Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, February 20, 1997 AA 1 e Jill Jackson's Hollywood Report e HOLLYWOOD ... Not everyone knew too much about Tom Sizemore. He was in "Devil in a Blue Dress," "Natural Born Kill- ers," "Wyatt Earp," and several other mov- ies. On TV, he was in "China Beach." And now he" s in Paramount Pictures' "The Relic" with Penelope Ann Miller. BUT. When he was arrested and jailed in West Hollywood for spousal abuse, and then re- leased on $50,000 bail, his name rang out loud and clear on TV, radio and in print. Now every- b(v,.l y knows whoTom Sizemore is and even though the publicity was bad, Paramount is reaping the benefits with big bucks at the box office. Aside to Audrey S. of Butte, Montana: Yours is a dif- ficult question. It's hard to tell about the on-again, off-again romances of the younger stars, because they keep very much to themselves and don't make those public appearances like the "glamour kids" of yore. As far as I know, Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConnaughey are still together. As for marriage plans, I'm sure your guess is as good as mine. Their agents aren't talking, their publicists aren't talking and THEY aren't talking! And believe me. I'VE ASKED! How many femmes admit to being 65? Elizabeth Taylor not only admitted, but as you know, celebrated nationwide. And yes. Of course, there have been nips and tucks to take away the ravages of time. Matter of fact, it was told to me that one facial surgeon was l(nown to say he was petrified about working on one of the most beautiful faces in the world. He has done an excellent job. Happy belated birthday to Elizabeth Taylor Hilton Wilding Todd Fisher Burton Warner Burton Fortensky. (I'm not sure that's the proper order, but they're all there!) LOTSA' BITS 'N' PIECES: Stood next to Sally Kellerman while paying for a hyacinth plant at Mordigan's Nursery. Looked like she was getting ready for some serious gardening, what with all the gardenia bushes, ferns, and etc., she was buying. And speaking of looks, the lady looked just great. Glowing skin, trim figure and a great smile ... Add the late Sheldon Leonard's name to the list ofshowbiz folk who' ve earned a Phi Beta Kappa key ... Drew Barrymore isn't the only thespian offspring of the late, great acting clan. Her half-brother John Barrymore III has several TV and movie cred- its. Hopefully, his career will take off too ... Romantic song- ster Clay Crosby's debut album is titled "Moonburn _ Songs of the 1930s Movie Crooners." Crosby has been appearing at the Gardenia Restaurant and Lounge in Hollywood... When- ever I see something wonderful by or about Steven Spielberg, I think back to 1976 when I was President of the Hollywood Women's Press Club. He had just completed "Jaws." He was guest speaker at a luncheon and sat on my right. He was a very nervous young tyro then and when the time came for him to get up and speak, he'd bitten his nails to the quick. We're all very proud of Steven's magnificent body of work, but also for his many charitable generosities ... Wanna bet there will be a movie or a miniseries about the murder of a child beauty queen sooner than you can blink?... Nobody works harder at promot- ing a pic or TV pic than Tom Selleck. After weeks of talking about "Saber River," he's back in New York winding "In and Out" with Kevin Kline. Then it's back to the ranch for a while with Jillie and Hannah ... And a farewell to my colleague, Theo Wilson, one of the great court reporters. Theo's book, "Headline Jus- tice: Inside the Courtroom _ The Country's Most Controversial Trials," had just hit the stalls. After 10 years of working on it, she was scheduled for book signings, parties and inter- views. It was to be wonderful. Instead, the night she was to appear with Tom Snyder, she com- plained of feelingill, was i'ushed to the hospital where she died of a cerebral hemorrhage. We'll miss you, Theo. 4 WDIV MBC 5 KVVU FOX 7  ABC 8  KL CB5 13 KTNV ABC 1. What is a balk in baseball? 2. What constitutes a forfeit in baseball? 3.

Entert_ain___m_gent Extra by Evelyn Ludvigson Q. Our family has been praying for the Bill Cosby family over the tragic mur- der of their son, Ennis. In talking about the Cosbys, one of my neph- ews said he believes Bill has a daughter who was married or engaged to the fighter, Mike Tyson. Is this true? And if, so, why hasn't there been any men- tion of it in the press? Jacklyn B. A. One of Bill's daugh- ters had reportedly told her father that Tyson had come on to her, and when she re- sisted, he persisted. She fi- nally got away from him. How Bill handled his daughter's complaint against Iron Mike was never completely reported. How- ever, I understand from sources that Mike got the message ! That is about as close as any of the Cosby daughters has ever gotten to Mike Tyson. Q. A few weeks ago, I saw a movie called "Hairspray" and I swear, the young girl who starred in it was credited as Ricki Lake. She was very heavy, but there was a resem- blance. Was it the same girl? Dina H. A. It was. That was Ricki in her rather heavy years. She had had a weight prob- lem since childhood, and to her credit, she worked hard to bring her weight down. She continued to watch her weight even during her preg- nancy. She says she intends to make sure no ounce of fat that wasn't there before the baby was conceived, will stay on after the baby is de- livered. Incidentally, the part of the warm, wonderful _ and quite heavy _ mother in "Hairspray" was played by the very talented Divine, one of the great female imper- sonators. He once said, "I love women and when I play a woman, I do it with re- spect and affection." Q. Is Stacey Keach married to Jane Seymour? I say he isn't, but my sister is willing to bet that he is. Please answer this letter if you can. Carolanne A. A. You haven't said what the terms of the bet are. Please write back and let me know. Meanwhile, pre- pare to collect because you win. Seymour ("Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman") is mar- ried to Stacey's brother, James. Q. I was really moved by the movie, "Dead Man Walking" with Susan Sarandon. Is she related to the actor, Christopher Saradon? Also, is it true there'll be a sequel to the movie? Glenna G. A. Susan is the ex-wife of actor Chris Sarandon. There is no definite word on a follow-up film. Q. Is the country star Shania Twain related to the writer, Mark Twain? Patricia L. A. Probably not. Re- member, Twain is a pen name for the author whose real name is Samuel Clemens. Q. I know that Rosie O'Donnell has a young son. However, I'm curi- ous about something. Who is the father of the boy? Rosie never talks about a daddy. Liz C. A. Rosie's son, Parker, is adopted. Rosie has said that when she reached a cer- tain age, she realized she really wanted to be a mother. Thus, son Parker came into her life. However, don't look for Parker to make an appearance on Morn' s show anytime soon. Rosie prefers her son stay out of the lime- light for now. Have a question?
