WE GOT POPE’D! | With the reelection machine revving up, Cyrus and Mellie court Leo Bergen, a top-shelf campaign manager, (played by Private Practice‘s Paul Adelstein) to keep Fitz in office. Leo, though, isn’t shy to list POTUS’ liabilities — including but by no means limited to his “My Wife’s a Frigid Shrew Problem.” All told, he notes, Fitz these days “looks like a loser. And if his heart’s not in it, he’s gonna lose. And I don’t ‘do’ losers.”

While it’s probably too early for Shonda Rhimes & Co. to decide how (and whether) Washington’s pregnancy will affect any upcoming story arcs, we thought it’d be interesting to examine how other modern TV shows have handled their leading ladies’ baby bumps — and whether said strategies might work on Scandal.

Scandal Recap: ‘Mellie Gaffe, Mellie Gaffe….’ – TV Show News

 Scandal Recap: Mellie Gaffe, Mellie Gaffe….   TV Show NewsThis week on ABC’s Scandal, Mellie “minted” Fitz’s rival in the upcoming election, Olivia handled a Weiner-ish situation and Jake’s mouth found itself in familiar territory.

When asked by a reporter at a presser to respond, Mellie handles it with great tact, only to let loose with a massive verbal boner when she thinks her mic is off. Cyrus than rails at her for turning D.C.’s flavor of the month into a White House contender. “You minted her ass,” while also birthing the hashtag #MellieHasaBigFatMouth,” he roars. Mellie offers a public mea culpa, but the damage may have already been done — Fitz’s worst possible rival, a Democratic female, is in the mix. Will “abandoned baby” dirty that Cy’s lackey Ethan dug up be enough to make the problem go away?
