Q: I enjoyed the film "Father of the Bride II," and I know it was based on an old movie. But I seem to recall a "Father of the Bride" TV series. Am I nuts? -B.L.

A: You may well be, B.L., but not because you think there was a "Father of the Bride" series. It was based on the 1950 film version, and starred Leon Ames, Ruth Warrick and Burt Metcalfe. It aired on CBS from Sept. 29, 1961, to Sept. 14, 1962.Q: I have two questions about the CBS show "Can't Hurry Love." One is about Mariska Hargitay, who plays Didi. Is she the daughter of Jayne Mansfield? And the other is about the actor who plays Roger. Is his brother Kenny on "Picket Fences"? -S.M.

A: Yes, and yes. Mariska Hargitay is the daughter of the late Jayne Mansfield and former Mr. Universe Mickey Hargitay. She was born in 1964, three years before her mother died in a car crash.

Louis Mandylor, who plays Roger, is indeed the brother of Costas Mandylor of "Picket Fences." Louis was a professional soccer player in Australia before following Costas to Hollywood.

Q: How old is David Hasselhoff of "Baywatch"? He looks good for his age, whatever it is. -K.O.

A: It's 43.
