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.”

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
