One of Washington's favorite soap operas has a new fan: Michelle Obama.

The first lady says she recently watched all the available episodes of Scandal, the ABC melodrama about a crisis manager who has to deal with various forms of Washington mayhem.

"I hadn't watched it until this past vacation -- we went to Hawaii so I had a long flight -- so I watched all the seasons," Mrs. Obama told interviewer Ryan Seacrest. "I caught up on Scandal, I never watched it."

Michelle Obama had special praise for Scandal star Kerry Washington, who plays fixer Olivia Pope (and whose activities include an off-and-on affair with President Fitzgerald "Fitz" Grant).

"I love Kerry Washington, she is amazing," Mrs. Obama said. "So it makes the show fun, it really does, it was fun to watch."

It probably doesn't hurt that Washington and Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes are big supporters of President Obama.
