Khloé Kardashian Says Reliving Tristan Thompson’s Cheating Scandal Is ‘Incredibly Difficult’

This week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians will be incredibly emotional for Khloé Kardashian.

Addressing her fans hours before E! airs the episode — which will document the moment she first found out about boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal — the reality star wrote on social media about how “uncomfortable” it is for her to relive the memories.

“Tonight’s episode is an uncomfortable and super emotional one for me, but when we signed up for this show over a decade ago, we signed up for a reality show, which meant showing you guys inside our lives, the good, the bad and the ugly,” wrote Kardashian, 34, on Instagram alongside a clip from the show.

“To relive these moments all over again is incredibly difficult emotionally but I also hope that with every trail , tribulation and curve ball life throws at us, that we ALL get to learn from our journeys,” she continued.

In a sweet note, she added that their daughter True, who was born just days after video showing Thompson, 27, getting close to another woman first surfaced, has been “the ultimate gift.”

“Amidst the tough times, I have been blessed with the ultimate gift, my angel who has changed my life in ways I never could have imagined,” she wrote. “Remember that you are never alone in your pain, and that everything is temporary. Pain, joy, elation, panic, anxiety, it is all temporary. Be grateful for the experiences that continue to build character, and make you who you are.”

Kardashian also revealed she may not be discussing the episode online after it airs, like she frequently does.

In response to a supportive fan on Twitter, who wrote that they would understand if Kardashian laid low tonight, the Good American co-founder wrote, “I will see how much I can handle.”

“This goes for tonight AND next week,” she added, hinting that next week’s episode will also tackle an incredibly emotional subject for her.

In a sneak peek at Sunday’s episode, it was revealed that Kylie Jenner was tasked with breaking the emotional news to her sister.

“No one had the courage to tell Khloé, because we knew she was days away from giving birth,” Jenner, 21, says in a first-look posted by E! News. “We didn’t want to stress her out, but we knew that it was the right thing to do. So, I’m the one that told Khloé.”

“I didn’t want to hurt her feelings, but I felt like she should hear from one of us versus on the internet,” she adds.

Although Kardashian and Thompson are still together and looked picture-perfect while celebrating Halloween with their daughter, the reality star is still healing after his cheating scandal, according to a source.

The insider recently told PEOPLE the new mom has been having a “really tough” time and “still has a lot of hurt and anger.”

Last month, a source told PEOPLE that Kardashian, 34, delayed her trip back to Cleveland, Ohio, with Thompson, 27, to spend time in Los Angeles with her family. Just one day before Halloween, she was photographed supporting the athlete at his home game at the Quicken Loans Arena.

“Khloé wants so badly for True to have a happy family,” said the source. “She wants to do what’s best for her daughter, and to her that means being with Tristan.”

The entire Kardashian-Jenner clan has remained tight-lipped about the move, including matriarch Kris Jenner, who demurred late last month when Ellen DeGeneres asked her if Kardashian was moving to the Midwest.

Kardashian’s mom and sisters “aren’t happy” about her move back to Cleveland and “think she deserves better,” said the source. “They definitely don’t trust him.”

Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on E!

‘Less Cellulite’! Kim Kardashian Praises Trainer in Wake of Sister Khloé’s Cheating Scandal

Kim Kardashian West is very thankful for her trainer.

Days after the mother of three shared bikini photos from her trip to Turks and Caicos with sister Kourtney Kardashian — which were all originally posted after news broke that Tristan Thompson had allegedly cheated on Khloé Kardashian during her pregnancy — Kardashian West thanked trainer Melissa Alcantara for transforming her body.

“Shout out to my trainer @fitgurlmel who really changed my body,” the reality star, 37, wrote alongside a bikini snap from her recent vacation.

“When I wasn’t happy with what I saw back in the mirror I spent a whole year training so hard 5 or 6 days a week putting in a lot of work and changed the way that I eat and there’s such a noticeable difference,” she said, adding that now not only was her body firmer, but also that she had “less cellulite and so much more” confidence.

RELATED: Kim Kardashian Celebrates 20th High School Reunion In Midst of Sister Khloé’s Cheating Scandal

“THANK YOU for waking up at 5am to do crazy body building workouts & springs that I hate 😜& putting me on to this lifestyle,” Kardashian West added.

