Earlier today, shocking video emerged showing Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams making anti-gay comments at an Atlanta area church in 2010:

Porsha's RHOA co-star Cynthia Bailey has spoken out against Porsha's comments in a statement issued to TMZ.

"To put gays and lesbians in the same category as drug dealers, hookers, and people who attempt suicide is ignorant and insensitive," said Bailey. "Especially when she just profited from performing at a popular gay club. #flipflop"

Yes, Cynthia's statement apparently included a hashtag.

Joining Cynthia in her criticism is the frequent RHOA guest star known as Miss Lawrence, himself a gay man living in in Atlanta.

That cliffhanger ending to Scandal Season 3 where Rowan Pope had Harrison Wright trapped in the Smithsonian with a double agent? Yeah, that was goodbye to Harrison. 

Columbus Short is leaving Scandal Season 4, the actor confirmed on 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," Short said in his statement to Us Weekly.

Columbus Short's statement thanked not only Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes but also the Gladiators who championed the series to make it the phenomenon it is.

"I would like to first thank [creator] Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast," he said, continuing, "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."

Scandal, known for its fast-paced, wicked-sharp dialogue, crazy good fashion, and jaw-dropping drama, comes across as having quite the polished and professional cast of actors. (Well, aside from that whole Columbus Short arrest thing maybe...)

But that doesn't mean they're always perfect on the first take. And this Scandal blooper reel from Jimmy Kimmel's "Behind the Scandalabra" bit pretty hilariously proves it.

Harrison dances, Mellie has a potty mouth, and then there's Olivia Pope tying penises together. (Andre Johnson's johnson what??)

Oh, and you ABSOLUTELY must see what Huck and Quinn did with a Shake Weight.

Pour yourself a glass (or bottle) of pinot and pop some popcorn and then get ready to laugh with Scandal.

In case you want more, you can watch Scandal online at TV Fanatic to see how beautifully these outtakes were turned into their dramatic realities.

We only thought Cyrus Beene was the worst monster on Scandal, y'all! Rowan Pope just showed us how it's done! 

Scandal Season 3 Episode 18 might have put an early end to the season, but it was definitely a finale that left us counting down the days until October.

With a blown up church, a murderous and manipulative father, a double crossing agent, and plenty of setup for what's to come, you're going to want to watch Scandal online to see it all for yourself.

Or just read the THG recap below.

When last we saw Cyrus Beene he was sauntering merrily down a White House hallway, content with the knowledge that by letting the church blow up he was solidifying Fitz's reelection. 

It's hard to lose when there is no opponent.

But as he listened to Fitz's eulogy for the dead senator, he realized the error of his ways and decided to come clean. Too little too late.

The church blew up and Sally, coached by Leo Bergen, rode to the rescue, looking like Mother Teresa and soaring in the polls.

Scandal season 3 might have gotten a shortened order because of Kerry Washington's pregnancy, but as it turns out, that's been a very, very good thing. It's forced the show to step up its game in the storytelling department and things are getting absolutely insane over there in the fake D.C.

Last night's episode, Scandal Season 3 Episode 17, saw Oliva Pope and her team racing against the clock to find a group of terrorists before they detonate a bomb which will blow up the President. To find the terrorists, they need to find Maya Pope.

But Maya Pope, because she's the wiliest villain in primetime right now, got to them first. The results were potentially deadly.

The night began with Jake confronting Olivia about the dismantling of B613. President Grant appeared and wanted to know what the plan was to fix things, telling Olivia she'd made a huge mistake. Despite the fact that Fitz sided with Jake in the Olivia-screwed-up argument, Jake decided to go ahead and reveal to the President just how she managed to take down the super secret super spy society.

By sleeping with Jake, of course.

We're down to the final two episodes in Scandal Season 3 after last night's installment saw Olivia Pope unknowingly allow her mother, Maya Pope, to get away from B-613.

How did she do that, you ask? By shutting down B-613 right as they were in the middle of a mission.

Scandal Season 3 Episode 16 started off with Abby in the White House as Olivia's proxy. After last week's realization that she's "the help," Olivia needed a break from Fitz. That break was, however, short lived as Fitz threw a tantrum and demanded to see Olivia

Olivia declined his request until she learned that Jeanine Locke, the woman with whom Fitz did not have an affair, wrote a tell-all memoir about her scandalous relationship with the President.

And that wasn't even a major facet of last night's episode.

There was a surprise surgery for someone's birthday... a dead supporting character... and some seriously hot sex.

Just an ordinary night of Thursday television this week? Not exactly. We rundown the highlights below and make it easy for readers to watch TV online in order to catch up.

------------------------------------------------------

It was Richard Webber's birthday on GREY'S ANATOMY and Bailey gifted him with an unusual surgery. A really, really unusual surgery.

Elsewhere, Jackson and April got an unexpected, unpleasant surprise from the former's mother. Watch Grey's Anatomy online to find out what she wanted:

Staying on ABC, SCANDAL had one question to answer on the appropriately-titled "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang."

Scandal Season 3 Episode 13 picked up after we saw Harrison and Abby save David Rosen's life in the last installment, with the Daniel Douglas scandal still a focal point.

Needless to say, Olivia faced a difficult moral predicament upon learning the truth about Daniel's murder. Would she stand by the administration or do the right thing?

Meanwhile, Cyrus had no such crisis of conscience. Taking matters into his own hands the way Cyrus does, he told Jake he needed to take Sally Langston out.

The big debate hit a snag as it appeared Sally was losing it, but where did that leave the gears that make the Grant administration turn behind the scenes?

Olivia decided the only way to get her to cool it was for Fitz would have to throw the debate a bit, making for one of many twists in Scandal Season 3 Episode 13.

Sally has become a problem of unpredictable and significant proportions, so Jake came around to Cyrus' view. Meanwhile, Cyrus also learned that James was Publius.

As for those shocking last 30 seconds? We can't do them justice here.
