When, exactly, did Sherri Shepherd become an icon of the multi-platform, multimedia age? And does she get residuals? A co-host of "The View," the author of a book and now the star of her own Lifetime series, Shepherd has taken her hard-knock past, infidelity-plagued marriage and gift of gab and created a cottage industry of self-revelation. For years, Shepherd was a professional sitcom guest star, most recently on "30 Rock." Then she became an official lady of "The View," acting as self-appointed surrogate for working mothers, wronged women, born-again Christians and the factually challenged.

There was never a bandleader quite like Woody Herman. His instrumental skills--on clarinet and alto saxophone--were high-grade, but not at the virtuoso level of such contemporaries as Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw. Although he is credited with a few pieces, his compositional efforts cannot remotely be compared to the work of Duke Ellington or even Stan Kenton.

Dear SOS: I recently dined at Rustic Canyon Wine Bar & Seasonal Kitchen in Santa Monica. I had the root vegetable shepherd's pie with butternut squash puree main course. It was wonderful. Jacqueline Shubitowski Sherman Oaks Dear Jacqueline: This is just the dish to eat right now, while we are still enjoying the last of that cool spring weather. Note that the recipe can be made ahead of time up until Step 10, then finished just before dinner so it's served piping hot.

"The Newlywed Game" is renewing its TV vows. Episodes of the veteran game show that pits newly married couples against each other are being revived on Bounce TV, which is geared toward African Americans. The series, which first premiered on ABC in 1965, has been on and off the air on various networks and in syndication since its launch. These episodes were previously produced for the Game Show Network. But founding host Bob Eubanks, the personality most identified with the show, will not be along for the ride this go-round.

"I'm not worth nothing. " Four years ago, the skinny kid with the muffled voice stood in front of the bathroom mirror in the tiny Compton home, holding a towel and hearing those words. "I'm not worth nothing. " His mother was on the streets. His father was in the shadows. He wasn't anywhere, having been passed around to four relatives in five years, chased out of his previous home by a crazed relative who yanked a garden hose inside the living room and started spraying.

Once a Las Vegas card dealer, Grace Konosky of North Hollywood is now known as a savior of sorts. But she's not after human souls. She runs the German Shepherd Rescue, a nonprofit, no-kill facility in Burbank, where unwanted or neglected German shepherds are cared for and nursed back to health until they can be adopted by a family that will love them. Although a dog lover since her childhood in New Jersey, Konosky did not set out to become an animal advocate.

The indefatigable Jordi Savall has taken on many roles over the years: viola da gamba virtuoso, conductor, scholar, entrepreneur, free thinker -- and now we should add "patriarch." Indeed, his current touring edition of Hesperion is almost entirely a family affair, early music's answer to other notable multigenerational touring clans like the Brubecks, the Romeros and the Jobims. Wait: Let's strike the term "early music."

It had been a long time since I volunteered to take part in a living Nativity tableau--not since the days when the Santa Claus Lane Parade in Hollywood included a church float with Mary, Joseph, the baby Jesus and the usual supporting cast. Back then--perhaps 25 years ago--as the float went by, Johnny Grant, Bill Welsh or whoever would announce to the crowd, "And now here's the real meaning of Christmas."

The timing of Sonia Cavallo's wedding at a church in an upscale parish Saturday night was, to say the least, unfortunate. An unruly crowd unhappy with the way her father, Economy Minister Domingo Cavallo, has been running things pelted the wedding party with boos, insults, rotten eggs and water bombs as its members entered the historic Basilica of Our Lady of Pilar.
