Dream Killer: Shonda Rhimes Snaps Back “I’ve Never Heard Of Eric West!”

Published

Gladiators are going ham right now!

It’s no secret that Columbus Short is going through his own personal Scandal these days and subsequently got fired from the ABC drama. On Wednesday, Deadline reported that up and coming actor Eric West would fill the shoes vacated by Short and assume the role of Harrison on the hit show.

But, Scandal creator and writer, Shonda Rhimes was quick to put that rumor to rest.

We appreciate the fact that Shonda set the record straight, but did she have to ether Eric like that?! We’re sure the role would have been a dream come true for the kid, but after Rhimes’ “I’ve never heard of Eric West” comment, it doesn’t look like he has a chance at starring in any ShondaLand production.

For their part in the mix up, Deadline posted an apology to all the Scandal fans.

Sorry, Scandal fans. In the rush of upfront news, a release purported to be from ABC about an actor named Eric West, whose name had been circulated for weeks, replacing troubled Scandal co-star Columbus Short got to me. It turns out it was an elaborate hoax, which is very unfortunate. Scandal creator said on Twitter that she has never heard of West and there are no plans to recast Short.

It was Mrs. Hart’s first red carpet since giving birth to the couple’s first child, Kenzo Kash, just three weeks ago. To say it was a snapback is an understatement. The 30-year-old, who worked out during her entire pregnancy, look sexy and svelt in a elegant black number while her superstar hubby hit the carpet in a black suit with white trim.

Although the couple faced some bumps in the road earlier this year with Kev being extorted over a video showing him cheating on his wife, the couple has bounced back. And on Tuesday night’s jungle-themed red carpet Hart told HipHollywood, “My wife is just an amazing woman … I would not be me right now without that woman in my life.”

You can see Kev, alongside Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and more, when “Jumani: Welcome To The Jungle” hits theaters on December 20th.
