HE JUST CAN'T STAY AWAY ...
Looks like Christian Slater is returning to the scene of the crime. Three months after being part of Ben Affleck's much-ballyhooed "bachelor party"-gone-awry in Vancouver, Slater is heading back to the Canadian city, where he still has nothing but compliments for the folks at Brandi's Exotic Nightclub. "It's great there, isn't it? So much fun," says the actor, who reportedly had his back shaved by a stripper during his last trip. But this time around, Slater, 34, says he plans to be on better behavior – or at least to be more stealth. "I only get into trouble if certain people are there, it seems," he tells us.
HAS LIZA MOVED ON?
Just days after serving divorce papers to husband David Gest, Liza Minnelli arrived at the recent opening of L.A.'s Walt Disney Concert Hall with a new man at her side: Beverly Hills "Pawn Broker to the Stars" Yossi Dina. "We are just good friends," insists Dina, owner of South Beverly Wilshire Jewelry and Loan in Beverly Hills, where stars like Rob Lowe, Paula Abdul and Farrah Fawcett have found bargains on rare jewels and priceless pieces of pop culture memorabilia. (Dina's inventory includes paintings by Van Gogh, handwritten love letters from Greta Garbo, Oscar statues and various Super Bowl rings.) "Liza has bought some stuff from me ... cute diamond-and-pearl necklaces," says the 40-something Israeli immigrant, who loaned Minnelli $300,000 worth of diamonds and sapphires for the Disney event. Of his pal's messy divorce, he opined: "You have to be a real loser to sue your wife."
