Q&A: Xxxxxxxxx hed here Q&A: What is the marital status of the women of 'NCIS'?

'NCIS' ladies have leading men

My wife and I and many of our neighbors watch NCIS and not one of us has ever seen a word about the marital status of Cote de Pablo or Pauley Perrette.

De Pablo, who plays Ziva on the long-running CBS series, has long been in a relationship with actor Diego Serrano. She told Prevention magazine a couple of years ago that they balance each other. "My partner's idea of fun is to dress up, get in the car, pump the music, go clubbing. I could not be further away from that. I love being at home, having friends over," she said.

Perrette, who plays Abby, was married to musician Coyote Shivers, leading to a nightmare that is ongoing. They split in 2004 and Perrette later accused Shivers of stalking and harassing her — claims also made against Shivers by another ex-wife, Bebe Buell, according to a FoxNews.com report in 2006. While Shivers has denied the charges and posted his own accusations against Perrette, she has had a restraining order against Shivers since their breakup. In early April, according to TMZ, he was charged with violating the order — while on probation for sending Perrette's lawyer harassing emails.

But Perrette may yet find happiness. In December, she announced her engagement to a former British marine, Thomas Arklie. But she has reportedly said they will not marry until California overturns its law banning gay marriage; Perrette has called the law unjust.

Eddie of 'Frasier' made a bundle

How much did the Jack Russell terrier who played the part of Eddie on Frasier make per episode?

Moose, the terrier that played Eddie on the Kelsey Grammer sitcom for most of its run, reportedly made more than $10,000 per episode in his prime and had an accumulated fortune of $3.2 million. When Moose died in 2006, the BBC noted that at one point, he was getting more fan mail than the human stars on the show. Moose's son Enzo would at times double for Moose and, after Moose retired, Enzo succeeded him. Enzo died in 2010.

So long 'Desperate Housewives'

I watched Desperate Housewives reruns on Lifetime and sort of got caught up with the first three-four years that I didn't watch on ABC, but I know they left out episodes. Now it's off their schedule altogether just when they were seeming to air the ones I didn't see before. Will it be back on Lifetime?

Lifetime has no plans to bring back Desperate Housewives reruns.

'The Glades' returns on June 3

Any information as to if or when The Glades will be returning?

The Glades, a detective series, will be back with a third season on A&E on June 3, from 9 to 10 p.m.
