Nobody called to complain that the idea of a beauty contest was an antiquated one. Nobody called to say, "This is no way to run a scientific survey. " Instead, they called to say, "You were awfully hard on Kathie Lee!" Or, "We're glad you let Kathie Lee have it. " "It's a surprisingly pungent issue," noted Jack Curry, managing editor of TV Guide. He was talking about the issue of Who's the Most Beautiful Woman on TV? Or maybe he's talking about this week'sissue of TV Guide, now on newsstands.

Hubby's word from Greenwich, Conn., is that Kathie Lee Gifford, co-host of Live with Regis & Kathie Lee, gave birth yesterday to a girl. Frank Gifford called the nationally syndicated TV show to make the announcement. Cassidy Erin was born at 8:17 a.m. at Greenwich Hospital. She weighed 8 pounds, 11 ounces and was 21 inches long. The Giffords also have a 3-year-old son, Cody. Mother and baby were both doing fine, said Robin Shallow, a publicist for the show. Gifford, 39, is expected to return to work in September, Shallow said.

Cake, champagne, an engraved mug from the staff - it could have been the goodbye party for your coworker down the hall. In the end, maybe that was Kathie Lee Gifford's appeal all along. For 15 years as cohost of the syndicated chat show Live With Regis and Kathie Lee, a job that ended yesterday, she was just like us, only more so: larger than life, with twice as much eyeliner. Think of her as your goofiest girlfriend, the one you love to hate, the one who's smart but ditzy, talented but unfocused, deeply self-involved but always hungry for your high regard, and always getting herself tangled up in some kind of unbelievable mischief that you, as a sensible, level-headed person, have managed to avoid.

Kathie Lee Gifford convened her continuing education course on global labor rights at the Capitol yesterday, commanding media coverage worthy of an insurrection - or a coronation. That seemed to be the point. Policymakers complained at a House hearing that they had toiled in obscurity until the morning talk-show host became a target of human-rights groups in April for her Wal-Mart clothing line produced, in part, by sweatshop labor in Honduras and New York. No more. And labor-rights advocates, including Labor Secretary Robert B. Reich, welcomed the spotlight Gifford brings.

QUOTE "She had a Chicago upbringing and we had a Down South, Arkansas, Bible Belt upbringing. It was fried chicken and mashed potatoes versus a concrete wall.

HEY, IT WOULDN'T SELL IN PEORIA Random House, the American publisher for British commentator Clive James' new book, "Fame in the 20th Century" ($27) had some trouble deciding what to put on the cover, says New York magazine.

Could it soon be "Live with Regis and Connie Colla?" Colla, the perky blonde morning anchor of WCAU's NEWS 10, has resigned to "pursue other opportunities," the station announced yesterday. Colla, who reportedly is on a "long list" of candidates to replace Kathie Lee Gifford as Regis Philbin's partner on the show, will leave the show by the end of the month. Channel 10 spokeswoman Kathleen Hassinger said she doesn't know exactly why Colla is leaving. The 34-year-old morning co-anchor has been at the station since 1995.

For weeks I have listened to and read morally bereft and dishonest responses to Air Force Lt. Kelly Flinn's outrageous behavior: fraternization, adultery, disobeying orders from and lying to a superior officer. The public compassion for and support of Flinn thoroughly nauseated me, particularly because it did not hold her accountable for her actions. Instead, it deflected discussion onto sexism and so-called archaic notions of marital fidelity (never mind that infidelity is destructive within ranks and within families)

Everybody doesn't like something, but nobody doesn't like Kathie Lee. Oh, if only that were true, laments Kathie Lee Gifford. She plays the most devoted mother on television every morning on "Live with Regis & Kathie Lee," gushing on to a mocking Regis Philbin that her beloved son Cody, 5, did something so incredibly adorable. She can't contain it. It's Niagara Falls on the set. She has just written a sweet little compendium of anecdotes "co-authored" by Cody ("Listen to My Heart: Lessons in Love, Laughter & Lunacy")

WHEN IT comes to listing the best jobs in America, several positions immediately spring to mind: taste-tester at Ben & Jerry's. Wind machine operator for Beyoncé. Professional surfer. Rock star. Hand model. Lord and supreme ruler of Disneyland. But let's not overlook what might have been the greatest job of them all - being Regis Philbin. Think about it: The 80-year-old Philbin, who tomorrow will surrender his post on the popular morning talk show, "Live! With Regis and Kelly," pretty much has had it made.

