If you were looking to see more of Bo Derek - the actress and sex symbol who was ubiquitous in the 1970s but nowhere to be found by the mid-1980s - take heart. Starting tonight, you'll be able to see her every night of the workweek and Saturdays, too. Derek will star in a drama series that launches tonight on MyNetworkTV, a network that emerged when struggling networks WB and UPN combinedinto CW. The series, Fashion House (a sneak peek of the show was to air last night at 8:30), is a first for American television.

I just took columnist Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s "test" and was not in the least surprised to find that I am a true liberal ( "Unsure of your affiliation? Take this test," Dec. 22). In fact, I found myself wondering how anyone could take the test and find that they are a conservative. But the one question that gave me a real dilemma - a preference for Jane Fonda or Bo Derek, two beautiful women from my era - I was not able to decide. Does that make me "middle of the road" in at least one area?

PHILADELPHIA - This year's Republican mandate: to officially get jiggy wit it. An aim of the convention, as the Republicans load the line-up with all manner of entertainers, is to get those celebrities to rub their hipness off on the party. Hence, the break-dancers in tight shirts, the R&B singer in leather pants and the anticipated arrival of Bo Derek - not running toward the camera in a bikini and cornrows, but baring Republican skin nonetheless. When television viewers tune in tonight and see Chaka Khan busting some moves from the convention stage, they will, the Republicans hope, feel that George W. Bush and his party are the voter-friendly choice.

PASADENA, Calif. - It's the NBC "Carousel of Stars" dinner, and I'm seated at a table with Bo Derek and Zalman King, star and executive producer, respectively, of "Wind on Water," a bizarre new drama series for fall.The show is set in Hawaii and stars Derek as the matriarch of a cattle-ranching, surfboard-racing clan of beautiful people. Lee Horsley - may the good Lord have mercy on our souls - plays the patriarch of a rival family of land developers.King is next to me; Derek is across the table.

Imagine everyone's delight, as we flip through the pages of the politics-as-pop culture magazine BEGIN ITAL George, END ITAL to find ourselves staring at the alleged actress Bo Derek and, not to be coy, some of her endearing young charms.She's wearing a jacket opened to her navel, with nothing above the navel or beneath the jacket. She's wearing her hair in braids, the way she did in "10," the movie in which she was costumed in her birthday suit and romped sexually with a man not specifically her husband.

WHEN THE NEWS BROKE LAST WEEK that Michelle Pfeiffer is not perfect, a collective sigh of relief was heard from women everywhere."Did you read they spent $1,525 to retouch her photograph on the cover of Esquire?" a friend asked, not even trying to disguise the pleasure such news gave her.I started to answer but a male colleague overheard the remark and jumped right in: "Yeah, I couldn't believe it. I had three calls from women who told me they were just so happy to know that Michelle Pfeiffer -- the image of perfection -- isn't perfect."

Remember Bo Derek's braids in "10"? Dorothy Hamill's "wedge" cut, and the flurry of copycat hairstyles it generated? Farrah Fawcett's tousled, multilayered mane?Well, don't be surprised if you start hearing women asking their hairstylists for "Meg Ryan hair."Starring in "Prelude to a Kiss" with Alec Baldwin, Meg as Rita plays a pretty, perky, sometimes zany, serious, ethereal lead in the movie.Though she does wear a memorable wedding gown, it's her hair that catches the eye. Long, blond, wavy, sometimes a bit crimped, other times hanging in long tendrils or pushed up and back loosely, Meg has that kind of "important" hair that some young women will lust after.