Detailing the “grueling” fitness routine, KUWTK star’s trainer previously told PEOPLE Kardashian West “loves and hates leg days.”

“But she’s committed! She knows what it takes.” she continued, praising her client for being a “workhorse.”

Hours after sharing the beachside snap, the 37-year-old also posted another photo from her Turks and Caicos trip, in which she appeared to be wearing the same black bikini.

Accessorizing her simple bikini with a “Calabasas California” hat, she fittingly captioned the snapshot, “Calabasas girl in Turks.”

Explaining why she previously decided to delete a few bikini photos from Instagram, Kardashian West wrote on Friday that she “didn’t like the vibe on my page,” but that she had “re-filtered” them and would be “resposting some.”

Alongside one of the deleted photos, the reality star added that she’s “crazy about the vibe on my IG page. #PositiveVibesOnly,” which could also be an indirect way of addressing the scandal surrounding her family at the moment.

“Khloé still hasn’t made a decision about her relationship with him. They’re not broken up yet,” a source explained. “It’s such a tough call for her to make right now, and she’s just taking it day by day.”

But even though her future with the 27-year-old NBA player may be unclear, there’s one thing Kardashian is totally sure about: how much she loves her daughter.

She is so happy to be a mom,” another insider previously revealed.

While Khloé has yet to share a photo of her bundle of joy, the source added that she “is very cute with lots of black hair.”

The Complicated Role Race Plays In The ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Scandal

The “Bachelor” franchise’s longtime problems with race have been cast into a harsh spotlight in the past couple of weeks. With rumors swirling over alleged on-set sexual misconduct between a black male and a white woman, both members of the summer spin-off “Bachelor in Paradise” cast, many viewers have been left unsettled by dueling narratives that play into the most damaging stereotypes about black men and about women.

Warner Bros., which produces the series, put out a statement this week saying that the investigation had been concluded and no evidence of misconduct had been found. Though no charges were filed against the man in question and the show has now resumed filming, the event left a trail of news articles about the man’s purported misconduct and about the woman’s speculated sexual promiscuity. 

While, in recent years, the problems with slut-shaming and victim-blaming of alleged assault victims have drawn attention from mainstream media outlets, audiences like the predominantly white Bachelor Nation have less frequently been asked to confront how race plays a role in how we react to allegations of rape.

Historically speaking…when accusations have been made against black men for the rape of white women, and these panics and fears ensue, there’s very often no correlation between the actual incidence of rape and the hysteria around it.
Carina Ray, Professor of African and Afro-American Studies

To get some historical perspective on the particular issues raised by sexual assault cases involving black men and white women, HuffPost’s “Here to Make Friends” podcast chatted with Carina Ray, an Associate Professor of African and Afro-American Studies at Brandeis University, and author of Crossing the Color Line: Race, Sex, and the Contested Politics of Colonialism in Ghana.

“Historically speaking […] when accusations have been made against black men for the rape of white women, and these panics and fears ensue, there’s very often no correlation between the actual incidence of rape and the hysteria around it,” Ray said, pointing to the notorious case of Emmett Till, a black boy who was brutally murdered after he was alleged to have whistled at a white woman. “There’s this huge gap between reality and perception that has historically contextualized this question.” 

Black men have, in many historical and contemporary contexts, been falsely depicted or assumed to be sexual threats to white female virtue ― a racist perception that has endangered the lives of black men. Conversely, she added, white men have long enjoyed relative impunity for sexual aggression, especially when women of color, and black women in particular, are the victims. 

In an email, Ray elaborated on the point, saying, “We also need to interrogate the presumptions that underline how victimhood is defined and assessed. It’s quite telling that we proceed under the assumption that she is the victim and he’s the perpetrator,” she wrote. “But if we understand the history we must also understand that black men have often been the victim in these rape allegation cases. That is to say that it’s not a question of being cleared, but rather of the very real and often heinous consequences that the accusation itself results in. That might be something that the show’s producers need to think about ― the disparate outcomes that black and white men will face when something like this occurs.” 

Try to move beyond a question of, ‘does the history of interracial rape and the way in which black men have often been unfairly accused of rape…say something definitive about what happened in this case.’
Carina Ray, Professor of African and Afro-American Studies

On the podcast, Ray also emphasized that placing the event in context does not mean we can extrapolate exactly what happened in a given incident ― what’s more important, she explained, is understanding the prejudices and baggage that may be influencing our perception and working to counteract them.

