Kerry Washington on Bump Watch?


Kerry Washington didn't win the Emmy Award for Best Lead Actress in a Drama series for her role in Scandal but she did manage to get everyone talking...

Whispers from the red carpet at the Emmy Awards yesterday is that the newlywed actress is pregnant with her first child.

No official word from Kerry but this is the same woman who didn't announce her marriage to San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha until nearly a month after tying the knot [click here if you missed that].

Kerry Washington you are officially on bump watch.

Why should the general public care about a celebrity's pregnancy? Society is so pressed.

Kerry deserved that Emmy with as much buzz and press that Scandal has garnered recently. And the show really is good - good writing, cast, edge of your seat drama. It was an underdog show in the beginning and now it's one of the hottest shows on ABC. Kerry was robbed. With that said, I didn't watch The Emmys, so who won it over her?

Claire Danes won over Kerry

The only reason Black females like Scandal is because Kerry's character is wanted by a White man. Surely these sentiments would be different if let's say Idris Elba was playing the Pres and Kate Hudson was playing Kerry's character.

Double standards. Black women and White men are okay, but Black men and White women aren't.

Stop race baiting. Yes, the dynamics of the show's characters have a lot to do with why it's so popular. We have never seen an educated and gorgeous black woman be pursued by a white male in power on tv in this generation. It is a concept that is edgy, sexy and still very taboo even in today's society when we have a Barack Obama in office as President. So, forgive me and other black women who are fascinated by this dynamic and the fact that Kerry's character is a strong and powerful business woman who rubs elbows with international politicians and wealthy executives. I don't know what you watch on tv, but to me, that's some good sh*t. And for the record, white women go crazy over this show as well. Scandal could not have gotten as big as it has on solely on the strength of black female support.

She didn't deserve that Emmy. That role was originally for Gabby Union.

The show has nothing to do with the color of Kerry and the Prez - it's hands down excellent writing!

I loved the show from day 1. It was the storylines that I find fascinating. My favorite character on the show is the Pres. Wife and her storylines. If anyone should have won an Emmy in my opinion is her and of course Shonda Rhimes for her story writing. And congrats to Shonda Rhimes on the adoption of her 3rd baby daughter.

It's so funny how Black women rant and rave about infidelity, but LOVE a show about one of the main characters pursuing a romance with a woman other than his wife. Pure comedy. Oh but wait, it's "only TV". LMAO, ok.

If KW is pregnant, congratulations! The Emmys, Oscars, Grammys, etc. . . garbage. The award goes to which ever camp paid the most or can return the most favors. Scandal is great! Keep up the good writing, Shonda Rhimes and all the extra acting of the cast. I LOVE the show!!! I think that's better than an Emmy. lol

@10:36 stop switching the "train of thought". Gabby is Mary Jane and Kerry is The Olivia Pope..
Scandal was robbed last night and yes it's audience is composed of a diverse demographic. i dont think race is the issue. I think it's the pompous, pretentious powers that be in Hollywood. That use these award shows in an attempt to dicate/promote for the highest bidder. #hollitics

Sorry to disappoint you but Scandal is the most watched TV show on ABC and most of the TV viewers are young White women. Riddle me this is, if White women ain’t pressed over an interracial relationship why are you? It is also ignorant for you to assume that the Black women that watch to show are all lusting over the White men. A lot of Black women that love the show are not even remotely attracted or interested in being with a White male. Most of them are lusting over Columbus Short who is also very good on the show. A lot of the Black women I know tune in to see him. For those who claim to hate and not watch to show there is a very good, hot and sexy Black male on the show. He’s Columbus Short. If you are not cerebral enough to follow the storylines he’s good to watch. Check him out if you dare.

CNS, I wouldn't care if aliens watched Scandal; like I said, a lot of Black women are pressed over the show because of the White president and his interest in the Black professional woman.

No. That role was not written "for Gabby". She read for the role and was promptly dismissed. Every role Gabby plays is the same...including Bring It On. Ugh.

someone pointed out the hyprocrisy of black women who watch this overrated show. just because YOU like kerry and this show doesnt mean it or she deserved an wmmy. black people think anything black should be held up high just because a lot of black people like it. maybe she wasn't the best lead actress. and yes i believe black women like this show because she is being pursued by a white man, and i do agree with what the other poster said about black women complaining about infedilty but relishing it in this show's storyline. whatever.

Of course white american would not let a beautiful black woman having an affair win an award, if she was white she would have.

11:46, Co-sign. We, as Black people, always have to participate in groupthink and that shit is insanely irritating. I've NEVER watched Scandal and don't plan on it because the story line is tired and has been done before over and over again. Trust, if Kerry where White, and the actor who plays the president were Black, this show would have been boycotted and petitioned mainly by Black women. I think that a lot of Black women want to be seen and heard by other races of men and this show gives them the platform to do so. It's almost like they're thinking, "Hey! Look at us! A White president on TV is pursuing one of us, so that means we all have the potential to be with a successful non-Black man!" Remember that Cheerios commercial with the little mixed girl with the White mom and Black dad? Child, Black women were online being so ignorant and biased about that commercial, but I bet that if the little girl's mom were Black and her dad were White, they wouldn't have said a thing about it. These double standard inconsistencies among many Black women is why I don't take them seriously. Many of them are lost and will never be found.

