All that talk about “Scandal” actress Kerry Washington (pictured above) sleeping with President Barack Obama apparently hasn’t fazed Michelle Obama. The first lady admits to binge watching the popular ABC TV series that is based on a Washington, D.C. “fixer” who handles crises for the president of the United States.
Coincidentally, Washington celebrated her 37th birthday today, while Mrs. Obama celebrated her 50th birthday 2 weeks ago today.
It’s no secret that “Scandal” is one of the most addicting shows on TV, so we’re not exactly surprised that First Lady Michelle Obama has fallen under Olivia Pope’s spell.
On a long flight to Hawaii over the holidays, Obama said she fell in love with the ABC drama.
“I watched all the seasons; I caught up on ‘Scandal.’ I had never watched it,” she told Ryan Seacrest on Thursday (Jan. 30). “I love Kerry Washington. She is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”
Michelle isn’t the only Obama who has developed a binge watching habit. In December, Barack told the New York Times that he likes to kick back and relax with shows like “House of Cards,” “Homeland,” “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones.”
