Question: Last Monday's Entertainment News mentioned you being "on assignment." Anything you can talk about? Tony King
Ausiello: Yes, as I noted in last week's AA, I was on the New Jersey set of Law & Order: SVU for an upcoming TV Guide cover story. I spent much of the day holed up in my pal Mariska's newly remodeled office/dressing room
peeing my pants discussing her plans for the hiatus, getting her thoughts on a Benson-Stabler romance and clearing the air about those pesky baby rumors. (She also showed me her fantastic website, Mariska.com.) Although I have to save most of her answers for the cover story, I can tell you that, despite rumors, Marish is most definitely not expecting although it's not for lack of trying on the part of her and hubby Peter Hermann. And here's some scoop: Mariska confirmed that when (and if) she gets pregnant, it will be written into SVU. That's right, Benson's gonna have a baby!