Lastly, yes, Black women are the main ones against infidelity and shit, and are the main ones wishing "karma" on Alicia Keys, Gabrielle Union, and Fantasia, but are supporting a show in which a married man is pursuing a single woman. So what is Scandal is just a TV show; the dynamics of a married man pursuing a single woman is REAL.

@11:43, I will disagree with regarding your opinion about Black women being pressed over the show. I have a few Black women friends that are from the Deep South that would never give a White man the time of day and they are the ones that turned me on to the show. But my question was never answered.

If White women ain’t pressed over an interracial relationship why are you?

Anonymous said...

@CNS, White women aren't "pressed" because White women have the world at their fingertips. They don't give a fuck about a White President banging a Black woman on TV. You know why? Because White women will ALWAYS have access to a White president, a White stock holder, a White CEO, etc. Black women, on the flip side, ARE pressed because they are being validated through the dynamics over this show. When are White presidents ever checking for Black women? When are White presidents ever parading around with a Black woman out in the open? ONLY ON TELEVISION.

And I don't care about your Southern friends.

Oh my! ya'll crazy with some of this stuff that is posted on here.
well here I come with my take: 'The last thing I remember was Olivia Pope getting a the car and saying, "Dad?"
Well shut my mouth, I can't wait for Scandal to come back on.
And yes, it good to see a sister play a strong role and the white-man thing doesn't bother me a bit...about time!
It's TV ya'll!! use your remote control and flip.
but hey, Idris would be a treat to watch and I do love Mr Short.
Just enjoy life doing what you like...I like me some Scandal.
SCANDAL!!! good to see black actors working. Rarely do you flip a channel and see us. Hey Angela Bassett about to play on a series based in New Orleans....demonic.
I guess black folks have to work....well ppl will talk about that too, especially black folks. Checking it out maybe one time to see how demonic it is....if so, let it go! lol

@1215 you made a point! but it's not that serious to go there with us black women. We are fully aware of who we are and the men that may or may not want us or be with us in public. But then again there are some white men that love to be seen with us as well as our own men. Most women as yourself just want one good man. a man from any race can be down right dirty. Half of us really don't give a damn! really. CEO or some rich Stockholder or Black man...can be a good ass beater. We see the world and black women are not blind to the fact. We just hold our heads up and move on. I'm a southern girl!! I don't give a fuck! happy you have multi choice. I still love SCANDAL.

LOL!!! where is your brain? I don't watch that mess! Really,
that show isn't my style. So don't put southern sisters in the mix.
I see you been watching that show to form an opinion and narrow us down to a Reality Show.....stop! lol
Women from any region can be pushovers just read or watch
any of these sick shows they have on TV. To know how a child can be misled by some of this mess and these schools or not safe for our children. Hell, no where is safe. You on here down playing southern women like it's really going to make this a better world to survive in. let that be your PEACE!!

cns said...

@12:15, I wasn’t asking for validation of my friends I was just stated that fact that I know women who would never give White man the time of day like watching the show. The mostly enjoy watching Columbus Short who is super smart, aggressive and sexy.

It’s just convenient of you to ignore my original question which is why are you so pressed over a fictional TV character in an interracial relationship? I asked why you were so pressed, not why White women were not. I already know the answer to that. Were you this mad when Blair Underwood played Miranda’s love interest in Sex in the City? What about when he plays the love interest of Christine in Old Christine? I hear his love interest in Ironside is a white woman, are you going to boycott that TV show as well?

What this thread needs is Tippie Toes talking to herself and giving advice to her sockpuppet that lives in Manhattan, LOL!

Wow my aunt is from the south and I lived in the A for a while. I even did an intern there and must agree with the individual who said southern women are pushovers. Its kind of hard to explain but I notice the women fall for anything, they have millions of babies while their men run the streets, they are ok with a little bit and a lot of them did not understand my independence because their top priority is cooking, cleaning and pleasing the peen.

Concerning Kerry and the Emmy, in no way did she deserve the award over Claire Danes. I'm wondering how many of you have actually seen both shows/performances. Garnering an award shouldn't be based on how popular or how much buzz surrounds the show and I'm glad the Emmys got this particular category correct.
I'm far from a Danes fan but one thing can't be denied that she is a great actress versus Washington who is good and if kept on the right path can be great. Hopefully Kerry will have her time but last night wasn't it and rightfully so.
Also, Scandal and its performances are highly overrated!

Co-sign @12:15. The hypocrisy of black women is astounding. But you'll never get through talking to random chickenheads on a blog because the refuse to open their minds and think logically.

And it's funny how black women blame black men and their poor leadership when for the past THIRTY YEARS black WOMEN have been ruling over black HOUSEHOLDS that rear these so-called black men. The reason why most black men ain't shit is because his sorry ass mother did not find him a quality MAN to raise him.

Anonymous said...

@5:39, No if Black men choose to raise their “OWN” children the sorry Black mothers would not have to find a quality man to help them raise their kids. Black children are at a disadvantage because both the mother and the FATHER are sorry excuses for human beings. BOTH parents are at fault when a child does not grow up to be a decent human being. You male male-identified Black women need to stop cheerleading for these trifling Black fathers and start making them own up to their responsibilities.
