Official Season 5 Scandal Trailer

official season 5 scandal trailerConsidering how many promo videos have been released in support of Scandal’s upcoming season, it’s hard to imagine this one is being billed by ABC as the official season five trailer. Compared to some of the other Olitz-themed videos, this one is relatively tame, and lasts a mere thirty seconds.

Like all Scandal trailers, this one is heavy on Olitz and even heavier on the drama. We get lots of sexy scenes of our favorite political couple rolling around in the hay. As well as the one thing I’m sure the couple’s fans have been waiting for since season one: the apparent dissolution of Fitz’s marriage to Mellie.

Scandal Season Five Promo Clip

SCANDAL SEASON FIVE PROMOWhile I’m not the world’s biggest Scandal or Olitz fan, I do respect ABC and the show’s writers for being smart enough to give the fans what they want.

Unlike shows like Empire, which recently unveiled a promo clip full of scenes from their upcoming season, Scandal’s promo clip instead features nothing but love scenes of past Olitz rendezvous, including some that actually managed to make even me blush.

Kerry Washington Inks Beauty Deal

KERRY WASHINGTON FRONTS NEUTROGENA

Actress Kerry Washington has inked a deal with Neutrogena very similar to the one Rihanna inked earlier this year with MAC Cosmetics.

According to WWD, Kerry will not only front campaigns for the company, she has also been named Brand Ambassador and Creative Consultant.

As a consultant, Kerry’s duties will go far beyond just appearing in the company’s ads. According to general manager Michelle Frye, Kerry will oversee the creation and marketing of new products specifically aimed at “young women with their pulse on what is now.”

As Brand Ambassador, Kerry duties will bring her in direct contact with fans at promotional and philanthropic events. Past ambassadors include Kristen Bell, Hayden Panettiere and Gabrielle Union.

According to Kerry she is a longtime Neutrogena user, and cites the Healthy Volume Mascara and Makeup Remover Pads as her favorite products

“For me, there has to be a connection between health and beauty. Those things can’t be in a vacuum and I think Neutrogena really champions healthy skin and beauty with a focus on health. So I gravitated toward their values and commitment to quality,” she said. “The more I met with these smart women, scientists and executives, it became clear that the company really values intelligence and the well-rounded beautiful woman, and I felt that was something I could really get behind.”

Look for Kerry’s ads to start running just in time for the holiday season.

‘Scandal’ Heading to BET in the Fall

SCANDAL TO AIR ON BET THIS FALL

Kerry Washington’s hit ABC drama ‘Scandal’ is heading to BET this fall. According to published reports, season one and two of the political drama will begin airing in late summer, while current episodes of season three will air a week after they are broadcast on ABC.

BET will begin airing the first two seasons with a marathon starting in August and will continue to air episodes up until the season three premiere in September.

The magic number for shows to be sold into syndication used to be 5 years, 100 episodes, but in recent years shows with exceptional hit value have had their syndication rights snapped up as early as their first season (Glee, Modern Family).

Congrats to Kerry and company.

Ain’t no money like syndication money. LOL

Kerry Washington’s Violet Eyes

If you have a warn rich skin tone like actress Kerry Washington, then violet eye shadow may be more wearable than think. At the Los Angeles premiere of “Mother and Child,” Kerry’s amethyst hue was worn just above her crease line, giving the bronze beauty’s eyes a subtle yett striking glow. To get the look yourself apply sparingly and choose a shade with a hint of shimmer, like Crème de Violet by MAC.
