Some May Call It Stupid, But It’s Only Crock Radio

Former “Partridge Family” actor Danny Bonaduce is no favorite of the Royal Oak, Mich., police department.

Bonaduce, a morning-time DJ for WKQI-FM, staged a car accident between two women as a radio stunt last week. Police and ambulances responded before they discovered it was all a trick. “Call it stupid radio - that’s what it was,” said Bonaduce, 37. “I guess I could be facing serious charges right now.”

Maybe so. “Six cars responded to my call for backup at a high rate of speed, during the rush hour,” police Officer James Ellis said. “It was gross stupidity.”

The women were were trying to win a trip to Jamaica in the station’s “How Low Can You Go?” contest.

Loose talk

Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione on producing the movie “Catherine the Great”: “We will not use porn stars. They will be real actors.”

With that many candles, it will be a ring of fire

Johnny Cash turns 65 today.

And don’t forget her hair color: Cornflower from a Bottle

So what is included in the $10 million Martha Stewart Everyday line that Kmart is promoting: a video of Stewart demonstrating how to make hospital corners and her paint line - $14.99 a gallon - that includes such hues as Himalayan Eyes, Dill Flower and Tortilla.

What about Glenn Close as Cruella de Vil’?

Movieline magazine suggests a new Oscar category: Performance in Which the Actor Is Most Completely Playing Him- or Herself. And the nominees are: Madonna as Eva Peron in “Evita”; Tom Cruise as Jerry Maguire in “Jerry Maguire”; Courtney Love as Althea in “The People vs. Larry Flynt”; Goldie Hawn as Elise in “The First Wives Club”; John Malkovich as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in “Mary Reilly.”

Those eyes shone through the shadows in her cradle

Rene Angelil, 55, husband-manager of French-Canadian singer Celine Dion, discovered her charms over 16 years ago. “She wasn’t the cutest 12-year-old,” he says. “She had a problem with her teeth and she was very shy, but her eyes were incredible.”

Maybe it’s just a stunt for the ‘Larry Sanders’ special

This should come as no surprise, but it still does: After 15 years, Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal have called it a relationship. A publicity statement claimed, “The two remain committed and will jointly participate in the upbringing of their 12-year-old son, Redmond.” Fawcett and O’Neal never married.

While underwater, her basic instinct is to breathe
