Morning Brew – Portia de Rossi joins the “Scandal” cast on “Ellen”


Good morning!

The cast of Scandal was on Ellen this week and new cast member Portia de Rossi came out to surprise her wife and play a game. “You stopped texting me!” Ellen says, and now she knows why. We all know what happens when your boo stops texting you: She’s obviously cheating on you. Nope, just surprising you on your television show with the cast of her television show, including Kerry Washington!

Before the surprise, though, the cast talked about working with Portia.
