Kerry Washington is totally becoming a best friend in our heads. The mother-to-be showed up to “Ellen” in a modest, yet fierce Shoshanna dress that disguised her baby bump (most of the time), flashing a glowing smile as she giggled at Ellen’s witty jokes. In between chuckles, Kerry explained where “Scandal” writers get their juicy material. I do think the show is based on their imagination more than real life,” she said.

Afterwards, she and Ellen shared a hearty laugh at the many magazine “covers” Kerry’s landed since Olivia Pope became a household name: Knitting Week, Chess Masters, Pantsuit Monthly and Kale Quarterly, etc. Kerry played along with Ellen’s gestures saying, Kale is really good for you…Listen you know I’m a Lady Gaga fan, so when she did the meat dress I said I would do the kale dress.”

Kerry admitted that she puts her mom in charge of archiving the glossy books that she covers. “Early on I figured, well you know, I might have a grandchild one day who wants to see this stuff, but I don’t want to live with this stuff in my house. So I send it all to my mother and she archives it. She gets to be proud.”

Speaking of grandchild, mama Kerry must be so elated to have one on the way!
