We, just like everyone else on the planet with a love for Olivia Pope ponchos were shocked and dismayed in 2013 to learn Kerry Washington was secretly married to former football cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. And then we felt equally played when she didn’t announce to us that she was pregnant with her now one year old baby girl Isabelle. She never lets us get too close but we shouldn’t take it personal. After all, the Scandal star has a strict no personal life policy when it comes to the general public and that includes the Twitterverse.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Natalie Jarvey shared some tidbits from a talk Kerry gave at this year’s SXSW where she explained why she doesn’t get in on Twitter drama.

“Kerry Washington says that, like fashion, she got into social media as an extension of her job,” the first tweet read.

“Kerry Washington says she doesn’t talk about her personal life on social media, which also means not refuting untrue rumors,” she continued.

“Comments are not about me. When someone comments on social media, they are revealing something about themselves,” the last tweet read.

And there you have it. The three basic reasons why we won’t be writing up a piece on any of Kerry’s Twitter wars anytime soon. She doesn’t show up for battle.
