"Hi, you guys, so you know how private I am, but I am going to do something crazy. I am going to give you my phone number, which I know sounds insane. You know, I posted about this last week. I've been missing that TGIT love. We used to come together every Thursday night at the same time and the same place. I would know where you were, and you would know where I was, and we would talk about stuff that really mattered to us and kind of be in a community together, and I want to bring some of that back because I miss you guys," the mother of three began her video in a Tweet that had her phone number as the caption.

"So, I'm giving you my number it's 718-400-7118, shout-out to the boogie down Bronx, and I really want you to text me. I want you to ask me questions. I'm going to send links like special sneak peeks. You guys are going to be the people I am closest to in terms of trading information, so text me. Really, really text me," the Scandal alum ended her video.
