Fun The Salina Journal Saturday, January 4,1986 Page 17 Steamy scenes affect author, too The Far Side Gossip By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN King Features Q. We're long-time fans of historical novelist Rosemary Rogers, who specializes in writing sexy, romantic interludes in her works. I must say her latest, "The Wanton," really is Rogers' steamiest so far. Does she get carried away when writing all this torrid prose? — H.C. A. I con- t a c t e d Rosemary with your question, and she was enchanted with its frankness. She smiled, "I'm as human as anyone else, so sure I get turned on at times while writing. Whenever it becomes too intense and I'm tuned in too much, I've learned to get up and take an ice-cold shower, and then return to my word-processor to resume writing my story." Q. I read some excerpts from a book titled "The Height of Your Life" by Ralph Keyes, all about famous movie stars — the long and short of them. According to the writer, Hollywood producer Darryl F. Zanuck preferred leading men only hi the Tank McNamara Rogers Zanuck 6' to 6'2" range. Did Zanuck himself qualify for this category? — G.D. A. Hardly. It's ironic that Zanuck himself stood barely 5 foot 6M> inches tall, which could easily have accounted for his hangup on the subject of height. Indeed, it's hard to figure out why such a strange contradiction went unreported in the newspaper excerpt. Q. I travel around the country a lot on business and I'm always looking for a good place to eat. Is there a book out where the celebs pick their favorite eating spots?—J.N. A. While a celebrity may often endorse one eatery or another, there is no book I know of listing the top spots of the stars. However, there is a new book called "The Best Res- taurants in America," which polled over 100,000 travelers about their favorite dining places, which may help you. It's published by East-West Network and available hi most bookstores. Q. I don't want to brag, but as a young housewife I feel I've got as much good looks and talent as a lot of those women I see on all those beauty pageants. I would like to try to be in one, but I don't think there are any of those contests for married women. — S.A. A. You're wrong! The latest beauty pageant is Mrs. World. The first winner is a 26-year-old mother from Sri Lanka named Rosy Senanayake. Her fame has propelled her to become a spokeswoman for her country's number one export, Ceylon Tea. In fact, Rosy is on a 26-city tour of the U.S., which will include the Mrs. America pageant, then she'll crown her first successor this September hi Honolulu. With any luck, it might be you!
