“With her baby due this spring, ‘Scandal’ star Kerry Washington already wants the best for her unborn child and has asked President Obama to be the godfather!” begins an absolutely absurd story from Star.

Let that sink in for a moment.

Anyway, the magazine further claims, “Kerry isn’t only concerned with her baby’s well-being — she’s thinking of her career too.”

How so?

A so-called “informant” for the tab says, “Kerry’s been courting the President and First Lady for some time now because she wants to play Michelle in a movie.”

The purported “insider” goes on to allege, “She’s desperate to have someone as prestigious as the Obamas as her baby’s godparents and plans on casually asking Michelle at the next fundraiser they attend together.”


It seems like someone over at Star has been watching too much “Scandal.”

For some bizarre reason, the magazine and its sister publication the National Enquirer are intent on trying to link the actress to Obama, despite how obviously ridiculous the idea is.

In any case, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who laughed off the outlandish story.
