It’s TV Time Again For The Unsinkable Marilu

She’ll probably never find a job as good as the one she had on “Taxi,” but Marilu Henner is anxious to work again in television.

“I’m definitely going to do another series,” the actress told syndicated columnist Marilyn Beck. “The pilot will be done in the spring.”

Until then, she’s been working with husband Rob Lieberman, the director of the upcoming CBS miniseries “Titanic.” In the drama, based on the 1912 ship tragedy, Henner portrays Molly Brown, whose own story was done as a 1964 movie starring Debbie Reynolds.

“It’s the only time he’s directed me except for childbirth, and in that case, I was in charge,” Henner said. “It worked out well thanks to a lot of joint therapy sessions.”

Their name is The Cranberries, not The Commitments

If you’ve seen Dolores O’Riordan lately, you may have noticed how thin the the Cranberries lead singer is. Really thin. The consequences of that, never mind the cause, are said to be why the band has canceled its fall U.S. tour and $6 million worth of European shows.

That was when she was desperately seeking a career

Look for a new CD featuring the early sounds of Madonna. “Pre-Madonna,” a collection of songs made way back in 1981, is being produced by Stephen Bray, a friend of the pop diva’s at the University of Michigan. According to one Madonna spokesman, she’s “not particularly enthusiastic” about the project.

Note to John-John: You can run, but you can’t hide

Tired of the paparazzi camped out on their downtown Manhattan apartment, John F. Kennedy Jr. and new wife Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy are said to be moving uptown. The thought is that they can hide better in that more-upscale neighborhood.
