Now that Tom Snyder has announced plans to leave The Late Late Show as early as December, the hunt is on to find his replacement. Surprisingly, Jon Stewart, often cited as the front-runner for the post-Letterman slot, doesn't seem to want the job. Stewart has guest hosted for Snyder, which fueled speculation that CBS would jettison Snyder in favor of the younger, hipper comedian. But Stewart has moved on to other projects, including the final season of HBO's The Larry Sanders Show and a role in the upcoming horror film written by Scream scribe Kevin Williamson. As rumors of Snyder's retirement began swirling last month, we asked Stewart if he'd take the torch, and he seemed blasé. "I don't know," he said. "I try not to plan too far in advance."
Despite President Clinton's presence at the White House Correspondents dinner, Paula Jones was far more interested in cornering Tom Selleck for a chat. She begged members of her entourage, as well as nearby reporters, to arrange a meeting with the actor.

Luciano Pavarotti performing with the Spice Girls? Pinch me! Yup, the great tenor will join the fab five on June 9 in Modena, Italy, where he will sing with a number of performers, including Natalie Cole, at his annual fund-raiser for the aid agency War Child. Cole is trying to persuade Pavarotti to sing "Unforgettable" with her, in a reprise of the Grammy-winning duet she mixed with her father, Nat King Cole. "It's the first time I've ever asked anyone to sing that song with me," says Cole. "I think it would be so beautiful."
