Red-hot mama-to-be Heather Locklear provided living proof that form follows function at the Los Angeles premiere of her HBO movie Double Tap, arriving on cable Sept. 5. Melrose Place's resident vixen-cum-landlady is expecting her new tenant, a daughter, with rocker-husband Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi, in October.

Clearly on something better than just a first-name basis, Andy and Andie—Garcia and MacDowell—couldn't have gotten much closer on the New York City set of their romantic thriller Piece a' Cake, due next year.

Divorced last year, Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley seemed to have no hard feelings while tooling around London with Danielle, 8, Lisa Marie's daughter with ex-hubby No. 1, Danny Keough.

Dust-busting Elton John wasn't above a little light housekeeping at his hotel in Nice, France, where the dazzlingly robed British pop star received the key to the city. John's new album, The Big Picture, is set for release on Sept. 23.

A very grown-up Deborah Gibson—don't call her Debbie—shook her love on the Manhattan set of the video she directed for "Only Words," a single from her new album, Deborah. The album is the first on her own label, Espiritu Records.

Kid star Jonathan Lipnicki, 6, late of Jerry Maguire, made a big impression with his temporary tattoo at the L.A. premiere of the kids' comedy Good Burger. Lipnicki has a meaty part in the CBS fall sitcom Meego.

Billy Crystal had a tall order keeping up with 7'7" Washington Wizards' center Gheorghe Muresan on the New York City set of the sports comedy My Giant, due in 1998. Crystal, an avid NBA fan, cowrote and is producing the film.

Among the TV stars fueling up for the new fall season during the networks' summer press tours in Los Angeles were Suddenly Susan's Brooke Shields and Fired Up's Sharon Lawrence, whose sitcoms will be featured in NBC's female-themed Monday night comedy lineup. Also getting his just desserts at the NBC event was Just Shoot Me's David Spade (below, right), apparently ready to take a bite outta crime or anything else that got in his way. Meanwhile, over at CBS, St. Elsewhere alums Ed Begley Jr. (below, left) and Mark Harmon reunited to promote their shows. Begley will costar in Meego, while Harmon knows there's a suture in his future on the returning hospital drama Chicago Hope.
