ABC has neither confirmed nor denied, but sources in the know say the upcoming seventh season of “Scandal” will be its last. The formal announcement is expected to be made at the network’s upfront presentation on Tuesday. Show creator Shonda Rimes told NPR not too long ago, “I feel like there is a finite amount of ‘Scandal’ to be told. So I know what the end of ‘Scandal’ will be, and I feel really good about that. And I can see where the end point is, and I don’t think I’m going to change that.” Ratings are down a bit but still good. There are three episodes remaining in the current season.
Kelly Ripa is probably thinking, Here we go again!

Jason Derulo is being sued by the owner of a limo company for damages caused to his luxury vans. Lonnie Reynolds says his company was hired to transport Jason and his buddies to a club appearance in Los Angeles. After the appearance, the driver drove the same group home and that’s when he claims Jason demanded his pull right up to the front door. The driver said he couldn’t because of all the trees in the way, and that’s when it all went downhill. The driver claims the group threw a temper tantrum, punched the stereo system, broke champagne glasses and used the cut glass to stab the seats and scratch the windows. They want $10K to cover the damages. But sources told TMZ that Jason wasn’t even in the van that night.
