DEAR STACY: Every time I sit down to watch TV, there is Jennifer Lopez in yet another commercial. Any idea how much she's making from all that? — Kevin A., Chattanooga, Tenn.

DEAR KEVIN: Lopez reportedly makes $25 million a year, $20 million of which comes from "American Idol." You have to know a large chunk of the remaining $5 million is coming from advertising and endorsements. But companies feel she's worth seven-figure deals. When Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony contracted with Kohl's for their lifestyle collection, the store expected them to drive sales of an astounding $3 billion.

Work-wise, she recently did a guest star stint on "Person of Interest" and voiced a character in the video game Lollipop Chainsaw, due out this year.

DEAR STACY: Some friends were talking about Nicollette Sheridan, and I said she was related to the late "Kojak" star Telly Savalas. They thought I was imagining things. Can you help? Also, wasn't he related to Jennifer Aniston somehow? — J.J., Fairmont, Minn.

DEAR J.J.: Savalas, who died of prostate cancer in 1994, had a son, Nick, with Nicollette's mother, Sally Sheridan. Therefore, Savalas' son is Nicollette's half-brother. The "Kojak" star was also the godfather of Jennifer Aniston.
