Retta: It's Time to 'Hook a Sister Up' on Parks and Rec

Parks and Recreation's Retta Wants More Love for Her Character

Originally posted 02/27/2014 07:15PM

After bidding a bittersweet goodbye to Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe, Parks and Recreation returns Thursday with plenty of Pawnee action. Though Ann and Chris are gone, there's now room for other characters to take the spotlight – and we're hoping Retta's Donna Meagle gets more time to shine.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Retta revealed she's pushing for love. Donna has enjoyed a wild dating life, but Retta thinks it's time for a real relationship.

"I want there to be a romantic interest in her future, and I keep bringing it up to our executive producer," Retta says. "I've kind of put it in his brain, and I believe that he shall hook a sister up, as they say."

Watch an Exclusive Clip from Scandal's Midseason Premiere

Originally posted 02/26/2014 09:15AM

Pour yourself a big bottle of red wine, change into your comfiest silk pajamas and get ready for a phone call from the Oval Office – that's right, Scandal is back.


When we last left the ABC prime-time soap, Quinn was changing sides, the vice president had murdered her husband, and Olivia Pope was trying to process the knowledge that her mother was an international terrorist.

In this exclusive clip from Thursday night's midseason premiere, all those story lines take a back seat to the continuing plot thread of Fitz's re-election campaign. Mellie wants Olivia back on the team, and she's contrived a friendly photo op to get what she wants.

Mom-to-be Kerry Washington has found the perfect way to bond with her baby on the Scandal set.

"She spends a lot of time singing to it and talking to it to say we're just playing pretend and everything's going to be okay, so don't worry about it," Joe Morton, who plays Washington's father on the hit ABC series, told PEOPLE at the 2014 BET Honors (which airs Feb. 24 at 9 p.m. EST on BET) in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

"She's very excited about being a mom," he added. "She's sort of floating around having just been married and now having a baby and putting a family together. She's in pig heaven, as they say."

Justin Timberlake and Kerry Washington Are Birthday Twins, So Here's a JT Playlist for Olivia Pope

Originally posted 01/31/2014 02:15PM

In any class of more than 23 kids, there is a 50 percent chance two of them have the same birthday – and the same thing is true if those kids grow up to be famous Hollywood stars. Friday's birthday twins are two of 2014's most buzzed-about celebrities: Scandal emoter Kerry Washington (born on Jan. 31, 1977) and actor-turned-musician-turned-actor-turned-musician Justin Timberlake (born the same date, four years later).

Timberlake is Timberlake in everything he does, but for all intents and purposes, Washington is Olivia Pope right now. And since Olvia Pope has a lot of feelings, what better way to celebrate the occasion than by making her a JT playlist for all those late nights on the couch? Save the Motown for montages, Liv – it's handled!

Besides Monday Night Football, no show on TV is as good at giving us exactly what it says on the tin than Scandal. In two and a half seasons, the ABC drama has seen scores of extramarital affairs, at least five politically motivated killings and enough dirty tricks to put Dick Nixon to shame.
