Jennifer Love HewittThere is a horrific rumor swirling around NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims' Unit, a.k.a. the best Law & Order ever! Mariska Hargitay, who plays every woman's favorite bad-ass female Detective Olivia Benson, confirmed reports that she'll be cutting back her role on the show in order to spend more time with her children. However, that's not the very worst of the bad news.
The bad news is who NBC is rumored to be courting to be her replacement. I mean, I know there's not another Mariska Hargitay, nor do I want there to be one. There's no replacing our beloved Olivia Benson. However, her partner Detective Elliot Stabler, played by Christopher Meloni, can't have a wimpy, lame girly girl partner now.
He CANNOT possibly partner next with the likes of Jennifer Love Hewitt. WTF?
NBC confirmed that SVU will be bringing on a new detective half way through the next season when Detective Benson moves into a new job. But will that new detective really be the uber-lame Jennifer Love Hewitt? God.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not downing my own gender. Girls are awesome. I love girls. High heels are nice. I paint my nails. Girl power! All that ... However, girly girls (girly women) are completely annoying. Jennifer Love Hewitt is not only a mediocre actress at best, but she's also been known to wear pigtails in public. She giggles a lot. She bats her eyes. I think she even has annoying eye twinkle -- like Barbie. I bet she even runs like a girl (please don't make me have to find out). I am a HUGE SVU fan, and I just don't think I can stand to watch the show if Hewitt joins the cast.
Mariska Hargitay is such the perfect package of strong and sensitive and smart -- the kind of woman I love to see on TV. The kind of woman I want to be. Sigh...
Of course, I'm very aware that this is my problem and no one else's. I know lots of you LOVE the Hewitt. Love the girly girlness of the world. And what kind of feminist am I if I cannot stand to let Hewitt be the kind of woman she is, just like I'm allowed to be the kind of woman I am? Really! How dare I judge a woman's hair and laugh and eye twinkles!
Who knows -- maybe Jennifer Love Hewitt will prove me wrong and make girly girl totally bad ass (but please don't make me have to find out).
Would you like to see Jennifer Love Hewitt replace Mariska Hargitay?