“Try to move beyond a question of, does the history of interracial rape and the way in which black men have often been unfairly accused of rape, does that actually say something definitive about what happened in this case,” Ray said. “Instead of doing that, just say, how has that history influenced how people view this particular case?”

To hear more of the conversation, and an interview on the legal aspects of the case with civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom, check out the latest episode of “Here to Make Friends”:

Corinne Olympios’ Lawyers: ‘Our Own Investigation Will Continue into Bachelor in Paradise Sex Scandal  

 

The Bachelor in Paradise controversy is far from over if you ask Corinne Olympios‘ legal team.

Shortly after Warner Bros. released a statement Tuesday announcing that an investigation had produced no evidence of sexual misconduct on the show’s set last week, an attorney for the 25-year-old business owner and former Bachelor contestant has confirmed she will continue to pursue the allegations.

“It needs to be made clear that production of Bachelor in Paradise was shut down because of multiple complaints received from BiP producers and crew member on the set,” Olympios’ attorney Martin Singer tells PEOPLE in a statement. “It was not shut down due to an complaint filed by Corinne against anyone.”

The statement continues, “It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal investigation, would state that no wrong doing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard.”

On Tuesday, 10 days after announcing production had officially been halted, Warner Bros. confirmed that filming will soon resume.

“As we previously stated, we recently became aware of allegations regarding an incident on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We take all such allegations seriously. The safety, security and well-being of the cast and crew is our number one concern, and we suspended filming so that the allegations could be investigated immediately and thoroughly. Our internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident. We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy.  Production on this season of Bachelor in Paradise will be resuming, and we plan to implement certain changes to the show’s policies and procedures to enhance and further ensure the safety and security of all participants.”

ABC confirmed the news with its own statement to PEOPLE on Tuesday: “We appreciate the swift and complete investigation by Warner Bros. into allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise. Given their results, the series will resume production and will air this summer on ABC.”

PEOPLE sources previously confirmed season 4 production was suspended after a producer raised concerns about an alleged sexual encounter between contestants DeMario Jackson and Olympios, both of whom had reportedly been drinking heavily all day.

Bachelor in Paradise will return later this summer on ABC.

‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Star Corinne Olympios Hires Top Lawyer Following Scandal

After days of speculation on the “Bachelor in Paradise” scandal, Corinne Olympios, a contestant who allegedly took part in a sexual incident during taping in Mexico last week, is speaking out.

ABC halted production of the show on Sunday over “allegations of misconduct” apparently involving Olympios and fellow cast member DeMario Jackson. Olympios has now hired top Hollywood attorney Marty Singer to represent her throughout Warner Bros.’ investigation into the situation.

In a statement released by her rep, Stan Rosenfield, Olympios characterized the incident as a nightmare becoming reality:

I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened the June 4. Although I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production.

As a woman, this is my worst nightmare and it has now become my reality. As I pursue the details and facts surrounding that night and the immediate days after, I have retained a group of professionals to ensure that what happened on June 4 comes to light and I can continue my life, including hiring an attorney to obtain justice and seeking therapy to begin dealing with the physical and emotional trauma stemming from that evening.

According to multiple reports, a highly intoxicated Olympios had a sexual encounter with Jackson in a swimming pool while crew members continued filming. Following that, a field producer reportedly filed a formal complaint and Warner Bros. suspended production of the show, sending the rest of the cast back to the U.S.

“Once the investigation is complete,” Warner Bros. said in a statement earlier this week, “we will take appropriate responsive action.”

Jackson, who reportedly claims that the sexual acts were consensual, also spoke out, telling Entertainment Tonight, “I have nothing to say. You know, Corinne’s an awesome girl and that’s all I have to say.” He added of his fans, “Love you all, thank you for the support.”

“Bachelor in Paradise” Season 4, which was set to debut Aug. 8, brings together former contestants from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” for another shot at love.

At this point, it’s safe to say the show probably won’t go on.

At This Point In His Presidency, Obama’s Biggest Scandal Was Using Dijon Mustard

As President Donald Trump continues to erode American democracy, you can at least take comfort in knowing he isn’t using Dijon mustard on his burgers.

