Scandal is returning and I don't know about you, but all I can think about is that mean Papa Pope (Joe Morton)! The show left off with him breaking into Olivia's (Kerry Washington) home with a gun only for her to take his gun to turn it on him and pull the trigger...sadly it wasn't loaded. The big cliff hanger is that Olivia gets kidnapped, and if I had to guess her father is probably behind it. Why would I guess that you may ask? Well Rowan Pope is the scariest villain on TV and it just fits his MO. If you don't believe me here are 7 reasons why he has every other villain beat.
1. He's unpredictable.
2. He wields a lot of power and he knows it.
3. Even if you are very smart and successful he knows what to say to make your feel stupid and incompetent.
4. He would lock you away and throw away the key, only to make your relatives think you are dead. He's done this several times!
5. When he did this to Huck, it drove him crazy and made him forget his family.
6. He will kill anyone in his daughter's life if it helps him get what he wants.
7. He strikes fear into everyone, especially his daughter.
Only time will tell if "kidnapping his own daughter" should be added to the list. Do you think Rowan is the scariest villain? Tweet us your answers using the Twitter handles below!
Sofia Vergara's wedding to Joe Manganiello will be a massive affair because they have failed to whittle down their guest list.
The Modern Family star recently became engaged to the Magic Mike hunk and she showed off her new diamond ring during an appearance at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (25Jan15). Now she has opened up about the couple's wedding plans, telling Etonline.com, "I think we are going to try to do it sooner (rather) than later... It's going to be a lot of people. It has to be a lot of people. We sat down and tried, 'Okay, let's see if we can do like 20 and 20,' and it was like impossible..."
When asked whether they plan to start a family together, Vergara, who has a grown-up son from a previous relationship, adds, "Well I'm 42 and he's younger than me and he hasn't had a kid so of course, if we can do it, why not... But we have to leave it to God to see it if happens."
Stars will guzzle 160 magnums of Champagne Taittinger Brut La Francaise at the Screen Actors Guild Awards dinner on Sunday (25Jan15), while chef Wolfgang Puck will serve up an antipasto plate featuring a kale salad with dried cherries, candied pecans, goat cheese and vinaigrette and grilled salmon, and a "vegan alternative plate" including a persimmon salad with spiced pumpkin seeds, mache and maple vinaigrette.

Actress Keshia Knight Pulliam has opened up about Bill Cosby's sex assault scandal, insisting the man at the centre of the drama is not the one who played her dad on TV. The 35 year old starred alongside the embattled comedian, who has been accused of sexual abuse and inappropriate behaviour in decades-old incidents by more than 20 women, on The Cosby Show from 1984 to 1992, and she has been left confused by the attacks on the funnyman.
Pulliam tells America's Today show she can only make judgements based on "the man that she knows".
She says, "I wasn't there, no one was there except for the two people to know exactly what happened (sic). All I can speak to is the man that I know and I love. The fact that he has been such an example and you can't take away from the great things he has done, the millions and millions of dollars he has given back to colleges and education and just what he did with The Cosby Show and how groundbreaking that was...
"Ultimately, they're just that, allegations, and it's very much been played out in the court of public opinion, but we're still in America, where ultimately you're innocent until proven guilty and I wasn't there. That's just not the man I know, so I can't speak to it."
On Sunday (04Jan15), Pulliam was eliminated from Donald Trump's reality competition show Celebrity Apprentice, in part, because she refused to reach out to Cosby for donations to her charity cause on the programme.
The Apprentice episode was filmed in March (14) - before any of the current and ongoing allegations against Cosby had emerged - and Pulliam explains she did not call her former TV dad because she hasn't spoken to him in several years.
She explains, "Everyone assumes we're in this family that has dinner every Friday night, but the reality was, I hadn't spoken to Mr. Cosby and I felt that it would be tactless, you know, very rude to call somebody and be like, 'Hey, let me have some money right now'. And honestly, with the other cheques that I had lined up, I didn't feel that I needed to make that phone call."
Actress Sofia Vergara is engaged to Magic Mike hunk Joe Manganiello after a whirlwind romance, according to reports.
The Modern Family star went public with her romance with Manganiello in July (14), just weeks after splitting from her former fiance, Nick Loeb, in late May (14). Now reports suggest the Colombian beauty is preparing to walk down the aisle once more after the actor popped the question over the Christmas holidays.
In images obtained by the DailyMail.co.uk, Vergara was photographed wearing what appeared to be a large diamond engagement ring on her left ring finger on Christmas Eve (24Dec14), while vacationing with her beau in Hawaii.
The couple had double the reason to celebrate on Sunday (28Dec14) as Manganiello turned 38.
Representatives for the stars had yet to respond to requests for a comment as WENN went to press.
If the reports are true, this will be the first marriage for the True Blood actor. Vergara was previously wed to childhood sweetheart Joe Gonzalez, the father of her 22-year-old son Manolo.
Acclaimed drama Boyhood scored four awards including the Best Picture prize from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LACFA) on Sunday (07Dec14). The coming-of-age film was the clear favourite from the California critics group, earning not only the top prize, but Best Director for filmmaker Richard Linklater, Best Actress for Patricia Arquette and Best Editing.
