'Scandal' Returns Thursday, Spoilers: Pregnant Kerry Washington Too Scared to Ask Michelle Obama If She Watches Show

Kerry Washington recently revealed that she was too nervous to ask Michelle Obama if she watches her hit-show, Scandal. 

The pregnant actress and the First Lady have known each other for years, but that doesn't mean she felt comfortable mentioning the show to her. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest Thursday, Washington said she was "super flattered and honored" that Michelle watches the show. 

"I do a lot of work at the White House and I never wanted to say, 'Hey do you watch my show?' while we are out there doing work in schools, so I've never asked her," Washington said who will give birth to her first child in a few weeks. "So it was really fun to hear she watches the show and enjoys it."

"There are White Houses that I think could identify with some of our story lines, but our current White House, not so much," Washington added.

In fact, Michelle told Seacrest in January that although she never used to watch it, she has now caught up on the entire ABC series. 

"I had never watched it," Michelle said. "I love Kerry Washington. She is amazing, so it makes the show fun."

As for any spoilers for tonight's episode, Washington was tight-lipped about what fans can expect. 

"It just keeps getting better and better," Washington said. "It's kind of nuts."

"There are things that happen in the next couple of episodes that had the entire room at our table read crying-things that had us applauding and screaming and laughing," she said. "I mean, we are shocked at every table read."

So... will President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama be watching Scandal tonight?
