I grew up on reruns of The Golden Girls, The Facts of Life, Keeping Up Appearances, Laverne & Shirley, I Love Lucy and Designing Women. I've been addicted to television ever since.

My newer televisual obsessions include: Cougar Town, The Good Wife, Veep, Archer, Arrested Development, Orange is the New Black, Mindy Project, Girls, AbFab, Miranda, 30 Rock, True Blood, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, AHS, The Office, Supernatural and of course The Real Housewives.

Portugal are my favorite football team. Ronaldo, Veloso, Moutinho, Meireles are my favorite footballers.

My dream: creating my own series.
Or publishing a book.

I'm fluent in French, Portuguese, Spanish. Graduated from Cal, and starting a UCLA program.

 

The Unholy Trinity.

This scene—where Fitz, Olivia, and Mellie are conspiring what they will tell America—was exquisite dramatic television history. It reminds us that the man in the most powerful position in the US can not divorce his wife for the woman he truly loves—Scandal’s underlying love story: Fitz Grant and Olivia Pope. Power is power, but love is more powerful. Then there is the story of the First Lady’s attempt to gain power.

While plenty of her motives may seem for the gain of her political career, it is a hollow power she aims to grasp. Or symbolic at best. Earlier I mentioned Mellie Grant as a modern day, televisual portrayal of Lady Macbeth. And in this meeting, she further proves that.  What she’s really doing is constantly saving/protecting the president. She is willing to reduce the truth of her humiliation to an affair of two sexual encounters. At the same time, she doesn’t want to be manipulated by Fitz and Olivia’s love story. With or without them, whatever Mellie decides to do next will make for pure entertaining television. Perhaps it will earn an Emmy nom for Bellamy? At the very least a Golden Globe.
