There can be moments of stress in my line of work. Over the years, I've had slashed tires, bricks through my living room window and the computer has eaten some of my columns.But the single worst thing that can happen is to be yelled at over the telephone by an angry woman. Especially by an angry woman who really knows how to yell.Because I am mild-mannered and a gent, I can't yell back. So when an angry female yells, I am struck almost dumb and can do little more than mumble a few soothing words -- "Now, now, there, missy," or "Darlin', you're just tired."

WASHINGTON -- With his staff and friends having failed to quiet the furor over a week of White House gaffes, President Clinton took on a favored role yesterday to try to reassure Americans he is not a star-struck, image-obsessed politician who has lost touch with public sensibilities."

Bill Clinton's most acerbic critic and Hillary Clinton's best pal finally have found something they agree on: Reports of bad blood between them are ridiculous.A supposed rift between conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh and Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, friend of the Clintons and TV producer, came up on Mr. Limbaugh's TV show last week. During a lampoon of Earth Day, the host's "man in Washington" interviewed John Ritter, star of "Hearts Afire," which was created by Ms. Bloodworth-Thomason.

WASHINGTON -- It's hard to pinpoint the moment whe things began spinning out of control on the celebrity front.Was it when Michael Douglas eclipsed President Clinton at last weekend's White House Correspondents' Association dinner?Was it when George Stephanopoulos, the White House communications director, began dating Jennifer Grey, the actress who starred in the 1987 movie "Dirty Dancing"?Maybe it was simply when Barbra Streisand became as familiar a figure on the political scene as John McLaughlin, the carnivorous talk-show host.

At the start of tonight's "Barbara Walters Special" (10 o'clock, Channel 13--WJZ), Walters portentously announces that "Designing Women" star Delta Burke "breaks her silence" on a number of weighty issues.Burke has been called many things by her harshest critics, who also happen to be her producers and one of her co-stars, but "silent" is not one of them.In fact, it has been the refusal of the former Miss Florida to be either quiescent or acquiescent that has embroiled her in the nastiest war of words this side of the Persian Gulf.

A vote by former President Reagan for Bill Clinton fo president surely belongs in the wonders-never-cease department, but a top Clinton inaugural official insists that's what the Gipper did on Election Day."Use this only without attribution," the official told TV Guide for an article in the issue on newsstands today. "But remember when Clinton stopped to see Reagan [Nov. 27] and got those jelly beans? How friendly they were? Well, Reagan voted for Clinton. I have it on the highest authority."

Remember CBS' short-lived "Women of the House"? It was Linda Bloodworth-Thomason's misguided satire on the D.C. political scene starring Delta Burke as Congresswoman Suzanne Sugarbaker. It now appears that there were three episodes that never made the air (the show was canceled) and that dealt with violence to women. In an unusual deal with Lifetime, those episodes -- plus a "censored" fourth one -- will air on the cable channel Sept. 8.This must be great news for Ms. Bloodworth-Thomason, whose three shows hit the cutting-room floor because they were "message" programs decrying violence against women in television and at the movies.

Three marathons, one telethon, and still it seems like nothingthon.* "Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon" (continues 6 a.m.-6:30 p.m., Channel 2) -- Jerry Lewis, still at the helm of the TV fund-raising phenomenon he turned into an annual event and media institution, is planning to go the distance again, with help during this 29th annual telecast from Tony Bennett, Boyz II Men, Elayne Boosler, Larry King and others.* "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead" (8-10 p.m., Channel 45) -- This 1991 telemovie, starring Christina Applegate of "Married . . . With Children," is echoed, in a way, in another Fox series, the family drama "Party of Five," which premieres a week from tonight.

Saying she is "not stupid enough to be vindictive," "Designing Women" producer Linda Bloodworth-Thomason vowed Tuesday to reconsider a season-opening script replete with jabs at Suzanne Sugarbaker, the character played by Delta Burke, who left the show after a power struggle with the producers.A handful of TV critics who attended the filming of the episode last week in Hollywood came away with the impression that Ms. Bloodworth-Thomason, who wrote the script, was trying to pour salt on Ms. Burke's wound.
