John Stamos (formerly of General Hospital and depilatory commercials) had his eyes opened by actress singer Vanity, ex-main squeeze of Prince, at a film-industry party in L.A. The two, who'll be starring in an action spy thriller, Never Too Young To Die, rendezvoused on the dance floor, and Vanity received raves. "She's absolutely hot," says John. "I can't wait to start shooting. And I don't care if there's film in the camera."
At the People's Choice Awards, Joan Collins walked off with half of the "favorite female TV performer" designation (Linda Evans was co-winner). She also walked off—arm in arm—with Katy, 12, her daughter by ex-husband Ron Kass. Katy, who spent almost two months in a coma after being hit by a car in 1980, is now fully recovered.

Paul McCartney read of the plight of Liz and Jim Hughes in the paper. The couple who ran the Cavern Mecca—a Beatles' museum in Liverpool—had been forced by illness and money problems to sell off many of their treasured Beatle mementos. To lift their spirits, Paul invited them down to his studio in London. "He fussed over us, even made us tea," says Jim. "He showed that he cared," says a still stunned Liz. "Linda was there too. They were wonderful." Paul's prescription for happiness included a check, which his agent discreetly called "substantial."
