Law & Order: Behind the Cancellation
May 21, 2010 in The Unbearable Lightness Of Television
Law and Order, who have been engaged in an extremely public relationship for over two decades, have decided to split. The couple’s publicist issued the following statement today: “After 24 years of marriage, Law and Order are parting ways. The family asks for privacy and respect at this time and both parties hope to resolve the divorce amicably and quickly.”
An amicable split seems unlikely, as sources have confirmed that Law has been seen in public canoodling with southern badboy Treme. Reached for comment, Law denied any infidelity, saying her relationship with Treme is not romantic, and that the two have only met once or twice at industry events.
Our source, however, insists the two are more than friends.
“Law is tired of how formulaic her life with Order is. She loved the structured nature of their relationship in the beginning, but after all this time, she needs a little spice in her life. I mean, can you imagine having sex in the same position with the exact same foreplay every single week for 24 years? Treme is new, exciting and fresh. Plus, he’s willing to try almost anything!”
Law and Order have two children, SVU, 10, and Criminal Intent, 8. As of now, the children will continue their work on television, although it is unclear how the parents will share custody.
The couple suffered a tragedy when they lost their child Trial by Jury in 2006. The child ran for only one season, but was not well received by the public or critics. Friends say that their marriage was never the same, though none have commented publicly on the split.
