The daughter of attorney Gloria Allred said her mother's cancellation of a news conference with one of Tiger Woods ' alleged mistresses could mean only one thing - she made a deal with the Woods camp. Lisa Bloom is Allred's daughter and a legal analyst for CBS. She said Friday on "The Early Show" that she worked with her mother for nine years and has never known her to cancel a news conference. Bloom says that can mean only that a confidential settlement was struck. Bloom estimated that such a settlement would be "at least a million dollars."

As one of two former prosecutors in the 1995 murder trial of then-police Sgt. James Kulbicki (" Ex-Baltimore Police sergeant granted new trial in murder of mistress," Aug. 27), I was outraged and incredulous to learn that the Court of Appeals of Maryland has, for the second time, reversed the conviction of a man who was tied by overwhelming evidence to the senseless and brutal execution of an innocent, young woman more than 19 years ago. Two juries have already found that on January 9, 1993, Gina Nueslein, just 22 years old at the time, was shot in the head by Sgt. Kulbicki for daring to ask him to provide child support for their 18-month old son. Evidence showed the police veteran abducted Nueslein and, as she sat in his pick-up truck, placed the barrel of his gun against her head and pulled the trigger.

"Mistress," which plays for the weekend at the Charles, i "The Player" without the edge -- that is to say, without the reason for existing. Edge is everything in these matters.It's an occasionally amusing look at film culture, which watches as a small-time producer and a wannabe director, probably too sensitive for the game, try to hustle three wealthy men into putting up some dough for their marginal production. Their central ploy is to offer the rich guys' mistresses fat parts in the film, whether it needs it or not.Of course that's only the first meaning in the title: the second is that art is the true mistress of the piece and our hero, the feckless Robert Wuhl playing the director, just isn't quite man enough to bed her. He tries, but those damned philistines just won't let him. The movie invites us to shudder at his victimization.

The state's highest court ordered a new trial Wednesday for a former Baltimore police sergeant convicted nearly two decades ago of murdering his young mistress - a ruling that could affect cases that relied on bullet testing used for decades until being debunked. Gina Nueslein, a 22-year-old clerk at a Royal Farms, became entangled with Sgt. James Kulbicki, who was 14 years her senior, in a relationship that soured as she sued him for child support. Twenty years later, Kulbicki has a chance to demonstrate the innocence he has maintained, but Nueslein's family must experience the ordeal of her death again.

I promise myself great satisfaction in completing all the projects of embellishment you planned to carry out here. When I walk in the garden, each tree and rose planted by your own hand is of interest to me. And I take pleasure in watching them grow and caring for them. I am writing this letter on the same table where I have seen Mama write so often -- I feel close to her. After all, every object here is dear to me because you used it.When Rosalie Stier Calvert wrote the above to her father, Henri Joseph Stier, on June 28, 1803, she had been mistress of Riversdale, a plantation house near Bladensburg, for less than a month.

"Franklin Delano Roosevelt died in his mistress's arms." - Gene Lyons, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette."Franklin Roosevelt died in his mistress's arms." - David Nyhan of the Boston Globe.And so it has been going, pundit after pundit, not to mention partisan apologists for Bill Clinton, in assessing his sordid affair with Monica Lewinsky. Such statements are meant to mitigate Clinton's shame, but they are, in fact, false, and one of the most obnoxious, odious comparisons I have ever heard.Roosevelt's private life was "Romeo and Juliet" compared to Clinton's "Deep Throat," romantic tragedy versus pornography.

Sherri Szeman, author of the award-winning first novel "The Kommandant's Mistress," is hard at work on a second novel. "It's about a family whose mother is diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I just finished typing the Living Will and the Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care," said Szeman. "The catch-22 is that the Living Will is only valid if you're of sound mind, and Alzheimer's patients are considered of unsound mind." Why Alzheimer's after the account of a Nazi concentration camp's commandant and the Jewish prisoner who becomes his victim and mistress?

