Benefit for AIDS research NEW YORK (AP) — Wall Street execs, leggy models and one-named celebrities shimmied into the night as Kanye West held court at the exclusive Cipriani's for an intimate concert. "I used to sneak into events like this!" declared the Grammy- winning rapper-producer, who performed hits such as "Jesus Walks" ... and "Gold Dig- West ger" for a crowd that included Diddy, Moby, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Terrence Howard, who introduced West as a "hip-hop icon." Though West, 28, typically performs for thousands, Thursday night's concert was only for the sPfifi^i f ^ w — ^meaiy, a few, hundred— to -benefit-amfAR, which' raises money for AIDS research and prevention. West, who performed for about an hour, brought two backup singers, a disc jockey and an assortment of string instrumentalists to support him, including several violinists and a harpist. "I feel like I'm living in the afterlife," West said. "My life is a dream." Witherspoon sues tabloid SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Reese Witherspoon has sued Star magazine, alleging the tabloid ran a false story saying she is pregnant with her third child. The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Superior Court, claims a story in the magazine's Monday issue falsely stated that she didn't want producers of two of her upcoming movies to know she was expecting. The story also sug- Bested that Witherspoon Witherspoon, 30, was wearing maternity clothing, according to the lawsuit. "It is a frivolous lawsuit," Mike Kahane, general counsel to the tabloid's parent company, American Media Inc., said in a statement Thursday. "It has no legal merit, and we intend to vigorously defend it and have every confidence that we will prevail." Witherspoon claims the story harmed her because it suggested she is hiding information from her producers. Being pregnant would affect her ability to perform her duties in connection with those films, the lawsuit said.

Calendar Today TV-icon remembered LOS ANGELES (AP) — Aaron Spelling, a onetime movie bit player who created a massive number of hit series, from the vintage "Charlie's Angels" and "Dynasty" to "Beverly Hills 90210" and "Melrose Place," died Friday, his publicist said. He was 83. Spelling died at his mansion in Los Angeles after suffering a stroke June 18, according to publicist Kevin Sasaki. During the 1970s and 1980s, Spelling provided series and movies exclusively for ABC and is credited for the network's rise to significant status. Jokesters referred to it as "The Aaron Broadcasting Company" "Aaron's contributions in television are unequaled. To me, he was a dear>friend and.a truly.gen-.. uine human being," Jaclyn Smith, the only original "Charlie's Angels 1 '-actress who stayed with the show for its entire run, said in a statement Friday. Success was not without its thorns. TV critics denounced Spelling for fostering fluff and nighttime soap operas. He called his shows "mind candy"; critics referred to them as "mindless candy." "Charlie's Angels" ushered in a genre known as "jiggle TV" for its gratuitous focus on the female form. "The knocks by the critics bother you," he admitted in a 1986 interview with The Associated Press. "But you have a choice of proving yourself to 300 critics or CRAIG MATHEW / AP Television producer-director u Aaron Spelling, center, poses with actresses Linda Evans, left, and Joan Collins on June 18, 1984. Spelling died Friday at the age of 83. 30 million fans. You have to make a choice. I think you're also categorized by the critics. If you do something good, they almost don't want to like it." He liked to cite some of his more creditable achievements, like "Family" (1976-80), a drama about a middle-class family, and "The Best Little Girl in the World." Spelling had arrived in Hollywood virtually penniless in the early 1950s. By the 1980s, Forbes magazine estimated his wealth at $300 million. He enjoyed his sta- tus, working in a Hollywood office larger than those of golden- era moguls ("I'm slightly claustrophobic," he explained.) He gifted his second wife, Candy, with a 40-carat diamond ring. Bom on April 22,1923, Spelling grew up in a small frame house . on Browder Street in Dallas "on the wrong side of the tracks," he wrote in his 1996 autobiography He was the fourth son of immigrant Jews, his father from Poland, mother from Russia. The father's name, Spurling, was simplified to Spelling by an Ellis Island official. "I grew up thinking 'Jew boy' was one word," the producer wrote in his memoir, "Aaron Spelling: A Prime-Time Life." He was considered strange by his Dallas schoolmates because his parents spoke.Yiddish. He was subjected t fo antl-SernJtjp taunts "• and beatings on'his way home from school. At 8, the boy suffered what he termed a nervous breakdown, and he spent a year in bed. He later considered that period the birth of his creative urge. He fell in love with great storytellers, especially O. Henry Spelling enlisted in the Army Air Corps after graduating from high school in 1942. After combat and organizing entertainment in Europe during the war, Spelling returned to Texas and enrolled at Southern Methodist University, where he wrote and directed plays. He continued working in local theatrics after graduating. JonBenet Ramsey's mother dies at 49 ATLANTA (AP) — Patsy Ramsey, whose 6-year-old daughter Jon- Benet's 1996 slaying has never been solved, died Saturday after a recurrence of ovarian cancer, her lawyer said. She was 49. Ramsey had been battling cancer since 1993 and had suffered a recurrence three years ago, attorney L. Lin Wood said. Her husband, John, was with her at the time of her death. JonBenet was found beaten and strangled in her parents' Boulder, Colo., basement Dec. 26,1996. A grand jury investigation ended with no indictments, and no arrests have been made. The Ramseys said an intruder killed their daughter but a cloud of suspicion hung over the couple. The district attorney and a federal judge in Colorado have said it is likelier that an intruder was responsible. JonBenet's death became fodder for tabloids and the subject of books. "I think people realize now that this family was very much victims of that murder and have suffered greatly because of it in terms of the false accusations made against them," Wood told CNN Saturday. The Ramseys left Colorado and had residences in Michigan. "Let there be memories -fond recollections of special occasions and everyday things. Let your heart start on its journey to healing by feeling the comfort of remembering brings. "Let there be memories - pictures, mementos, and favorite stories both funny and sad. Let your mind wander the paths of remembrance, reliving the joys and the good times you've had. "Let there be memories - signs that our loved ones remain near in spirit long after they're gone... tender, surprising, heartwarming, and welcome - sweet proof of the promise that love will live on." - Linda Barnes The family of Clayton Brown wishes to express their sincere appreciation for the many acts of kindness extended to them during their time of sorrow.
