Conscious Uncoupling? Kimye's Vogue Cover? Sounds Like Work for Scandal's Olivia Pope

Posted on

Alas, Scandal‘s season 3 finale is upon us. Soon there’ll be no more Liv and Fitz makeout sessions, heated walk-talks through White House corridors or oddly angled camera shots hoping to hide Kerry Washington‘s growing baby belly.

But the fun doesn’t have to stop there. We got a hold of some of Olivia Pope’s confidential case files (not really) that reveal she and her team stepped in to help some major celebrity clients recently. Talk about a fixer.

RESOLVED: This would have been a big messy War of the Roses-type split (picture Coldplay CDs and Goop goods flying everywhere) had Liv not flown in a guru friend to help smooth things over before press time.

RESOLVED: Liv caught wind that a photo of her and Fitz kissing was about to be published in a tabloid, so she called in a favor with pal Anna Wintour to put Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the cover just in time to capture the nation’s attention.

RESOLVED: With Jimmy Fallon as one of Liv’s clients, it was only a matter of time. The gladiators paid David Letterman a visit and gave him an ultimatum: either get braces or give up the desk.

RESOLVED: Prince Joffrey is actually a rogue member of B613. Jack Ballard handled that one himself, then hopped on a red-eye from Westeros back to Washington.

RESOLVED: Each and every baby’s face and profile was stuck up on the wall at Olivia Pope and Associates offices, where Abby picked the candidates apart – “Too many teeth,” “crawls too fast,” “drooler” – until they had vetted all attendees.
