"Scandal" Star Kerry Washington GETS CUTESY At "Welcome To Shondaland" + Kimberly Elise Set For Vh1's Scripted Basketball Dancers Show "Bounce"

Gorgeous actress Kerry Washington was spotted looking fab at an event for "Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes.  See the pics inside and get the deets on Kimberly Elise's new "Bounce" gig on VH1.

 

Fab actress Kerry Washington attended The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences event "Welcome To ShondaLand: An Evening With Shonda Rhimes & Friends" on Monday. 

The event was held at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood, California.  And the star kept to a cutesy black and white theme in an Altuzarra dress (y'all know how I hate white shoes with a passion but the overall look gives off a nice vintage vibe).

 

 

Kerry posed with her "Scandal" co-star Katie Lowes.

 

Also on television....

 

Kimberly Elise is set to star in a new VH1 hourlong scripted pilot called "Bounce." Co-starring Taylour Paige and Dean Cain, the show is set in the world of professional basketball dancers.  The show is written by James LaRosa and be directed by Sanaa Hamri. This ought to be interesting....

 

BONUS:

Shonda Rhimes, who created "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy," and "Private Practice" has revealed that she adopted a baby girl named Emerson Pearl in Feburary. Recently, she let US Weekly photograph the nursery designed by Sandie Bailey and Delores Bond of design firm reVISIONs.

About the adoption, she said,

"I've been writing adoption into story lines on my shows and only a few people close to me knew about my plans," says Rhimes, who adopted daughter Harper in 2002. "I think the response was 'oh my goodness' from a lot of people." She added, "Emerson is incredibly mellow," says proud mama Rhimes. "We're just doing a lot of bonding right now. This is a happy time -- I feel so lucky."

Kimberly Elise is such an under appreciated actress. Sad that she is winding up on VH1. While Kerry is pretty, I do not care for her as an actress

Emerson and Harper...now those are some trust fund baby names... You know they are well off just because of the names... I pray Shonda and her growing family stays blessed! Also I am very happy and excited for Kerry, and her new show! she looks great btw...I'm confused about the other show with Kimberly Elise but I have faith that my girl will bring it! Yayyyy for the working girls <3333

I didn't read where they said

I didn't read where they said what character Kimberly Alise will play. For some reason I don't think it will be one of the dancers...possibly the dance coach or another character. Her acting history won't let me believe she would take a role as a groupie dancer at this point in her career.

I can't help but wonder if

I can't help but wonder if Shonda's adopted children are white. If you're familiar with her shows and how she writes, you "get" why I wonder this...

I cant imagine Kimberly Elise

I cant imagine Kimberly Elise playing a "basketball dancer". She seems so "saddity." Sounds like more of a role for some1 like Kat Graham. Raven Simone or Megan Goode would be a good choice, but even they are pushing the envelope b/c of their ages.

I agree. Kimberly Elise is a

I agree. Kimberly Elise is a great actress, and this seems a bit beneath her. Who knows? It could be good (though it sounds shallow), and I will check it out; because I support black ACTORS--not wannabes who think they're making great TV on reality shows.
