Ask Stacy -- Week of January 14
DEAR STACY: What is Amanda Bynes up to? Someone told me she quit acting. — Sherry N., Wheeling, W.V.
DEAR SHERRY: The talented 25-year-old, whose credits include "The Amanda Show," "Hairspray" and "She's the Man," wrote on Twitter in June 2010, "Being an actress isn't as fun as it may seem. If I don't love something anymore, I stop doing it. I don't love acting anymore, so I've stopped doing it."
The following month, she rescinded her declaration, saying, "I've unretired." Still, she hasn't had a film project since her "Easy A" that year, so it would appear she's cooled it, at least for the time being.
DEAR STACY: I thought Shailene Woodley did a great job in "The Descendants." Is her newfound movie stardom going to mean the end of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager"? — Nicole S., New Port Richey, Fla.
DEAR NICOLE: Not for a while, at least. Look for the show to return to the
ABC Family lineup in March.
DEAR STACY: Who wrote and sang the song "Devil Calling Me Back Home"? It was in a John Travolta movie called "Shout." — Jason S., Sparks, Nev.
DEAR JASON: It's "Devil Call Me Back Home," and it was sung by Chicago bluesman Otis Rush.
DEAR STACY: What ever happened to Melissa Sue Anderson, who was on "Little House on the Prairie?" — N.T., Sierra Madre, Calif.
DEAR N.T.: Now 49, the actress best known as Mary Ingalls came out with a memoir, "The Way I See It: Melissa Sue Anderson," last year.
Up until lately, she's been focusing on her real-life roles as wife and mom. She and husband Michael Sloan have a daughter, Piper, 20, and a son, Griffin, 11. They live in Montreal, Quebec, where she and her husband became naturalized Canadian citizens in 2007. Her acting assignments have been few and far-between, as in the 2006 miniseries, "10.5 Apocalypse," in which she played the first lady.
