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.

A SIMPLE WORD played a big role in Christine Parker's long life: Yes. She said yes when people asked for help, yes to invitations, and yes to travel and to singing every day.

She wasn't resumé-building or trying to get into a good school, she was just trying to do the right thing.

Sometimes, searching for the perfect house is like looking for the perfect mate: You meet, you court, you try to close the deal.

"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.

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen still wants to raise interest rates, but won't boost the price of money just yet.

She and her Federal Open Market Committee colleagues don't think weak hiring reports for May and April mean the economy is slowing.

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