One thought on “‘Why Do We Support the Sidechick and Hate the Wife’- SOPHIA NELSON

    Couldn’t listen to the audio but I want to thank you for addressing the issue. I refuse to watch scandal due to the ongoing affair/mistress aspect that they seem to portray in a glamorous light. Also I’ve heard the stars or writers use the affair to explain the selection of a white president (since they didn’t want to portray a black president having an affair). I think they should get rid of the affair so they won’t feel compelled to have a non-black president. Either way I can’t bring myself to watch it as long as the affair is part of the show. It’s ashamed since this is one of the few dramatic roles for a black woman on a major network and look at what she is doing!
