As the cast of "Scandal" (shown atop) reported back to work for a table read of the season premiere episode, "It's Handled", they had lots to celebrate and talk about.  

In addition to guest actor Dan Bucatinsky landing an Emmy  nomination for his role as TV journalist James Novack (Cyrus Beene’s husband), lead actress Kerry Washington became the first African American woman to earn a best actress Emmy nomination in 18 years! And who could forget about her secret wedding to San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha! 

Though Kerry clearly had a lot on her plate, she did manage to break from the reading and speak to PEOPLE about her nuptials. 

"I don't talk about my personal life in the press, but I will say I'm really happy. I'm blessed in all areas of my life."

And thought she remained mum on the details about her wedding, at least PEOPLE was able to get a reaction out of Kerry.  When Entertainment Weekly asked her about the nuptials, she politely shut them down saying, "I thank you for your congratulations, and that is where that conversation will end." OUCH.

What Kerry was willing to talk about was her excitement over her recent Emmy nomination for Lead Actress in "Scandal" She told PEOPLE,

"I'm the luckiest broad in showbiz. I just feel really blessed and humbled and grateful for this nomination."

And when asked how she got the news about her nomination, Kerry was a bit more open with EW saying,

"I was getting on a plane to fly back to LA from northern California. I was at the airport, and it was that wonderful thing — you know how you’re always a little preoccupied at the airport? You’re trying to get the right food to take on the flight with you. I had my dog with me, and I had to walk her, and go through security. [Laughs] My hands were full, and it was really nice to be so distracted. And then my phone rang and I saw that it was my publicist/friend Michelle, and I was like, Oh, oh, yeah. Whoa. I wonder what she’s calling to say."

 And for fans eager to find out what's going to happen next season on "Scandal", Kerry revealed that she doesn't have a clue about what's coming up.    

I’m really excited to read the script. It’s totally cold reading, of course. So we’re all dying inside with anticipation. Just, like, who will be at the table read? Will Scott Foley [who was made a series regular] be at the table read, or will he not be at the table read because his character is in the hole for the whole first episode? Will Joe Morton be at the table read as my dad, or no? Where do we start? We have no clue. So that’s super exciting. And also for me, I’m just so excited that I get to see everybody and hug everybody and thank everybody today, because to me, this nomination is really a reflection of this cast, how we inspire each other and how we elevate each other.

And of course, everyone is wondering if she'll bring her new husband to the Emmys in September.  She coyly replied, "I have not decided who will be my date. That was my parents' question this morning! We'll see."

 

 

I love her!

But I'm sure the wedding wasn't private though. The media isn't in the need to know circle.
happy she shut them down. People, especially the media, continuously overstep their bounds. Not everything is everyone's business.

I don't see why she feels she needs to be so super secretive.  After all the wedding is over, so her giving some details isn't going to ruin what has past anyway.  I'm glad for her that shes happy...but what's the harm in releasing like one or two wedding photos? ijs
