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. " - Roger Clinton on the marriage of brother Bill and sister-in-law Hillary. 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. "There was a lot of discussion about what juxtaposed pictures of Hitler and Madonna said about the concept of fame.

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.