In May 2009, Fox News host Sean Hannity devoted airtime on his show to a frank, honest conversation about whether then-President Barack Obama was capable of leading the country. His biggest issue was that America could not trust a president that uses Dijon mustard on his food.

“Take a look at [Obama] ordering his burger with a very special condiment,” Hannity said on his program at the time, before showing a clip of POTUS at a Virginia restaurant.

“I’m gonna have your very basic cheddar cheeseburger, medium-well,” Obama told the cashier. “I just want mustard, no ketchup. You got a spicy mustard or something like that? Dijon mustard or something?”

“I hope you enjoyed that fancy burger,” Hannity shot back.

Eight years later, the U.S. now has a president who has bragged about sexually assaulting women, is accused of colluding with Russia to help him win an election, golfs more than he leads, ignores climate change evidence, and petulantly shoves world leaders when he doesn’t get to be the center of attention.

Oh, he also eats his steaks well-done with ketchup.  

It’s unclear why Hannity’s investigation never led to the removal of President Obama, but at least the American people can finally rest assured that these types of scandals are finally over.

Stunning ‘Scandal’ Monologue Captures The Emotional Burden Black Women Carry

During the “Scandal” season finale, Mama Pope spoke to a truth that many black women deeply understand. 

While being detained for conspiring to kill the president-elect, Olivia’s mom, Maya (played by Khandi Alexander), addresses her ex-husband, Eli, whom she accurately suspects is behind her arrest.

Maya pleads her case to Eli, who’s behind a one-way window, insisting that she’s in Washington, D.C. to help protect their daughter.

She comes to the realization that Eli thinks he doesn’t need her help. Every second of her monologue is a seething reminder of how tragically under-appreciated, devalued and disrespected black women are by everyone, including black men:

“Damn shame. I tell you… being a black woman. Be strong, they say. Support your man, raise your man, think like a man. Well damn, I gotta do all that? Who’s out here working for me, carrying my burden, building me up when I get down? Nobody. Black women out here trying to save everybody and what do we get? Swagger jacked by white girls wearing cornrows and bamboo earrings. Ain’t that a bitch? But we still try. Try to help all y’all. Even when we get nothing. Is that admirable or ridiculous? I don’t know.”

The scene was shared on “Scandal’s” Facebook page on Thursday, and it’s been viewed more than 2.4 million times. Many people commented about how much Maya’s monologue resonates with them.

“I had all of the feels and the chills during this monologue,” Carla Bronner wrote. “This is a description of African-American women’s lives that only A-A women can write (thank you, Shonda) and speak fierce authenticity (thank you Khandi Alexander).”

Facebook user, Kay Lowe, echoed that sentiment. “If this does not speak to the souls of black women…past and present…feels sudden urge to *stomp feet? Amen? Shout?…so many feelings*…that is an EMMY award by itself. That moment in TV right there….#TRUTH,” she said.

Folks on Twitter weighed in, too.

‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Scandal’ And ‘HTGAWM’ Returns Delayed By Trump’s Pre-Inauguration Special

Fans of ABC’s beloved Thursday night lineup will have to wait one more week for the returns of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” and the premiere of “Scandal,” due to a Donald Trump pre-inauguration special. 

Excuse us for one moment … 

ABC has reportedly bumped new episodes of #TGIT in favor of a “20/20” special titled “America’s First Family: The Trumps Go to Washington” on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 10 p.m. Repeats of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “HTGAWM” will air before the special. The network will then air three brand new episodes the following week on Jan. 26.

“I just think that ABC does its programming,” Shonda Rhimes told TVLine at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Tuesday about the decision to postpone #TGIT. “I’m not in charge of scheduling. I’m fine with whatever they want to do. It has nothing to do with my job. I stay in my lane.”

“I honestly don’t have anything to do with programming or scheduling, and don’t pay attention to it or spend very much time caring about it,” she added.

Now drink like you’re Olivia Pope and your wine of the month subscription is about to end to make this news go down more easily.

How Debbie Reynolds And Elizabeth Taylor’s Tabloid Scandal Almost Destroyed Their Friendship

Debbie Reynolds is best known as the song-and-dance whiz who dazzled us in “Singin’ on the Rain,” “The Tender Trap” and “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” The woman never stopped working. New generations were introduced to her through “Will & Grace,” “Halloweentown,” “Behind the Candelabra” and a wealth of other roles.

