You've got questions. Andy's got answers.

HOW DOES TONY DANZA "PREPARE" FOR HIS SHOW?

If you're walking down Columbus Avenue around 9 am and hear what you think is a junior high band rehearsal, reboot and think again. It's actually Tony Danza getting revved up for his show. The talk show sensation plays the trumpet in his office every morning!

WHY DO MODELS OFTEN WALK LIKE THEY CAN'T?

I have no clue but I ask designers, bookers, agents, and janitors at 30 Rock this question all the time and nobody seems to have an answer. Many people refuse to notice or acknowledge that most runway models have the grace of a fawn. (I don't think fawn are very graceful, do you?)

WHICH DIVA WILL BEST PROVIDE MAXIMUM CARDIO BURN?

I've worked on the answer to this question for many years. Cher certainly has her moments and I went through a deep "All or Nothing" moment in the mid-90s when I would've given this to the former Mrs. Bono. Madonna is Madonna and I am especially looking forward to the Pet Shop Boys remix of "Sorry" which hits stores on Feb 28 (Feb 20 in the UK). But the Diva who will consistently motivate, give you energy, light a fire in your belly, make you smile and dance and run your tail off is none other than Whitney Houston. Set up an extended Whitney playlist on your Ipod and watch the pounds drop off!

SPEAKING OF FITNESS, HERE'S A VERY LOCAL, BUT BURNING, QUESTION FOR NYC/WEST VILLAGE RESIDENTS:

WHEN WILL THE VERY OLD MAN WHO WORKS OUT AT THE GREENWICH AVENUE EQUINOX FIGURE OUT THAT HE WEARS HIS TANK TOPS BACKWARDS?

I believe that this spunky exer-holic will perhaps not ever realize that his scooped-back is meant to cover his front and that his T-shaped back is now acting as some sort of lift-and-separate apparatus currently working overtime to manage his chesty business.
