Scandal star Kerry Washington spoke at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas about "The New Rules of Social Stardom" and addressed rumors of a split from husband, and former Eagles cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha.
Or did she?
As former Philly.com staffer Esther Lee reported for Us Weekly, Washington said she's had an uneasy relationship with social media because she doesn't talk about her personal life.
"Social media has actually been great for [other celebrities'] relationships with the weeklies or the gossip sites because people say things and they say, 'That’s not true! Just so you know, that’s BS!' I say 'BS' because it’s Sunday. So I'm thinking in some ways, it’s been great because people are able to maintain their voice."
But if you follow Washington on social media, her voice is used mostly to promote Scandal.
"If I don’t talk about my personal life, it means I don’t talk about my personal life," she said. "That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what’s going on in my marriage, I don’t refute them, because I don’t talk about my personal life."
That also goes for chatting about 22-month-old daughter Isabelle, even though Washington is as proud as any mom.
"It’s like I have these itchy fingers where I want to just show my daughter because she’s so cute and instead I like, send it to my shrink or send it to my mother," Washington said.
Yeah, Kerry, but what about your marriage?
