Just to re-cap, ‘SCANDAL‘ is a new ABC series starring Kerry Washington, Columbus Short, and a bunch of other people. The drama focuses on a team of highly qualified fixers consultants who basically take care of any political controversies. I like the storyline and it does seem like an interesting show, but Kerry has never really wowed me with her acting. I’m only excited for her because finally she can be seen somewhere else instead of all these red carpet events. I mean, for a second I was beginning to wonder what her occupation was again. Anyways, check out the trailer once more below and be sure to share your opinion on the show. Remember, it premiers tonight at 10 on ABC.

I’ve noticed that in today’s society, most men tend to get involved with crazy women. Why is that so? Is it that they like all the drama of these “lunachics”? I think so. Maybe they’re trying to feed the male ego by dating these kind of girls; they often depict themselves as the hero, saving a damsel in distress, or someone to “fix” things. Note to the men doing this kind of thing, a relationship is not a house.
I think it also has something to do with the fact that men want a crazy chick in bed. So they’re probably thinking, if she’s crazy day-to-day then she must be in bed also. Some guys are looking for that adrenaline. Having a crazy girlfriend can bring lots of drama but somehow it makes them feel excited and alive. She’s bringing the “party” into his dull and boring life. Interesting!
