Princess Stephanie filed for divorce yesterday from her husband of 14 months, Daniel Ducruet, and she's expected to be a single mom in about a month. A French radio show reported that Stephanie, 31; her father, Prince Rainier; and Ducruet, 32, met over the weekend, but a reconciliation attempt failed. The couple have two kids, Louis, 3, and Pauline, 2. Last month, two Italian mags ran 40 pages of pix of Ducruet making out with fellow nude Fili Houteman, 26, a Belgian stripper. The flap comes within months of Monaco's year-long 1997 celebration of 700 years of rule by the Grimaldi fam. Meanwhile, the palace issued an unsatisfying response to Princess Caroline pix showing her bald.

Princess Stephanie got her divorce yesterday, the same day that more scandalous pix of Daniel Ducruet surfaced, with yet another woman. Stephanie, 31, filed 18 days ago after Italian mags ran pix of Ducruet, 32, romping naked with the current Miss Nude Belgium, Fili Houteman. The new photos show him once-again in romp-mode with a bikini-clad woman identified only as Valerie, a water-ski instructor.
