The very public feud between reality TV parents Jon and Kate Gosselin is bleeding into other TV shows: an upcoming episode of NBC’s Law & Order will feature a storyline about a murderous reality TV dad with 10 kids.
The episode, entitled Reality Bites, tells the story of a real estate developer named Larry who signs on to film a reality show — called Larry Plus 10 — contract the day after his wife is murdered. For added authenticity, Larry has a girlfriend who happens to be a young babysitter.
Even Octo-Mom gets in the act on this one: a character in the episode named Belinda Alvarez is an mother-of-ten, via in-vitro fertilization, who is in competition with Larry’s family to get the show.
“I was hoping for Octuplets,” the character, played by Octo-look-a-like Nina Lisandrello said. “But God decided to bestow that blessing on Nadya Suleman.”
Jon & Kate Plus 8 airs Mondays at 9/8c on TLC; the Law & Order episode airs Oct. 16.
