Randy, Red, Superfreak and Julia (Scandal Season 4 Premiere Recap)

Randy, Red, Superfreak and Julia (Scandal Season 4 Premiere Recap)

Last Thursday was the day we had all been waiting for. The Scandal premiere. ABC teased us with the pressing question, “Where is Olivia Pope?” only to answer it in the first 3 and a half seconds. A beach. She was on a beach. Quite frankly, I would have loved to see more of the ocean vacation. But I guess I am a sucker for alternate story lines running simultaneously. Anywhoo, so.

Keep Ya Hands To Yourself…All Of You. *Trigger Warning*

Keep Ya Hands To Yourself…All Of You. *Trigger Warning*

Hey y’all. Can we talk? Because…pressed. By now everyone knows that Ray Rice pulled a Floyd Mayweather on his then fiancé Janay and rendered her unconscious, then dragged her out of the elevator by her Brazilian Body Wave like an old sofa going to the curb. Then there was a piss poor excuse for a press conference where Janay was put in the SAME ROOM as her abuser and asked to tell what happened.…
