You'll be happy to know that Wayne and Garth have made up, putting Wayne's World 2 back on track for a mid-June start dale and a Dec. 10 release by Paramount. Earlier this year there were reports that the Wayne's World sequel had fallen apart due to a personal rift between stars Mike Myers and Dana Carvey. Some stories suggested Carvey's nose was out of joint over his character, Garth, getting much less script time than Myers's Wayne. (Myers is a cowriter on the movie.)

Officially, no one connected to the project ever acknowledged the problem. But a source inside the studio says that "regardless of what happened in the past, everybody's happy now.


We hear that Jack Nicholson, who has been in New York City lately shooting his new romantic thriller Wolf, was spotted sitting in the waiting room of a New York City doctor whose specially is hair restoration.

Was Nicholson, 56, there simply to pick up the doctor and take him to a basketball game, or is he looking for a possible alternative to a Willard Scott-like toupee?

Nicholson's rep wouldn't touch this one. A source who knows Nicholson, however, reasons that if he is considering scalp action, ''it's not because he simply fears a receding hairline, he fears gelling older."


Donald Fagen has reason to celebrate. Not only is Kamakiriad, his first studio album in 11 years, hitting the stores on May 25, but the Steely Dan cofounder also recently became a married man.

The new Mrs. Fagen is songwriter Libby Titus ("Love Has No Pride"), the former girlfriend of both Mac (Dr. John) Rebennack and the Bands Levon Helm. She and Helm had a daughter, Amy, in 1971.


When the new comedy movie Made in America opens on May 28, watch for the scene in which Whoopi Goldberg bicycles past a theater marquee advertising a Paula Prentiss retrospective.

Taking nothing away from the formidable acting talents of Prentiss, the 5'9" star of Where the Boys Are (1960) and The Stepford Wives (1975), we suspect this particular marquee is the work of the film's director, Richard Benjamin. He and Prentiss have been married for nearly 32 years.


Aretha Franklin is not one to be intimidated. Although the singer received major flak from animal-rights activists last January when she wore a Russian sable coat to various Inaugural wingdings in Washington, she was conspicuously decked out in the longest white mink stole we have seen in ages when she appeared in concert May 1 at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan.

"Aretha often gets cold onstage," explained a publicist at her record company, Arista. But what about all the animal-rights protesters? Said the publicist: "They have their opinion, and Aretha has hers."
