Scandal Star Kerry Washington speaks on her Secret Wedding to Nigerian-American NFL Player in Glamour Magazine



Kerry Washington covers Glamour Magazine - September 2013 - BellaNaija - 01

Kerry never ever looks wrong in my eyes.

Scandal star Kerry Washington covers the October 2013 issue of Glamour Magazine US.

The American movie star who secretly tied the knot with Nigerian-American NFL Player Nnamdi Asomugha in June 2013 sizzles on the cover in a Christian Dior orange dress.

Her cover look was finished with neutral lipstick, chic dark locks and a Van Cleef & Arpels diamond ring.

Read Excerpts from her interview;
On being tight lipped about her relationships
I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life. I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine [InStyle Weddings, in 2005, when Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow]. But I couldn’t just turn around and say, “I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.” So I just thought, “OK, no more.”

On managing to keep her wedding a secret
Absolutely! I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.

On pulling of her wedding with no press
[Laughs.] I don’t want to sound smug about it…but the point is to do what’s best for me. I have girlfriends in this business who talk about their personal lives, and it works for them, and I love it. But not for me.

    I love love Kerry and I would say this only once. Her head is too big for her body. Like Guilliana Rancic she is a lollipop. Still love you Kerry. Can’t wait for the season 3 of scandal.

      But that is how God made her, so what exactly is your point dear?

      Let us know when you innovate plastic surgery for reducing head width and length

    • Abana

      September 3, 2013 at 9:08 pm

      Please look at her old pictures. She was proportioned. When you become too skinny sometimes your head ends up being bigger than your body. That’s the case here. She wasn’t this small a few years ago and her head was perfect. No, God didn’t create this way. And no, I don’t need to become a plastic surgeon to see she needs 10 more pounds on her bones.

      Abana, you truly have eyes! Her head HAS become bigger than her body because she has lost weight. She wasn’t like this a few years ago…

    She was asked and as ususal said a few words along the
    lines of “it’s personal”. Very sharp woman. No public evil eye in
    her personal business. I just got caught up on season 1&2
    rehash over labor day and seriously looking forward to season 3 of

    Please do not compare Guiliana Rancic’s case to that of Kerry. Guilliana’s own pass lollipop effect. It is actually painful watching her on TV.
    I love Kerry, there is something about those lips of her(no homo) and I like that she likes to keep her private life, well PRIVATE. I don’t think she looks too thin tho
    Come lets share lifes’ experiences at

    The dresses are to die for!!!! Sophisticated yet stylish. Didn’t like the silk Dior dress on her though. Made her look a bit too flat-chested.

    I wonder at the ugly girls who always have something negative to say about obviously pretty girls. KW is fine and gets a pass mark often on several levels so whats Abana (kikikiki aaaaah lol at the funny name tho) and co proportioned analysis for? Why do I feel u are hating or probably overweight?Oh k u can bite me now, KW is fine like that and we the pretty girls love her so does Nnamdi. Find ya square root biko

    Kerry, is beautiful. Yes, she has a big head which I think
    is due to her extreme diet. I think, Shes a vegan. She’s gotten
    skinnier over the years but nowahala bcos still love her.

    I keep flashing back to save the last dance! (She was Derek’s sister)
    Really loved her in it and of course in Scandal!

  28. i cannae remember my name

    September 5, 2013 at 10:24 am

    As for me, I will call a spade a spade. Kerry’s head is big. Anybody who doesn’t like it can like to climb on top NEPA pole. Still love her tho, doesn’t take away from her lollipop shape.

    Seriously, Juliana has gone through a lot. Abana I don’t know if you know about her. She is just smiling behind her pain entertaining you people and u’re here speaking evil about her. Abeg leave her jeje. Is not good the way you describe human being that God took his time to create.
