We all knew something was going on with Columbus Short….but know he’s being completely candid and telling us exactly what was going on with him just months ago.  His marriage was falling apart, he lost his best friend and ultimately his role on the hit show Scandal he turned to drugs and alcohol to “self-medicate”.  And we all know that doesn’t work….

I had a lot on my plate, and you know, I was using unhealthy ways to kind of self-medicate and deal with a lot of heavy duty stuff in my life.

Watch his interview here:

I’m really ready to get back to work,” he said. “As far as Shonda’s shows, I would love nothing more to go back to ‘Scandal.’ It’s my family

Scandal fans all around were buzzing that the shows creator Shonda Rhimes didn’t ever show his character getting killed or even the body.  Could this be leaving the door open for Short to come back to the show?!  Let’s hope so!

I’m rooting for him to stay clean and get his life back on track…. and back to being on the show.
