A Garden Party For Kerry’s Baby
The creator and executive producer of Scandal, Shonda Rhimes, hosted the baby shower right in her backyard. About 50 or so guests sipped on lemonade and wine under a tent next to Shonda’s pool at the intimate garden party. Jane Fonda, 76, even blogged about the event after. Though there were no hints of a gender announcement, Jane had very kind words to say about Kerry’s celebration.
“I hadn’t seen Kerry since she was pregnant and as soon as I saw her with her gorgeous belly I starting crying. Then Kerry’s mother spoke, giving words of wisdom to Kerry and the rest of us about how to raise a baby to be a happy, fully realized, person. I started crying again,” Jane shared on her personal blog. “It was because her words moved me.”
