Darby Stanchfield is sharing her knowledge with Press Secretary Jen Psaki. The former Scandalstar hilariously offered her advice to the newly-appointed White House official, after portraying the same role in the ABC series from 2012 to 2018.
Stanchfield, also known as Press Secretary Abby Whelan on Scandal, posted a still from the show, along with one of Psaki.
"Dear Press Secretary Psaki," she began. "#1- If your boss forgets your name, slap a name tag on. (Fitz called me 'Gabby' for WEEKS. 😩) #2- Don’t get power hungry & try to get your friend killed. It won’t go well.😳 #3- No such thing as too much hairspray. Ever. 💨."
"Best, 'Red' aka Sassy Abby Whelan," she concluded.
"I gotta tell you, I played a president on TV a few years ago," he said at the top of the Parade Across America broadcast, "And I never got a parade from Shonda Rhimes anything like the one you're going to see today."
