Q. Who is Erica Rose? I saw her in something that looked like a documentary, then she was on Dr. Phi l as a spoiled rich woman, and recently she was on Bachelor Pad.
According to a website devoted to her, Erica Rose is “best known for her outrageous antics and high-maintenance attitude on The Bachelor: Rome.” During those 2006 telecasts, “she was famous for wearing a tiara to ‘bring out her inner princess.’ ”
She went on to appear on Bachelor Pad (both the second and third runs), VH1’s You’re Cut Off and a series for Fox Reality Channel. She has both a law degree and a workout video called Stiletto Bikini Blast — because, as she says in the video, “who wants to wear a bikini without stilettos?”
Q. Has Army Wives ended? And why was Kim Delaney not seen in the last episodes?
While it appeared from promotional material that the Lifetime drama’s most recent season would be its last, the network has in fact picked it up for another 13 episodes to air in 2013.
Delaney was little seen on the show after a public appearance in September 2011 during which she seemed disoriented. Since she has reportedly had substance-abuse issues in the past, the appearance raised questions about her health. As far as I can determine, Lifetime has not announced whether she is on or off Army Wives.
Q. On the season premiere of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, is the actor who played the undercover cop Cassidy the person who plays Mayhem in the Allstate commercial?
Yes. That is Dean Winters, an actor also known for his work on Rescue Me. He had a regular role as Cassidy during that NBC series’ first season in 1999-2000 and recently returned. Q. On USA Network, Suits has a little ditty they play at the beginning. Was that made for the show, or is it part of a song?
That’s a tune called Greenback Boogie by the band Ima Robot.
Q. Do you know the future of the show Little People, Big World? It was on Sept. 3 with what appeared to be new shows.
The series ended its run in 2010, but the Roloff family has continued to appear in specials for TLC. The Sept. 3 telecast, which took them to Australia, was one of those specials.
