"L&O" Does Their Best ANS Impression

4/18/2007 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comJust in time for May sweeps, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" is rolling out its Anna Nicole Smith-inspired episode. It's brimming with classic "ripped from the headlines" goodness!

Kristy Swanson plays Lorelei Mailer, a blonde bombshell whose life closely mirrors that of Anna Nicole. No, she didn't eat her way into the role -- she just had a kid. Comedian David Cross plays her manager/advisor/boyfriend/lap dog. That doesn't sound familiar at all.

In this clip, both characters are interviewed by police after Lorelei's son is killed. It's what they call in the biz, "Art imitating life." The Anna Nicole-themed episode airs May 8 at 9:00 PM on NBC.

"Art imitating life" my ass. More like "uncreative writers desperate for ratings".

The drugs that killed ANS were in Howards name.Daniel did not carry methodone into the country according to the customs officials, someone gave it to him there and ANS was in the bed after a c-section so it wasn't her, and it wasn't the baby and it wasn't the nurses.Daniel had ten times the normal dose of methodone in his body.But now with a 5 million dollar deal on these photos and interviews Larry is DEFENDING Howard, the guy who kept his baby from him after the mothers death refusing the DNA?And people are worried that Virgie might get visitation rights and/or some money?Virgie never sold pictures of Anna or Daniel nor has she ever sold any stories about Anna's personal life. But you keep saying SHE is after money?Now that Larry has the new cash cow he is all buddy with Stern?
Great. Dannielynn will OD earlier than her brother. She will get hooked on pain medication from the pain of her breast implants at 16 (or at least that will be the excuse since that is the excuse her mother used years ago.)

I WONDER WHO WILL PROFIT FROM ALL THIS. OR CAN THEY DO THIS WITHOUT ASKING ANYONE TO DO SO,I JUST THINK IT SUCKS TO PROFIT OFF ANN NICOLE'S LIFE AND DEATH WHEN SHE ISN'T HERE ANY LONGER.AS WELL AS HER SON DANNIELYNNI DON'T WATCH ET ANYMORE . AND I DID LIKE CSI BUT NO I DON'T CARE TO WATCH THAT.
I SURE HOPE THAT LARRY AND DANNIELYNN CAN GO ON WITH THEIR LIVES WITH OUT THE MEDIA ALWAYS ON THEIR TRAIL.

LARRY I WISH YOU THE BEST AND THAT YOU AND DANNIELYNN FINDS YOUR WAY IN LIFE WITHOUT ANY OF THE GANG WANTING TO FOLLOW YOU.

How completely tacky and inappropriate.
Does anyone in America have respect for anyone anymore? She JUST died. I thought all the ridiculous parodys of Steve Irwin was a one off. Clearly anything goes in Hollywood.
Thankfully Dannielynn is too young to watch this garbage.

I love Law and Order, and have since the beginning. I thought the recent show was fantastic. The beautiful, sexy and under exposed Charlotte Ross, was simply hypnotic as an obvious Ann Coulter. Anyone else agree..........prediction.....Charlotte Ross, will have her own show.

He will do everything he can to stop the real father of your children getting near them. He will buy a boat with your money. He will film you while you are drugged up---But HE WILL NOT DIAL 911

Art imitaing life, my butt, This is cheese imitating sleeze. The good old make a fast buck off the hot topic, Hollywood sleaze machine. It is so damned cheesy it stinks that a law and order episode would mirror the Anna Nicole Smith saga. It also says something else very sad. Some movie people dont think this subject is worth being a decent, feature length, possibly academy award winning film.

I was not an Anna Nicole Smith fan. However it it is horrible that Anna and her son are being trivialized in this stinking Law and Order episode. I truly wish the people responsible for trivializing this sad true life tragedy had the footage of their show stuck right up their ass.
