I know there are some true, die hard Harrison fans out there, but honestly, I don’t think Short’s absence will hurt the show one way or another. And if you have any doubt about that, you need look no further than a recent radio show where he discussed the allegations Tuere (aka Tanee) Mc Call-Short, Columbus’ wife, made against him and how, in his opinion, it would be best for her to simply “shut the f*ck up.”This segment was levels and layers of wrong but we should first begin with the fact that Hughley doesn’t believe Mc Call-Short’s claims.
He believes that since the couple is going through a divorce proceeding, she’s out to sully his reputation. Like the time Warren Sapp was getting ready to do the Super Bowl and some broad said that he raped her.
A hearing will be held May 6 to address whether the restraining order would be made permanent, E! Short was confronted with his personal drama during his "New One Now" interview with Roland Martin on Thursday, just ahead of the Season 3 finale of "Scandal" airing on ABC hours later. While Short deflected the remarkable accusations and didn't seem completely present in the interview, he ultimately told Martin: "Don't believe everything you read."It's not the first time his estranged wife, whose maiden name is Mc Call, has filed for divorce, either: She filed papers in 2012, but dismissed the petition earlier this year, the Associated Press reported.

The "Scandal" star, who appeared in "Cadillac Records" and is also a recording artist, has previously been charged with criminal domestic violence and child abuse while his wife, their daughter and his other son were in the house, TMZ reported.
