Brigitte Nielsen, betrothed to Mark Gastineau, says the two men she most wants to meet are Sting and Pope John Paul II. One can guess what she sees in the singer, but the Pope? "He's got peace within him," Nielsen is quoted as saying in the March 21 issue of Us magazine. "He's confident and he can stand there in his little white outfit, raise his hand and people will obey him and believe in him and love him. " In other revelations, the actress says she got less than $1 million to split with Sylvester Stallone; he's "a good guy"; his mother, Jackie, has "got trouble and maybe self-hatred," and she was not having an affair with her secretary when she left Stallone.

Brigitte Nielsen has been the subject of articles in trashy tabloids for some time, but now she's really annoyed. Last week's Star, the sheet that graces supermarket checkouts across the land, said that she was involved in the Rob Lowe sex-tapes scandal. "I have been called a gold digger, a house- wrecker, a lesbian and now this. I guess it doesn't make good copy to write about me as an expectant mother in Scottsdale, Ariz., but maybe they'll have me giving birth to an alien. " FORD AS A LAWYER Harrison Ford traded his Indiana Jones hat for lawyerly pinstripes Monday for a visit to a Detroit courtroom to gather atmosphere for his next role as a prosecutor accused of murder in the movie version of the novel Presumed Innocent.

The first time we meet Brigitte Nielsen as the evil Karla in "Beverly Hills Cop II," she is stepping out of a limo, about to enter a hoity-toity jewelry store. Her short bleached blonde hair is swept back in a kind of Max Headroom cut. Her large hazel eyes are hidden behind square dark lenses framed in silver plastic. She is wearing a white mini-skirt under a long, open white coat with the collar turned up. White gloves. White pumps. She appears to be the whitest woman in the world.

Entrances don't get any more forthright than the one Brigitte Nielsen makes in the opening seconds of tonight's made-for-TV movie, Murder by Moonlight (Channel 10 at 9). The year is 2015. Playing a NASA security officer dispatched to the moon to investigate a murder, Nielsen lumbers into view in a big, baggy spacesuit. She immediately unzips a few strategic zippers and steps out of the bulky costume to reveal a less bulky one: a decidedly un-futuristic-looking red lace bustier.

Your worse suspicions about Mark Harris 2 1/2 years ago when he married Martha Raye after a 22-day courtship appear to be true. He's peddling an "authorized" bio about one of the first women to make it big on national TV that details his sex life with her and other intimate details. In Take It From the Big Mouth, the ex-hairdresser, 44, recounts his first meeting with Raye - after several strokes - noting she "looked really terrible. " He also throws in stuff about an alleged affair Raye, now 77, had with Joan Crawford.

TATTOO REMOVAL. Mark Gastineau, Brigitte Nielsen and everyone else with lovers' names imprinted on their bodies can breathe easier. For such couples who do not live happily ever after, doctors have what they believe is the first way to erase fire-breathing dragons, old flames' names and other better- forgotten mementos without leaving scars. The technique, to be formally presented today at a meeting of the Society for Investigative Dermatology, uses intense light from a ruby laser to destroy the pigments of the tattoo colors without harming the skin.

Bea Pritchard fought her way past the police, past hundreds of hysterical fans, past the extras and actors crowding ringside, past the bodyguards, and climbed right into the boxing ring. There she was. Bea and Balboa. It was such an incredible, impossible, against-all-odds feat yesterday afternoon that the Rocky theme should have been pounding through the Philadelphia Civic Center. Picture it: Here was this 27-year-old mother of two, a part-time bookkeeper from Blue Bell who left her husband at home to watch the kids, and she was clinging to the velvet ropes with every ounce of strength, face to face with her idol.

BRIGITTE'S TITILLATING OPENING ACT At last. Brigitte Nielsen seems to have a project worthy of her legendary talent. The ex-wife of Sylvester Stallone is starring in a beer commercial that has been banned in England. What got the Brits to pull the plug? The commercial is set in a bar with sheep - yes, sheep - as patrons. Barkeep Nielsen bleats at the woolly patrons (no word on the sheep's response) as she serves them their suds. Enter a black-and-white dog and Nielsen pops a top. Of brew, that is . . . with her breasts.

STALLONE PUMPED OFF OVER MURPHY-NIELSEN FLAP We lament the movie that will never be. The word is that Eddie Murphy and Sly Stallone were going to star together in "Beverly Hills Cop III" until Stallone heard that Murphy was doing the wild thing with his then-not-yet-ex- wife Brigitte Nielsen. "I haven't talked to him since then," Murphy said. "He heard the rumor and believed it. He came after me and said, 'You (censored) my wife!' I said, 'Down brother, I didn't!' "We talked about it, but I guess somewhere in the back of his head, he'll never really know the truth.
