Scandal Marla Gibbs Shonda Rhimes

'Scandal' viewers were in an uproar last night when actress/comedienne Marla Gibbs returned to the popular ABC TV drama in her role as "Rose" from episode 11.

Gibbs, who turns 84 on June 14, asked Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) to help her find out what happened to her recently deceased friend, Lois -- Olivia's kindly neighbor who was brutally murdered when Olivia was kidnapped in episode 10.

Olivia helps Rose find Lois and give her a proper burial. Olivia lies to Rose about Lois's horrific death, saying Lois died of a brain aneurysm "on a warm beautiful day" on the beach. Olivia, who has a drinking problem, has flashbacks of herself being stuffed in a body bag with her dead neighbor Lois on top of her. The sexy Washington PR 'fixer' didn't have the heart to tell Rose why her friend died (in a kidnapping plot to control the president).

Olivia is shocked when Rose reveals the true nature of her and Lois's intimate relationship. Rose met Lois when she was 16 and the teenagers began a torrid, but brief, affair that ended when Lois's parents found out about them and moved Lois out of state. This is when the opinionated Internet collective known as 'Black Twitter' descended into uncontrolled chaos, with hundreds of 'tweets' per second decrying, "SHONDA TURNED FLORENCE INTO A LESBIAN!"

Gibbs played Florence, the feisty maid on the 1970s TV sitcom 'The Jeffersons'. She also played Mary Jenkins on the 1980s TV sitcom '227'.

Word has it that Gibbs accepted the role as a spinster lesbian because, grandmotherly roles are hard to come by in Hollywood.

Embattled actress Lena Dunham makes her first guest appearance in next week's episode of 'Scandal'.

    For Our @Man:

    A Georgia woman with massive size 48NN breasts is hoping to say ta-ta to the single life — and she’s taken her bid for a boyfriend on TLC’s “Strange Love.”

    Kristy Love, 36, a massage therapist in Atlanta, documents her quest for a suitor — and the struggles and perks of living with natural bosoms that weigh almost 32 pounds combined — on an upcoming episode of the reality show.

    “My boobies do not need to be alone,” she says, after bouncing her breasts with her hands and giggling. “It’s time for them to find a man. It’s time for me to find love because I'm not getting any younger.”

    Love, who started developing breasts at age 8, said she used to be embarrassed about her enormous chest and wore two bras to make them appear smaller.

    You can thank me later :winky:

    Did yall read the write up where Robin Thicke threw Pharreal under the bus :think:

    Said he lied about everything and the reason he claimed they wrote the song together was because he wrote 6 albums (solo) and Pharreal wrote the biggest hit of his (Robin's) career within 30 minutes and he wanted some credit. They asked if he considered himself to be an honest person. He said no thats why I'm separated :facepalm: Now the Gaye family is suing over another song on the album :yes:

    Let me find the article :pc:

    I read the transcripts from the court testimony... :shrugs:
    Seemed more like business as usual. I've never known anyone who thought of Robin Thicke as a particularly great "songwriter."

    This is getting too much coverage.

  • kamadiva

    @SugarFoot - Re; Robin Thicke

    He has plenty of Marvin Gaye sampled songs.....and that is not uncommon for Artists to want their name on a song. They will usually give more $$$ to the person who wrote it so that they get some credit.

    If Erick Sermon of EPMD can afford to pay for Marvin Gaye songwriting credits...then Robin Thicke needs to PAY THE FAWK UP. The END.
