What started out as an innocent question turned into so much more!
Ch-ch-check it out
Well, that sure was quick!
The best part is that Alec will be playing a New York City newspaper journalist who questions the SVU department's intentions and brings a new light to a controversial case!
Oh the irony!
However, he's not the only guest star!
Katie Couric will ALSO appear in the episode (as herself) where she questions Alec's character about the case, a hate crime/rape situation, which is grabbing all sorts of headlines in the media!
The episode, which also marks Mariska Hargitay's directorial debut, is set to air on NBC on March 19th.
Guess this means Alec has no intentions of ACTUALLY retiring from the media's spotlight anytime soon!
We can't wait to see how Alec reacts when he's in the journalist in the hot seat!
There were a lot of standing Os for Barry O last night!
But what were celebs saying about President Barack Obama's State of the Union address?
Plenty of stars took to Twitter and exercised their freedom of speech by sharing their thoughts with their followers.
Ch-ch-check out all of their reactions below!
With her talks show's cancellation, we thought for sure Katie Couric would have enough time to create a large and lavish wedding for her and her financier fiancé John Molner - but that's farthest from the truth!
Katie's new Yahoo news commitment, coupled with this being her second wedding, has the couple craving an exclusively small affair!
While doing interviews at Sundance for her documentary Fed Up, Miz Couric dished some details about her big day, including who's been doing the majority of the planning:
Katie Couric may be saying goodbye to the big bucks of network news as she leaves ABC for good, but don't feel bad for her just yet!
Katie's new job as a Global Anchor for Yahoo! News will fetch her a pretty penny! Actually, 600,000,000 of them!
According to insiders, Katie's new contract will get her SIX MILLION dollars a year for what is essentially a part-time job!
Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to us!
Of course, it's still a hefty pay cut from the reported $15 mil she was making while anchoring the CBS Evening News, but hey, times are tough all over!
Nick Cannon had a cringeworthy encounter with his ex-fiancé on the set of Katie while promoting his new reality show Real Husbands of Hollywood!
The host of America's Got Talent tried to clear up the air with a hug and explanation, saying:
"So we'll just clear this all up. We used to be engaged, so it's not an awkward moment. They're [Nelly and Boris Kodjoe] laughing that we're sitting next to each other. But we're cool. We're friends."
Right, because Selita Ebanks reaction totally screams BFFs!! Lolz!
While Mariah may
"I think there's a difference between pushing the envelope sexually and pushing the envelope creatively. I think you can be as creative as you want to be and as inventive as you want to be…you can roll out old ideas and old thoughts and give them a new coat of paint. But the idea of whipping out the girls, I don't know, there's a grossness to it that I think is not flattering…to the women themselves."
Seeing as Bette is one of the original divas, we totally see her point!
Hmmm…We wonder how Mileybird feels about Bette's comments! We hope it doesn't start another feud!!
