Ellen TV: White House Vs Olivia Pope & Associates
Ellen DeGeneres had Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Scott Foley, Bellamy Young, Jeff Perry, Guillermo Diaz, Katie Lowes, Darby Stanchfield, and Joshua Malina on her show to talk about the new season of Scandal and while she had them all there, she wanted to play a game.
The game was called the Scandal Secret Showdown and the cast was divided between the white house and Olivia Pope and associates. Before the show, each cast member was asked to share a secret that their fellow cast members wouldn’t know. One person from each team was to come up, Ellen would read the secret, and then the first person to buzz in and guess right wins. If they get it wrong, the other team gets a chance to steal.
Ellen: Surprise For Ellen!
Kerry then announced that she’s not good at keeping secrets, so she wanted to confess her secret right away. She then ran off set and came back with Portia by her side. Surprise! Even Ellen didn’t know that was going to happen! It was so cute to see Ellen in shock saying “how did that happen? Hi baby!” Kerry explained that Ellen is always the one surprising everyone, so this time they wanted to surprise her.
Ellen said she was so confused as to why Portia suddenly stopped texting her after they had been texting all day, and that’s why! Portia then joined the White House team, evening out the teams.
Ellen then brought up the first players, Tony Goldwyn and Kerry Washington. Ellen then said, “hands behind your black” when she meant to say “hands behind your back.” Kerry joked that she already had one-up on Tony and Ellen said she’s so excited that Portia’s there that she couldn’t talk.
Ellen: Darby Stanchfield & Tony Goldwyn Secrets
The first secret was, “I spend every day worried that I’m going to get arrested.” Kerry buzzed in first and said Guillermo, but then Tony tried to steal and said Guillermo again. Guillermo threw his hands up as if to say, “Why me?” The correct answer was Darby, and Tony said she was the least likely person in America to get arrested.
Next was Bellamy Young and Guillermo Diaz. Ellen said, “when I was 5 years old, I almost set my house on fire.” Guillermo said Portia, but that was wrong. Bellamy then guessed Katie, which was also wrong. The answer was Tony!

Next up was Jeff Perry and Katie Lowes. Ellen said, “I learned to ride a bike only two years ago.” Jeff said Kerry, which was wrong, and then Katie correctly said Bellamy.
Ellen then had Scott Foley and Joshua Malina up against each other. She said, “I sleep with a stuffed animal every night.” Scott said Guillermo, which was correct!

Ellen then had Portia up against Darby and said, “I was once arrested three times in one day.” Darby said Jeff Perry, which was wrong. Portia then said Josh, which was also wrong. The correct answer was Scott Foley, which Darby guessed correctly. Scott explained that he was arrested for multiple traffic offenses.
Ellen then surprised everyone in the audience with the first three seasons of Scandal on DVD.
Ellen then invited the entire cast to come back to her show again, saying she could do it every day. Ellen then said she was going to give each person an object and the first person to get their object clearly on air in a scene of the show, will get $5,000 to give to a charity of their choice.
Tony got a giant chess piece, Josh got a scuba mask, Kerry got a piggy bank, Scott got a shake-weight, Jeff got a big gold bell, Katie got a white garden gnome, Bellamy got a giant calculator, Guillermo got Ellen’s book, Portia (who she called baby) got a very old cellphone, and Darby got a maraca.
I’ll be on the lookout for each of those items!
