Originally posted 11/20/2015 10:45AM

Like many, we've been waiting with baited breath to see which of Scandal High's selfie-savvy teens would take home victory in the student council elections.

In the final installment of Shonda Rhimes "very first" tv show – AKA Jimmy Kimmel's hilarious spoof – frontrunner Hunter Ulysses Whitman (Tony Goldwyn) faces a last minute rival.

While the Scandal parody's other candidates have all mysteriously been expelled, Goldwyn's Hunter remains untouched. Even with goodie-two-shoes Izzy (Portia de Rossi) now in competition, the jock still nabs victory with 359 votes to her zero.

Scandal Sneak Peek: Who Leaked the Footage Showing Fitz and Olivia's Affair?

Originally posted 10/01/2015 09:00AM

Can Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) fix her own Scandal?

Last week, she and President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) seemed to finally be making strides toward a healthy relationship – until footage of Olivia and the still-married leader of the free world's sexy PDA made its way to national TV.

In an exclusive sneak peek of Thursday's episode, Elizabeth North (Portia de Rossi) tells Fitz that the White House has ruled out an external security breach, meaning someone on the inside betrayed him. But Abby Whelan (Darby Stanchfield) warns the leak is "not the issue."

"I've got a room full of press getting rowdier by the minute. There's blood in the water," she says. "We're gonna need a game plan, we're gonna need a statement, we're gonna need … a bigger boat."

Ellen DeGeneres' Empowering Anniversary Tribute to Portia de Rossi

Originally posted 08/16/2015 08:50PM

While accepting the choice comedian award at Sunday's Teen Choice Awards, Ellen DeGeneres delivered an empowering speech to teens in the audience, which she wrapped up with a sweet dedication to wife Portia de Rossi on their seventh anniversary.

"It feels good to be chosen, but there was a time in my life where I was not chosen – I was the opposite of chosen because I was different," said DeGeneres, 57, about her struggle to come out in the public eye.

"And I think I want to make sure that everyone knows that what makes you different right now makes you stand out later in life," she continued, "so you should be proud of being different. You should be proud of who you are."

Scandal Recap: Lena Dunham Goes Fifty Shades of Grey ... and Someone Gets Murdered

Originally posted 03/19/2015 11:25PM

Lena Dunham's Scandal debut started out as a Fifty Shades of Grey situation that Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) needed to fix.

And just when it looked like her character might be getting a Sex and the City ending, Huck (Guillermo Díaz) gave her a fate more suited for Law and Order: SVU.

Thursday's episode was all about feminist issues: the line between owning your sexuality and being abused, the scrutiny a successful woman is subjected to versus a man. Though the Girls creator met a tragic end, our heroine rediscovered her erotic power with – surprise! – a man besides Jake (Scott Foley) or Fitz (Tony Goldwyn).

That's right, Gladiators: Liv is officially a dominant.