Reynolds, who died Wednesday at age 84, was also a gossip fixture thanks to her friendship with the high priestess of the tabloids, Elizabeth Taylor. The actresses became fast friends circa 1950 when they met at MGM, the studio responsible for releasing many of Reynolds’ most famous musicals. By that point, Taylor had become an established teen star, thanks to breakthrough roles in “National Velvet,” “A Date with Judy” and “Father of the Bride.”

“We went to school together on the lot, when she was in between films,” Reynolds reportedly told People magazine in 2015. “I was just a beginner, and she and I were not in any manner alike, but we got along very well because I was in awe of going to school with Elizabeth Taylor. And if anyone said they weren’t, then they were lying. Or blind.”

Taylor and Reynolds shared something else in common: They both had famous husbands. In fact, they were Old Hollywood’s primo glamour couples. Reynolds married singer Eddie Fisher in 1955, and they had two children ― son Todd Fisher and daughter Carrie Fisher, who also died this week. Taylor began her third marriage, to producer Mike Todd, in 1957. Fisher was Todd’s best man, and Reynolds was Taylor’s matron of honor. 

As the legend goes, everything went swimmingly for both couples ― until Todd’s private plane crashed in 1958. The producer died, and Fisher found himself comforting Todd’s widow, so much so that Taylor took a liking to him. She snatched him away from Reynolds, and the love triangle became a national sensation. Fisher and Taylor married in 1959, leaving Reynolds to raise her two children as a single mother. In 1964, Taylor left Fisher for her fifth husband, “Cleopatra” co-star Richard Burton. (Reynolds also remarried, in 1960.)

“I was the last to find out about the affair,” Reynolds told The Daily Mail in 2010. “There had been hints in the papers and I had noticed that when I turned up at functions or parties on my own my friends were whispering. Although I didn’t want to find out the truth, I had to face up to it. Even so, it was a great shock to find them together. It left me shattered.”

Reynolds also told The Daily Mail she was a virgin upon marrying Fisher. Raised in a strict religious household, she didn’t believe in divorce. But Taylor and Fisher told Reynolds she was “keeping them and true love apart,” so she backed down.

Taylor and Reynolds patched things up in 1966 when they encountered each other on the same ocean liner. “So I sent a note to her room and she sent a note back to mine saying that we should have dinner and get this over with and have a good time,” Reynolds told PopEater in 2011, according to The Hollywood Reporter

In 2001, they co-starred with Shirley MacLaine and Joan Collins in the television movie “These Old Broads,” co-written by Carrie Fisher.

Ed Helms Destroys Rolling Stone’s Rape Story Scandal During UVA Valedictory Speech

“Never let others define you, define yourselves.”

So began a seemingly comedic speech at the University of Virginia’s Valedictory Exercises by actor Ed Helms on Friday. In front of a large audience, the comedian peppered in jokes about Netflix and student loans before turning a harsh eye on the Rolling Stone rape story scandal, which has drawn widespread condemnation and lawsuits against the magazine.

“It has been said that a rolling stone gathers no moss,” Helms said. “I would add that sometimes a rolling stone also gathers no verifiable facts or even the tiniest morsels of journalistic integrity.”

“Rolling Stone tried to define you this year,” Helms said. “As a result, not only was this community thrown deep into turmoil, but the incredibly important struggle to address sexual violence on campuses nationwide was suddenly more confusing than ever and needlessly set back.”

The speech comes a month after Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism called Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s story “A Rape on Campus” a “journalistic failure” — a move that prompted Rolling Stone to retract the entire piece.

“The failure encompassed reporting, editing, editorial supervision and fact-checking,” the authors of the review said.

During his speech, Helms also delved into the strikingly negative news coverage of the Baltimore riots, chastising many major networks for their portrayal of the protestors as “thugs,” noting “Rolling Stone’s rush to define is just the tip of the iceberg.”

“The reductive labels aren’t helping and we better stop applying them, because there are a lot of Americans in a lot of pain,” Helms said. “We try to define others with simple labels because it makes the world easier to understand.”

“This community didn’t fall for the fallacy that just because Rolling Stone was wrong everything here must be perfectly peachy,” he continued. “You all had the courage to understand you can be outraged at Rolling Stone and still ask yourselves hard questions: When sexual violence does occur in our community, do we have the best possible protocols and resources available to our students? And UVA is charging forward to answer those questions and you should be proud of that.”

