The bad news? We still must wait many weeks for the return of Scandal Season 3.

The good news? ABC is at least whetting our appetite for more Gladiator action by releasing a sneak peek at the February 27 return episode via Facebook.

It features Olivia sitting down with Mellie and wondering why the heck the First Lady requested a lunch date, as curious photographers snap shots of the enemies from the sidewalk.

Mellie says she wants to make a "respectable woman" out of her husband's lover, but call us crazy for thinking she has an ulterior motive.

Star Kerry Washington, meanwhile, celebrated a birthday last week.

ABC will air four fewer episodes of Scandal Season 3 than originally planned, and the speculation is that Kerry Washington's pregnancy is the reason.

The network on Friday didn't say why it will broadcast 18 instead of 22 episodes of the third season of the hit drama, but the writing is on the wall here.

The decision follows the news star Kerry Washington and her new husband, football player Nnamdi Asomugha are expecting their first child together.

Accommodating Washington is the only logical explanation for the early end to production of the current season of the series, one of ABC's most successful.

After next Thursday's episode, the 10th of the season, Scandal will take a break and then return in late February with the final episodes of Season 3.

There are still nine more installments of the show this season in all, and it will surely be back in the fall four a fourth full season, so all hope is not lost.

She's playing everyone's favorite President-loving political fixer on Scandal season 3 but Kerry Washington hosted Saturday Night Live and demonstrated that she can wear more than just a White Hat. 

Washington is the 9th Black woman to host the show in its entire 38 year run, and of the 137 actors to grace the stage as cast members, only 4 of them have been African-American.

Throughout the evening, Kerry helped SNL make fun of themselves for their recent diversity issues, chiefly by pointing out that there isn't really much diversity on the show at all.

They jumped right into their self-mockery with the cold open, featuring Kerry Washington as both Michelle Obama and Oprah.

Washington also took to song and dance with a spoof of "What Does The Fox Say?" alongside Jay Pharoah. Check out "What Does My Girl Say?" and two more videos from the night after the jump.

Saturday Night Live is about to get very scandalous, in more ways than one.

NBC has announced that Kerry Washington, who is currently starring as Olivia Pope on Scandal Season 3, will host the November 2nd edition of this sketch series.

Serving as the musical guest on this same installment? The Rap God himself, Eminem, who is under some fire at the moment for lyrics in his latest single that many see as being offensive to gays.

SNL has already aired three episodes this season, with Tina Fey opening as host and being followed by Miley Cyrus and Bruce Willis.

Edward Norton (and Janelle Monáe) are on tap for October 26th, while the following Saturday will mark Washington's first hosting gig and Eminem's sixth turn as SNL performer.

Gabrielle Union as Olivia Pope? It nearly happened.

The actress tells The Associated Press that she auditioned for the main role on ABC's Scandal, only to lose out to Kerry Washington, who has sky-rocketed to fame as a result of the series.

"It showed me that you don't have to settle," Union said of the lesson she learned from the failure. "Luckily, the success of her and the show bred more work. Just from the audition process, I knew that I couldn't go backward."

And with Scandal Season 3 on tap for September, we need to ask: Which of these actresses would you rather... see as Olivia Pope?

And the Winner is?
