Raising the roof, indeed! Former First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager revealed secrets from her years in the White House, and how she feels President Obama's daughters are handling the spotlight. Hager, 33, appeared on the Wednesday, Dec. 3 episode of Watch What Happens Live, when one caller asked for her thoughts on Sasha and Malia Obama after they were called out for their demeanor at the National Thanksgiving Turkey pardoning last week.

One hot—and inspirational—mama! Since giving birth to her daughter, Charlotte, on Sept. 26, Chelsea Clinton has been at home getting to know her little lady.

Trucco has landed the part of Charles Putney on Scandal, who beat Abby (Darby Stanchfield) when they were still married years prior, breaking her jaw and a number of ribs, reported Entertainment Weekly. Olivia (Kerry Washington) ultimately took matters into her own hands and attacked him with a tire iron.
As of yet, it hasn’t been revealed exactly what brings Charles to Washington.
Trucco is likely best known for starring as Ensign Samuel Anders on Battlestar Galactica and Justin Patrick in Fairly Legal. He’s also had recurring roles on One Tree Hill, Castle, Young Justice, How I Met Your Mother, Revenge and Criminal Minds. His last starring TV role was in the short-lived Killer Women.
Important question for Scandal watchers: is there anyone who still wants Fitz and Olivia together, besides Fitz? We know it's all he has left, as he has failed "as a father, as a husband, and as a man" (in his words -- but don't forget "as a President," too). But is Fitz still defensible, or even likable, in any way? When the two of them were alone together for the first time this season in the Oval Office, and "The Light" started to play, was anyone desperate for a rekindling? Or instead, were we desperate to get to any other part of "Like Father, Like Daughter"? Hit the jump if "we can do this later, I'm really wasted." There were three main components to "Like Father, Like Daughter," starting with First Daughter Karen's "dirtiest sex tape I have ever seen" (according to Liv). After Karen gave her Secret Service detail »

Olivia Pope came back to the White House to help the first daughter bury a sex tape, while Jake lost a battle with Command on Scandal’s “Like Father, Like Daughter.”
Jake (Scott Foley) is late for a dinner date with Olivia (Kerry Washington) after narrowly escaping a car bomb planted by Command (aka Rowan), who is now trying to kill him. Liv, trying to create a relationship with Jake, orders take-out for the strange pair, but their dinner is cut short when Liv gets an urgent phone call from Karen Grant, the President’s daughter.
Liv and Quinn (Katie Lowes) manage to get Karen (Mary Mouser) out of the rave party she’s passed out at without any eager attendees getting a photograph or recording a video on their cell phones, and, just as Karen thinks she got out without incident, she gets video text. »
That, folks, was Season 2 Scandal levels of scandalaciousness.
I said here last week that the show seemed to be building momentum, to be about “something” as it is during its most entertaining, can’t-look-away times. And this week’s episode, which featured a provocative First Family drama, reignited the “Olitz” spark, gave us a Full Throttle Olivia Pope and, for good measure, dropped a humdinger of a final twist, was operating at high velocity.
Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. Four years ago, Michael Keaton made a memorable appearance in the comedy The Other Guys, playing a police captain who also works at Bed, Bath and Beyond and unintentionally quotes TLC all the time. Between that and a vocal role in Toy Story 3, it appeared he was making a comeback. Well, maybe he can try again with the acclaimed new meta drama Birdman, in which he plays an actor making a comeback of his own. Keaton is in need of a comeback after many years of such uncool gigs as playing Dad to Lindsay Lohan in Herbie: Fully Loaded and to Katie Holmes in First Daughter (in which he's also the president, at least). This is a guy who went from Batman to snowman in...

Scandal‘s Season 4 premiere had a lot to accomplish — revealing where Olivia vanished to, giving her a compelling reason to return home, presenting a D.C. that’s different (yet familiar enough) to the one she left, and then convincing not just us and Jake but Olivia herself why she needed to stay for not “a couple of days,” but Gladiate once again.