The multiple wins came the same day Boyhood scooped Best Picture from the Boston Society of Film Critics and the New York Film Critics Online organisations, as well as the Best International Independent Film at the British Independent Film Awards in London, where Linklater was on hand to receive the accolade.
Tying for two awards apiece was Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, which won Best Screenplay and Best Production Design, and Polish film Ida, which nabbed Best Foreign Language Film and Best Supporting Actress for its star Agata Kulesza.
Tom Hardy was honoured for his role in British drama Locke with the Best Actor trophy, while J.K. Simmons earned Best Supporting Actor for Whiplash.
Radiohead rocker Jonny Greenwood was recognised for his third musical collaboration with director Paul Thomas Anderson for his film Inherent Vice, tying for the Best Music Score with Mica Levi (Under the Skin), while Birdman, which is a top Oscar contender, took home the award for Best Cinematography.
Meanwhile, Best Animation went to Japan's Tale of the Princess Kaguya, and Citizenfour, which chronicles infamous U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden, landed the Best Documentary award.
Winners will formally receive their prizes during the LAFCA awards dinner in Los Angeles, when veteran actress Gena Rowlands and American film critic Leonard Maltin will receive special lifetime achievement honours.
Solange Knowles' wedding day skin rash was cured by her famous sister Beyonce. The Losing You singer tied the knot with longtime boyfriend Alan Ferguson in New Orleans, Louisiana on Sunday (16Nov14), but she was photographed with what appeared to be welts on her face in the middle of her big day.
Solange later joked about her health scare with a post on Twitter.com, which read, "Shout out to Benadryl yo, LOL (laugh out loud). Nothing was gonna stop me..."
Now the bride's mother has spoken out to reveal R&B star Beyonce was the saviour of the day when she took her sister to a hotel room and handed her medication for the rash.
Tina Knowles tells Entertainment Tonight, "(Solange) went through the wedding and the sit down dinner and she was just fine. But then they had a second line (parade) in the streets of New Orleans and she was just dancing so hard. I think she just got overheated and the seafood, she had a reaction to it, so her face broke out into these welts.
"But Beyonce took her back to the hotel and gave her Benadryl - in two hours she showed up at the reception and danced with her son and danced all night. We had a ball."
Tina also revealed that despite the photos featuring Solange standing in her wedding gown alongside her female friends, Tina, and Beyonce, all wearing white, the photo was a "family portrait" because the bride opted not to have any bridesmaids.
The highlight for Tina was when she watched her daughter and new son-in-law recite their vows, saying, "They were the most beautiful thing. There wasn't a dry eye in the place."
Former model-turned-TV personality Janice Dickinson has become the fourth woman to accuse comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault.
In an exclusive new interview with U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, Dickinson details an alleged encounter with Cosby in 1982, when he offered to help her with a planned singing career after she left rehab. She recalls she was holidaying in Bali when Cosby invited her to Lake Tahoe, California, where he was performing, so they could discuss her career and a possible role on his hit comedy The Cosby Show.
The former catwalk star claims he offered her red wine and a pill when she complained of stomach pains over dinner.
She recalls, "The next morning I woke up, and I wasn't wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man. Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs."
Dickinson reveals she wrote about the assault in the first draft of her 2002 autobiography No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel, but claims Cosby and his lawyers pressured publishers at HarperCollins to remove the details.
She tells ET, "I'm doing this because it's the right thing to do, and it happened to me, and this is the true story. I believe all the other women... I didn't have counsel and I was afraid of the consequences. I was afraid of being labeled a whore or a slut and trying to sleep my way to the top of a career that never took place." Dickinson admits she has never confronted Cosby over the alleged incident, but she wouldn't hold back if she met him again today.
She rages, "(I'd say) 'How dare you. Go f**k yourself. How dare you take advantage of me. And I hope you rot'."
The ex-model is the third woman to come forward with a sexual assault accusation against Cosby after comedian Hannibal Buress called the veteran entertainer a "rapist" during a stand-up show in October (14).
Publicist Joan Tarshis came forward with her own allegations against the comic on Monday (17Nov14), claiming he assaulted her on two occasions in 1969 after she drank a vodka and beer cocktail, which Cosby called a redeye. Like Dickinson, she claims she was unconscious during the alleged assault.
Another reported victim, Barbara Bowman, wrote a piece for the Washington Post earlier this month detailing her alleged assault at the hands of Cosby in 1985, when she was 17. She wrote, "In one case, I blacked out after having dinner and one glass of wine at his New York City brownstone, where he had offered to mentor me and discuss the entertainment industry. When I came to, I was in my panties and a man's T-shirt, and Cosby was looming over me. I’m certain now that he drugged and raped me. But as a teenager, I tried to convince myself I had imagined it."
Bowman was one of 13 women asked to testify against the comedian when a woman named Andrea Constand filed a suit against Cosby in 2004. The case was eventually settled out of court.
Cosby has refused to comment on the latest allegations, but his lawyer, John P. Schmitt, issued a statement on Sunday (16Nov14), which read: "Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment."
Cosby has never been charged with sexual assault.
