Kerry Washington was joined by series creator Shonda Rhimes and her fellow "Scandal" co-stars for "An Evening With Scandal" last night. Get the deets on the series pulling off its best ratings yet inside….
Last night, Kerry Washington (shown above with co-star Jeff Perry aka meanie Cyrus) attended "An Evening With Scandal" presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood last night. Our fave fashionista "fixer" wore a pink sleeveless frock with a cute bow at the waist.
Meanwhile, series creator and head writer Shonda Rhimes wore a stylish blue coat as she celebrated what became the series’ best night ever! Last night’s season finale (that had us laid out with multiple wine bottles and a racing pulse) became the series’ most watched episode, easily winning its time slot and reaching an all-time high in each of the key women’s demographic groups (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).
Also, the show ended the season as ABC’s most social program with over 4.3 million tweets. The season finale had over 571,353 tweets alone (the highest of any episode)!
TV personality Shaun Robinson turned up in a sexy hot pink frock.
And the season finale’s breakout star, Joe Morton, (whom you may remember as Sen. Byron Douglas from "A Different World") was all smiles. We’re sure Joe knows that his name is on the tip of everyone’s tongue today. And every Scandal fan knows why….

Kelly Rowland and Jennifer Hudson were among the celebs who attended the the 28th Rock and Roll Hall of FAME Induction Ceremony last night which featured performances by Usher and Public Enemy. Get the pics inside and see the newest inductees…
Showing a little leg and a lot of sass, Kelly Rowland stopped traffic on the red carpet of the Rock and Roll Hall of FAME last night at Nokia Theatre L.A. This black Maria Lucia Hohan AW’13 lace front slit "Latifah" curve hugging dress, complete with a lace train, is freaking amazing.
With her hair in a tight bun and Doves by Doron Palona 18K Rose Gold Rose Quartz Earrings, Kelly looked amazing as usual as she came out to support.
Michelle Williams got the "Destiny’s Child Memo" and also showed off a little leg. The "Fela!" Broadway star donned a body hugging black and white dress with contoured piping.
Michelle arrived with producer Harmony Samuels and Kita Williams.
Usher also turned heads in a leather jeacket, tuxedo slacks and red sparkly loafers.
Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels attended the show and performed on stage with Chuck D, Heart and Dave Grohl.
Filmmaker Spike Lee came out to support Quincy Jones and Public Enemy (whose songs where featured in Do The Right Thing), as both were honored during the ceremony.
Legendary producer Quincy Jones was inducted into the Hall of Fame and awarded the Ahmet Ertegun Lifetime Achievement Award.
Public Enemy was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Looking gorgeous in a one shoulder number that screamed 70s glam, Jennifer Hudson performed a tribute to Hall of Fame inductee Donna Summer. Gorge look for her.
Hall of Fame inductees, Public Enemy, hit the stage to the delight of the crowd. Flav looks like an 80-year-old man these days:
But we’re wondering why he wore his "Talent" badge on stage? Or why he even needed a backstage tag. Could he be mistaken for anyone other than himself?
Oprah Winfrey was on hand to present an award to Quincy Jones.
Usher was also on hand to honor Mr. Jones.
He later hit the stage and performed a stellar tribute to Quincy.
The event will be broadcast May 18 on HBO. Congrats to the inductees!

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is on the way back, and judging from the trailer the foolishness will probably be ramped up exponentially. Monami Entertainment held a preview of the new season for press last night (April 15) in Atlanta at nightspot Cream Ultra Lounge.
Presented by MYX Fusions Lounge, the entire Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast was in attendance; Stevie J, Joseline Hernandez, Mimi Faust, Lil Scrappy, Erica Dixon, K.Michelle, Rasheeda, Kirk Frost, Karlie Redd, Benzino, Momma Dee, Ariane Davis, Shay “Buckey” Johnson, Che Mack, Traci Steele, and Baby Drew.
Also spotted inside was Shawty Lo getting it in with his ATL peers as well as the show’s producer, Mona Scott-Young. Hip-Hop Wired was on hand and early word is the Joseline is maintaining her ratchet pedigree, Shay was hurling slander and Rasheeda is very, very pregnant. Check back for more details later.
For now, peep the photos from last night’s event, courtesy of the good folks at ATLPics, in the gallery. Also, Steebie’s new artist, Che Mack, looks a whole lot like Keisha Cole, don’t she?

Meanwhile, Teyana, rocking her signature cropped top showing off those killer abs, revealed that she’ll release her debut album in the next few months. "Right now we are looking at a summer release. Whatever doesn’t make the album we will use for my mixtape. We are not going to put any song to waste.”
"LAHH ATL" stars Joseline and Stevie J were boo’d up at the showcase in some mad awkward pics. The duo are set to continue the second installment of their love triangle (this one featuring Che Mack) when the show returns to VH1 on April 22nd.