A CHINESE actor's apology to his actress wife following rumors of his infidelity has set a record for comments and retweets on China's version of Twitter. There goes that stereotype about the Chinese working all day. The scandal surrounding film and TV star Wen Zhang has resonated among Chinese partly because of his image as a sensitive and happily married family man, and the volume of online comments underlines the relative freedom users have to focus on entertainment news online, where politics is often off-limits.

IMAGINE THE MOVIE - a controversial, outspoken film producer is threatened and blackmailed by a D-list actor. It's a bit too mainstream to be a Harvey Weinstein -produced film, but it's just what happened to the famed producer. According to deadline.com and the New York Post , Harvey received a letter in July with threats to kill him and his family - he's married and has four daughters - if he didn't pay millions. Harvey contacted the FBI and they tracked "actor" Vivek Shah by the overseas bank accounts he'd opened to receive the extortion payments from the movie mogul.

The K-Stew follies are on. On. On! Kristen Stewart is pulling out all the stops on an aggressive publicity blitzkrieg for her Brothers Grimm adaptation, Snow White and the Huntsman, which features America's favorite vampire bride as a sword-wielding Snow White. So derriere-kicking is our Snow, in one scene she broke costar Chris Hemsworth's nose with one punch. That's Thor we're talking about. "I swear I didn't mean to," a penitent K-Stew told Today on Thursday. "He got too close.

It was one of those awkward live TV moments that now lives forever in infamy on youtube. On Wednesday morning's fourth hour of "Today," co-host Kathie Lee Gifford asked "Madagascar 3" plugger Martin Short about his wife, Nancy Dolman. Kathie Lee asked, "And you and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business. How many years now for you guys?" "We ... have ... married ... 36 years," Short replied.

Billy Bob's Northern chill Oh, Canada. Now you've hurt Billy Bob Thornton's delicate feelings. Wearing his musician's hat, Thornton had been performing across the Northern territories with his band. The tour took an unfortunate turn due to a widely disseminated radio interview last week. Ignoring agreed-upon guidelines, the interviewer had the temerity to ask which part of his career - acting or singing - Thornton enjoyed more. "Would you ask Tom Petty that?" groused the actor, er, singer.

"Welcome to the family. " Thus the CEO began his tome in an employee newsletter of a company he had just acquired. Gee, thanks, Dad! Can I have the car keys and a hundred bucks? It seems that all kinds of non-family entities have hijacked the word family to describe what obviously is not a family. Somehow, I doubt that this CEO wants to rub elbows with me swilling bottled beer and hovering around the hors d'oeuvres at his daughter's wedding. Kathie Lee Gifford - she of the famous Frank and Kathie Lee Gifford - recently enthused about being named a special correspondent to The Insider television show: "Being a member of The Insider family gives me an opportunity to do what I know.

Kathie Lee Gifford confirms that she has had "some preliminary talks" about possibly replacing Rosie O'Donnell, who's stepping down from The Rosie O'Donnell Show next June. But Gifford worries that going back to morning television would once again put her, and her family, under the unflattering media microscope. "To commit to something long term, I would be throwing myself right back in that same frying pan," said Gifford, who cohosted the show that became Live With Regis & Kathie Lee with Regis Philbin for 15 years.

She's perky. She's pretty. She can banter with her cohost as if she'd earned a Ph.D. in Reege. Best of all, Kelly Ripa, the 30-year-old soap star who made her debut yesterday as Regis Philbin's cohost on the renamed Live with Regis and Kelly is One of Us. Ripa grew up in Berlin, N.J., the daughter of Joseph, a bus driver, and Esther, a homemaker. (Her dad now heads Local 880 of the Amalgamated Transit Union, which represents drivers throughout South Jersey.) She went to Eastern Regional High School in Voorhees and, briefly, Camden County College, before moving to New York in 1990 to join the cast of the popular soap opera All My Children.

Ah, celebrities. How would we manage without tales of their romances, addictions and affairs to enliven our tiny, pedestrian lives? Yet there comes a time when even the most devoted watcher of E! and Access Hollywood must raise the white flag and say, "Enough!" There are stars, and there are superstars, and there are stars we just plain don't want to hear anything - anything at all - from in 2001. Among their numbers. . . . Alec Baldwin. He said he'd leave the country if Bush won. Bush won. Alec is still here - and, if you believe the tabloids, fighting publicly with wife Kim Basinger in the Hamptons.
