'CAUSE I'M a '90s kid, I'm gonna go out on a limb and quote the punk-rock band Blink-182 with the song "I Miss You," as that is the sentiment I most feel toward my Daily News family, for this is my final column. From Molly Eichel to Dan Gross , and to Stu Bykofsky before him, the Daily News has seen a broad array of talented people write its gossip column, and I have had some big shoes to fill. When the powers that be moved me from City Hall to the gossip gig almost a year ago, I thought it was a strange beat for me to be inheriting.

ADULT-FILM actress Mary Carey will be in town for a double jubilee this weekend as she celebrates her birthday and the 11th anniversary of the Gold Club (1416 Chancellor St.) in Center City. Carey, famous for her flourishing career in porn, appearances on the VH1 reality-TV series "Celebrity Rehab" and for an unsuccessful bid for governor of California in 2003, has new aspirations, including a possible run for mayor of Philadelphia. During a phone interview yesterday, Carey told me that she's likely abandoned her plans to run for president of the United States - a job for which she becomes eligible when she turns 35 on Monday.

GET YOUR HANKIES ready. This one could be a tearjerker. We are proud to report that we were able to reunite Tiffany Heller , described as the "Good- Luck Wingette," with Bill "El Wingador" Simmons for tomorrow's Sportsradio 94WIP Wing Bowl 20 at the Wells Fargo Center. In 2005, Heller served as a Wingette for Wingador, a five-time champ, but the next year she defected to serve newcomer Joey Chestnut . She helped the pro-eater chomp his way to victory and returned with him the next two years.

ADULT FILM sensation Mary Carey believes Monday's revelation that Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child out of wedlock proves that California voters should have picked her in 2003. "I think it proves that I would have been a more honest governor than he was. I have no love children and don't plan on it," says Carey, who placed 10th in the recall election in which Schwarzenegger was the winner. "We're in such a fiscal crisis and if Arnold can't be honest to his wife of 25 years, how can we trust him to have been honest to the citizens of California?"

ADULT FILM sensation Mary Carey is not letting her loss in the 2003 California gubernatorial race dampen her political aspirations. Carey, who dances at the Oasis Gentlemen's Club (6800 Essington) through Saturday, has her sights set on the White House. "If Sarah Palin can do it, so can I," the buxom blonde told us yesterday. Of course Carey, 30, would have to wait until 2016 to meet the age requirement of 35. Carey, who was seen on "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew ," says she has reduced her drinking and now drinks only "beer and champagne," having cut out wine after she threw up following a meal of "half a flatbread pizza and eight glasses of wine.

LAST WEEK we told you how excited was to be debuting as a Wingette in the Wing Bowl on Feb. 5 at the Wachovia Center. But Chris Weinerman , a co-owner of the World Famous Gold Club (1416 Chancellor), where Carey dances Feb. 3-6, says 610 WIP has since told him Carey cannot be a Wingette because she's been in hardcore porn films. Really? Because Katie Morgan , a hardcore-porn actress who hosts HBO's "Sex Tips" and who is at Cheerleaders (Front & Oregon) next week, is slated to be a Wingette, as are Alektra Blue and Kaylani Lei , both porn stars, who will be there for Delilah's (100 Spring Garden)

IF STATES CAN elect professional wrestlers and actors as governors, is it really such a stretch to vote for a porn star? Make that former porn star. Taking a page from the Mary Carey campaign book in California, Melody Damayo (better known as Mimi Miyagi during a career as one of porn's top Asian stars) is running for governor of Nevada. As a Republican. Of course. Why are the porn stars always Republicans? At a recent fundraiser, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported, Damayo gave a brief stump speech before hosting a dance competition.

PORN STAR/gubernatorial candidate Mary Carey doesn't want to give up the spotlight just yet. She's hosting a pay-per-view reality show "Can You Be a Porn Star?" and she tells the New York Post's Page Six that she plans to run for office again. "I definitely want to run for governor and maybe mayor," she says. "But I had to take a break because it was exhausting. " What an odd world. Last week a member of Nirvana was so appalled by the music biz he wanted to get into politics, and now a porn star wants a hiatus from politics because it wore her out. As for her reality show, Carey says, "We want girls who look like they're having fun - and aren't just in it for the money.

although we're not sure why. Principal photography has begun on the pay-per-view reality series, "Can You Be a Porn Star?" The hourlong show will kick off Jan. 8 on IN DEMAND with six more biweekly episodes to follow. It all climaxes (yuk yuk) with a 90-minute finale. And let's face it, if you can climax for 90 minutes you should be a porn star. The show will feature 28 finalists and in each episode, four women will compete in photo shoots, challenges and all kinds of sexy surprises.
