No kids for Cam No ticking biological clock keeps Cameron Diaz awake at night. Glam Cam, a robust 41 (almost 42), tells Esquire (whose August cover she adorns) that motherhood holds no allure. "It's so much more work to have children," she tells the "Man at His Best" mag. "To have lives besides your own that you are responsible for - I didn't take that on. . . . A baby - that's all day, every day for 18 years. Not having a baby might really make things easier, but that doesn't make it an easy decision.

It happened quite by accident. The phone rang just as I sat down at my desk to start the day. So I muted the TV, which was still set on E! from taping The Soup the night before. Turns out there's something diverting about the channel - as long as you don't pay attention. Everyone knows if you really focus on E! your brain will explode. But watching with half an eye and no ear? Curiously entertaining. Here's what I learned from a day of viewing E! on mute: I'm amazed there is no e in Kardashian , because there is almost nothing but Kardashian in E!

Madonna's maternal hackles are up. What's the perceived threat? A few newspaper items. The star issued a rare but snippy statement yesterday to complain about recent reports on her pregnancy. She's expecting a second child, as the world knows, in September. Earlier this week, buzz surfaced that she was having a boy. However. "Despite what you may have read, including quotes falsely attributed to me, I do not know the sex of my baby and I have no plans for marriage," her stern statement read.

Maybe next time, Hannibal Lecter will order up a hot dog and some apple pie with that nice Chianti. It would only be fitting for Anthony Hopkins, the actor who brought the "Silence of the Lambs" protagonist to creepy life. Wednesday, he became a U.S. citizen, renouncing ties to his native Britain. The actor, who had taken the standard tests and interviews for U.S. citizenship, was sworn in in a brief ceremony in the Los Angeles Federal Building. His pals Steven Spielberg and John Travolta were in attendance.

Joan Lunden, who has infiltrated with Navy SEALS and landed on the deck of an aircraft carrier, tackles even scarier assignments in her fifth "Behind Closed Doors" ABC special, which arrives at 10 p.m. tomorrow. It was scary, she said, to go behind the Secret Service's closed doors - as she does in the show's first segment - and play the role of a "protected person" in an assassination training exercise, braving gunfire, explosions and a terrorist attack. Yet it was much scarier, she said, to strut her stuff - as she does in the show's second segment - as a Las Vegas showgirl in the "Jubilee!"

Joan Lunden said goodbye yesterday after nearly 18 years as host of ABC's Good Morning America, holding back the tears until singer Celine Dion serenaded her with Because You Loved Me. Lunden, who began on the show as a consumer reporter in 1976, is leaving to do prime-time specials and perhaps some acting. "This has been a very rare and privileged seat to be in and watch while history is being made," Lunden said during the two-hour goodbye special, a more subdued version of Bryant Gumbel's exit from the rival Today show in January.

" - Dame Barbara Cartland, Princess Diana's step-grandmother, on the chances of a happy match between Dodi Fayed and Diana What's Joan Lunden going to do after she hangs up 20 years on "Good Morning America" next week?

Oy, was Joan Lunden unhappy. In 1988, the sunny blonde had been a popular co-host of ABC's "Good Morning America" for 10 years. But she'd also had three kids in eight years and an unhappy marriage, and was, not coincidentally, about 50 pounds overweight. "Somewhere, hidden under those sweatpants and baggy tops, was the driven, fit career woman I once knew. It's hard to get motivated to return to your lean, attractive old self when you feel overweight, unattractive, undesirable and just plain overwhelmed," she writes in a new motivational text/cookbook, "Joan Lunden's Healthy Cooking" (Little, Brown & Co., $24.95)
