Portia De Rossi Is Joining "Scandal" Season 4

She better buy a toolbox.

Posted on

De Rossi's wife, Ellen DeGeneres, was the first to tweet about her "top secret arc" on the ABC drama on Wednesday.

So annoying when people brag on twitter & that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on "Scandal". Oops.

While it's still unclear what role de Rossi will be stepping into or how many episodes she'll be in, the possibilities are endless: Perhaps Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), who we last saw flying out of town with Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), is bringing her in as a fixer to fix her crumbling fixer firm; perhaps she'll be joining Olivia Pope & Associates in Harrison's (Columbus Short) place; or perhaps she's working with Mama Pope (Khandi Alexander), building a tunnel to break her out of the "hole."

Anything is possible in Shondaland, and at least de Rossi already knows how to rock all white!
