Transcript for Portia De Rossi Joins the Cast of 'Scandal'
Lara is take a little time off. Got news that pops. Yeah. So many of us are eagerly awaiting the brand-new season of ABC's "Scandal" this fall, my favorite show but there are some very exciting news that was revealed yesterday about what's ahead. Turns out that Portia de Rossi is joining season four. Wow. We're going to turn to the social square powered by Samsung galaxy to see how Portia's wife, Ellen DeGeneres broke the news on Twitter tweeting "So annoying when people brag on Twitter and that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on "Scandal." Oops. That got thousands of shares. "Scandal" premieres September 25th and I can't wait to see what's in store for Portia but for the show. It's like working here. You never know what's coming next. It's kind of modeled after this show except for they put it in the white house. A little bit. Gladiators unite. Exactly. And colin firth appeared to be regretting giving his phone number to Emma stone his co-star in "Magic in the moonlight" and in a joint interview with "The daily beast." Emma multi-tasked while watching "Bridget Jones the edge of reason." She was live texting Collin firth about everything his character did in the movies from facial expressions to messages she said were all complimentary but have you ever regretted giving someone your phone number? Hmm. Oh, yeah. Of course. So when you don't get a response -- What do you do? I've got a remedy. You put in the name do not answer and then when it comes up you know, oh, I'm not supposed to answer. Wow. So that's why you haven't answered any of my -- that's why I get no response from you. Thank you. It works. I will not be -- I will not be calling or texting you anymore. Don't worry. I won't be answering. Aha. The travesty of it all. Finally, Taylor swift is known for dealing with romantic problems by writing songs about them but recently stepped in to help a young fan in need of advice in the love department. Hannah asked swift a question about boys on instagram and replied unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind and that someday she'll meet someone who loves her in the exact same way. Now, needless to say Han fwha who called herself shesh betswift was blown away replying that swift feels like the big sister she's never had. Ah. Sweet. Yeah, that's very sweet. And Taylor is writing a song about it as we speak.
