Cutting pizzas out of his diet hasn't helped Sid Fernandez pitch any better in 1995.Trying on a leaner, meaner attitude hasn't worked, either.But having Kato Kaelin sitting right behind home plate last night at Camden Yards almost worked.At least Sid was the best pitcher the Orioles had last night, and how often can you say that?True, the other four Orioles pitchers gave up 93 runs to the Oakland A's, or close to that many, once Sid left in the sixth inning. But Sid was still vastly improved.

Fresh on the heels of his leading-man debut as a surprised daddy Ben in the hit comedy Knocked Up, Seth Rogen has entered a deal to write and likely star in The Green Hornet for Columbia Pictures. The studio announced in March that it had optioned the rights to the superhero property that follows the adventures of Britt Reid. A wealthy publisher of the Daily Sentinel by day, Reid roams as a masked crime fighter by night, dedicated to protecting the lives and rights of the city's citizens.

Hey, Kato, your 15 minutes are up. We haven't exactly been keeping count, but it seems like forever already -- television cameos, talk shows and extensive coverage in Entertainment Weekly. Be gone, and take Gennifer Flowers with you.Andy Warhol was kidding, but he was right. If he were alive today, he'd feel like some Pop Art Nostradamus. Picture him sitting at his television: the white hair, the stick figure sheathed in black leather, amused to see his prophecy about fame quoted once again, most recently as part of David Letterman's Top Ten List.

A former assistant to Broadcom Corp. co-founder Henry T. Nicholas III says in a lawsuit that the high-tech billionaire required him to oversee supplies of cocaine and other drugs, pay prostitutes from a $10,000 "petty cash" fund and conceal the "extracurricular activities" from his wife and others. In their own legal filings, Nicholas' attorneys accuse Kenji Kato of making the accusations as part of an attempt to extort $9 million from Nicholas. "These absurd allegations seem to be intended to disrupt the principal focus of my work, post-retirement, which would be in criminal justice and medical research," said Nicholas, who stepped down from Broadcom, a chip manufacturer, in January 2003.

A ripple of excitement swept through the nation's hairstyling salons Tuesday. Kato was on the witness stand.As I've mentioned in the past, the O.J. Simpson trial will be remembered for having the most spectacular hair in the history of criminal law.And of all the well-coiffed witnesses, lawyers and cops, it is the shaggy noggin of Kato, the faithful house guest, that fascinates the stylists the most.Michael Schultz of Chicago's Blair Gordon Salon is an avid Kato watcher. He says:"God only knows what's going on in that hair.

The talk on Court TV these days is not about O. J.'s dark moods.It's about Kato's dark roots.In fact, the whole Kato hair thing has pretty much upstaged the trial, which is possibly what Kato had in mind.For certain people -- O. J. would be one example -- the trial is a life-and-death situation.L For aspiring actor Kato, though, it's more like an audition.Right now, his agent (big-timer Lee Solters, who also represents Michael Jackson and Michael Jackson's hair) is probably putting together the tapes and sending them off to producers and directors and whoever handles Clairol's advertising account.

Here's what I've learned so far while watching the O. J. Simpson hearing.The limo driver who took Simpson to the airport looks a little like Kenneth Branagh.Kato, the caretaker/actor, has been in at least one movie -- "Cyborg 3." Unfortunately, like many of you, I gave up on the "Cyborg" opus after just one sequel.Marcia Clark, the prosecutor, used to be a dancer.Gerald Uelmen, the backup lawyer, used to be Judge Kathleen Kennedy-Powell's law professor.One of the L.A. detectives to take the stand counts RomanPolanski among his celebrity arrests.

The studio audience appeared to agree with the idea tossed out by the show's chirpy hostess. Yes, they the audience found Kato the house guest guilty of being an opportunist.That's the way it goes in the O.J. Simpson trial. A witness is grilled by Marcia Clark or Johnnie Cochran in the morning, and before the sun goes down, some talk show holds its own trial and decides whether the witness was slippery, honest, a racist or a klutz.Because Kato aspires to be an actor, it was decided that he was trying to exploit his sudden fame as a witness to seek even more fame in the movies or TV. That meant he was engaging in opportunism.

ATLANTA -- A river runs through it.In this landlocked city, the "river" is a thin, blue line, a 26.2-mile streak of paint marking the route that the world's top marathoners will follow when the Olympic Games that begin tonight head toward the finish line in their event.It is a route that takes them from the cradle of the civil rights movement to the lingering ghosts of the Civil War. It leads past both classically Southern, white-columned homes and glassy, nouveau Southern skyscrapers. There are stretches where you could be nowhere else in the world, and others that plunk you in generic Starbucksville.

A look at Kato Kaelin's diary:Monday, 10 a.m. -- My agent called today. And he's like: "I got you this gig, OK? It's this Poultry Festival in Kansas City. You dress up in this chicken costume, sign some autographs, pose )) for a few pictures. Two hours, max. It's good money, Kato."And I'm like: "No way! You want me to do that biker bar where the smoke shoots from the stage and the waitresses balance tequila shooters on their chests, fine. But I'm not dressing up in some stupid chicken costume."

The hundreds of curiosity-seekers who went to see Brian "Kato" Kaelin on the Byrd, Marc & Lopez Morning Show on WIYY-FM (97.9) Monday generated more than $2,000 for the WBAL Radio Kid's Campaign.The former houseguest of O. J. Simpson's, whose witness-stand appearances were his ticket for coast-to-coast celebrity appearances, signed autographs during his on-air appearances at the Baja Beach Club, on T-shirts selling for $20 or $5 postcards printed by the station.The Kid's Campaign annually seeks donations of coats and shoes for needy children.

Some four hours into the early morning gig, his famously frazzled mop even more Oster-ized than usual and his voice fading faster than a West Coast tan taken east, Kato Kaelin was given a couple of bottles of juice. One grapefruit, one orange.He didn't touch the O.J.Kato -- does even Marcia Clark call him "Mr. Kaelin?" -- apparently was serious about his self-imposed moratorium yesterday on any form of O.J. crossing his lips. In Baltimore to appear on 98 Rock's morning show, the former Simpson houseguest refused to talk about the murders that catapulted him into stardom.

Also for Robert Shapiro, Court TV, "Hard Copy" and Kato.My mother is gavel-to-gavel obsessed with O.J. She's not alone.Or maybe you missed the story on the O.J. special-edition trading cards, which were signed, dated and numbered by him while in prison. He signed 300 of the cards at $200 a pop. Now, they're selling for thousands.

Hermosa Beach, Calif. -- The idea of Kato Kaelin doing a stand-up comedy routine is funnier than his actually doing it.America's Houseguest, a less-than-conclusive witness in the O. J. Simpson trial, will open for veteran comic Louie Anderson in June in Las Vegas. He recently tested some of his material before a live audience for only the fourth time in his life. In the process, his Comedy and Magic Club appearance became the most bizarre collision between real life and pop culture since Bill Clinton wailed away on saxophone on "The Arsenio Hall Show."
