Personal Quote:

It's superinsulting that because Olivia [in Scandal (2012)] is a woman, and the girl who wrote Grey's Anatomy (2005) wrote this, it must be for chicks. Like if it's geared for women, it's somehow not as serious as if it's geared for men. See more »

Trivia:

On the first day in September 2001 that she moved into a rental house in Vermont as a quiet place to finish a movie script, the World Trade Center was attacked, which prompted Rhimes to reassess her future and her goals. She decided her top priority was to adopt a child and nine months later she did, with daughter Harper, and became a single mother. Emerson followed in 2012. See more »
