News item: Kathie Lee Gifford's last appearance on "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee" will be on Friday. Dear Diary: Well, this is it! My final few days on the show! Then it's on to a new career: singing and acting! Hope there's nothing wrong with Reege, though. Today I said to him: "Well, I suppose I could stay. I mean, if you really want me to stay, I'll stay." He got so pale! Then the poor thing had to lie down. Gelman reacted the same way. Hope they're both OK. They'll always mean the world to me. Dear Diary: You know what makes me so sad?

ARLINGTON, Va. -- In our tabloid-obsessed nation, perhaps a few people wonder what happened to Kathie Lee Gifford, the highly successful co-host with Regis Philbin of the TV program Live With Regis and Kathie Lee, which morphed into Live With Regis and Kelly. She didn't turn to drugs or alcohol. She didn't retreat to a convent. She didn't divorce her husband. She is drawing on what once were called "traditional values" before such things became open to negotiation and personal interpretation.

MIAMI -- The last time the AFC won the Super Bowl, Barry Manilow was the "hot" entertainer chosen to sing the national anthem. So it's been a couple of years.Some serious football observers thought they detected destiny in this year's selection of Kathie Lee Gifford, the corniest choice since Manilow. Could this dose of schmaltz provide the antidote to some mysterious curse Barry had unwittingly laid on the AFC a year and a decade ago?All hopes were --ed when Kathie Lee was booed big-time upon being introduced in all her perkiness before kickoff Sunday at Joe Robbie Stadium.

AS KATHIE LEE GIFFORD tells it, a few weeks ago she was merely a talk-show entertainer and guilt-free celebrity endorser of products and services. Now, she says, she is chastened but eager to contribute to the fight to stamp out child labor around the world.Ms. Gifford's awakening came rather harshly, after negative publicity -- that dreaded bane of endorsers -- revealed that her line of clothing was being manufactured in sweat shops using child labor in Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua and New York City.

I am not going to do it. I am not going to cut up Kathie Lee Gifford for her performance -- if you want to call it that -- in Disney's "Model Behavior" tomorrow night on ABC. I do not shoot foul-smelling dead fish frozen stiff in a barrel. After seeing her Christmas specials and witnessing her career as a talk show host, why would anyone think she could act? And I am absolutely not going to comment on the cameo performance of her 9-year-old son, Cody, in the film. After 20 years of reviewing television, there's a lot of dried blood on the old pen. But I've never stooped to shredding a 9-year-old kid just because he has no discernible talent.

Sleeping with Schubert, by Bonnie Marson. Random House. 400 pages. $21.95 Where does creativity come from? Is it innate, in the genes? Or is it some kind of sacred visitation, unbidden, mysterious? The ancient Greeks believed the latter, that a daemon, or divine spirit, took over one's being and caused one to do extraordinary things. Things like, say, sit down at a piano in the women's shoe department at Nordstrom and suddenly start playing Schubert. That's the premise of a delightful, if hokey, novel by first-time author Bonnie Marson.

After 15 years alongside Regis Philbin in the morning talk-show arena, Kathie Lee Gifford stepped down yesterday, of her own volition and after a week of on-air tributes and farewells. She deserves to be saluted for two things above all else: her longevity in the job and her spontaneity on the job. The longevity, in and of itself, is impressive in a medium that chews up and spits out talent so quickly. Gifford co-hosted "Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee" since its national syndication debut in 1988 and shared hosting duties with Philbin on its WABC-TV New York precedessor, "The Morning Show," since 1985.

No question about it. "Survivor," the new CBS game/freak show, is a treat for viewers. Strangers tossed together in a riot of stink, hunger, greed and fear. We should all be glued to the set every Wednesday until the bitter end. But how great would it be if there were actual celebrities spending 39 days on that island, battling to be the last one standing in this cruelest of popularity contests? Very great. So we've drafted eight male and eight female celebrities employing the same philosophy CBS used with "Survivor" -- pick people who will quarrel and divide the viewing audience to make it more exciting.

Leno's sidewalk star recalls memories The location of Jay Leno's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has special memories for the "Tonight Show" host: It's where the TV talker was arrested twice early in his career. About 500 fans, including friend Arsenio Hall, gathered Thursday at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue to witness the unveiling of Leno's star, the 2,156th dedicated along the famous walkway. "People pretend they don't want this, but I won't pretend. I did want this.

One of the things that kept me going over the years was imagining a Kathie Lee Gifford interview with Saddam Hussein. ("Wow, you look great! Did you lose weight? C'mon, let's hear it for the Butcher of Baghdad!") Now, in the wake of her stunning on-air announcement yesterday that she's leaving "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee" when her contract expires this summer, the possibility of her chatting up the Iraqi strongman ("Is that a new sidearm? It's gorgeous!") seems remote. But a guy can dream, can't he?

Kathie Lee who? You know a presidential hopeful is in trouble when his last hope is the Maryland primary. Ah, the irony of it. McCain could beat Gore, who would beat Bush, who will beat McCain. It does not behoove politicians of the right to get conservative Catholics and fundamentalist Protestants angry at each other, or at them. It's New Zealand's cup now.
