Well 2013 seems to be Kerry Washington’s year. After all of the speculation, it was confirmed by Us Weekly that Kerry, star of the hit ABC TV Show “Scandal”, is pregnant with her first child.
Of course the internet is a buzz on this news. Questions like “Will the pregnancy be written in the storyline?” “Will the show be the same if Olivia Pope is pregnant?”
Well, I was reminded that this is nothing new. In fact, if we want to go Old School, Phylicia Rashad already did that when she was Clair Huxtable on America’s beloved TV Show “The Cosby Show”. Phylicia announced her pregnancy during Season 3 of “The Cosby Show”. Guess what? Kerry’s pregnancy was announced during Season 3 of “Scandal”. And Phylicia’s pregnancy was hidden on the show. Will Kerry’s? We will find out as the season unfolds.
Do you think the pregnancy should be written into the show or just keep it under wraps like Mrs. Huxtable? Leave a comment.
