As First Lady Mellie Grant on ABC’s Emmy-winning, smash hit Scandal, Bellamy Young is tough as nails, cunning, manipulative, and the girl you totally love to hate. But in real life, she’s the sweetest, sunniest, most genuine southern belle.

Whether her character is inducing labor to prevent Fitz from divorcing her or remaining by his side during his re-election with a rumored new love interest in tow (spoiler alert!), we’ve never been more obsessed with our Thursday nights. 

Lucky for us, the amazing actress shared an exclusive peek at a day in her life. Read on to get a glimpse inside the Oval Office, Young's shopping cart, and much more.

“Poor Bean would rather still be in bed at 6:00 a.m. on a Friday, but here we go! The beginning of the week usually start at 4:30 a.m., so this feels luxurious to me!”

“Home in time to do a little yoga as the sun sets (primary series ashtanga is my practice). I find it an endless source of balance, strength, peace, and self-revelation. I am, of course, watched over by Bean at the same time.”

“I finish a long, wonderful day with my neighbors. One of our ranks just released a film, so we've gathered to watch a screener and celebrate her. After, I walk home, thanking my lucky stars to be as blessed as I am these days. I unwind a bit, meditate for a while, and fall happily asleep. Thanks so much for sharing my day with me!”
