Hopefully the "UnCountless" will be the corpse at the beginning of the show with no speaking lines?
LuAnn please, money didn't buy you class, nor did you learn elegance.
Go away!

Law and Order is practically on it's way out and by inviting this wench, it's the kiss of death.

LuAnn (whatever her name is) has proven to be rude, obnoxious, and classless (not to mention totally lacking in any kind of taste whatsoever). I'm amazed that a series like Law and Order would employ her. What a letdown for all of us L and A folks.
