Janet Jackson's Velvet Rope Tour, which came to Camden's Waterfront Entertainment Centre on Wednesday, must have looked awesome in its computer-design phase. A marvel of precision, it had the eerie, robotic aura of a video game. A troupe of dancers moved in lockstep, like a phalanx of marching insects. The pyrotechnics detonated at all the right, surprising moments. The stylized stage sets, filled with inflatable toys and video screens, suggested everything from a child's nursery to a swing-era street scene.

O CALEDONIA Fiction. By Elspeth Barker Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. 18.95 Janet is a bookish, precocious and unappealing child - destined, perhaps, to compose evocative poetry or gothic novels. But we shall never know, for, as we learn on the first page of Elspeth Barker's remarkable first novel, Janet dies young.

It's been a stormy romance. To say the least. For as long as we've known them, New York firefighter Tommy Gavin and his wife, Janet, have been rabidly scratching and clawing at each other on FX's gritty drama series Rescue Me . You'd think at some point one of them would get weary of the constant squabbling and simply walk away. "Given their family backgrounds, I think that would be considered a failure," says Andrea Roth, who plays the hardheaded Janet opposite Denis Leary as Tommy.

Sometimes, searching for the perfect house is like looking for the perfect mate: You meet, you court, you try to close the deal. In the case of Janet and Jim Bogorowski, patience and perseverance were the operative words. They were living in Upper Makefield when they had an epiphany about moving. "We were spending more time leaving Bucks County than staying in it," says Janet, a stay-at-home mother of four. They golfed at Huntingdon Valley Country Club, and their two older boys were attending La Salle College High School in Wyndmoor.

The Pride of Parnell Street at Act II Playhouse in Ambler is a love story. Like so many Irish plays, it's told in monologues, making it seem more like storytelling than like conventional, dialogic theater. Sebastian Barry's couple, Janet (Kittson O'Neill) and Joe (David Whalen), live a rough, tough, hardscrabble life, financed entirely by robbery, punctuated by violence. So it's surprising only to Janet when Joe beats her up after the Irish football team loses an important match.

In a statement to "Entertainment Tonight," the newlyweds said: "The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. " She's no doubt hoping that the third time will be the charm.

It's unclear exactly how long Janet, youngest of the talented Jackson clan, has been hitched this time around.

DEAR ABBY: I am in my late 30s and have been dating "Rick" for six years. The problem is his daughter, "Janet. " We used to get along, but now she hates me. She calls me awful names and says she wishes I would go away. I recently asked Rick to marry me. Now Janet says I am "desperate" and she refuses to talk to either of us. I don't know what to say to her. I'm appalled at her attitude toward me, the language she uses and the things she's saying about me to her friends on the Internet.
