The comeback narrative is well-trodden pop-music territory: Disappear from public consciousness once the hits stop coming, toil away in the studio quietly for an extended period and then surprise everyone with a major splash of new material. In the rare case you do it right - like say, Justin Timberlake - chart domination can follow. But for countless others, the comeback trail is less forgiving.

Brandy - Special Delivery, MTV's newest reality show documenting the daily life of R&B singer Brandy, proves one thing for sure: The Osbournes made it look a lot easier than it is. Brandy is MTV's effort to capitalize on the unexpected blockbuster success of The Osbournes. But there's a big difference between a camera-conscious 20-something young woman who's eight months pregnant and the foul-mouthed splendor of the first family of heavy metal rock. One thing that Brandy and her self-conscious clan - husband Robert Smith, her manager mother, her interior decorator and someone named "Drain" - need to learn is the value of "show" over "tell."

Mixed wild mushrooms and brandy make an elegantly simple accompaniment for a delicate white fish such as red snapper, orange roughy or even farm-raised catfish. While fresh mushrooms are wonderful, you can get the same earthy flavor and save money if you use dried mushrooms and rehydrate them.Roast vegetables in the oven while the fish is being prepared on the stove. Heat oven to 450 degrees and cut potatoes, eggplant and tomatoes into 1 1/2 -inch cubes. Douse with olive oil and salt. Roast the potatoes for 5 minutes, then add the eggplant and bake potatoes and eggplant together for 5 minutes, then add the tomatoes and roast a final 5 minutes.

True Sensation beat three other Maryland-bred fillies and mares in yesterday's $75,000 All Brandy Stakes. The race, which was originally scheduled for the turf, was contested in pouring rain and over the muddy main track at Pimlico Race Course. A Queen's Smile, the morning-line favorite, and two others were scratched after the race was switched. River Cruise spurted to the front from her outside post and opened a four-length lead down the backstretch. As GraceBay and Sweep Up slipped farther behind, only jockey Erick Rodriguez and True Sensation had a chance to deny victory from the front-runner.

Better get it together, because Ken is excited. Adrienne is throwing a party of her own, launching a new vodka line called "Zing," primarily their red velvet-flavored version. This looks like a Wonderland nightmare - complete with half-naked people pretending to be statues…until they start gyrating.
