The on dit goes that Barbra Streisand had hoped to join the world's three greatest tenors, Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras, in song in Los Angeles at the closing ceremonies of World Cup soccer, but it was not to be -- and not for lack of Streisand's trying. You see, Domingo and Carreras have a relationship with Diana Ross (remember the Christmas album they made in Vienna two years ago?), and Barbra is due to make a video and an album with Pavarotti, who, incidentally, was all for the idea of the foursome trilling away in a single body. (Not his). Maybe the plot sounds as complicated as "The Marriage of Figaro," but the bottom line is the world will get the three greatest tenors all by their lonesomes with no "Susanna."

The on dit in Europe has the Iglesias family, Julio and his pretty daughter, Chabeli, battling the gossips. "Julio is vexed and vigorously denying reports that he has a form of skin cancer," goes the story, and Chabeli is on a second honeymoon with her husband, Ricardo Bofill, and irate over rumors their marriage is shaky. It takes a long, long time -- maybe forever -- to realize that when you taste fame, sometimes it's bitter. End of moral.

But let's look at the light side. The continental crowd at the River Cafe says Julio is singing his love songs to a beautiful young blonde called Miranda something, his new romance. Although they didn't seem to know her last name, they were sure that she's 22 and that she's already taken him home to meet the folks in Amsterdam. Wonder where they read that. Of course, right now he's in the U.S. meeting the folks in America.

Also fodder for tattle-tales is the news that Margaret Thatcher's son Mark, reportedly plagued by big problems in both his marriage and his business, is being consoled by Debbie Milner, an attractive, dark-haired employee at his Houston-based company. "She idolizes him," says one big mouth. "She follows him like a puppy dog." Sit.
