1 Dee Dee Myers
The former Clinton press secretary was booked for DUI. Blame those damn liberals — letting women drive.

2 Hugh Grant
Captured at last. The people of L.A. must have been afraid to leave their houses while he was on the loose.

3 Michael Douglas
His wife has filed for divorce after 18 years. At least she stuck it out until he grew up.

4 Troy Aikman and Sandra Bullock
Perfect together: One’s a pretty airhead, the other’s not a bad actress.

5 Beach Music
Pat Conroy’s dysfunctional-family book is part of a $5 million movie deal. Normal parents aren’t worth a dime.

6 The Raiders
They’re heading back to Oakland. That leaves Los Angeles with only two pro football teams — UCLA and USC.

7 $75-a-Bottle Tequila
Something new from Jose Cuervo. The worm at the bottom wears a fur.

8 Macaulay Culkin
His parents wage an ugly custody fight. The loser only gets to spend weekends with his bank account.

9 Species
A human mates with a half-alien. It’s The Lisa Marie Presley Story.

10 George Michael
He didn’t record for five years because he stood up for himself. He won’t make that mistake again.

11 Wimbledon
The classiest venue in tennis. You’re not allowed to sweat until someone in the royals’ box does first.

12 Ringo Starr
Reduced from Beatle to Pizza Hut flak. How long before he actually has to make pizzas for a living?

13 Diane Sawyer
Nixon’s rabbi says she was Deep Throat of Watergate fame. Hey, if he didn’t even know Nixon wasn’t Jewish…

14 Unabomber
He complains about technology, but how bad can it be? His mail bombs always arrive in good condition.

15 First Knight
Richard Gere as Lancelot. Nice suit of armor. Armani?
