Shonda Rhimes has television fans wrapped around her finger after 4 amazing seasons of Scandal, but it looks like there’s someone who isn’t a huge fan of her success.
According to TMZ, a writer named Debra Feldman is suing Shonda for allegedly stealing her manuscript idea and then using it for the show Off The Map.
The site reports:
Debra Feldman claims in her lawsuit … Rhimes got hold of her manuscript, “The Red Tattoo,” and used it as a template for her doomed series, “Off the Map” — about U.S. doctors working in a remote South American village.
Feldman says no one on Rhimes team knew squat about medical treatment on a third-world island, so she must have lifted it from “The Red Tattoo.”
A rep for Shonda told the site that they won’t comment on “frivolous claims.”
Well, that settles that… for now, at least.
Jada Pinkett Smith was forced to leave the set of her TV show Gotham, after a fire broke out.
Dressed in full costume, including her black and red wig, Jada quickly made her way to her vehicle and drove off in order to avoid any potential damage from the flames.
According to the Daily Mail, the crew had to shut down filming for the day as authorities and fire fighters worked to control the incident.
We’re glad Jada is safe and sound, and that no one was hurt!

A new cast member has just been added to the upcoming Fifty Shades Of Grey film and he’s actually married to director Sam-Taylor Johnson!
23-year-old Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who you might recognize from the Kick Ass series, revealed during the Godzilla premiere that he will be part of the highly-anticipated film.
His wife broke the news to Access Hollywood on the red carpet saying that he’ll be part of the movie, but no word on what role he will have.
Aaron commented on not playing Christian Grey:
“I think it would have been the wrong kind of hype to bring towards us. It would have been kind of funny that this character that all these women fancy – he’s one in a million – and my wife picks her husband to play the part?”
Do you guys think he will be a good fit for the movie?
Barbara Walters is about to step down from her spot on The View, and to honor her legacy, she made a surprise appearance on SNL last night!
Showing up for the “Weekend Update” segment of the show, Walters reflected back on various cast members impersonating her through the years.
She then went back and forth with host Cecily Strong by saying:
“I’m not like some fake anchor [like you]”
“But you’re a co-host on The View.”
Walters even gave some advice for being a great journalist:
“The real money is in making them cry.”
We’ll miss you Barbara!
