Last November, ER's Sherry Stringfield stunned fans of the NBC series by announcing she was checking out of her role as Dr. Susan Lewis and moving from L.A. to New York City, where she could have more time for her private life and be close to her boyfriend Odell Lambroza, an investment banker. Now comes word that the couple have parted company. The tabloid Star reported that the split resulted from objections by Lambroza's Orthodox parents that Stringfield, 30, isn't Jewish. Her press rep, however, says the breakup was "amicable and had nothing to do with anyone's religion." Stringfield's publicist quotes her as saying that she and Lambroza, 33, "feel okay" about the split, and that the actress, who's not doing anything professionally at the moment, "remains perfectly content" away from the weekly series grind....

Sharon Stone and her latest boyfriend, San Francisco Examiner executive editor Phil Bronstein, walked into Charles Nob Hill, a tony San Francisco restaurant, on a recent Saturday night, claiming to have a dinner reservation. They didn't, according to a Charles rep, but were seated immediately at a corner table—the same one that another couple with confirmed reservations had been waiting for. The displaced diners, recognizing Stone, chose not to make a stink, and the restaurant paid them back with free drinks while they waited for another table.
