In one of those “First Ladies, Their Just Like Us” moments, Michelle told Ryan Seacrest that she binge-watches Scandal.
It started on the long fight to Hawaii over the holidays. She caught up on all the episodes and fell in love with the ABC hit. “I love Kerry Washington. She is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”
It’s about time she got hooked, as two of her friends are integral to the project. The show creator Shonda Rhimes was appointed back in the fall to work alongside the first lady on the board of trustees for the Kennedy Center.
Also, last May Michelle attended a song and dance performance at Savoy Elementary School in Washington, D.C. with Kerry Washington.
Kerry “adopted” the school as part of the Turnaround Arts initiative of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.
At the time Michelle, said of Kerry: “The fact that she is flying all over the country, but she comes to spend time with you guys and she does it for real … it shows more her love for all of you. So, Kerry, love you, girl. Keep it going. Very proud of you.”
