Shonda Rhimes Corrects GMA's Report That 'Scandal' Is Entering Final Season!

Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer made such a huge goof this morning on the morning show, it made Shonda Rhimes spit out her morning coffee!

While showing a photo of the Scandal cast returning to work on social media, Lara said, “A little bittersweet however, because it has been said that this is also going to be the final season.”

Luckily, Shonda quickly responded on Twitter saying that is not true!

“Whoa, @GMA: I never said this was the final season of #scandal. Way to make me spit out my coffee!,” Shonda wrote.

Lara quickly responded on air, saying, “We said that this was the last season of Scandal. Shonda has weighed in, she just tweeted, and she said we made her spit out her coffee. My apologies. She said she has an ending in mind, but that ending is not happening this next season. So, thank you, Shonda…. We can all breathe, because as you guys know, it is my absolute favorite show. So correction: Ending in mind, but when that ending is happening we don’t know. So, to be continued on the Scandal scandal. More Scandal. So Shonda, thank you, I’m sorry I made you spit out your coffee.”

“Thank you for the correction, @LaraSpencer — you have my back!❤️” Shonda added after.

Shonda Rhimes Perfectly Responds to Petition to Get Jesse Williams Fired From 'Grey's Anatomy'

Shonda Rhimes is responding to that ridiculous petition to get Jesse Williams fired from Grey’s Anatomy over his 2016 BET Awards speech.

The petition urged for Jesse to be fired for his “racist, hate speech against law enforcement and white people at the BET awards.” The petition has almost 7,000 signatures at the time of publication.

“Do not promote empty people & their tantrums. Pure clickbait to gain followers, attention & money, for themselves, not you. Never you,” Jesse wrote on Twitter this past weekend, seemingly in response to the petition.

Shonda got wind of the petition, and tweeted, “Um, people? Boo don’t need a petition. #shondalandrules.”

Shonda Rhimes Addresses Sara Ramirez's Exit from 'Grey's Anatomy'

Shonda Rhimes is opening up about actress Sara Ramirez‘s exit from the hit drama Grey’s Anatomy after ten years as a series regular.

The series creator and showrunner said that she found out about Sara‘s departure only three days before it was announced and it was not planned into the storyline.

“This one was different because it wasn’t a big planned thing,” Shonda said at the Vulture Festival (via Us Weekly). “I had a different plan going and when Sara came in and said, ‘I really need to take this break,’ I was lucky that we’d shot the end of the season with her going to New York.”

“I felt really good that we had shot that ending and that she said she wanted to take this break and we were able to give it to her because I love the woman and I want to do everything for her. It all worked out in that sense,” she added.
