It's hard to tell at first what's going through Jaleel White's mind as he picks up the new "Family Matters" DVD box set. Front and center is a picture of a young Jaleel, decked out in oversized glasses, suspenders and braces, flashing a geeky smile. As White gazes at the image of himself as Steve Urkel, the ultra-nerd with the high-pitched voice and snorty laugh who became the most popular character of the ABC comedy about a middle-class African American family, his mouth tightens.

Eva Longoria may have ended her marriage with Tony Parker, but that doesn't mean she's ended her relationship with the San Antonio Spurs. Now an innocuous tweet from the "Desperate Housewives" alum has her followers questioning their current relationship while gossip mills rehash their tumultuous split. It even got a reaction from ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale. "Go Spurs Go! I say Spurs in 5!!!!" the actress and longtime Spurs fan tweeted following the team's win and Parker's 21-point scoring game Thursday night during Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.

When they close the pop trivia books on the '90s, one of the strangest phenomena therein will be that of Steve Urkel--the "supernerd"-next-door character on ABC's "Family Matters" sitcom. Young viewers have taken in a big way to this hyper-articulate, irrepressible little pest who talks like a cross between Alvin the chipmunk and Pat the hermaphrodite, and who wears his pants as if planning a walk through the Sepulveda basin.

There's another side to Steve Urkel. There's also another side to actor Jaleel White, who plays TV's most popular nerd, on ABC's Family Matters. Both are revealed Friday on the show's fifth-season finale. White returns as Stefan Urquelle, introduced in an episode last December. This is an Urkel with rearranged genes--in other words, a totally cool Urkel.

My 6-year-old son and I eagerly look forward to ABC's "Family Matters." I was shocked and disgusted when last Friday's show (April 10) dealt with a "loose" girl offering to date Urkel (Jaleel White) in exchange for his tutoring her. They just lost this family as viewers. Alison Brooks, Canoga Park

Kids Ask Clinton: Instead of Saturday morning cartoons on Feb. 20, kids will be able to tune into President Clinton. An ABC News special will feature Clinton answering questions from children in a White House audience, studio audiences around the country and callers from home on the live 90-minute show. Peter Jennings will moderate "President Clinton: Answering Children's Questions."

A fidgeting Kinikki Fullerwood waited in the studio audience for a glimpse of her favorite TV star. So naturally, the 14-year-old squealed with delight when she was told she could personally meet Steve Urkel. That's the name of the nerdy, bespectacled character that has become the surprise star of ABC's "Family Matters." On the show, wisecracking Steve is a scrawny, brainy boy who relentlessly pursues Laura, the cute girl next door.

Celebrity chasers visiting Media City might want to check out Taco Bell on Olive Street, across from Warner Bros. and near NBC in Burbank, which boasts a parking space designated "LIMOSINE." (Yup, the home of the 69-cent taco missed the U.) An enterprising manager instituted the space in 1986, when he began mounting celebrity glossies on the walls. "That got the ball rolling about making the store a slice of Hollywood," says Taco Bell rep Chandra Streifel. The restaurant, No.
