It’s Thursday, and you know what that means? If you missed last week’s season finale of ABC’s hit show SCANDAL and can’t wait to get your fix until next season, I’ve got you covered!

Last week, beauty lovers, bloggers and more joined together to talk everything scandalous about beauty at the #PrettyGlamazonScandal party hosted by Lara of PrettyConnected and Makeda of GlamazonDiaries.

Let’s face it, Olivia Pope has a power walk, and the girl’s hair needs to be just as powerful.

“I try not to put too much product in her hair, because I love for her hair to move, I like for her hair to bounce, be free and look shiny. I put in Shell Sebastian Cellophane, a conditioning clear coloring that seals it in, protects it from heat, and gives amazing shine.”– Linda Villalobos SCANDAL lead stylist

During the event, Caravan Studio’s hair stylist Valerie Star was on hand to create the famous Olivia Pope flip as well as hair styles seen on Scandal characters, Abby, Mellie and Quinn using the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium Marcel Curling Iron.

SCANDAL BEAUTY PRODUCT:  For men and women, the Skyn Iceland Eye Gels are so popular, let’s just say we’ve heard that the guys on the show love them so much they can’t live without them.  That’s SCANDAL-inspired beauty that you can’t deny.

Scandal, Breaking Bad, The Blacklist – TV and Twitter Converge

October 9th, 2013 by Nicole

The founders of Twitter could not have predicted this.  Twitter and TV?  But Twitter’s goal is clear now – if you enjoy watching good TV, take to Twitter and talk about – engage.

Scandal ranked #1 on the new Nielsen Twitter TV ratings for its season premiere last week.  The popular drama clocked in 713,000 tweets reaching a Twitter audience of 3.7 million.

Inline image 2

Breaking Bad’s season finale generated a record 1.24 million tweets. The conversation peaked at 22,373 tweets per minute.

Twitter’s history has been known for breaking news like the Arab Spring, US Airways Flight 1549 landing on the Hudson River, to Lady Gaga’s meat dress at the VMAs and now TV conversation.

Fred Graves, the head of Twitter TV said, “When viewers watch TV–their smartphone or tablet at their side–using Twitter to chat with their virtual friends about a program, it creates “the world’s biggest couch,” he says. And who better to have gossiping on the sofa with you than the star of the show?”  I know you agree.  I sure do.  So if it’s Scandal, Breaking Bad, Games of Thrones, or Homeland, I look forward to reading the Tweets and engaging my Twitter friends in real time.

Nevertheless, Twitter has a few hills to climb – getting celebs to join Twitter and also Tweet about their TV dramas, which is the case with James Spader, the star of the highly rated The Blacklist.  Spader is not on Twitter but the company is trying to get him on.

“The actor is returning to television this fall as a creepy criminal mastermind in a highly anticipated show called The Blacklist, Graver wants Spader on Twitter posting behind-the-scenes photos from the set, live-tweeting episodes, conversing with fans–and hell, maybe even tweeting creepy criminal-mastermindy things. That would be just fine.”  (Fred Graver, Twitter’s head of TV)

And so as Nicole Laporte put it, “Today, Twitter and TV may be synonymous–a show is no longer a show without a requisite hashtag.”

SCANDAL:  Kerry Washington’s As Olivia Pope Returns Early on BET


If you’re anything like me, you’ve been sulking all summer long for lack of earth-shattering programming on television.  Just yesterday, I had a Scandal itch that just couldn’t be scratched and the fact that I had to wait until Fall programming began had me feeling as hopeless.  Lucky for me and self-proclaimed Gladiators alike – BET has officially gained rights to air ABC’s hit drama Scandal and repeat episodes of the first two seasons will start playing on the network this summer.

Once season three of the political series begins this fall, the network will also air new episodes eight days after they premiere on ABC. If Scandalcontinues to run beyond season three, BET will have permission to show those episodes as well.


“We’re thrilled to be joining forces with ABC in airing this dynamic series,” BET chairman Debra Lee told Hollywood Reporter. “Scandal is a cultural phenomenon that has resonated with viewers for the past two seasons and we’re excited to be part of it’s continued journey.”

BET will kick things off with a Scandalmarathon this August.

Oprah’s Next Chapter With Kerry Washington & Shonda Rhimes

December 10th, 2012 by Lifestyle Staff

Kerry Washington, exquisite as Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal, has brought fierceness and fashion back to prime time. “Washington made history as the first African American woman to play the lead in a prime time drama in 38 years. Her character has been criticized by some, but many laud Pope’s sense of independence, poise, professional success and even her vulnerability.” Find out you too can exert these same characteristics as prime time’s favorite Olivia Pope through your fashion and home decor.

