Columbus Short fired from Scandal

BREAKING NEWS:

Goodbye Harrison! Columbus Short has been fired from ‘Scandal‘ following his recent legal troubles! The 31-year-old actor will not be returning for season 4 of the popular ABC drama as his character was not picked up.

 

The actor released this statement late Friday:

“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas. I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful.”


The announcement isn’t really a shocker to fans though as Short has been in a lot of legal trouble lately. His real life scandal was just too much for the scandalous Shonda Rhimes. Even in the season three finale, his character, Harrison fate was left up in the air after Olivia Pope’s father held him at gunpoint. Well,  it’s no secret now since Harrison just got axed from the show!

Short currently has two criminal cases against him pending. One accuses him of misdemeanor spousal battery. According to his wife, Tuere Short, the actor choked her and threatened to kill them both, before slashing her tires. This happened on two separate accounts which forced Mrs. Short to get a restraining order. She also filed for divorce which would end the couples nine year long marriage and for custody of their 2-year-old daughter. The case is due back in court May 13.

The second misdemeanor is felony battery that left a man seriously injured after a bar fight in West Hollywood.

If convicted, Short faces up to four years in state prison.

What do you think Gladiators? Are you upset that Harrison got killed off the show? Do you think he deserves it or should work never mess with ones personal life? Sound-off below!

Brian Tee’s ‘Chicago Med’ Exit Explained

Brian Tee's 'Chicago Med' Exit Explained

We’re just a few weeks away from Brian Tee’s final Chicago Med episode. 

The actor will depart the series on the Dec 7 episode, which will also feature his wedding to longtime love and fiancee, April (Yaya DaCosta).

People exclusively revealed photos from the couple’s big day, and now, we’re getting some more insight as to how Ethan Choi will be written off. 

Co-showrunner Andrew Schneider explained that after the wedding, Ethan and April will start a “mobile clinic so that together they can take first-rate medical care to underserved neighborhoods in Chicago.”

We absolutely love this idea as it stays true to his character, and it falls in line with April’s professional aspirations.

Schneider emphasized that the couple will be staying in the Windy City despite leaving Gaffney, which means that there is a chance for both Tee and DaCosta to return for a guest appearance in the near future if they choose. Tee has already been announced as a director of the upcoming 16th episode.

In the previous episode, Choi’s co-workers at the hospital were all surprised to get an invitation to the wedding considering the couple was broken up for quite some time. And while it may seem abrupt and haste, Choi told Charles that losing his father put a lot of things in perspective for him, and he’s finally ready to be the man that April always knew he could be. 

We can’t wait to see their beautiful wedding pan out on the fall finale of Chicago Med!

In the new season, Joe has created a new life for himself in London, where he’s naturally become obsessed with yet another beautiful woman, an art gallery director named Kate (played by Charlotte Ritchie). And yes, he’s still pursuing his quest of finding Marienne (Tati Gabrielle).

And from experience, expect things to get very, very, very complicated. 

See you Feb 9!
