Lara Spencer Gave 'Scandal' Gladiators A Heart Attack Today

The ABC Pop News correspondent misspoke and said that Scandal would be on it's final season. 

Luckily, Shonda Rhimes happened to be watching when Good Morning America's Lara Spencer (as quoted by E!) shared "I'm afraid to say it...Shonda Rhimes, she said, yeah... And it is tremendous, so enjoy every minute of it."

Whoa, @GMA: I never said this was the final season of #scandal. Way to make me spit out my coffee!

Once Shonda weighed in, Lara was able to correct it on air, saying that Shonda had an "ending in mind," but we don't know when that will be.

Thank you for the correction, @LaraSpencer -- you have my back!


In other words, Scandal is not going anywhere, Gladiators!
