We were devastated to report a while back that the super SEKS Christopher Meloni was getting ready to leave his hit series, Law & Order: SVU.
Luckily, producers must have offered him a significant pay raise because he's now seriously backpeddling and asserting that his comments about leaving the series were conveniently misunderstood by the reporter!
"What I said was 'When your contract is done…that will be the end. Because when your contract is done, it's usually the end. But when [producers] come back to me, you know, we can always talk.' I couched it incorrectly. It wasn't [the reporter's] fault. I had one year [left] on my contract. Our show hasn't been picked up. Those are the facts of the matter."
Phew! We seriously doubt SVU is going anywhere - it's the best police procedural since the original Law & Order, and Benson and Stabler are the best together!!
And what would happen to Ice-T and our beloved Coco?! Girlfriend needs those guest-starring roles!
Thanks for staying committed, Chris! Crisis averted!!
