    This actually made me smile!
    Though, I don’t get why all the roles she’s getting are guest stints.

  2. Unfortunate says:

    MVP? Oh, come on!

  3. martina says:

    I need her on my TV on a weekly basis, not on small doses on five different shows!

  4. Scandalous says:

    F*** s*** my one of my favorite actress in my new favorite show <3<3<3

  5. Saint Alicia says:

    Damn straight the MVP!
    And fantastic news; I’ll start marathoning Scandal now :D

  6. El says:

    OMG!!! Lisa on Scandal!!! :D I can’t believe this is happening! A friend and I tweeted a few times to Shonda and told her that it would rock if Lisa would guest star on Scandal and just yesterday we were talking about how freaking cool it would be if it really happend and now it did happen!!!

  7. Sheryl says:

    Is anyone else not happy about this?

    • B says:

      Why would anyone be unhappy? People who like her get her and people who don’t like her don’t have to deal with her for long enough to care because it’s as a guest.

    • Cuddy's lawyer says:

      I’m afraid you are the only one bitter person here!

    • Arianna says:

      Yes you are the only one. Rest of TV fans are happy about this great news

    • JO says:

      Definitely not a fan of Lisa Edelstein but I’m pretty sure, Shonda will make her fierce cuz all Shonda’s women are super fierce (gorgeous sexy Liv, Babygurl Quinn, plottin Mellie, sweet Abby, Cyru’s secretary, assassin Becky, the DC Madam from S1, and Verna, which is one of the reasons I love this show. A fierce LE Scandal character would be awesome. I think even us LE nonfans will enjoy her on Scandal. I’m looking forward to it.

  8. Lolpen says:

    I’m freaking out. I love you Shonda. Lisa in Scandal will be aghdjdjs ashshdddhsj jjsjajasjs

  9. D says:

    Awesome news!

  10. anon says:

    I wonder if she is playing the promiscuous CEO that’s suppose to have had some kind of ties to the White House. When I read that spoiler, I thought, oh no, don’t tell me Fitz had *another* affair. But then someone made the suggestion that it could be Mellie and that just made me kind of squeal in delight. Why shouldn’t the First Lady have a little fun too?

  11. Mary Morris says:

    What great news

  12. Lyns says:

    That is awesome news! Loving that Lisa is gonna be back on our screens, first house of lies and now this!. Freaking awesome!

  13. HappyFan says:

    Fantastic news. I can’t wait!

  14. Omg says:

    Dead. Thank you, Shonda! Thank yopu so much! I love you!

  15. B says:

    I for one am happy! Scandal is great but after this assassination arc, I think it’s been needing some fresh faces. Can’t wait for Scott Foley this week!

  16. Auden says:

    Loved her on “House”. Guess I’ll be watching “Scandal” for the first time. Thanks for the news, Aus.

  17. Little Greg says:

    Nice! Apparently this is my new favorite show. Thanks Michael.

  18. Lavia says:

    Hands down the best news so far in 2013!
    I have been dreaming of this as Scandal is my new favorite show and I have been hoping for Shonda to work with Lisa for years.
    This makes sense and I am thrilled!
    MVP FTW! you got that right Ausiello :)

  19. jenna says:

    ‘House MVP’ You’ve got that right, Ausi!

  20. ppistachio says:

    YAY! “White House” ahaha… One more House :)

  21. VOXPOP says:

    EDELSTEIN GOOD! SCANDAL only 9 more episodes..BAD..me tarzan! lol

  22. Joe says:

    She’s going to be an high class escort who sleeps with a senior White House staff…oh wait.

  23. PhyllisD says:

    Hmm .. you mean that Mellie could be exploring her status on the sexual orientation scale? Hmm, let me think… Yes, I can see that; she does not look like she blows very hot sexually with Fitz (it looks like power and politics give her multiple Os), & even when the marriage was dead she ‘seems’ not to have found ways to cope, because we all know she is not the woman who would through herself into the role of Mom-in-Chief role to replace a loveless marriage. So she could … yeah she could dabble. Interesting…

  24. Sydney says:

    How much longer am I going to have to wait to see her on my tv for more than once every few months? She needs to become a series regular somewhere, soon! But so glad for this guest role, hopefully Rhimes enjoys working with her so much she makes her a guest on Grey’s as well!

  25. sindy says:

    yessssssssssssss…..I love you a Lisa Edelstein…. :)

  26. Cuddy's lawyer says:

    Great news,but I want an own series for Lisa!

  27. Arianna says:

    Lisa rocks!!!! I´m so happy she is back and with the wonderful Shonda. That lady knows how to treat fans of her shows and that´s why everything she touches become a hit

  28. Andrew says:

    This is heavenly! So happy this is happening!
    I adore Lisa Edelstein as she is multi talented gorgeous and so much fun.
    Shondaland is a cool place to hang out at and this sounds like a blast!

  29. Diane says:

    Excited to see Lisa E on my screen again, but agree with some of the other posters on here. She really needs her own show!

  30. moobear says:

    I was very disappointed in her character on Elementary, I was hoping that they would of given her something of an arc, with the possibility of her being the Professor, totally think she could play an amazing villain and I’m sure she would of loved the challenge of it. Here’s hoping that on Scandal they give her something juicily.

  31. Bel says:

    How great to have Lisa Edelstein back on the screen in Scandal! A great actress for a great show. This has me really excited :)

  32. rmcepp says:

    Love Lisa E., she was the best thing on House, other than House.

  33. Ren says:

    YES! first scott foley now lisa edelstein! loved her on the good wife!!

  34. Lolpen says:

    :D :D :D :D House MVP (most valuable player) —> Ausiello knows what he is talking about

  35. klaus says:

    Love Her, please keep her around.

  36. Neco says:

    I too love this actress, she is beautiful and wonderful, don’t wait to see it in a regular series, I need it every week.
