Mariska Hargitay Gala

TMZ says Law & Order: SVU cast member, Mariska Hargitay’s, lung has partially collapsed for the second time in the past few months. The first time was over the holidays. The second time came today. The cause is currently unknown.

Mariska’s rep says she has pneumothorax, a condition that occurs after a chest injury. Hargitay is not expected to miss any work and “will appear in all episodes for the rest of the season.”

Thank god. Because if I miss just one episode of my loosely fictionalized crime dramas, I just don’t know what I’d do. Probably curl up into a ball and die.
