After celebrating her birthday all week, Cassie was spotted lunching with a few friends in Beverly Hills. Peep her candids and check out the new promo shot for ShondaLand’s upcoming seasons of “Scandal,” “How To Get Away With Murder” and “Grey’s Anatomy” inside….
Last week, Cassie turned 29 and it was certainly a memorable one. Her boyfriend Diddy totally surprised her with a huge birthday soiree attended by her closet friends and family.
Following the birthday bash, the Ciroc girl hit the L.A. club scene to party it up at Playhouse nightclub with Keri Hilson, Serge Ibaka, Bow Wow, Jermaine Dupri and others.
Yesterday, the dark haired beauty enjoyed lunch with a few of friends, likely catching up with what’s new in their lives. We’re sure she dished all the deets on her fabulous week of partying and celebrating her birthday.
In TV news….
Award-winning writer/producer Shonda Rhimes and the casts of “Scandal,” “How To Get Away With Murder” and “Grey’s Anatomy” all struck a pose for a new promo shot as they gear for their new seasons on ABC. The entire ShondaLand gang shot the group shot at the Jewel Suite in NYC back in May.
A few of the stars from her highly popular shows had a few amazing things to say about the ShondaLand mastermind.
“Scandal” star Kerry Washington had nothing but good things to dish about the executive producer saying,
“Shonda invites powerful, intelligent women to be her leads. Her identity as a woman – and the fact that she is a mother – lends to an understanding of people’s range of experiences in life.”
“HTGAWM” lead star Viola Davis also shared a few tidbits about Shonda’s incredible mutli-tasking skills saying,
“There is a calmness that she exudes. Even if internally that’s not what’s going on.”
This pic has us even more excited before ShondaLand returns to the small screen. The new seasons of the three shows will kick off September 24th.
And as we patiently await the premieres, a roundtable discussion amongst Shonda, Kerry, Viola, Davis, and Ellen Pompeo will be featured in this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly. EW and ESSENCE are also set to release new magazine covers starring various ShondaLand cast members, which will be released each Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” starting September 3rd.
Get ready for the ShondaLand take over!
