She's in-demand as an actress, starring on and off-Broadway, also appearing on TV and the big screen.

It's about Stern's shoe and shopping obsession, what fuels it, and some of the colorful characters who share her addiction.

FOX's Jane Metzler talks with this "Buffalo Gal" about what she's doing since their paths first crossed, in the freshman dorm at Northwestern University, some of their famous fellow students, and whether she followed the unique advice the late "Ben Hur" star Charlton Heston passed along when he gave the commencement address at their college graduation.
