Jimmy Kimmel enlists 'Scandal' stars for Spanish series 'Escandalo' -- VIDEO

It’s no secret that Scandal is a big hit in the United States — but Jimmy Kimmel would like everyone to know that there’s also a Spanish-speaking version of the Shonda Rhimes drama, and it’s kind of a big deal in Mexico.

Welcome to … Escandalo! For Kimmel’s version of the show, he enlisted actual Scandal actors to create a telenovela that’s just a smidgeon crazier than Shonda Rhimes’s actual show. Whatever you’re picturing, it’s even better. Plus, it has Guillermo in the role of El Presidente. Let’s just say, Kimmel has this handled.

'Scandal' star Scott Foley goes shirtless in new ad for linens -- VIDEO

Scott-Foley-Charisma.jpg

After a painfully long hiatus, Scandal finally returns Thursday night, and to be honest, we’re a little worried. We think you might not be ready for all the sexiness that will be presented to you. Let’s have some real talk: This show is filled with very powerful, very attractive people, and you haven’t seen them since 2013. For example, last we saw of Jake, he was named Command, which means he’s not only in charge, but he’s also in a suit. Can you handle it? (We know Olivia can.)

So in order to properly prepare you for all the eye candy that will be returning to your television screen, we’ve found Scott Foley’s latest shirtless endeavor. As the spokesperson for Charisma’s spring campaign, he’s ready to talk about luxury linens. But more importantly, he’s ready to see how they feel against his bare chest. And the kicker? The hunk of a man claims he never feels sexy. “My wife has told me that I am sexy, and people on Twitter tell me that I’m sexy, so there must be something there, right?” Yeah, we think there’s a little more than something there.

Hey TV: Stop Raping Women

They’re scenes all too familiar to any TV viewer: A woman is shoved down, she screams or sobs, her eyes grow wide and then blank as she wills herself anywhere else in the world. Lately the small screen has felt particularly thick with such moments of sexual horror, as writers have been churning out story lines in which our saints, our heroines, and our hard and cruel women too, are raped or forced to relive their nightmare of it. Try to imagine a singular abuse endured by an equivalent number of male characters. And yet it seems whenever a female character needs a juicy arc or humanizing touch, writers fall back on the easy, awful crime of rape. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Matchmaker: Matthew Taylor and Quinn Perkins

Some of our favorite TV characters are often unlucky in love. They just can’t seem to find The One — but what if The One is on another show altogether?

Right about now, the fate of Grey’s Anatomy‘s Matthew Taylor is TBD. The mid-season finale ended with Jackson interrupting Matthew’s wedding to April by pronouncing his love for Matthew’s bride. But which hunk will April choose? Well, while we wait, I started thinking about what I wanted to see happen. In my perfect world, I think April belongs with Jackson. There’s something to be said for being that comfortable with someone. So then what happens to Matthew? Don’t worry. I’ve got big plans for him. READ FULL STORY

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Dental work, torture of any kind

I have an extreme fear/hatred/phobia of all things having to do with teeth. Growing up, the dentist’s office was my least favorite place in the world. To be honest, it’s still in my bottom five. And it’s not even necessarily about pain. It’s the chill that gets sent through my body when I think about the sound of dental tools or the smell of a dentist’s office. I feel like it’s a ridiculous fear, but I’m told it’s not all that uncommon. Therefore, I’m hoping that my teeth-related pop culture pet peeve is also not all that uncommon.

Basically, my least favorite thing in any movie or television (or book, for that matter) is anything having to do with dental work or torture. We will tackle torture first, because it’s the most relevant in my life right now. Why? I’m looking at you, Scandal.

In the last couple of episodes of Scandal, there has been way too much teeth action. First, Huck decided to torture Quinn to get information out of her by pulling her teeth. Keep in mind that Huck is a trained killer, which means he knows hundreds of way to torture/kill someone. In the seconds before pulling her first tooth, he literally lists all of the other ways he could make her talk. So why did he have to pull her teeth?!  Surely it can’t be fun to film, and I assure you, it is not fun to watch:

Ditto, Sons of Anarchy fans, who watched Tara and Jax finally reconnect, which only made her exit all the more painful.)