Over the past four decades, cable has seen Jada Pinkett Smith as HawthoRNe (TNT) and Jill Scott on The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency (HBO), but not since Diahann Carroll as Julia, a widowed nurse and single mother, has there been a well known leading Black actress on network TV. The onscreen power and success of both Pinkett-Smith and Scott, two bold, outspoken and extremely talented actresses paved the way for another prime time series featuring a leading Black actress. Each show brought in 3-4 million viewers on average, clearly there was an audience waiting to be tapped into.


Speed to Oprah’s Next Chapter aired on Sunday, December 9, 2012: Enter Shonda Rhimes, network TV’s most successful African-American writer and producer with Washington and Judy Smith, DC’s infamous political fixer for inspiration. Three of the most powerful women in television. Each with an individual, yet similar look of power, professionalism, and femininity.

Millions tune in weekly to follow the intense pace, political chess games, tormented love triangle, and to peep Pope’s style. Operating within a male-dominated political landscape, Lyn Paolo (Scandal costume designer) dresses Washington in soft silhouettes using “whites, pinks, peaches, and creams” to exude professionalism, femininity, power and leadership. As a political fixer, Pope often gives hard nosed advice under difficult circumstances; it’s important that others immediately feel comfortable and safe with her—soft, warm colors help make that happen.














Viewers also love Pope’s home décor. Bedding from West Elm and delicate, long-stemmed wine glasses from Crate and Barrel pop off the screen in her home. Your bedroom can add to or take away from the femininity and power you display daily.

As the second season came to an end, Gladiators—nickname for staff at Olivia Pope & Associates and for fans of the show—have many questions left to ponder:

  • Why, Huck? Was Huck the actual shooter?
  • Who’s behind it all? Mellie? Hollis? Sally?
  • Will President Grant survive?
  • How will Olivia and OPA be implicated?
  • What will happen to the love triangle now?
  • Can Olivia fix this?

Amid the steamy love scenes, high-powered career moves, and glamorous Diva style, the only other woman to rival Pope in running for best year ever is none other than Beyonce herself.  In case you missed last night’s Next Chapter episode, check out the best moments below…

CoCo Chanel’s Scandal REVEALED!

August 4th, 2011 by Christen

If you’ve ever wanted inspiration or an epiphanic moment to stimulate your fashion creativity – this isn’t the story for you.  This is the story of Nazi-led espionage, drugs, lesbian tendencies and a fashion trailblazer with a lot to hide.

Lisa Chaney’s forthcoming biography, Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life, lays bare hard evidence of the fashion maven’s use of opiates, as well as new insights into Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel’s bisexuality, multiple affairs and love with a Nazi spy.

Penguin says: ‘Drawing on newly discovered love letters and other records, Chaney’s controversial book reveals the truth about Chanel’s drug habit and lesbian affairs. ‘And the question about Chanel’s German lover during World War II (was he a spy for the Nazis?) is definitively answered.’




WWD goes one step further, saying the book is able to prove that the lover in question, Hans Günther von Dincklage, did indeed spy for the Nazis throughout the Second World War.  Quoting en email from Ms Chaney’s Viking publicist, WWD cites: ‘Whether Chanel was aware of this is unknown, but after that war she lived in neutral Switzerland for a while, to avoid any proceedings against her.’

In the book, due for release in November, Ms Chaney uses the newly discovered letters as well as documents from the Swiss Federal Archives to quell any doubt as to the truth of some of the less palatable aspects of Ms Chanel’s colourful lifestyle.  Viking says of the 20th Century’s most famous fashion designer: ‘Her numerous liaisons, whose poignant and tragic details have eluded all previous biographers, were the very stuff of legend.

‘Witty and mesmerizing, she became muse, patron, or mistress to the century’s most celebrated artists, including Picasso, Dalí, and Stravinsky.’  Ms Chanel’s infamous life has inspired many a graphic recounting of her rags-to-riches story.


The re-released biography, Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life by Justine Picardie, which includes illustrations by Karl Lagerfeld, has drawn attention to Ms Chanel’s reliance on opiates before, saying the designer saw morphine as a ‘harmless sedative.’  Successful 2009 movie, Coco Before Chanel, drew criticism for playing down some of Ms Chanel’s less savoury antics, while Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, also released in 2009, throws a spotlight onto the designer’s love affair with the Russian composer.

“Fashion is always of the time in which you live. It is not something standing alone. But the grand problem, the most important problem, is to rejeuvenate women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous. “

– Coco Chanel
