03/04/2005 Entry: "Three Degrees of Mariska Hargitay"

So Susan's watching American Idol the other night. Which means I'm watching it too. (Then Jules says "Well, if you like hamburgers give 'em a try sometime. Me, I can't usually eat 'em 'cause my girlfriend's a vegetarian. Which more or less makes me a vegetarian, but I sure love the taste of a good burger.") Anyway, there's this girl on there, and I comment that she looks kinda like the woman detective on Law and Order SVU. (Another show Susan watches, which means I watch it, and then Jules says...)

Anyway, Susan says "You mean she looks like Mariska Hargitay.

"Sure, if that's what her name is. I have no idea. What's her name on the show?" Susan can't remember. I guess Emma or some other old fashioned but not hideous name. So Susan goes to the Internet.

"It's Olivia," she says. "Oh, and guess what? Her mother is Jane Mansfield.

Pretty weird, huh. Like three degrees of separation or something.

Replies: 2 people have rocked the mic!

big grin Hey Bill,

I lol'd reading your story. You must be a lot younger than I as I vaguely remember her mother being killed in a car crash where Mariska was sleeping in the back seat? Anyhoo catch you later!

BTW have you caught the "assicons?"


*lol* it must be Friday!

Um, yeah, I guess I am a lot younger than you! LOL

She died in 1967. I wasn't born till '71. So I guess that's why I don't remember it. But you're right--Mariska (and two siblings if I recall Susan correctly) was in the back seat.
