How Judy Smith — the Real Olivia Pope! — Told President George H. W. Bush About Scandal's Plotline

Scandal wound up being a major hit that is still referenced within popular culture to this day — but it wouldn't have been a reality without Judy Smith. Smith, 63, previously served as deputy press secretary in President George H. W. Bush's administration. In 1991, she became the first Black woman to deliver a White House press briefing. She eventually left her position to start the crisis management firm, Smith & Company — and then her real-life work inspired Scandal, which was created by Shonda Rhimes.

Essay: George H. W. Bush showed us how to live with purpose and find unexpected friendship

There was no household staff. No coffee waiting in the morning. No meals on the table. No schedule. No nuclear treaties to negotiate. No crises to solve. No cabinet meetings. The morning after President George H. W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush left Washington on Jan. 20, 1993, was a rough beginning. In “The Man I Knew,” I write about the 25 years that followed, during which I served as the former president’s chief of staff. In this excerpt, I want to tell you about the Bushes’ love affair with Houston. Hidden in some of these stories is how President Bush taught all of us some valuable life lessons: how to accept defeat with grace, how to lead even when you are out of power, how to live life with joy and purpose.
