ALL OF THIS pearlouslyclosetotheedge! I don’t fucking understand how people and Shonda ride for Mellie’s nonsensical bullshit! First of all, even if she didn’t “open her legs” she had an EMOTIONAL affair with this dude. Emotional affairs are just as bad as physical ones.
Instead of opening her legs for Nichols and his love, she opened them for Fitz and power. So…yes, you are the same as Olivia. Run tell that, maid!
Also, these motherfuckers are really trying to paint Fitz as the bad guy for being mad that his WIFE would no longer let him touch her. Not even just sex — but showing physical affection! Of course he’s going to be frustrated because SHE decided to use her fucking RAPE to blackmail Big Jerry so that she could get Fitz into politics instead of BEING A WIFE and LETTING HER HUSBAND IN and telling him the truth about his dad and ALLOWING YOUR HUSBAND TO BE THERE FOR YOU AND FIGHT FOR YOU instead of walking around wondering what’s wrong the marriage. So tired of Mellie’s fuckshit.
Hahaha nikkisshadetree u told da absolute truth no sympathy fuh pimp mellie! Double standard ho!nikkisshadetree
^^^ALL THIS! Such a shame that I hate the fake air this character breathes! Mellie has seriously overstayed her welcome in their marriage, in the White House, and on the show frankly.
Fitz has psychic powers so he should have known that his father raped her. This whole fuckery is bullshit and I dont have one ounce of sympathy for Mellie’s fake, ugly ass
Either I missed something or there is a timeline error. First Flashback epi 15 years ago ? this new fuck shit 14 yrs ago.
So Mellie had the BrotherSon ???
Yea, I guess she had Jerry in the flashbacks…I dunno girl. I barely care.
I’m sorry but are we all watching the same show here? Mellie was raped and she didn’t tell Fitz because she was still traumatized and instead of being sympathetic and recognizing that something was different with his wife, Fitz decided to berate and degrade her. Then she tried to kill herself and when Andrew found her and saved her and sat with her all night her confessed his feelings for her. Mellie being in a vulnerable state could’ve easily fallen for Andrew but instead chose to stay faithful to her husband.
Even in present day, she feels uncomfortable in having an affair with Andrew for whatever reason. Maybe she’s still in love with Fitz or whatever it is she couldn’t continue and have a relationship with him.
Mellie isn’t in love with power, she’s in love with control because she’s lost so much control in her marriage and in her life. Mellie studied law and gave up her career just to support Fitz. She gave up her dream of becoming a lawyer or whatever and is now playing second fiddle to Olivia.
He takes any chance to disrespects her and doesn’t treat her with the decency she deserves for being the mother of his children.
bellecosby He decided to berate and degrade her? Really? For asking what’s wrong and why wouldn’t she let him touch her? You are acting like Fitz went on and on yelling at her telling her she isn’t shit. That’s NOT what happened at all.
I feel bad for Mellie being raped, no one should have to go through that. But, for someone to use rape as a bargaining chip to get her FIL to push Fitz to run…well, sorry, not seeing it for her. At all. Plus, Mellie isn’t even in love with Fitz. If you recall, in 2.02 in the limo, Mellie goes “We were never…but we were partners.” There’s no love, and Mellie knew from jump that this was a game of pretend and a business arrangement (2.18).
Also? Mellie gave up her career because SHE wanted to. Fitz didn’t ask her to do that shit. In 3.07 we see that Fitz wasn’t even privy to the conversation Mellie and Cyrus had about quitting. She was a partner at a law firm for crying out loud, Fitz didn’t ask her to give that up (and honestly, she looks stupid for doing so considering the fact Hilary Clinton remained a partner at her firm up until Bill was in the WH. Mellie could have done the same). Mellie is “playing second fiddle” to Olivia and Fitz because she does not have pride enough in herself to not hang on to a man who has REPEATEDLY in some many ways shown that he does not want her. How many times does the man have to say he does not want her? Second fiddle to Olivia? The same woman she arranged a meeting so that Fitz could get some sleep (1.03), the same woman she blamed for “breaking Fitz’s heart” (1.07), the same woman she essentially told to keep sleeping with Fitz (2.08), the same woman she told to come back to the campaign because Fitz is better with her (3.05)? Mellie has cosigned this affair too many fucking times instead of getting her life and filing for divorce her own damn self — all to remain First Lady (which she likes being, as repeatedly show AND reiterated in 3.11) — for me to feel bad for her.
Moreover, you cannot begin to talk about Fitz disrespecting Mellie when Mellie gives as good as she fucking gets. The woman made jokes about him dying. Also? She treats him like shit and w/o the decency HE deserves for being the father of [most of?] her children. Y’all people act like she’s a damn shrinking violet crying because Fitz loves Oliva. Mellie gives no fucks and gets right in his face. All the man wants is a fucking divorce and she’s doing any and everything in her power to hold on to a man that does not want her, but would certainly help her in all of her political endeavors (which she is likely scared to do on her own because all of her plans need to be fixed by Olivia plus she was’s the glory without any of the work). She may not even be the mother of one of his kids! Jerry may not be his and she has this man thinking the boy is his. That’s one of the most fucked up things a woman can EVER do to a man. Girl, bye and miss me with the Mellie apologist bullshit.
So, yea, I disagree with your ENTIRE argument about Mellie. Bye.wins.Damn. Yet another female apologist. No wonder we females get a bad rep. One absolutely cannot refuse to communicate w/your partner, but then hold it against him for not providing for your needs. Folks, give that shit a shot in your real life relationships and see just how quickly you find yourself alone and miserable. Really, I dare you.
Get them nikkisshadetree!! LOL!! bellecosby:, Nikki be like
I’m so sick of people acting as if Mellie Grant is a fucking saint..It’s because of her manipulating, devious ways i can’t stand the Maid!
Had to reblog all of Nikki’s accurate and awesome dialogue about Mellie!!! Could not agree with you more Nikki…
Tom isn’t really B6-13. This is a plan set in motion by Olitz to reach their endgame. The whole overheard fight and Oval tape was to deceive Joke’s gullible, easily led ass.
Hmmm im beginning to believe that cuz Tom iz hella loyal to olitz! Plus he iz d only one fitz really trusts besides Liv.i want to believe fitz knows alot bt he iz quietly working out things, he iz a Rhodes Scholar afterall! Ppl jus underestimate him over and over again.
Tonight is the first night I have come to the point of not wanting to watch scandal anymore! Like wtf was dat Shonda, stop messing with my show!
U hav been tryn to make ppl have sympathy for mellie since this show began bcuz if she is the “smartest person in the room” as BY says then why didn’t she talk to her husband instead of alienating him, now she can’t deal with the consequences *shock face*
Stop fuckin fitz over and over again plzzz I beg u. We are tired of the flickin back and forth wit him an liv. Joke is nt a viable option for liv bt I guess thats the road u r supposedly heading bt we cud b wrong who knows.
Empower Olivia, do not break her down like some dollar ho that fitz picked up!
This is nt da mellie show so get ur shitt together.
I will say this im kinda glad fitz an liv r spending time together even if they are fighting at least he knows where he stands with her. But liv needs tuh make up her DAMN mind bcuz its either u want to be with him or u want him to be president or u want him to stay in his dead marriage, make up ur flickin mind bcuz u r using jake as an excuse to run frm fitz and ur problems. Thats ur MO nw u r a runner bt this time if u run there is no coming back!
They’re goin to use mellie’s rape to bind fitz to her watch and see!
