DEAR STACY: Is Blake Lively related to Eric Lively, who was on "The L Word"? Is Robyn Lively, Blake Lively's sister? -- Teri, Richmond, Va.
DEAR TERI: Yes, the "Gossip Girl" beauty is the baby of an acting family that includes older brothers Eric and Jason and big sisters Robyn and Lori.
Blake's mother, Elaine, is an acting coach, and father Ernie is an actor and director. Ernie played Blake's dad in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," and he and his children -- plus Robyn's hubby, Bart Johnson -- appear in the 2006 Crispin Glover horror movie, "Simon Says."
DEAR STACY: I'd like to know if the T-Mobile girl can be seen in anything besides those commercials and wearing a different color than pink. -- G.R., Cedar Rapids, Iowa
DEAR G.R.: Model Carly Foulkes, 23, was cast last summer as Retro Girl in the FX Network's pilot of Brian Michael Bendis' "Powers" comic series, about detectives who investigate cases involving subjects with superpowers. No word on when to expect it, but there are already plans for her to be prominent in the advertising, probably not wearing T-Mobile-magenta.
DEAR STACY: Mackenzie Phillips made such a big splash with her book accusing her late father of incest, and then she seemed to disappear. I'm curious what's happened to her. -- Carla I., West Haven, Conn.
DEAR CARLA: From April 'til earlier this month, she was busy starring in a Hollywood, CA stage production of a new play by five-time Tony nominee Michael John LaCiusa, "Sukie & Sue: Their Story," described as a dark surreal comedy about two nurses. Noah Wyle was one of the producers, for the Blank Theater Company. Phillips appeared on "Extreme Clutter" on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) in January, working to gain control of her home even as she ditched reminders of her days as a drug addict.

DEAR STACY: Are Denis Leary and Conan O'Brien cousins? I have heard this more than once. -- Paula S., Cedar Rapids, Iowa
