Disney ABC Television Group's 2014 Winter TCA Party - Arrivals

It’s been a long month for actor Columbus Short. The co-star of ABC’s “Scandal” has been going through some things both on and off the screen. Earlier this week reports surfaced that his wife filed for divorce for a third time alleging abuse and is seeking sole custody of their daughter.

To make matters worse, the status of Short’s character Harrison W is up in the air after a gun was pointed at him by the head of B-613.

Harrison Killed Gif

No shots were heard or seen, so fans are speculating that writer Shonda Rhimes is giving herself an out in case Short’s off-screen issues become detrimental to the show.

Roland Martin scored an exclusive interview with the actor for “NewsOne Now” and asked him directly if there are any truths to the claims about his divorce and abuse.

“Life has the best scriptwriters of all time. That’s all I can say about that,” Short replied with a chuckle. “I don’t mean to laugh but it read outlandish and it sounds even more outlandish coming out of your mouth.”

Listen to the full interview below.

After the season finale of “Scandal,” Short called into the Tom Joyner Morning Show to discuss the tenuous nature of his character Harrison at the end of the show.

Tom: You got shot at the end of the show, and I’m thinking ‘Wow. ‘

Sybil: Or did he?

Tom: Or did he?


Sybil: No, that’s a question. That’s a question for you.

Columbus: Can I keep it 1,000 with y’all? I don’t know either. (Laughs)

Tom: OK, because I’m thinking, I’m thinking all right. They shot a lot of endings to reveal that Papa Pope was the mastermind of killing all these people.

Columbus: But you know [inaudible]. But you know when you stop racking your brain, you’ll realize it was only one ending. It was the one ending that was already written. Like Shonda had this whole show written from the top to bottom. [inaudible] She has me written top to bottom.

Tom: So how long ago did you know you were going to get shot?

Columbus: The day I got shot. But I’m lying because I didn’t get shot, n*gga, man, I mean, people.

We think Short needs to take some time off and worry about his family. Olivia had the right idea. Get on a plane, bro.
