This week's episode of "Law & Order: SVU" pulls a triple, tackling the Ray Rice, Donald Sterling and Jay Z/Solange elevator scandals. Watch the trailer inside and get the deets on Nicki Minaj's 2014 MTV Europe Awards hosting gig.
The writers at "Law & Order: SVU" are so messy! And we love it. Last year, they ripped the Chris Brown/Rihanna saga from the headlines and turned it into a trashy episode and now Ray Rice, Donald Sterling, Jay Z and Solangeall get their turn at bat, in ONE episode!
Airing Wednesday (on NBC, 8pmCT), the "American Disgrace" episode stars fictional NBA player Shakir “The Shark” Wilkins--plyed by Henry Simmons-- who is accused of rape by a PR employee from his clothing line. The ish jumps off after a shocking elevator scene, captured via security cam, and goes public via the "LMZ" gossip site. There's no audio and only raw camera footage. Sound familiar?
Here's the trailer:
We saw how that Chris Brown/Rihanna episode went so....
