Might pop superstar/living legend/human meme Mariah Carey one day match wits with Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) on an upcoming episode of ABC's Scandal?

The Shondaland series is, after all Mariah's favorite — a fact Mariah revealed at the Television Critics Association's press tour, where she's promoting her upcoming limited event Mariah's World.Mariah called out the Shonda Rhimes produced series as her go-to fave for binging and even watching repeat episodes.

Naturally, TVGuide.com wants to do everything possible to make Mariah-on-Scandal happen, so we took time to grill ABC President Channing Dungey on where we are in this very important process after Dungey's address on Thursday.

"I actually don't know, but that could be interesting," Dungey said, laughing, before adding that — surprisingly — the decision wasn't up to her. "You can't make Shonda do anything that Shonda doesn't want to do."

So you know what you need to do next, Gladiators: mercilessly beg Rhimes on Twitter to get Carey to do a guest turn as the latest client of Olivia Pope & Associates. Maybe they could handle that whole "puppy delivery service" thing Carey casually mentioned during the Mariah's World trailer that sent animal rights activists into a tizzy.
