Paige is giving an Academy Awards dinner Monday night at Mortimer's and guess who will be there -- Ken Noland!!! Along with Mary and Mike Wallace, Victor Skrebneski, Brendan Gill, Michael Graves with Kim Armour, Marilyn and Don Hewitt, Anne Cox Chambers, Linda and Arthur Carter, Betsy and Walter Cronkite, Buffy and Bill Cafritz, who are taking the train from Washington, and a restaurantful of others.
Nicollette Sheridan, the love-them-and-leave-them siren who bolted from Harry Hamlin, leaving him with a broken heart, for the charms and arms of Michael Bolton, may be more than just good friends with Jon Peters, the producer Barbra Streisand started on his way from hairdresser to Hollywood big shot years ago. Jon and Nicollette were in Honolulu together on a recent holiday, and no one thinks they went there to surfboard. Others contend that Jon, not averse to multiple choice, is still with the beautiful blonde model Vendela. Still others insist Nicollette left Michael B. because he has more hair than she does. They can be so hateful in Hollywood.
On the other hand, Virginia Madsen and Antonio Sabato have no plans to marry, even though Virg is pregnant. By Antonio, of course. Of course they could change their minds any minute, but just now they're saying NO wedding.
Alec Baldwin is set for "Heaven's Prisoners," which begins shooting in Louisiana in May. Phil Joanou of the "State of Grace" Joanous will direct. Alec and Kim Basinger, who have not had a holiday in years, had to cancel their planned vacation to Japan and the Caribbean because Kim will be filming that "Ready-to-Wear" movie for the next three months. Maybe Alec decided that with so much time on his hands without the pleasure of Kim's company, it might be better to keep busy. What is it they say about idle hands?
