Diane Is Running for A Congressional Seat

Posted By: diane neal online | Posted On: February 05, 2018

Actress Diane Neal, a Hurley resident, launches independent bid for 19th Congressional District seat

By William J. Kemble, news@freemanonline.com

Posted: 02/05/18, 2:54 PM EST | Updated: 1 hr ago

TV crime drama actress and Hurley resident Diane Neal has launched an independent bid for New York’s 19th Congressional District seat.

Neal, 41, who had a long-running stint on NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and also a recurring role on CBS’ “NCIS,” is a registered Democrat, according to the Ulster County Board of Elections, and will need 3,500 signatures on petitions to secure a spot on the November ballot as an independent.

Interviewed Sunday in Woodstock, where the six Democrats seeking their party’s nomination in the 19th District had gathered for a debate, Neal noted she has advantage over others seeking the House seat because she already has gotten the better of Donald Trump.

She said they met about 15 years ago when she was a judge on TV show “The Apprentice,” which Trump hosted before he got into politics, and that during an after-party, she endeavored to check whether his hair was real.

“Donald and I are roughly the same height,” she said. “After talking with him for a while, he stood in front of me [with his back turned], and I slipped a chopstick right in that thing because I wanted to see what it was made out of, how it was attached.

“I started getting a nice amount of loft,” she said. “I’m sure that someone has a tape of this somewhere … and I swear to God it was like I was about to see the singularity. It was like all time and space was ending. Then he walked away and he took the chopstick with him, and for the last 15 years, I’ve wondered, where did it fall out?”

Neal said she met Trump more than a dozen times and was never subject to inappropriate behavior by him, which numerous other women have alleged.

“Keep in mind I play the meanest people on TV, and usually I play people with guns,” she said. “People tend not to mess with me.”

Neal played Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak on “Law & Order: SVU” from 2003 to 2008 and again in the 2011-12 season. On “NCIS,” she portrayed Agent Abigail Borin in six episodes between 2010 and 2014.

Neal has lived in Hurley since 2014 and has been active with the Urban Arts Partnership, the Waterkeeper Alliance, the Young Leaders of the RFK Center for Human Rights, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Thirst Project, the Joyful Heart Foundation and the Middle Way House, according to a written statement announcing her candidacy.

She began undergraduate studies at Harvard University in 2009 and expects to earn a degree in May, the statement says.

After listening to the Democratic candidates debate in Woodstock, Neal said she’s pleased with her decision to run as an independent for the seat currently held by U.S. Rep. John Faso, R-Kinderhook.

“I heard a lot of really dedicated people who are passionate about this,” she said. “However, what I didn’t hear was how any of them would appeal to anyone outside of this room, [such as] my cross-bow neighbor who gives me sweet venison. He’s not even going to listen to these guys.”

The 19th Congressional District comprises all of Ulster, Greene, Columbia, Sullivan, Delaware, Schoharie and Otsego counties; most of Dutchess County; parts of Rensselaer and Montgomery counties; and a small section of Broome County.

Neal said her political views are “a lot of everything.”

“I’m a little Libertarian, I’m a lot liberal, mostly progressive, but I have this amazing ability to be able to take really complicated policy and break it down into edible sound bites, which is something most progressive liberals cannot do,” she said.

“I love this country,” she added. “The majority of my family, most are active service at the moment. Even my grandmother, who escaped the Holocaust, she came to New York, she joined the Navy. She was a bad ass, she was awesome.”

Neal said she contemplated running for Congress for about a year before deciding she has enough faith in the democratic system to take a chance.

“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” – E13X18 Valentine’s Day Stills

Posted By: diane neal online | Posted On: May 31, 2015

I have a couple of stills for you of Diane from her final episode of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT as our favourite redhead ADA Casey Novak. The episode is Valentine’s Day from the thirteenth season. My gosh I miss both her and Christopher Meloni. The show is just a mish mash of stuff that doesn’t even bear any resemblance to the show it once was and certainly is not about sex crimes of the NYPD. And where’s the LAW of the show? Ah well.

“NCIS: New Orleans” – E1X13 The Walking Dead Screencaps

Posted By: diane neal online | Posted On: February 05, 2015

Diane’s second appearance on NCIS: NEW ORLEANS. Not as much of her in this but enough for impact. The only beef I have with this episode is that BD Wong, Diane’s co-star in LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT where he played Dr. George Huang to Diane’s ADA Casey Novak, also guested. Problem: They never had any scenes together. Why must the Gods punish me?

