Ask Stacy -- Week of March 10
DEAR STACY: Years ago, there was a reality show called "The Starlet," and the girl who won was supposed to appear on "One Tree Hill." Whatever became of her? She was a really beautiful girl. — Jordan S., Wheeling, W.V.
DEAR JORDAN: You are referring to Minneapolis-born Michelynne McGuire, who did appear on "One Tree Hill" in 2005 — the same year "The Starlet" came and went. It is readily apparent that her career did not take off. Her only other credit is in a film called "The Olivia Experiment," which is in post-production.
DEAR STACY: My friend will buy me a box of the stuff if I'm right; I say that Yvette Nicole Brown of "Community" did a Fiber One commercial a while back. And the actress who plays Mrs. McCluskey on "Desperate Housewives" was in the same commercial. Do I win? — Jamie G., Fullerton, Calif.
DEAR JAMIE: You win. The old spot has "Desperate Housewives" actress Kathryn Joosten asking, "What's the deal?" Good memory.
DEAR STACY: Is Deanna Durbin still living? I still think of her in "Lady on a Train." — A.W., Fairmont, Minn.
DEAR A.W.: Yes.
She had obviously had her fill of fame. It's been reported that when they wed, David agreed to give her what by then she wanted most: "the life of nobody." Durbin has remained true to her plan to stay away from Hollywood despite numerous attempts to woo her back for various projects and events. She is the mother of a daughter and a stepson.
DEAR STACY: Please settle a long-standing disagreement. My friend says that "The Golden Girls" theme song was sung by the late Rue McClanahan. I say no way. Who is right? — Lorna A., Jamestown, N.Y.
DEAR LORNA: "Thank You for Being a Friend," written by Andrew Gold, was sung by Cynthia Fee.