‘Scandal’ Star Bellamy Young Was Initially Only Cast For A Short, Three-Episode Arc

First Lady Mellie Grant’s intense personality and sharp wit has been an integral part of endless plot twists on ABC’s “Scandal,” but the character was intended to have only a short stint on the show.

Actress Bellamy Young joined HuffPost Live on Friday and said that showrunner Shonda Rhimes originally planned to break off Mellie’s rocky relationship with President Fitzgerald Grant, which would have left the character with a mere three-episode storyline. She explained to host Alyona Minkovski:

It’s a story about Fitz and Olivia, so I think that it was ancillary in their minds, initially. I just had two lines in the pilot and then when we got picked up, Shonda went around the table and started telling everyone what their arc would be over the first seven episodes… She got to me and… she said, ‘So I want to write a presidential divorce and I think you’ll be here about three episodes.’ And I was dying inside, but I was trying to keep smiling because I didn’t want to disappoint her.

Luckily, Young’s character made an impression on the writers, who decided to keep her around.

“Somehow they just found Mellie’s currency as a lever, as a wedge, and they started writing for it. And it’s been the most amazing ride,” Young said.

Racial Healing, Scandal and Popular Culture

“The stories we tell each other, the gossip we pass, and the media representation of events shape the meaning of our lives.” – -Rachel Godsil, Brianna Goodale, Perception Institute

The story of the brutal and untimely death of civil rights activist Jimmie Lee Jackson of Marion, Alabama, has been referenced in speeches, history books and news articles since that tragic day in 1965. But, when stories are told by a member of that community as in Ava DuVernay’s Selma film portrayal, the power of those authentic stories can touch hearts, open minds, mobilize masses and create opportunities for healing.

In the past two years, some of our nation’s most influential movies and television shows have dealt with racism and bias. From Fruitvale Station to Selma, Scandal to House of Cards, celebrated writers, actors and directors have brought these issues to the mainstream. This has all been accompanied by a drumbeat crescendo of news and analysis that goes beyond specific incidents to examine the roots of these issues and the trends that reinforce them.

For those of us who work for racial equity and healing each day, this is an encouraging trend and an opportunity, especially given Hollywood’s historical lack of support for people of color in front of and behind its cameras. As writers and producers become more diverse, they bring their own experiences, relationships and networks — resulting in well-crafted storylines with recognizable experiences.

These important pop culture moments may seem separate from our day-to-day lives, but stories matter. Research from the Perception Institute says that “culture plays an important role in reinforcing implicit bias, increasing our racial anxieties and undermining conversations about racial equality and opportunity.” And we also know that accurate, honest pop culture narratives can successfully combat stereotypes.

In just the past few weeks, the hit shows Scandal and House of Cards have addressed issues of race, while the 87th Annual Academy Awards became the subject of criticism for failing to include any black actors or directors and few others of color. On Scandal, we witnessed the gripping tale of an unarmed black teen fatally shot by a police officer and a father’s anguish when sitting over his son’s body calling out “He didn’t carry a knife” repeatedly to an ever-growing crowd. The protagonist, Olivia Pope, hired to help diffuse the situation, speaks truth to the police chief when he starts to ready the riot gear: “There is a dead child lying in the street in front of their homes. What would you do if there was a dead child, a child you knew, lying in the street in front of your home? The fact that they stand in groups and say things you do not like does not make them a mob … it makes them Americans.”

In true television fashion, justice comes swiftly when we learn that the knife was planted but not before the officer reveals his biases in a rant: “The truth is, those people in Rosemead have no respect for anything or anyone … Brandon Parker is dead because he didn’t have respect, because those people out there who are chanting and crying over his body, they didn’t teach him the right values.”

Those last few minutes say so much, an officer classifying entire swaths of a community, making a claim that a young child threatened his safety — and having that claim not be questioned, the chief having to be reminded that those gathered and grieving have the right to do so. It’s difficult for me to imagine how any viewer no matter what race would not have been moved by the pain generated in those moments. Importantly, if the media were able to capture the stories of parents, families and communities mourning the needless deaths of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Gardner, Weinjian Lu, Rafael Ramos, Deah Shaddy Barakay, Yusor Mohammad and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha and countless others, change might come about more swiftly.

