Stephanopoulos accepts teaching post at Columbia U.

George Stephanopoulos, one of President Clinton's closest advisers, has decided to teach at Columbia University after leaving the White House early next year, an official said yesterday.

Stephanopoulos, whose service to Clinton dates to the 1992 campaign, made it known before Clinton's re-election that he would not serve in a second term.

Stephanopoulos, 35, started at the White House as communications director. He soon moved out of the spotlight to an office next to the Oval Office and continued as one of the president's most trusted aides.

An administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the university was expected to announce the hiring this week. Stephanopoulos is a Columbia graduate.

A reunion tour for Hall and Stones singer Jagger

Jerry Hall has made up with Mick Jagger, the Daily Telegraph reported yesterday.

"Mick has moved back into the family home," the newspaper quoted a friend as saying. "There were problems but they have now been ironed out."

A London tabloid, The Sun, reported in October that Ms. Hall, 40, had asked Jagger, 53-year-old lead singer of the Rolling Stones, for a divorce, furious at her husband's reported liaisons with "Pulp Fiction" star Uma Thurman and Czech model Jana Rajich.

Tommy Lee says he's sober, ready to fix failing marriage

In an interview with Britain's Independent Radio News broadcast yesterday, Tommy Lee, the drummer of the rock group Motley Crue, said he decided to give up drinking because it was destroying him.

"I decided to hang on to a beautiful family and career. I had a choice, I could have drunk myself right into nowhere. I made the choice," 33-year-old Lee said.

"I have been sober for about 13 or 14 days now. Pamela was beautiful, she didn't give me any sort of ultimatum, I was just hanging on."

Pamela Anderson, one of the stars of the "Baywatch" television series, reunited with Lee last week after filing for divorce to end their stormy 21-month marriage. Lee said the divorce papers will be annulled this week.

Son of Gould, Streisand comes out with a short film

The son of Barbra Streisand and Elliott Gould has made his first movie, but while the critics are out on the quality of the 15-minute short, they are generally applauding Jason Gould's courage.

Variety's Buzz reports the younger Gould wrote, directed, produced and starred in the short about the son of two famous actors who learns, while in a grocery store line, that he's been outed. A supermarket tabloid features a story that the famous son has married a male model. The rest of the short has the main character explaining his situation to his parents.

The cast includes Gould's real-life dad Elliott, as well as Christina Crawford, daughter of actress Joan and author of the tell-all "Mommie Dearest."
