Victoria Hearst, the youngest of Randolph Hearst's three daughters--the others are Anne and Patty--has taken the plunge and moved from Beverly Hills to an East Side penthouse. The idea being to be close to her very serious boyfriend, the actor/director Robert Ginty, who is currently lecturing on film studies in New Haven, where he is a Yale Fellow. You all remember Bob Ginty. He co-starred in "The Paper Chase" and "Falcon Crest" TV series, among other acting stints. As for Vicky Hearst, she is an actress and dancer who speaks fluent Japanese and has a black belt in karate, speaking of accomplishments. She has appeared on Japanese TV and on the American soap opera, General Hospital. She met her match when she went to read for Bob Ginty's latest directorial effort, "A Woman of Desire," starring Robert Mitchum and Bo Derek. So anyhow, Vicky and Bob will spend Christmas with her mother, Catherine Hearst, in Los Angeles before flying off to her house in Telluride for New Year's. Sound good to you? Sounds good to me.
Will the acting Douglases, Kirk, pere, and Michael fils, finally do a movie together? Supposedly, Michael plans to announce it soon. The key word here is supposedly.
Is Lyle Lovett living up to his name in every way? Seemingly spending time with old flames between reunions with his dear wife, Julia Roberts, and supposedly in tears over his forays? The key words here are seemingly and supposedly.
Eddie Fisher, exultant over word that he's just sold his second book, tells all that it's a tell-all, somewhat scandalous, with all the dirty linen hung out to dry. Starring in print are such icons as Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, Connie Stevens and a gaggle of others he didn't get around to marrying. Eddie's first book was a bomb, some say because it was too clean. He didn't want to trash anybody. But that was then, and now's now. The key word here is money.
Carly Simon is currently at work on her newest album, as you surely must have heard somewhere. With Carly in the studio recently was Dirk Ziff--that's Dirk Ziff of the publishing Ziffs, who sold their empire to Ted Forstmann for a billion or so. Dirk wasn't there to romance the diva of pop, but rather to play backup on two of the new album's tracks. You should know that all this is supposed to be a big, big secret. The key question here is why--as in who gives a fig?
