Originally posted 11/04/2014 09:55AM

It's not quite a Gladiator, but being a college R.A. is pretty close.

Kerry Washington was a guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers Monday, and the Scandal star shared a tip from her days as a resident assistant in college. (Washington attended George Washington University in D.C.)

Tasked with dealing with a group of underage athletes drinking in their dorm, Washington said she remembered a tip from her aunt. "I have a bunch of cousins who are really tall, and I remembered their mothers would always do this … I said, 'Everybody, sit down!' because then I was the tallest one in the room."

Scandal Recap: Sex, Drugs and Lies in the White House

Originally posted 10/17/2014 10:15AM

On Thursday night's episode of Scandal, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) watched the apple of President Fitz's eye turn sour, all while Jake's secret plan to out her father floundered, taking him down with it.

It's the first daughter's turn at a little, er, a lot of mischief. She and some friends snuck out of school to a party where they danced, drank and took drugs. Basic teen misbehaving until she lands herself in a threesome with two unknown boys, one of whom ends up taping the tryst – including scenes of an I-don't-even-want-to-know sex act called "Eiffel Towering" – and sends her the clip as a kinky keepsake.