This is a funny interview with Diane from two years ago attending a gala for The Thirst Project. She talks about SUV, CSI and many other things but the best is she talks about diarrhea being funny. Particularly explosive diarrhea. She is just too funny. Enjoy.

Diane in “This Magic Moment” On The Hallmark Channel

Posted By: diane neal online | Posted On: July 17, 2013

Diane’s telefilm THIS MAGIC MOMENT has an airdate. The Hallmark Channel plans on airing it on August 17, 2013. More below the cut.

Diane Neal, Travis Schuldt, Vincent Spano & Charles Shaughnessy Star In ‘This Magic Moment’ On August 17

Diane Neal, Travis Schuldt, Vincent Spano and Charles Shaughnessy star in the Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere of This Magic Moment on Saturday, August 17 at 9 p.m. ET.

Aspiring screenwriter Clark Gable (Schuldt) sees a chance for his big break when a movie, starring fabulous actress Helena Harris (Neal), comes to shoot in his small hometown. Clark manages to catch Helena’s attention and is soon helping her in her plan to make a former lover jealous. However, when their fake romance turns into something more, Clark finds himself caught between his admiration for the famous beauty and his feelings for his ex-girlfriend who has recently returned to town.

The cast also includes former daytime soap opera stars Brook Kerr, Molly Burnett and Robin Riker. Burnett and Riker have both been nominated for Indie Soap Awards for their web series work.

If you might remember Shaughnessy guest starred on an episode of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT as a rapist in a case Casey prosecuted. the episode was called Recall and aired in the show’s eighth season. It was memorable due to the guest starring roles of Connie Nielsen as Det. Dani Beck and veteran actress Leslie Caron as Lorraine Delmas, a role Caron won an Emmy Award for Best Guest Performer. And Vincent Spano starred in a couple of episodes of SVU as FBI Agent Dean Porter. I love SVU reunions.


Diane & Novak

Posted By: diane neal online | Posted On: October 13, 2012

I’ve noticed a lot of comments directed toward Diane on her Twitter account regarding a return to SVU as Casey Novak. She keeps saying to those queries that it’s not up to her to be on the show. If as a fan of hers you think she has the power to hire herself, don’t know the way the television business works. She can only return to SVU only if there is the desire on behalf of the current showrunner and Dick Wolf to rehire her to come back and play the character. She cannot force the powers that be to hire her or to write for her character. That can only happen by the fans tweeting the showrunner and or the creator/producer of the show to ask they bring her back. So instead of directing all your comments at Diane and clogging up her Twitter account with those continuing questions, why not direct those comments at Warren Leight and Dick Wolf? It might seem more constructive to do so instead of asking her where she has no power. Only you have the power to bring Novak back either in a guest capacity or a full blown capacity a la seasons five through nine. I know this post may seem a bit snotty, but I thought it needed to be said. So what I’ve decided to do is to create a section in the sidebar where you can interact directly with Leight and Wolf to barrage them with those queries. Now one thing I should let you in on, Leight is notorious for blocking those who are negative towards his vision of the show with his pet Danny Pino as Vanilla Boy Amaro. The only other power you have as a viewer is plainly not to watch and tell Leight and Wolf you don’t like the new direction the show has gone in. I know we Christopher Meloni fans are tired of trying to tell Leight and Wolf we want Stabler back and give Chris what he deserved. So I’m just going to ask that you stop inundating Diane with those questions since she really has no power whether Novak returns. Certainly voices are being heard over at CBS where Diane is set to return to NCIS as Abigail Borin. See, they care about their fans…NBC, Leight and Wolf don’t give a crap which is why SVU‘s ratings are tanking. Just my own observation.

Diane Neal 'Hey dudes'.

Posted By: diane neal online | Posted On: August 10, 2012

There is a television station here in Canada that airs LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT weeknights at 7:00 PM. Tonight while watching something else they played this promo. Because I have a PVR I was able to rewind and get the recording device I use to record things off the television onto my compurter fired up. Sorry the caps aren’t larger but I wanted to keep the integrity of the images sooner than blow the pixels. Enjoy.
