"I do not think Howard Stern would read them — he would go a long way, but he would not read that garbage."The show's host is Simpson defense attorney Johnnie Cochran Jr. -Clark and Darden have ducked ques- jdons about whether they were having an affair during the trial. NEW YORK — Exit Oprah and enter Roseanne?Oprah Winfrey is wondering about whether she wants to continue her show —yt^eMu'ghest-rated talk show in TV his-, t0ry —• into the next century. "It gets harder every day," Winfrey said in Friday's Daily News. "When you've done it for 12 years, you've cov- ered every topic."King World, the show's distributor, has seen its stock languish in recent years, in part because of concern about the longevity of Winfrey's show. Meanwhile, King World is in discus- sions with retiring sitcom queen Ro- seanne about a five-day-a-week talk show. Roseanne's comedy ends ite run on ABC this month.

"This experience has been as painful for us as it would be for any other cou- ple," the couple said in a statement. "However, we will get through this to- gether."We ask that our privacy be respect- ed during this diffi- cult time, but we are deeply grateful for the support ofc our friends."Ms. Gifford's chatty "Live With Regis and Kathie Lee" morning showSC.L GIFFORD has always been a forum for gushy talk about her courtship and marriage to the 66-year-old former football star-turned- broadcaster. So it was something of a shock when the Globe reported that Gifford had a rendezvous twice this spring in a New York hotel room with a 46-year-old mar- ried woman."Frank Gifford and Kathie Lee Gif- ford are America's dream couple, withseemingly one of the most secure mar- riages in America," said Tony Frost, Glpbeeditor.

"I don't believe Mr. „ Gifford's identity is an issue," Frost said. It's the second publicity nightmare ina year for Ms. Gifford, who came under fire when labor activists revealed thatclothing sold in Wal-Mart under her name was produced in a Honduran sweatshop.She then became an activist working for a code of conduct on wages andworking conditions for U.S. companies doing business around the world. Lee." She made no comment on the mat- ter, trading jokes with Regis Philbin about their guests, the pop group SpiceGirls; about the New York Knicks* woes; and even about sex.But the two hosts avoided sifting through the day's newspapers, as they often do at the top of their show.The Globe's upcoming issue promises "10 sizzling photos" of the alleged affair,which the magazine said was taken from a videotape.Frost wouldn't say how the tablpid ob- tained the photos, but spokeswoman Terry Raskyn said a private investigator wasinvolved.The tabloid also promised comments from the husband of Gifford's alleged paramour.The Globe hadn't planned to publish the photos, hanging on to them in case the Giffords sued/But Frost said the Police honor former Olympics ^ Richard Jewell, who went from hero to suspect in last year's bombing, says he's still leery of public appearances. The Associated Press, • " • , MIAMI — Richard Jewell is getting some recognition for saving lives byspotting a suspicious package that con- tained a bomb and helping to evacuate nearby people at the Atlanta Olympics.But the 34-year-old former security guard — who went fron% hero to prime suspect before being cleared by the FBI— says he,would prefer to appear in public peacefully."I don't trust people as much as I used to," Jewell said fhursday after an awards ceremony by a police group. "I have to be on guard." .Unemployed and still searching for a job in police work, he was recognized by JEWELL the American Police Hall of Fame for his actions evacuating the Olympic mall July 27, "saving countless lives," and his handling of accusations that itwas he who had planted the bomb there.The explosion killed one person and injured 111 last July. There have been no arrests. Even though the FBI sai4 in October he no longer was a suspect, Jewell re- mains concerned that not everyone has gotten the word. "When somebody comes up to say something, I jlon't know whether they're coming up to hit me, to stab me because one of their family members was hurt in the Olympics and they still think it was nie, or if they're coming up to congratu- late me," Jewell said. "Until they say that first sentence I don't know whatthey're going to do." Jewell said. the group's recognition eases, but does not erase, the sting ofthree months under the microscppe of the FBI and hordes of journalists. He wal never charged. Despite his trouble finding a job, mon- ey should"not be a major concern. Jewell reportedly has settled a lawsuit against NBC for $500,000 and also settled^witii CNN for an undisclosed amount He Jjas a lawsuit pending against The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, o Jewell, a security guard in Centennial Olympic Park, discovered the bomb in a knapsack and helped move people away just before it exploded.Earlier this year, Georgia legislators also praised Jewell as a hero. ;
