Ultra-affable talk show host Arsenio Hall, 32, was floored when he became the 1,923rd star to get a cement slab to call his own on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His star is right next to Marilyn Monroe's.

When model Kim Alexis, 29, smooched with Larry "Bud" Melman, 69, during a Manhattan bash thrown by the William Morris Agency, the kiss went to the head of David Letterman's stumpy sidekick.

Gary Busey, 46, who barely survived a 1988 motorcycle crash in which he wore no helmet, has changed his hardheaded ways. He wore a helmet for all 100 miles of a charity ride near Los Angeles.

John Travolta, 36, brought his old buddy, actress Kelly Preston, 27, to the American Ireland Fund's Gene Kelly tribute in L.A. Contrary to tabloid reports, a rep for the two says they are not engaged.
