The ShondaLand Family has taken over a handful of fabulous covers for ESSENCE magazine this October. The six fabulous covers include stars Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, Shonda Rhimes and others featured in the hit ABC shows.
Last week, the crew also took over Entertainment Weekly. It is expected that Thursday will continue to belong to the coveted creator of Greys Anatomy, Scandal, and How To Get Away With Murder. The press surge comes just in time as the new seasons hit ABC this Fall.
The issue on stands now features candid conversations with stars of the shows, as they gush over how their fearless leader is revolutionizing prime time television.
Kerry Washington opens up about about Shonda’s influence on not just her career but personal live.
“To have Shonda as an example of somebody who is living life fully and attempting to bring the best version of herself to so many different areas of her life has been really powerful for me.”
“Grey’s Anatomy” starlet Chandra Wilson also praised the ABC showrunner. She expressed admiration for her fearless balance of work and personal life.
“The thing I learned the most from her is not to be afraid of yes. I see her exemplify that all of the time in her personal and professional life.”
