(Video) L.A. Attorney Gloria Allred (And Client Nicky Diaz) Skewered On 'SNL'
Fake Allred with Nicky Diaz.
It seemed like nobody around here noticed, but attorney-to-the-disgruntled Gloria Allred was spoofed in the opening of this weekend's Saturday Night Live. The show was planned after Meg Whitman's Allred-fanned nannygate hit the news, and apparently before gubernatorial rival Jerry Brown faced his own whoregate problems that overshadowed Whitman's illegal-immigrant issue.
Allred was portrayed by UCLA alum Nasim Pedrad, who had to have witnessed the lawyer rep many a crying client before news cameras during her time in Westwood (she was raised in O.C.).
The skit took the form of a show, Ask Gloria Allred (video after the jump):
Asked why she outed Nicky Diaz as an illegal immigrant, thus exposing her to possible deportation, Allred says, "That's a good question. I'm going to recommend that Nicky hire a good immigration lawyer."
Asked if there were anything she wouldn't do to get her "butt-ugly mug in front of the camera," Allred says, "I guess my answer would be no."
We have a soft-spot for Allred, if only because she generates so much sensational news in this town. So it was also nice to see fake Allred get to utter those immortal words:
"Live from New York, It's Saturday Night."
