Most of the snickering about Martin Sheen, the honorary mayor of Malibu, Calif., has washed out to sea. Past titular mayors of unincorporated Malibu have been required to do little more than preside over the annual charity chili cook-off. Sheen had more in mind. He assumed "office" by announcing, "I hereby declare Malibu a nuclear- free zone, a sanctuary for all aliens and homeless, and a protected environment for all life, wild and tame!" It could have been the exclamation point, or the two alls, but Malibu hasn't had as momentous a day since Johnny Carson, a local, met his fourth wife while strolling there on the beach.

This week's cinematic setback to race relations, "Malibu's Most Wanted," features Jamie Kennedy's incredibly irritating Brad "B-Rad" Gluckman character - a privileged white kid who thinks and acts like a ghetto gangsta rapper - from the young comedian's WB network show, "JKX: The Jamie Kennedy Experiment. " To say that B-Rad is hardly tolerable for more than the length of a TV comedy skit is to state what should have been obvious to everyone responsible for this full-length feature.

It's autumn. The leaves are turning crisp, and it's time for Malibu to catch on fire. Again. You know the scenario: TV crews rush from one smoke-filled house to another, interviewing the owners of $3.5 million, ocean-view, hideaways. "How do you decide what to take with you and what to leave behind?" a newscaster asks a famous self-help book author. "I take the things that can't be replaced and that coordinate with my new color scheme," says Melanie Feelgood. She gazes tearfully at her 30-foot leather sofa, her grand piano and her teenage sons, Flip and Buster.

She may talk like a hoarse Sylvester the Cat, but Barbara Walters rules the airways. And now, she's set to pounce on the publishing world. The ABC-TV celeb interviewer, who's chatted with the rich and famous for more than 40 years, has reportedly signed a $5 million deal to write her memoirs for Miramax Books. The deal eclipses the $2.7 million advance that Miramax paid former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. "It's an extraordinary deal for an extraordinary book," said Walters' literary agent, Morton Janklow, who did not disclose specific terms.

Hours before he was going to enter the favored entry in Saturday's $3 million Breeders' Cup Classic, trainer Bobby Frankel couldn't sleep. Every few minutes, he'd get up to stare out his window. But he wasn't thinking about his horses. "It was like a big orange ball out there," Frankel said yesterday. "It lit up the sky. It was an inferno. " "It" was the brush fire-turned-firestorm that lit up Malibu Tuesday night. Frankel lives in a house on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, just a few miles south of Malibu in Pacific Palisades.

A young man is stripping on the dance floor. His hips are gyrating fiercely, as if trying to keep an invisible hula-hoop aloft. Slowly, he starts to unbutton his shirt. In the audience, 100 middle-class women cheer, whistling and standing in their seats. They are mostly young, mostly married, thoroughly lustful. "Now don't you think he's been with his clothes too long?" the emcee asks. A deliciously naughty, "YEAH!" Tuesday nights starting at 9, five muscular, tanned men take turns stripping down to their G-strings at Carney's City Line, the otherwise staid bar at 4190 City Ave., under the College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Thousands of Californians fled to higher ground yesterday as the latest in a series of violent winter storms battered the state, flooding homes, stranding motorists and sending rivers overflowing their banks from Los Angeles north to the Oregon border. At least five deaths were blamed on the storm, which dumped up to 17 inches of rain in 48 hours in some places and spawned 60 m.p.h. winds that toppled redwood trees north of San Francisco. "Somebody help us! We're losing everything!"

Rising star Anne Heche is out and about and grooving on her lesbian poster-gal role. The 27-year-old actress is eager to talk about her romantic relationship with comedian Ellen DeGeneres. It's the rest of us who get tongue-tied, she says. On a press tour to chat up her latest work, Wag the Dog, she's noticed that "not one person will actually mention Ellen's name in a question. " Heche, who won an Emmy in 1991 for her role in the soap opera Another World, says she enjoys carrying the rainbow banner: "It's pretty cool for me to be able to stand up for being whatever you want to be. That's quite an honor, actually, and I love that people say that I'm a person who stands up for being open and truthful.

ESTHER ROLLE IS ON A ROLL 'It's nice for a change to be working - there was quite a drought for a while," says Esther Rolle, currently in previews for "A Member of The Wedding" in New York. The former star of TV's "Good Times" series can be seen on film (with Denzel Washington in "The Mighty Quinn") and cable TV (co-starring with Hume Cronyn and Vincent Gardenia in HBO's upcoming "A Month of Sundays"). She just completed a stage run in a revival of "A Raisin in the Sun. " "I hope all this work is going to pay off with people trusting me to do other things," said Rolle, who is currently developing a one-woman show she hopes to have ready by next year.

