Seems like there’s yet another scandal on ABC’s hit show, “Scandal.” The fried chicken that First Lady Mellie Grant, played by Bellamy Young, is often seen chowing down on? It’s actually vegan.

The “secret” was revealed on Twitter on courtesy of Young’s new co-star (and fellow vegan), Portia de Rossi.

“I LOVE fried chicken Mellie!” de Rossi tweeted at Young. “From one vegan to another!”

Young revealed that the show is making her the most “delicious vegan chicken ever” to which de Rossi quickly asked, “Hey @BellamyYoung, did I out you as a vegan??”

Not quite. Young, who is originally from North Carolina, told Southern Living Magazine back in August 2013 that, “I may be vegan, but my mama’s buttermilk biscuits are the most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted. Asheville is a great city for vegan foodies.”

And it seems Young has quite the appetite for her vegan food from on set. She tweeted on the weekend that she took the shoot’s leftover vegan chicken home with her, using the hashtag: #VeganChickenRocks.

Sounds delicious!
