We are all wondering, if actor Columbus Short, took his work home w/ him??? Too bad we’ll never know. The ABC Scandal star, who’s character is the sharp shooter Harrison Wright, will not be returning to the show next season. It’s widely known that the show’s creator Shonda Rhimes, doesn’t play when it comes to bad press, and rumors heat up Hollywood, about Columbus being warned if he doesn’t “get it together”, he’d be fired. Well, after the much publicized bar fight, and now w/ his domestic violence battery charges, it seems to be too much to bare and the trigger has been pulled.

Our sexy Gladiator In A Suit is gone 😦

Last Night,  ABC re-aired Behind the Scandalabra: Jimmy Interviews Shonda Rhimes, Creator of Scandal,and she gave up NOTHING when it came to talking about the future of actor Columbus as Harrison. I mean come on, we left him w/ a gun to his head, so no rocket scientist here, but I get it…HE’S DEAD!!! I can only imagine what he must be going through. Losing family and career at the same time, has to be devastating. The jury maybe out, but clearly the verdict has come in for Shondaland. Dayuuuuum, Columbus  brings a cool intensity to the series. And, he will be missed!!!

Check out his interview w/ Essence.com (below) where he tells all:

There will be no Harrison Wright when Scandal returns next season. Actor Columbus Short confirmed the news in a statement to ESSENCE.com today.

“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today,” he wrote.

“I would like to first thank Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it.” 

Short leaves the show amid domestic abuse allegations from his wife Tuere McCall-Short who recently filed for divorce and accused Short of threatening to kill her, and himself. McCall-Short filed a restraining order against the actor earlier this month. She is seeking sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter.

On the show’s season finale last week, Short’s character Harrison had a gun pointed to his head. And now we know his fate.

“Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas,” said Short. “I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful.”

KAZY D Returns to Seattle to Host SEATTLE’S GOT NEXT July 18Th at COLUMBIA CITY THEATER!

KAZY D Returns to Seattle to Host SEATTLE'S GOT NEXT!!!
KAZY D Returns to Seattle to Host SEATTLE’S GOT NEXT @ Columbia City Theater!!!

Born in Texas. Raised in LA, Kazy D joined the United States Navy and was introduced to the town by being stationed in Washington. He started Badd Dawg Records in 1995, and was one of Washington State’s 1st Nationally Distributed Rap Artists. Acclaimed Producer Funk Daddy & Seattle’s Underground Majors, DMS dropped the same year. A lot of Seattelites do not know, that Kazy D was an Original Master P/NO LIMIT Affiliate w/ 50,000 units sold!

An accomplished emcee with over 80 cd features, Kazy D left Washington after seeing that the entertainment options were extremely limited. “My CD’s sold on the street hand to hand, w/ no radio play.”, he says. “I find that radio play in Texas and the South region, comes much easier. Shows are more plentiful and they pay more. Seattle has talent but few outlets.”, Kazy explains.

He continues on to say, “I prefer production by Seattle area producers, hands down! However, most Seattle rap acts tend to adhere to an underground sound. This is a mistake, in my opinion. Northwest radio seems to follow the trends instead of setting them, an epic fail. Hip hop’s foundation is regional music presented to an expanded audience known in the biz as a breakthrough hit or crossover. Without a platform for local music the Northwest will continue to be nonexistent. I left Seattle in order to continue to do what I love & get paid for it. As a bi-coastal HIP HOP artist I’ve managed to stay current somehow lol.”

Kazy D aka Blockstarr, released underground classic,
“A LETTER FROM THE GRAVE”
in 1995, which sold 12,000 units and was heavily bootlegged. In 1998 he released a double cd entitled, “NATIONWIDE DOUBLE UP” in conjuction w/ Skyline Records w/ 8,000 original units sold. The album featured, 187 Klick. Kazy D returned in 2004 w/ “CHAMPAGNE WISHES KAVIAR DREAMS” featuring, CBO, SPICE 1, C LOC, JT BIGGA FIGGA, BABY BASH & 187 Klick and 15,000 original units were sold.

After a brief hiatus Kazy D returned in 2010 w/ “STREET TAXES”
(The Million Dollar Mixtape)
this album featured, Chalie Boy, Kinfolk Kia Shyne, Baby Bash & more! After the breakthrough success of radio, mixtapes and mixshow singles: HAVIN VISIONS & LOUDLIFE, KAZY D is currently performing Nationally and Internationally!

Now’s he’s back to usher Seattle’s Urban Sound in Breaking her NEXT URBAN STAR!!!