Yet another timely example was how House of Cards used one its lead characters — the powerful and confident White House Chief of Staff “Remy” — to depict the horror, shame and powerlessness felt by so many men of color in the face of police bias. In a telling scene, Remy was pulled over by local police without apparent cause, arrested and slammed onto the hood of his vehicle just blocks from his post at the White House.

The trend is showing no signs of slowing down. The reactions to the Justice Department’s recent investigations, and the most recent high profile police killing of an unarmed black teen show that these issues will remain a part of the national conversation. Those reactions will continue to shape the stories we tell.

For five years, my colleagues at the W.K Kellogg Foundation, other foundations, our grantees and communities around the nation have generated tangible examples of what change looks like when people have the space to heal and work together for a better world. We embrace those who tell unvarnished stories about the impact of biases, the rich contributions of all people of color, and the benefits of an inclusive playing field. Pop culture is a forum where people are both entertained and enlightened. It simultaneously reflects the culture and pushes it forward. Let’s harness these moments by leveraging your water cooler conversations, social media platforms or mealtime discussions to highlight the impact of our unique stories. We can reimagine and refocus the narrative about people of color in this country, fostering a dialogue built on the equal and inherent value of all people, particularly men, women and children of color.

It’s Been Handled: We Played Office Dress-Up in The Limited x Scandal Collection

Like you, the Glamour team watches Scandal and rehashes while grabbing coffee in the office (Nikki’s also a pretty prolific real-time tweeter should you need to discuss in the heat of the moment). It’s been so fun seeing Olivia Pope wear actual pieces from The Limited‘s collection with the show that I asked whether we could get some of the items into the office for us to play around with and, you know, maybe pretend we were having our own super-serious gladiator moments.

the-limited-scandal-black-white-trench-glamour-editors
Nikki got to wear this amazing black and white trench, totally spotted on Olivia in one of her power-striding moments. “The minute I saw it I fell in love,” she said. “It’s a fun new take on the traditional trench coat, and I’d ideally wear it with a chunky knit sweater, gray jeans, and black pumps.” She took it off long enough for a few of us to also try it on and we were collectively impressed by how well-made it felt and flattering it was on everyone. It’s sadly sold out online, but was so fab it’s worth a trip to your local brick and mortar to see if they’ve still got any in stock.

the-limited-scandal-poncho-glamour-editors

Julie and I both squealed when we pulled this plaid poncho out of the bag. Olivia Pope aside, she’d been searching for the silhouette and I was happy she got to try it out with this one. If you think figuring out what to wear it with would be tricky, don’t: Julie came to work in a sweater dress and leggings, not expecting to top it with a cape, and it worked beautifully. You can shop it here.

the-limited-scandal-blazer-glamour-editors
“I felt so professional and take-charge in this blazer, and I loved how versatile it was,” Anna told me. “You could wear it open or zipped up, but either way, I say pair with black pants and you’re ready to get things ‘handled.” It was one of the first pieces from the collaboration I remember Kerry Washington actually wearing and it definitely gave Anna the same sort of instant boss-lady polish (a good reason to keep it on the back of your chair in case you’re called to an impromptu meeting). Like the trench, it’s sold-out online but worth seeing if you can locate locally.
the-limited-scandal-peplum-glamour-editors
I loved this graphic black and white top on Olivia/Kerry and was excited for Lindsey to try it on. We played around with how to style it and what felt right to her. On the show, it was worn closed like a blouse, but Lindsey decided she actually liked it open as a little jacket. Either way: cute (and available).

the-limited-scandal-off-shoulder-sweater-glamour-editors
I was all about this off-the-shoulder sweater since it’s a major trend I’m loving in real life and captures the sexy-but-cozy style that’s perfect for a winter date night (or curling up on the couch alone with a long-stemmed glass of red, per Miss Pope). The top was long enough that our photographer actually asked me if it was a dress and that coverage means it could work with leggings. To dress it up for the office, I skipped jeans and paired with leather leggings.

Have you seen any of the collaboration pieces in person? If you haven’t, you seriously should stop by the next time you’re in the mall.

Why Actress Darby Stanchfield Refuses To Hug ‘Scandal’ Co-Star Scott Foley

Actress Darby Stanchfield may be the only woman in the world to ever turn down a hug from Scott Foley.

