HAMPTON-It's back tonight and fans of ABC's number one drama Scandal are ready for it. So ready, in fact, that one group of local women wants 'you' to watch the season premiere with them.
Mocha Moms Hampton Roads is hosting the free party, open to everyone, at Cinema Cafe in Hampton. These women are part of a national non-profit support group that welcomes all women, but specifically women of color who have chosen not to work full-time outside of the home, in order to devote more time to their families and communities.
Chynne Cousins is in charge of social media for the group. She says they're embracing Scandal and their favorite character Olivia Pope, which is played by Kerry Washington. They see the Pope character as an empowered, take-charge woman, much like they are in their own homes and communities.
"Most of the members in Mocha Moms are really big fans of Scandal and we wanted to raise awareness for our group, let people know that we're in the area in case anyone wanted to join & get involved in our organization," explained Cousins.
You can catch the season premiere of Scandal at 10:00 p.m. here on ABC13.
The free viewing party kicks-off at 9:30 p.m.at the Cinema Cafe in the Riverdale Shopping Center in Hampton.
