It’s a known fact that Kerry Washington does not talk about her personal life. The beauty, however, has no problem dishing on being a mom and why it’s the best thing ever.

The Scandal actress stopped by The Late Late Show on Tuesday and revealed two major reasons motherhood is everything and more.

After guest Alec Baldwin joked about having to watch too many cartoons, Washington chimed in, “I feel a little bit the opposite, like now that I have kids I have an excuse to watch cartoons and sing all day long and no one judges me,” she said.

The 40-year-old added, “It’s great!”

Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha are parents to 3-year-old Isabelle and welcomed their second child together in October. So now, the couple has two mini humans running around. “Right now, it’s non-stop Moana in my house and Disney Jr. everything,” Washington told host James Corden.

And while chat about Kerry’s son and daughter are always joyous, host James Corden didn’t skip the hard-hitting questions. While talking about the star’s hit ABC show, James asked how her character, Olivia Pope, would deal with President Donald Trump.

“I always feel weird when people say that because I feel like we kind of got into this situation because we thought a fictional character on TV could fix things,” she said. “I feel like it’s up to us because I feel like that’s what democracy means. It’s not up to Olivia Pope. You have to fix it, we have to all fix it.”

Exclusive: ‘The Oath’s Cory Hardrict, Kwame Patterson Recall Being Harassed By Cops



If you want to take an emotional, entertaining and dangerous ride through the corrupt land of law enforcement, then we suggest you tune in for The Oath.  

Delivering a unique perspective on what it means to wear the color blue, the show follows a group of police officers and their lives with badges on and off.

“With being a cop in the workforce, especially being an African American cop, when we step out there, we always want to do the right thing,” Cory Hardrict told HipHollywood. “The crazy thing about this show is we have another life as well outside of the cop world where things aren’t so perfect.”

Cory, who is expecting a baby girl very soon with his wife, Tia Mowry, continued, “When the badge comes off and we have on regular civilian clothes, we get treated like every African American harassed person out here in the world.”

Although this is just a television show, the narrative is not exactly a far cry from reality, a reality Cory Hardrict and Kwame Patterson personally know all too well. “I had one incident where he [the officer] took his blade and went to the back seat cut the back seat and sliced it … but you can’t do anything.”

Patterson added, “I’m from Baltimore, so Baltimore is one of the most corrupt police cities in the United States. So I’ve definitely dealt with police brutality, discrimination … it’s always my word against theirs.”

The new show, produced by 50 Cent, is now streaming on Crackle.