"Raise the Red Lantern," opening today at the Charles, is a fable of political oppression so delicate and exquisite it seems more like a trip to the Walters' Hackerman House. It's so precious it makes you gasp in awe before it makes you cringe in pain.But it does make you cringe in pain.After "Red Sorghum" and "Jou Do," filmmaker Zhang Yimou has, by this time, cemented a world reputation as a pictorialist: his works are characteristically gorgeous before they are anything else and after they are everything else and "Raise the Red Lantern" is a dream of wispy symmetry and wintry gray chills and Chinese architecture so delicate and precise it stuns.

HOUSTON - Prosecutors rested their murder case against dentist Clara Harris yesterday after two final witnesses testified that they saw her run over her husband three times with her Mercedes-Benz outside a hotel. In contrast to the defense contention that orthodontist David Harris was run over only once, Oscar Torres and Chris Junco told jurors that the defendant circled to run over her husband repeatedly in the Nassau Bay Hilton parking lot. Torres and Junco said they were playing tennis on separate courts near the hotel when they heard a commotion and witnessed the fatal incident.

We pick up right where left off: at Kyle's failed dinner party, where Faye is tearing into Brandi for spreading some toxic gossip about the Maloofs. Brandi finally gets fed up and leaves the table. Of course, Kyle - who instigated this entire situation from beginning to end - is simply distraught that her lovely dinner party was ruined. Faye seems awfully pleased with herself, though. She did do a good job of inserting herself all up in the storyline. Milk that screen time! Lisa does not approve, and suggests that Kyle pretend to be a good host and try to stop Brandi before she leaves.

It's hard to shock people with stories of JFK's womanizing, but a new tell-all book by Mimi Alford may just do that. Alford says she was just 19 when she started a White House internship and began a sexual affair with president John F. Kennedy. She details the allegations in "Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy. " She told NBC's Meredith Vieira that after her freshman year at Wheaton College she lost her virginity to the president in the first lady's bedroom.

T he British are coming! The British are coming!" the lady in the silk dress yells, arms flapping as she careens through the crowd. "This can't be happening! The British are coming!" It's hard to blame Rosalie Stier Calvert for panicking. She'd only fled her war-torn native land for Maryland a few years before, after all, and now enemy troops are massing outside the gates of her new home. It's Aug. 24, 1814, date of the Battle of Bladensburg - or so it seems to 200 or so eighth-graders at Ellicott Mills Middle School.

Set in 1835 France, The Last Mistress turns the melodramatic pieties of films like Fatal Attraction inside out. The anti-heroine acts like a vampire in reverse: Even when she drinks the anti-hero's blood, she makes him feel more alive. This startling, uninhibited woman, played to the teeth by Asia Argento, is the daughter of a Spanish matador and an Italian princess. She resists the attentions of an upper-crust libertine (Fu'ad Ait Aattou) until she can resist no more. Then she tumbles into a 10-year affair that ends with his marriage to a virtuous beauty (Roxane Mesquida)

I SUPPOSE I am his mistress. It's wonderful, isn't it?" So said Britain's Marjorie Wallace, speaking about her relationship with the Earl of Snowden. (I know - you thought it was Madonna, fessing up on A-Rod.) The earl was not amused by his now former lover's candor. Snowden, ex-husband of the late Princess Margaret (Queen Elizabeth's sister), is the subject of a juicy new biography by Anne de Courcy. He cooperated with the author and spoke candidly. Too late he realized he had been too candid.

When it comes to the plays of Jean Genet, the one thing that's certain is that nothing's certain.In "The Maids" -- currently receiving a skillful production at Fell's Point Corner Theatre -- the maid and mistress in the first scene turn out to be two maids acting out a favorite ritual. In the "game," as they call it, one plays Madame and the other, a maid, as they unleash all their anger, resentment and murderous schemes.Initially, however, we don't realize they're playing a game. We take them at face value as mistress and servant.

New DNA testing of bone fragments found in the pickup truck of a former Baltimore police sergeant convicted of killing his mistress has revealed that they came from the victim, Baltimore County prosecutors wrote in a new court filing. Prosecutors said the new round of testing counters James A. Kulbicki's continuing claims of innocence. But defense attorneys say the new analysis is meaningless because the bone fragments were mishandled and contaminated when they were first collected 14 years ago. The lawyers representing the former police officer have challenged his murder conviction and asked for a new trial, in part because of what they characterized as faulty scientific evidence.
