Titanic star Gloria Stuart's next boat trip will be on a river. Besides being the grand marshal of the Kentucky Derby Festival's Pegasus Parade, Stuart will also be the guest of honor at the April 29 Great Steamboat Race between the Belle of Louisville and the Delta Queen. Stuart, who'll be aboard the Belle, says she's not worried about the voyage—even though the steamboat partially sank at its berth last summer due to alleged vandalism. "The water will be fairly warm," says Stuart, "and I can swim."
It's hard to predict which celebs will make other celebs starstruck. Actress Andie MacDowell says it happened to her when she had lunch with Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Styron during the filming of Shadrach, which kicked off the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. To prepare for the upcoming drama based on Styron's short story about a 99-year-old slave who revisits the plantation where he was born, MacDowell says she read everything Styron ever wrote. But no, she didn't ask him for an autograph. "I got so much more," says MacDowell. "I got an intimate lunch. Not many people get to do something like that."
Wonder what ever happened to Kato Kaelin? Neither did we, until he recently turned up as a substitute usher at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills. Kaelin has started a lecture tour called "The 16th Minute," in which he discusses what happened after his 15 minutes of fame were over. So far, his appearances include a seminar at Loyola Law School in L.A. and four shows at Penguin's Comedy Club in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
