"I'll be going back to work in July," she said. "I'll be waddling my way around OPA [Olivia Pope & Associates]. Don't worry."
As she preps to head back to work, Washington has returned to social media. Her break from posting ended when she and a group of gal pals saw Jennifer Lopez's Las Vegas residency show, All I Have, at Planet Hollywood over Memorial Day weekend.
"I just came back for a little window, because I couldn't not share my Vegas extravaganza!" she explained. "We had a blast, so I didn't want to not share that trip with everybody."
Washington's connection with Lopez goes back to childhood, when they both grew up in the Bronx and even went to the same local Boys & Girls Club. It was there that the future pop superstar taught Washington a few dance moves.
