Heidi Fleiss is in love.
The so-called Hollywood Madam, 30, who is awaiting sentencing for tax evasion and money-laundering, tells me that the latest object of her affection is businessman Bruce McNall, 46, ex-owner of the Los Angeles Kings hockey team. In a bizarre coincidence, McNall may also face jail time when he is sentenced Oct. 31 for federal bank fraud. "I'm madly in love with him," says Fleiss, adding that she would "like to have his kids."

The two, a couple on the show, had been dating in real life too but just broke up. Their split won't affect their pairing on the show, says a Savannah rep....

Ray Walston, who was the extraterrestrial star of TV's My Favorite Martian, may turn up in a big-screen version of the '60s show in a cameo. The project is in development at Disney, and the film's producer Bob Shapiro tells me a role is being written with Walston in mind, but it definitely won't be that of the Martian....

On the invitations that Carrie Fisher sent out for the Sept. 20 fund-raiser at her house in Beverly Hills for L.A. District Attorney Gil Garcetti, she left nothing to chance. Wrote Fisher, whose cohosts included prosecutor Marcia Clark [for more on other former Simpson trial figures, see page 48] and security expert Gavin de Becker: "If you can attend...

Ms. Fisher will rewrite your next script at a discount and [de Becker] will ensure your safety at a discount. If you don't attend, [Clark] will allude terrible things about you in her upcoming book."
