Carolyne Roehm has always been noted for her wonderful taste, so when she finally does settle into her One Sutton Place apartment three months hence, it should be something to see. It will take that long for her to get the place in the shape she wants it. Mica Ertegun and Chessy Rayner of Mac II, interior designers to the rich and famous, will do the decorating.

Carolyne has moved -- or is in the process of moving -- from the beautiful Park Avenue duplex apartment she shared with billionaire financier Henry Kravis when their marriage was still intact. According to the divorce settlement, it is his to keep. Incidentally, that divorce becomes final at any moment, and that is when his friends say Henry will marry his new love, the Canadian economist Marie-Josee Drouin, and move into the apartment with her. He's besotted.

It had to happen. A roman a clef -- or maybe a roman de verre -- is in outline form on the philanthropic Bass family of Texas. Sinking her teeth into the story is the British writer Shirley Eskapa, whose novels sell like jellied eels in Britain. Her latest book, "Blood Relations," (St. Martin's Press) comes out in the U.S. in 1994.

Apparently, Shirley, a member of a rich and prominent London-based South African family, never met a Texan she didn't like, and Lone Star lore always has been a passionate interest. But then, so is Mideast intrigue, and that too will ripple through the pages. As Shirley has unlimited money for research, rest assured the digging will be deep. And still, it will all be pure fiction, with the usual disclaimer that the characters therein are but figments of the author's imagination. Sure, sure.

Although superstars Meryl Streep and Glenn Close have been professional rivals for years, you will see them together, sweet as pie, in the forthcoming Isabel Allende novel-into-film, "The House of the Spirits." They play sisters-in-law who bond to each other like blood sisters, which led to a feeling of mutual respect. "I did feel as if I were working with my very own sister," says Close. We're still waiting for Meryl's two cents.
