Columbus Short Leaves ‘Scandal’

Columbus Short Leaves Scandal

According to published reports, ‘Scandal’ star Columbus Short will not return for the hit TV series’ fourth season. Short’s character, Harrison, has been on the show since season 1.

Short’s career was sidelined by recent domestic squabbles with his wife, Tuere Short, who filed for a divorce.

Teure accused Short of holding a knife to her throat during a domestic spat on April 7. She also alleged he poured wine on her and threatened to hit her with the wine bottle. Last week she obtained a temporary restraining order, and a judge ordered Short to collect his things and move out of the couple’s residence.

Short released this statement via his publicist today:

“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank [creator] Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas. I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful.”

      @14 :dead: U r still crazy as hell. I can’t remember ur other handle or log in name, but I remember u from NC I believe.

      LOL at the vivid white trash description of Brittany. Too, too funny. Columbus messed up. Major show, major show runner (Shonda Rhimes), and of course a major studio (ABC). He didn’t shoot himself in the foot, he blew both them schits off. So ridiculous. Gabrielle Union’s on suicide watch because ANY regular part on this show is gravy, but u get cast and mess it up after 3 seasons? At least make it to 100 episodes and get that syndication money.

      He got a part that probably should’ve gone to Anthony Mackie or someone with better acting chops. I’ve asked Shonda to cast Mackie or Michael B. Jordan. Schit by now, Shonda probably like to hell with black actors. First Isiah, now Columbus. We’ll see.

      @Luvn-Life: now that he’s fired…he ain’t gonna be talking bout nothing. LOL

      ===================

      Totally agree!!! At least make it to syndication and get that steady money ya big dummy!! I hope Shonda casts another black male, but like you said, first Isiah and now this :facepalm: *LeSigh* :no:

    • luVn_liFe…

      What’s the thought on Donald Sterling. Seems to me the GF was egging him on, hence why there’s the long recording..
