The news broke all thanks to De Rossi’s wife, Ellen DeGeneres.
The daytime talk show host tweeted that De Rossi has signed on to do a “top secret arc.”
So annoying when people brag on twitter & that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on "Scandal". Oops.—

A rep for the show said they have no other information on the role at this time.
“Scandal” is set to premiere this fall on Sept. 25.
