Right now, the hottest actress on Prime-Time TV is Kerry Washington, the star of ABC’s sexy political thriller, Scandal. As Olivia Pope attempts to fix the shenanigans of Washington, her on-going affair with the President of the United States heats up the action. Not since Theresa Graves in Get Christy Love! in the 70’s has an African American woman lead an American network drama show. It will be interesting how the series models real life as last week, Kerry announced that she was expecting her first child with husband and NFL player, Nnamdi Asomugha.
Kerry’s been nominated for a 2013 Emmy for her role on Scandal and hosted this week’s Saturday Night Live. In a digital short, Kerry and SNL cast member, Jay Pharoah, perform a hilarious parody of a parody as Ylvis’ “What The Fox Says” becomes “What My Girl Says”. This is not Kerry’s first dalliance with music videos. In 2009, she co-directed and acted in Common’s video “I Want You”. In a preview to her scandalous sexual escapades on TV, Kerry plays a seductress in Maxwell’s “Bad Habits”.
