I think it’s a often used aphorism for writers when they are told to “write what they know” and it seems that these days you have to have lived under a rock to not know about the Chris Brown and Rihanna drama. It looks like the writers of NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit are taking real life events and doing an episode dedicated to the CB and RiRi sitch and pulled off their own spin in an upcoming episode called Funny Valentine. Long story short, the show’s version of Chris Brown gets killed. I honestly don’t know how I feel about that.
The episode description reads as follows: “Law and Order SVU 14×16 “Funny Valentine” – A promising singer is brutally attacked by her boyfriend, a popular hip hop star. ADA Barba (guest star Raul Esparza) works to build a case, but the victim refuses to aid the prosecution and, despite Detective Benson’s (Mariska Hargitay) best efforts, continues to put herself in danger. The case quickly spirals into a media circus, perpetrated by both the defendant and his uncompromising attorney (guest star Tambor). Also starring Ice-T (Detective Odafin Tutuola), Richard Belzer (Sergeant John Munch), Danny Pino (Detective Nick Amaro) and Kelli Giddish (Detective Amanda Rollins). Special appearances by Perez Hilton, Dave Navarro and Wendy Williams.”
