Best friends just wanna have fun. Joined at the hip, they like to crawl the mall, club hop during a girls' night out, lounge and luxuriate on spa vacations. But when your BFF is Oprah Winfrey, the queen - all hail! - of television, fairy godmother to America, benefactor to the world, the gal who out-trumps Trump, fun takes on a whole new dimension. Imagine it: jetting off to South Africa to cut the ribbon for the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, a 52-acre, state-of-the-art facility.

At the sold-out Ben Folds Five show at the Theatre of Living Arts on Wednesday, some yahoo yelled out, "Play the bitch song!", a reference to the playful temper-tantrum "Song for the Dumped" from the BFF's new Whatever and Ever Amen (Columbia). Ben Folds, the piano-pumping frontman of the BFF (which, by the way, is a trio), stopped everything. "The big song?" he asked, playing dumb. Then, on the spot, he concocted a song with the latter title that started out as a lounge-jazz groove and turned into a hand-clapping pop-rock romp complete with silly lyrics.

Q: I am getting a divorce and finding that I'm in love with my best friend. It seems that the two are related, but they are not. I was already at the end of my marital rope when I discovered that my BFF was the man of my dreams. He has been my best friend since 1986-87 and is someone whom I talk to about everything. He has never interfered in my marriage, and I never interrupted his relationships. We were the epitome of a platonic friendship. So what do I do now? Some of my friends say I should wait and get myself together first.

The high school sex comedy "Easy A" takes its scarlet letter plot from Hawthorne, but it's all about Emma Stone. The young star, who's been on the periphery of funny comedies like "Zombieland" and "Superbad," gets a chance to sparkle as the centerpiece of "Easy A. " The performance is a gem, though it's not exactly in a platinum setting - "Easy A" is an arch, preciously written (there are characters named Rosemary and Dill) story about a teen who pretends to be a "super-slut" to help classmates with various sexual anxieties.

After the Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines criticized President Bush three years ago on a London stage, saying she was "ashamed" he was from her native Texas, she received a specific death threat, the singer tells 60 Minutes in a segment scheduled to air Sunday. "It was definitely scary because it seemed so - it wasn't just somebody wanting to write a hate letter," Maines says. "It was somebody who obviously thought they had a plan. " Adds Emily Robison, who plays banjo and guitar: "There was one specific death threat on Natalie" that "had a time, had a place, had a weapon.

In the lingo of fourth-grade girldom, Noelle Bucha and Danielle Littlepage call themselves BFF - best friends forever. Both love to shop, have little sisters and agree that boys are just gross. As they posed for a picture with their arms slung around each other's shoulders, heads nodded together and grinning brightly, it was hard to believe that the two had spent only eight days together over the last nine months. The reason is distance, both culturally and geographically.

AS WE TRY TO look back over the past year's celebrity lowlights, we're thankful for one thing above all: A lousy memory. This year, like last year, and the year before that, is already a blur, a parade of skinny, skeevy actresses, overblown weddings, embarrassing faux pas and more embarrassing mea culpas - one giant mush of bad behavior. The Star, which has an entire staff tracking the rich, famous, infamous, talented and talentless, is expert in following such behavior, and the mag has come up with its Top 10 Annoying Celebrities of 2006.

Blowout losses hurt; but knowing you never had a chance helps you move on more quickly. Building a comfortable lead early on a Sunday, then watching your opponent slowly chip away at your margin is much more painful. Every handoff to his running back, every pass to her receiver, makes the stomach churn just a little more. By the time the final nail is driven into your coffin, and your lead vanishes late on a Sunday or Monday night, you're emotionally exhausted. But there's nothing worse than watching that lead slip away simply because you made a boneheaded lineup decision.

Before FringeArts president Nick Stuccio says a word about his $7 million HQ/theater/bistro, his annual citywide festival, or his return to the area where the Fringe made its bones, allow him a misty reminiscence about the old days - 17 years ago, before the condo craze, when Old City was a bunch of empty warehouses, cheap punk bars, and studio/galleries with a smattering of newly opening lounges from interlopers like Stephen Starr. "We had the run of Old City as our playground," he says.

EVEN AS new polling in Pennsylvania and other key states shows President Obama holding or expanding leads over Gov. Romney, the self-proclaimed "leading Democrat in the state" sees a way for Mitt to turn the race around. Yep, Ed Rendell says that Mitt can out-debate Obama, push the "basic fact that the economy is still not in good shape" and argue that "if it's not working, what do you have to lose in trying someone new?" His comments came during a question-and-answer session at a Pennsylvania Press Club luncheon in Harrisburg earlier this week.

  On Tuesday night, the Boston Red Sox turned their first triple play in 17 years against the Tampa Bay Rays. It was the second triple play in the majors in as many days. The Milwaukee Brewers also turned one Monday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers. According to Stats L.L.C., the last time there were triple plays on consecutive days was May 22-23, 1981. The Seattle Mariners had a triple play against the Rangers on the 22d and the Cleveland Indians converted one against the Yankees the following day. B.J. Upton and Casey Kotchman started the top of the fourth inning with singles off Erik Bedard, who then induced Sean Rodriguez to hit a hard grounder to third.

STATE OF GEORGIA. 8:30 p.m. June 29, ABC Family. BEST-SELLING novelist (and longtime Queen Village resident) Jennifer Weiner is going Hollywood. And not the way she did when her second book, "In Her Shoes," was made into a Major Motion Picture and she got to cash the check, drop in on the set and bring her family to the premiere. Or even in the way the former Inquirer feature writer's semiautobiographical Cannie Shapiro did in Weiner's first, breakout novel "Good in Bed," selling a screenplay and becoming BFF with a movie star.
