Scandal: 8 reasons why Olivia and Mellie are the perfect besties

By 11:02:00

It’s been a rocky road for Gladiator Olivia Pope and her rival Mellie Grant. The former First Lady of the US, now Virginia Senator, adored Liv in the early election campaign days. They had a common goal after all - get Fitz into the White House, which, of course, they did. That was before Liv slipped under the sheets with Fitz and Mellie’s world slowly, and oh so cruelly, imploded. 

Fast forward to season 5 and we have Mellivia, the on-screen partnership I never knew I needed in my life. So what makes Mellie and Olivia perfect bestie material?

1. They’re both intelligent women, dealing with power-hungry men.

2. They secretly admire each other. 

3. They’re not afraid to tell each other how it is. 

4. They identify with each other’s struggles.

5. They’ve both had to make sacrifices for the greater good. 

6. They both have family issues. 

7. They like a drink. Or ten. 

8. They could probably rule the world together some day.
