best way ever – sorry Anna Kendrick!

Posting a photo to her Instagram account, where her username is that of her beloved dog, Norman, of her and her husband walking down a beach seemingly butt naked, Kaley wrote: “What a fun day that was, frolicking with my hubs on the beaches of Mexico! Feel like we forgot something?”

The image shows the couple, who have been married since last January, with pixelated areas around their bodies, making it look as if they are naked – brilliant!

Well played, Kaley. You win this round – take that hacker!

Kaley wasn’t the only one who responded to the scandal in a humourous way, Kirsten Dunst took to Twitter yesterday to vent her frustrations through the use of the most powerful of emojis: the pizza and the poo. 


Which glamour model is cashing in on her husband's recent infidelity? This star, who is no stranger to the tabloids, is set to make a whopping five million from a book deal, or possibly even a movie contract! Watch the video above to get all the crazy details. Niamh Geaney reports.



It’s been quite a while since the infamous elevatorgate incident of the Met Gala involving Jay-Z and his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles.

Finally, Solange has taken some time to speak about the incident…kind of.

Talking to Lucky magazine, the singer called the scandal “that thing” and said that it is now behind them: “What’s important is that my family and I are all good. What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and I feel at peace with that.”

Hmm, we still want to know what happened and what would make her react in such a violent way – but it doesn’t look as if the truth will ever come out!



Oh no! It would seem that all is not well for the One Direction boys following the drugs scandal caused by Zayn and Louis yesterday.

After a video of the two boys smoking a joint emerged, it seems to have divided the band as well as the fans.

Last night, it has been reported that Niall, Harry and Liam arrived separately at a gig in Newcastle, with the two disgraced boys following behind.

Harry is said to be livid with Zayn and Louis, branding their behaviour, “reckless.”



Lady Gaga has been caught up in another photoshop scandal – and this time it’s worse!

Unretouched photos of the singer in a 2009 photo shoot for V Magazine  have emerged – and the difference is startling.

Gaga’s ribs in the unretouched photo look perfectly normal, but her stomach has been pulled in tight and her ribs made much more visible in the retouched image.

Why would they want her ribs to protrude if they do not do so naturally?

What a shame, we think she looks so beautiful in the unretouched photo.

Do you think they went to far with the photoshop in this image?

Is it just us or is James Franco doing a lot of silly things lately?

He has landed himself in trouble yet again when he branded a theatre critic a “little bitch” on his Instagram, which he has now deleted.

However, as James should know well already, this is the internet and nothing truly goes away forever.

Apparently New York Times theatre critic, Ben Brantley, had some not-so-nice things to say about James Franco’s current Broadway run of Of Mice and Men.

James wasn’t too impressed by Brantley review and told him he should be working at Gawker.com, eek!

Oh James, what are you doing to us? Put down the smartphone.




EastEnders bosses have called an urgent meeting with soap actor Ricky Norwood after he was reportedly caught smoking marijuana while performing a sex act in a Skype video.

The 28-year-old actor, who plays Fatboy in the BBC soap, is said to have filmed an eight-and-a-half minute video of himself smoking the drug while not wearing any clothes and with his face in full view.

He is now being called up by show bosses who want to talk to him to discuss the matter further.

An EastEnders spokesperson said, “We will be meeting with Ricky early next week to discuss this matter.”

Ricky is thought to have been speaking to a glamour girl on Skype, and reports say she filmed the conversation and is trying to sell it on to an X-rated celebrity video site.

Ricky joined EastEnders in 2010, winning the best newcomer National Television Award the following year.



Nate Bagley was a single man fed up of hearing all the love stories. From scandal and divorces, to fairytale romance, he just couldn’t handle it. So he decided to spend a year interviewing couples.

During his adventure, he was very surprised to find the key ingredients needed to maintain a healthy relationship:

The happiest couples loved their partners as much as they loved themselves. They were independently happy and knew how to take responsibility for their actions.

They stood by each other no matter what. If things got a bit rocky neither one would walk away from the relationship.

They trusted each other and didn’t feel the need to undermine one another. Since they’ve proven that they are each other biggest advocates, they were both emotionally secure.

The happiest couples tried to experience some sort of meaningful connection or create a fun memory on a daily basis.
