Kerry Washington was among the many celebrities invited to the Obamas’ last White House party. Since the famed Scandal actress is no stranger to the fictitious oval office on primetime television, it only seemed befitting for Ryan Seacrest to ask “Olivia Pope” about her experience partying with President Obama.
Red Carpet Chat:
When Kerry Washington appeared on the red carpet at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, she stopped for a moment to chat with Ryan Seacrest, reports E! News. For those who don’t know, the famed actress was nominated for best actress in a miniseries or TV movie for her role on HBO’s Confirmation. But, she took time to give fans a glimpse of what it’s like to party presidential style.
“I was there, I was there with my family, my husband and our kids,” she said referring to her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, their two-year-old daughter Isabelle, and three-month-old Caleb. “It went real late. We left at 3:30 and people were still on the dance floor.”
She also revealed President Obama was one of the partygoers still on the dance floor at the late hour. “When I left, he was still dancing,” she says, but she’s not judging. “He deserves a party, don’t you think?”
A Time To Remember:
In addition to Kerry Washington’s memorable time at the White House, many Americans were moved by President Obama’s farewell address on the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 10. The emotional address left many Americans in tears as the Obamas said their final goodbye to the nation they love. Thank you, President Obama, for all of your hard work!
