Law & Order: SVU has had sources reveal that they plan on doing an episode this fall that is loosely based on the Schwarzenegger scandal.
In the SVU version, Schwarzenegger’s doppelganger is Andrew Raines, a charming, seductive Master of the Universe-esque philanthropist in his 50s who is part of one of New York’s royal families. His wife, Kathleen, is (duh) the Maria Shriver of the piece: charming, charismatic and fiercely protective of her family. She’s the perfect match for her perfect husband, though unlike him, she is not afraid to get down and dirty when attacked.
That trait will come in handy when she discovers that her hubby had an affair with someone in their inner circle, a romance that produced — yep, you guessed it — a bastard. It’s unclear where the sex crime comes in, but an insider tells me it involves the golden couple’s wealthy, entitled son, Tripp.
Sounds less "loosely" based and almost "exactly" based to us! Just rename the characters, add a crime to give it a reason to be on SVU, and boom — a topical episode!
We're innerested in seeing who they get to play "Andrew Raines," which is a pretty cheesy character name for a politician. It'd be hilarious if they got a body-builder with an accent.
Will U be watching the upcoming season of SVU??
