Answer to Yesterday’s Trivia Question:  Everyone knows Brenda Leigh Johnson on The Closer has a thing for chocolate.  What other classic TV detective had a similar addiction, knowing if left unchecked she could easily “pig out” and gain 50 lbs?  LAURA HOLT suffered THE HOLT CURSE on Remington Steele Kudos to: Jonathan Griffith-HBO/NY

Unreturnable because all you ever get back is another box of chocolates. So you’re stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there’s nothing else left to eat.”     (Email [email protected] with your answer and be sure to include your name, company, city and time zone.
