Los Angeles – Our dreams came true last night when Ellen Degeneres let the world know (via her Twitter) that her beautiful wife is returning to TV.

The Australian actress, born Amanda Rodgers, is no stranger to the small screen and has acted on hit shows such as Ally Mc Beal and Arrested Development.

She is also a published author, having released an autobiography of-sorts entitled The Unbearable Lightness of Being in which she documented her struggle with anorexia and bulimia as well as the up the hill battle to be a queer person in Hollywood.

The leggy blonde will star in M-net’s Scandal in a much anticipated storyline.

Here’s the tweet from Ellen:
Here’s the confirmation tweet from the scandal writers:

Ellen, who in the past has stated in the past what big fans of the show she and Portia are, seems to be beaming with pride (we would be too.)

Here’s an Instagram from last year of them watching the show:

We don’t as-of-yet know who she’ll be playing or what her character will be doing, but as fans of the show know, anything can happen in the land of Olivia Pope!
