Ask Stacy - Week of March 26, 2011
DEAR STACY: I wish I had the money that girl in the T-Mobile ads must be making. They're everywhere! Can you tell me something about her? — Kevin A., Richmond, Va.
DEAR KEVIN: That's 22-year-old Toronto-born fashion model Carly Foulkes. She went into modeling full time at age 17, and her portfolio ranges from Rugby to Abercrombie & Fitch, Macy's to Tommy Hilfiger. Don't be surprised to see her turn up on TV or in a movie one of these days. She reportedly hopes to break into acting, and this saturation commercial campaign has provided her with a launching pad and legions of admirers.
DEAR STACY: Am I imagining things, or wasn't that the Miller High Life delivery man on the Disney Channel show "The Suite Life on Deck" the other night? He's a funny guy. Who is he? — H.C., Austin, Texas
DEAR H.C.: Windell Middlebrooks is indeed the actor seen as security guard Kirby on "Suite Life," as well as the buoyant bringer of brew on those High Life spots. The Fort Worth-born actor is probably best known for his comedic work on such series as "Chocolate News," "The Bernie Mac Show" and "Scrubs," but come Tuesday (3/29), he'll be seen regularly as Dr. Curtis Brumfield in Dana Delany's new ABC series, "Body of Proof," in which she plays a medical examiner.
DEAR STACY: I think I saw Henry Gibson on TV the other night, and I would like to know what he's been up to.
DEAR LAURIE AND JOHN: Gibson died in 2009. His former "Laugh-In" cohorts Arte Johnson, Judy Carne, Chelsea Brown, Richard Dawson, Eileen Brennan, Dave Madden and Alan Sues are still very much alive, while show business lost Teresa Graves and Larry Hovis in 2002 and 2003, respectively.
DEAR STACY: Why did Chelsea Staub change her name to Chelsea Kane? — Tori B., Clearwater, Fla.
DEAR TORI: This is how the "Jonas" actress and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant explained it on Twitter: "People struggled with pronouncing and spelling 'Staub.' Got tired of 'Stab' and 'Stub' ... 'Chelsea Kane' makes life simpler." It does have a ring to it.
