DEAR STACY: Curtis Stone is my favorite of the reality-show celebrity chefs. How about some background? — Jana W., Santa Ana, Calif.

DEAR JANA: The Australian super-chef is married to actress Lindsay Price ("Beverly Hills, 90210"), and they have two sons, ages 4 and 10 months. He hails from Melbourne, where he began cooking with his grandmother as a lad of 5. He was studying for a bachelor's degree in business before realizing he belonged in the world of food. He began his cooking career at Melbourne's Savoy Hotel as a teenager. He worked with many European and British chefs there before heading to Europe to gain more experience. In London, he worked with renowned chef Marco Pierre White — and made his first major breakthrough gaining acclaim as head chef of Marco's Quo Vadis restaurant. A natural for TV, he did cooking shows in the U.K. and Australia before starting his hit "Take Home Chef" show on TLC here in the States. Since then, he's racked up credits from "Celebrity Apprentice" to "The Biggest Loser," has come out with cookbooks and a line of cookware, and has been named one of People magazine's Sexiest Men Alive.

DEAR STACY: Is it true that Howard Stern is leaving "America's Got Talent"? He's the best thing about the show! — LaurenG

DEAR LAURENG: It is true that Stern stated his intention not to continue with the hugely popular "AGT," and added that the spot should go to producer/mean judge Simon Cowell.

However, since Stern has announced the same intention in previous years as a renegotiation ploy, he might just wind up back in '16.

DEAR STACY: How tall is Meryl Streep? I've seen her look like a tiny thing, but a relative of mine insists she is quite tall. — jgm_er

DEAR jgm_er: The remarkable actress is a very unremarkable 5-foot-6. She has been made to appear different heights for various roles. Perhaps your family member is thinking of her as 6-foot-2 chef Julia Child in 2009's "Julie and Julia." It's movie magic.

DEAR STACY: Benedict Cumberbatch is amazing as an actor. I heard he is Buddhist. Is that so? — R.L., Huntington, W.V.

DEAR R.L.: In 2013, the brilliant actor of "Sherlock" and "The Imitation Game" fame told The Hollywood Reporter's Stephen Galloway that he's Buddhist "at least philosophically" and has an affinity toward meditation and mindfulness.
