These are the Nineties, they keep reminding us, so take it with a slow roll and no more excessive excess. Among those taking the advice seriously are Princess Maria Pia di Savoia and Prince Michel de Bourbon-Parme,...

Kim Basinger, in New York on a break from filming "Pret-a-Porter" in Paris, was up at Elaine's where all around her the gossip was flying that the tension on the Paris set between Lauren Bacall and Danny Aiello and Lauren Bacall and Steven Rea has not let up. Better than boredom every day.

It might be a trifle tacky -- so what? -- but if you added up the net worth of the folk at Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg's breakfast for Hillary Clinton at their Pacific Palisades house just the other day, you could come up with a total of $5 billion. In Hollywood especially, they just love to talk about other people's money, hoping that maybe this year the other people don't have as much as they had last year. Schaudenfreude and all that.

Anyhow, among the 70 people listening to Mrs. Clinton discuss child health care reform were Mike Ovitz, David Geffen, Jane and Michael Eisner, Lew Wasserman, Candice Bergen and Whoopi Goldberg and her boyfriend. You will be tickled to know that the Spielbergs live across the street from Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise and that they had their lawn tented for the affair. Those are the salient facts, except for this little tidbit. When Lew Wasserman, the perennial Hollywood powerperson, introduced himself as Lew Wasserman to Whoopi's boyfriend, the boyfriend said, "Hi, I'm Lyle." And you just stay that way, Lyle.

Robert Wolders, husband of the late Merle Oberon, and the love of Audrey Hepburn's life, is setting up the Audrey Hepburn Foundation with Audrey's two sons, Sean Ferrer, who lives in California with his wife who is expecting a child later this year, and Luca Dotti, who works as an architect in Milan. Rob Wolders still mourns Audrey, as do many of her friends, including Hubert de Givenchy, who is the first to say we will never see her like again.
