Columbus Short sat down with TMZ Live and talked about his ‘Scandal’ departure.

“I had a great time on Scandal but I’m really excited about what I’m doing now in life,” Short said. “I’m a film actor and being on a show playing one character every week was not really what I wanted anyway, but who knew Scandal was gonna be huge.

Short also discusses his relationship with creator of ‘Scandal’ Shonda Rhimes:

“I think [Shonda] feels different things. Maybe I might be the bad child that she loves but just like can’t get right maybe,” said Short, who confessed to learning his lesson regarding his recent run-ins with the law.

“There’s a responsibility that we have as entertainers and artists that I didn’t uphold, because I was still acting like I was a regular Joe,” he said. “But if I’m trying to run for president, there’s certain things that I can’t do… certain places I shouldn’t be, and it’s been a really big learning lesson for me.”

WSB TV 2 News reports,

State investigators have arrested a woman accused of filing a fake state tax return for $94 million.

Now investigators say they are looking for the woman’s cousin, whom they say also filed a fake tax return.

Channel 2 Action News was at a Cobb County supermarket as Brigitte Jackson was arrested at the bank counter inside the store.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s $94 or $94 million. We’re going to go after you and hold you accountable,” said Georgia Department of Revenue Special Investigations Chief Josh Waites.

Investigators said Jackson tried to trick the state into paying her the fake $94 million tax return. But investigators said they stayed one step ahead.

Waites said investigators asked Jackson to come to the supermarket to pick up her $94 million refund check. That’s when she was arrested.

She is facing five charges, including attempted theft by taking and conspiracy to defraud the state.

Waites said Jackson’s cousin, Darrius White, like her, reported $99 million in income, tried to claim a mammoth refund and now faces the same charges.

Agents and police went to what turned out to be a former address and did not find White.

Waites said White is already on felony probation.

cooking couple

The husband and wife team from “Down Home With The Neelys” are ending their 19-year marriage, according to TMZ.

Gina and her estranged husband Pat Neely became household names with a long-running Food Network show. According to the docs, they’ve been separated for 2 years … though you’d never be able to tell from their show … which they’ve continued to shoot all along.

Gina cites irreconcilable differences in the papers — but according to a joint statement … they’re splitting on good terms, and will continue to run their NYC barbecue restaurant together. They also say they’ll be focusing on their “individual brands” … which sounds like the show might be cooked.
