Kerry Washington: Award-winning Actor, Producer And Activist Calls Out Shaq For Sliding in Her DMs

by Gee NY

Kerry Washington raised eyebrows when she made a shocking revelation about NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal during the promotional tour for her new book “Thicker Than Water”.

She was a guest on Thursday, Sept. 28’s episode of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” when host, Andy Cohen, asked her, “Who’s the most famous person to slide into your DMs, wanting to connect as a friend or otherwise?”

“Um, Shaq, Shaquille O’Neal,” she replied to Cohen’s surprise.

In “Thicker Than Water”, which was released Tuesday, Sept. 26, the award-winning actor, director, producer, and activist shares the deeply moving journey of her life so far, and the bravely intimate story of discovering her truth.

Washington also gives readers an intimate view into both her public and private worlds—as an artist, an advocate, an entrepreneur, a mother, a daughter, a wife, and a Black woman.

Chronicling her upbringing and life’s journey thus far, she reveals how she faced a series of challenges and setbacks, effectively hid childhood traumas, met extraordinary mentors, managed to grow her career and crossed the threshold into stardom and political advocacy, ultimately discovering her truest self and with it a deeper sense of belonging.

Kerry Washington is famous for her roles in “Scandal”, “Ray”, the Tim Story “Fantastic Four” film series, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, “Confirmation”, “Django Unchained”, “Little Fires Everywhere”, “Cars 3” and “The Last King of Scotland”.
During her six-year stint in Shonda Rhimes’ political thriller, for which she picked up multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nods, Washington also joined Craig Robinson in the comedy “Peeples”, and earned critical acclaim for her portrayal of Anita Hill, the lawyer who alleged she’d been sexually harassed by U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, in TV movie “Confirmation”.

Following the show’s natural end, Washington also played George’s nemesis Helen in the one-off revival “Norman Lear’s All in the Family and The Jeffersons”.
