I just Watched That Scandal Sneak Peek, With Olivia and Mellie...
And if Olivia’s next words to Mellie aren’t:
"I understand that you’re hurt and bitter because after twenty years of marriage, your identity, your entire life is tied to a man who’s been trying to throw you away for the last four. I get it, and I’m sorry for you, because it must be hard knowing that your husband is in love with someone else. I sympathize, I truly do, but let’s get one thing straight, I know that you asked me, nay begged me, to run Fitz’s re-election campaign because without me, Fitz will lose this race, and you and I know that if that happens, Fitz will be at my door, luggage in tow before the final tally is announced.
So if you want to keep planting rose gardens, and giving speeches about the importance of wearing the right pearls, and if you want to have half a chance of keeping your husband for a little longer, you will stop trying to throw your self-generated misery on me. I am way too busy to deal with your jealousy and your mind games. The reason that you still have a marriage to growl about is due to me, so rather than blaming me for the dissolution of a marriage that was dead when I arrived, a marriage that I resurrected from the dead and helped put on life support, you need to be getting on your knees everyday and thanking me for letting you keep your husband. Are we clear?”
I shall be royally pissed, because no way would Olivia stay quiet in the face of such disrespect, affair or no fucking affair. Bitch you begged the woman that your husband is in love with to come help your him win re-election because you know that he gave nary a fuck about winning without her, so get under the desk, be grateful, and only speak when you’re spoken to. In other words, bow the fuck down bitch because your right to take your misery out on Olivia Pope has been permanently revoked.