After Foley revealed Stanchfield’s staunch stance on hugs in a HuffPost Live interview last month, Stanchfield stopped by the studio to set the record straight.

As a new cast member on season two of the hit ABC show, Foley was a little too reserved for Stanchfield. While the rest of the actors behaved like rowdy “14-year-olds at summer camp” during each table read, Foley kept his cool.

“We’re all like pounding on the tables and high-fiving each other and hugging each other and laughing and crying through the table reads and such,” she said. “And he had this energy, and Portia de Rossi [who guest stars this season] went through it too, of like, ‘Okay, they seem cool, but is this real?’”

After picking up on Foley’s calm demeanor, Stanchfield opted for a handshake on their their first meeting, and the formal greeting just stuck.

“I shook his hand for the first time I met him, and it just kind of felt like this joke — like this natural thing of, like, we’re on handshake terms,” she said. “It felt like a thing of respect at the beginning, then it just became this joke of, like, ‘Dude, I don’t hug you.’”

Jon Stewart And ‘The Daily Show’ Are Ready For The NEXT Nude Photo Scandal

Some people are blaming the victims of the Hollywood nude photo hacking scandal for taking the pictures in the first place. But on Wednesday night’s “Daily Show,” host Jon Stewart fired back with the perfect response.

“I get it. These women were asking for it,” Stewart said. “It’s like they said to the Boston Strangler’s victims: ‘If you don’t want to get strangled, you shouldn’t have had a neck.'”

With that, Stewart turned to Senior Technology Correspondent Jordan Klepper, who’s clearly ready for the hackers: He appeared completely nude with his (hopefully not real) bank account and password information scrawled across his body.

“I’m taking back my sexual power,” Klepper declared. “You want celebrity naughty bits? Here they are: DING DING DING DING DING. Dinner time, you sick fucks!”

Check out Stewart’s look at the story in the clip above… and see more of Klepper than necessary below.

Jimmy Savile Sexual Abuse Scandal: 500 People Reported Incidents By Late Entertainer, Children’s Charity Claims

LONDON (AP) — A British children’s charity says at least 500 people have reported abuse by the late entertainer Jimmy Savile, with the youngest alleged victim just 2 years old.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children said Monday that the most common age group for victims was 13 to 15. Peter Watt, the charity’s director of child protection, said Savile was a “prolific sex offender … (who) lost no opportunity to identify vulnerable victims and abuse them.”

The cigar-chomping, platinum-haired Savile was a British television fixture for several decades, but after his death at 84 in 2011, witnesses and victims came forward to accuse him of sexual abuse. Police have since described the television and radio presenter as a serial sexual predator who used his fame to target young and mostly female victims, from star-struck teens at television recordings to patients in hospital beds.

A police investigation concluded last year that Savile’s abuse spanned half a century and included at least 214 offenses, most against victims under 18.

The NSPCC researched Savile’s crimes as part of a BBC documentary to be aired Monday.

It found more alleged victims than previously thought at Broadmoor psychiatric hospital. Police say they have received 16 allegations of abuse inside the institution.

Savile visited frequently as part of his charity work and was given his own set of keys to the hospital. In 1988, he was hired as an adviser to help resolve staff-management tensions at Broadmoor.

‘Scandal’: Mellie Pleads With Olivia To Come Back And Run Fitz’s Campaign (VIDEO)

In an unexpected turn of events on the latest “Scandal,” it was Mellie who was desperate to get Olivia back on Team Fitz. She may not have liked it, but she knew that her husband was better when his mistress was in the picture.

“He needs you, Olivia,” she pleaded. “He is tired, and broken and it isn’t the job. It’s doing the job without you. He’s not alive when you’re not here. He can’t breathe when you’re not here. He doesn’t have the will to run, much less win, when you’re not here, because you … you’re everything to him, Liv.”

Buddy TV’s Kelly Schremph felt bad for Mellie during that scene, but TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich thought the speech did the trick — so it might prove worth it. He figures it’s just a matter of time before Olivia agrees to run Fitz’s reelection campaign.

But, as E! Online’s Jenna Mullins pointed out, there is one potential hurdle. The episode also suggested that Fitz was responsible for taking down the plan that killed Olivia’s mother.

“Scandal” airs every Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
