What goes up, must come down.

After hosting SNL this weekend for the first time to positive reviews (though still amid a little controversy), Kerry Washington got some bad news today when her husband, NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, was cut from the San Francisco 49ers roster.

The 32-year-old cornerback was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2003 and has made three Pro Bowl appearances. The Scandal star and Asomugha surprised everyone when they were married in July and have never talked publicly about their relationship or the recent reports that Washington is pregnant with their first child.
