Now that we’ve finally (kinda) learned WTF happened to Olivia Pope after her disappearance, ‘Scandal’ actress Kerry Washington made an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ Thursday night. Check out pics of her fab arrival and clips from her interview inside…

Gorgeous mom, wife and actress Kerry Washington turns 38 tomorrow (Saturday). So she’s got lots to celebrate: The return of “Scandal”, her birthday and the Superbowl. Oh, and she just hit 1 million followers on Instagram (and she celebrated with an IG message from her and her pup Josie).

Before catching up with Ne-Yo backstage, Kerry chatted up Kimmel in the hot seat and tried not to give away in spoilers.

She also dished on her birthday always falling around the Superbowl:

“There have been a couple years when my birthday was in perfect alignment with the Superbowl and I felt like the whole nation was partying for ME. You can’t tell I’m an only child can you?”

As for what her b-days were like as a kid:

As an only child, my mom always would give me a theme party if I wanted one. It was important to my mom that I had toys that reflected a bunch of different cultures. So I had black dolls and brown dolls….and one year I requested Snow White. My mom was like, ‘Ughhh’.

And if she still gets presents from her parents at this age:

“I tend to send something to my parents something….I feel like they did all the work. I just came out. And I like to put something inappropriate in the card like ‘Thanks for getting it on….’ And if you know my mother, she’s like, ‘Ughhh’.

What are your thoughts on the “Scandal” winter premiere?