A reverse-Cinderella confection in which the princess is turned into a maid and not the other way around, Maid to Order takes a pumpkin of a fairy tale and merrily turns it into . . . pumpkin pie. The "princess" bound for defunct royalty is one Jessie Montgomery (Ally Sheedy), a Beverly Hills brat and pioneer who has broken the plastic barrier - that is, exceeded her father's credit limit on one charge-card purchase.

IF YOU'RE looking to make some money, becoming a surgeon was a good way to go. But with health-care costs out of control and malpractice insurance through the roof, being a surgeon may still be better than being a fast-food worker, but the real money is in playing a surgeon on a hit TV show. Now that Patrick Dempsey is splitting with both "Grey's Anatomy" and his wife, Jillian Fink , the couple are putting their Frank Gehry -designed Malibu home on the market.

It looks as if the Malibu, Chevrolet's midsize sedan, has been "Civicked. " When the redesigned 2012 Honda Civic was roughly received by the automotive press, Honda didn't wait around several years for the usual mid-cycle refresh. It immediately went to work addressing the shortcomings and came out with a significantly revised version of its compact sedan the very next model year. Chevy has done the same thing with the Malibu it had redesigned for the 2013 model year after journalistic disappointment and disappointing sales left the GM division's marketeers feeling faint and nauseous.

The Malibu began life in 1964 as the Chevelle Malibu. The Beach Boys were in flower and this was your father's kind of Chevrolet. It was among a number of '60s machines worshipped at the altar of muscularity. The 1968 Chevy Chevelle Malibu convertible, for example, was available with a 427 cubic-inch V-8 that developed 435 horsepower. Button that engine to a four-on-the-floor manual gearbox and you could engender enough standing start tire smoke to shut down three miles of I-95. (And if your dad ever owned that 427 ragtop, I bet he wishes he still had it. NADA Guides says that car, in nice condition and equipped with options like the Rally Sport Package and the L89 aluminum heads, has a retail value of $63,000.)

* MALIBU COUNTRY. 8:30 p.m. Friday, 6 ABC.   I'M NOT sure what it is about Reba McEntire that screams "wronged wife," but the singer-actress embarks on her second sitcom Friday in a role that once again has her starting over after marriage to a cheater. In ABC's "Malibu Country," she's doing the leaving, taking her kids and her mother (Lily Tomlin) and fleeing Nashville, Tenn. - and her country star husband - for the Malibu, Calif., house she never even knew she had, hoping to restart the singing career she put aside years earlier.

Welcome to Malibu Country , the land that time forgot. Reba's sitcom, getting a late and lethargic jump on the new season, is supposedly set in the present, but it's enveloped in such a strong '70s and '80s haze, you'll swear you're watching it on Betamax. The premise is that Reba (the country singer formerly known as Reba McEntire) is a country singer named Reba McKenzie who put her career on hold to raise her two kids, Cash (Justin Prentice) and June (Juliette Angelo). Too bad the title Carter Country was already taken - by a '70s sitcom starring Victor French and the immortal Guich Koock.

Graham, the first defensive end chosen with the 13th overall selection, said that he wants to wait until his second contract, however, before he buys his dream home. "I rented a house in Malibu just before I came here and I was just like, 'This is unreal,' " Graham said Tuesday.

When the 2008 Philadelphia International Auto Show opens its doors in about a year, General Motors will likely have lost its status as the number-one automaker worldwide, and Ford its status as the number-two automaker in the U.S. market. The 2007 show opened yesterday, and new cars on display at the Pennsylvania Convention Center through next Sunday will be the chips that decide which company is the king of the automotive world. The experts are betting on Toyota. "Ten years ago, that may have been unthinkable," Jesse Toprak, an analyst with Edmunds Inc., said of the idea of Toyota's surpassing Ford Motor Co. in the domestic market.

A NUMBER of big-time Hollywood types live on Broad Beach in Malibu. Tattle understands why. They're moments from the Pacific Coast Highway with a view of the Santa Monica Mountains in one direction and a mile-long stretch of California surf outside their doors. This ain't cheap real estate. Alan Latteri can't afford a home on Broad Beach but he figures he has as much right to the sand, surf and sun as any movie mogul, and he's taken his case to the California Coastal Commission.
