HEAD TROUBLE: Although he says his second novel, Kick the Can, the picaresque story of a mischievous teenager's travels through the country, is not autobiographical, MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour's Jim Lehrer does share something with the protaganist. In the novel, which will be made into a film by director Peter (The Trip to Bountiful) Masterson, one of the characters suffers from a rare psychological condition that prevents him from using other people's bathrooms. "That's the one thing that is autobiographical," admits Lehrer. "I always had that problem when I was a kid. Don't ask me why, but I could only go to the bathroom in my own bathroom. I've put this thing behind me, though." Did he ever receive any advice regarding this problem? "I never got any advice because it's not the type of thing you talk to people about—except maybe mothers and school nurses."
SMALL WONDER: Lynda Carter has traded in her old title of Wonder Woman for that of Supermom. Five months ago she and her husband, Washington power lawyer Robert Altman, became parents of a son, Jamie. "Motherhood is great," bubbles Lynda, who's currently paying homage to her mother's Mexican heritage by recording an album of Spanish love songs. "It's really changed my life completely. The sleep deprivation is still what really astounds me. He sleeps only six hours a night, maximum. It's pretty good—if it happens to be the right six hours."
HOLLYWOOD SHUFFLE: Now that he has officially retired from boxing, Marvelous Marvin Hagler has been making the rounds for his new career as an actor. He has just returned from the Philippines, where he starred with Brian (Cocoon) Dennehy in Indio, a new action film. "I really enjoyed playing another character and not getting whacked for a change," says Hagler. "But while we were making the picture, we heard gunfire from some rebels who were hiding in the mountains. A couple of people were killed while we were there. We had to be protected by the military." Marvelous Marvin can also be seen on those Right Guard deodorant TV ads, which depict him as a sartorially resplendent, eloquent gentleman. "I liked being in those commercials, but learning words like 'odious' drove me crazy. What does odious mean, anyway?"
STARRY NIGHTS: Despite being the mother of one of the world's biggest celebrities, Jackie Stallone remains starstruck—astrologically speaking. "The stars affect how I relate to people," Jackie says before offering a very personal, unsolicited example. "You want to know about my sex life? If I want to have good, passionate sex with a man, I'll pick a Scorpio. I'm going with a Scorpio now," she confides. "If I want to be with a man who doesn't want to molest me, I'll go with a Virgo or a Pisces. Mr. Stallone [Frank, Sylvester's papa] was a Virgo and the worst lover in the world."
