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!

Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on ‘One Tree Hill’ After Divorce

Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on 'One Tree Hill' After Divorce

Sophia Bush may have just gotten married, but she’s reflecting on a past, high-profile relationship on the Drama Queens podcast.

Specifically, her marriage and divorce from One Tree Hill co-star, Chad Michael Murray. 

While chatting with her former co-stars, Bethany Joy Lenz and Hilarie Burton—who are all too familiar with what went down between Biush and Murray—the actress opened up about the hardships of having to work on set after the couple divorced in 2006. They got engaged in 2004 and married in 2005. 

In fact, Bush said it was even more difficult because their characters, Brooke Davis and Lucas Scott, started dating around the same time their relationship was hitting a rough patch that it would never bounce back from. 

“Not for nothing, you were going through a breakup with the person that you were playing a romance opposite of,” Joy Lenz said. 

“And regardless of what all those circumstances were, that’s incredibly difficult — emotionally to be able to be vulnerable and be there in that moment. There’s lots of actors who have done that — who’ve done movies and TV shows and things, they date their costar or whatever, it doesn’t work out. But the fact that you were able to just be that raw and open and vulnerable, it’s a real credit to you as an artist.  You put your art in front of everybody and just were like, ‘Look, this is it. I’m just sharing my heart and here we are’. I thought it was really beautiful,” she said. 

Bush gave a very mature answer, explaining that regardless of what was going on in her personal life, she prioritized the show and the character that resonated with so many young women.

“People can call it whatever they want. They can say it’s strength, they can say it’s pride, they can say its professionalism — you can put a positive or a negative skew on I, but I was always going to put Brooke Davis ahead of everybody and everything else. Nothing mattered to me but being honest for her,” she explained.

The actress, who recently wed Grant Hughes in a stunning and poignant Oklahoma wedding, previously refused to speak about her marriage to Murray as she didn’t want her career to be defined by a relationship. 

 “I refuse to let that one relationship define me, which is why I’ve done my best to avoid discussing it for 10 years,” she began, while acknowledging that it was a “massive event” in her life. 

She added: “The trauma of it was amplified by how public it became, which was incredibly foreign and bizarre to a girl who’d been just another college kid 24 months before her life blew up.”

 
Bush remained on OTH for the show’s full nine-season duration, which wrapped in 2012. Meanwhile, Murray exited the teen drama in season 6. He has since started a family with Crackle co-star Sarah Roemer. The duo married in 2015 and share two children.
