Q: The actress playing the daughter on The Millers was engaged to the glee club director on Glee. Was she written out of that show?

A: Emma Pillsbury, played by Jayma Mays, ended up marrying Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) on Fox’s Glee. As far as I can tell, they are still married, but we have seen Emma rarely since the show did some cast overhauling before the current season.

“It wasn’t my choice,” Mays told Britain’s Metro. “The creators decided to do it. … It’s very sad to be going, but I understand why they do it. It’s about getting new blood into the show.”

Mays had no trouble landing a regular series job on CBS’ The Millers, where she plays Debbie, the sister of Nathan Miller (Will Arnett) and daughter of Tom (Beau Bridges) and Carol (Margo Martindale).

Q: The woman who plays Heath Ledger’s 19-year-old-daughter in Brokeback Mountain looks familiar. Who is she?

A: That’s Kate Mara. Most recently she has been seen as Zoe Barnes, the ambitious reporter on Netflix’s House of Cards. She is the sister of Rooney Mara, the star of the Americanized version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

Q: What happened to SOAPNet? I so enjoyed it at night to catch up on General Hospital since I’m working during the day.

A: SOAPNet is washed up, with owner Disney/ABC ending it on Dec. 31. There were fewer daytime dramas to provide programming, and one of the biggest, The Young & the Restless, left SOAPNet for TVGN. At the same time, the rise of DVRs meant more people were recording soaps instead of watching the replays on the cable channel.

Q: Is Gigolos is going to return to Showtime?

A: New episodes began on Thursday night.

    The culinary magic of Mexico City

    How integral is food to Mexico City’s culture? My taxi driver from the airport offered me a plate of her chicken tinga tacos. From a covered platter she kept inside her cab. She didn’t try to sell them to me. She wanted to give them to me, to welcome me with a taste of her native Mexico City. And maybe to show off a little for the food writer.

    Q. My next-door neighbors for the past 30 years are two elderly women who are now in their eighties. One has COPD and is frequently hospitalized; the other has macular degeneration. They don’t seem to have family members to help them, nor is there any contact by a social worker as far as I know.
