I see Raquel Welch is preparing to do a nightclub tour with her act. Does that mean she's planning to quit movies?—D.W. A. Not at all. It's true that Raquel has a nightclub tour scheduled. But the busy actress, whose new book "Raquel: Total Beauty" will be issued in one of the largest printings in the publisher's history, is also switching to a new career — film and TV production. For starters, she'll co-produce a 6-hour miniseries for ABC with 20th Century-Fox; she's adapting "Forever Amber," the 1939 sexy-romantic classic, and there are other properties and projects in the works. Q. I just saw the new Sam Shepard film "Fool for Love" — and I'm in love with gorgeous Kim Basinger who appears in the movie. What will I see her in next? — J.N. A. You won't have to -wait long to see comely Kim on screen again. MGM/UA is releasing her newest Tank McNamara Welch Basinger film "9% Weeks" very soon. The sexy drama, in which she co-stars with Mickey ("Year of the Dragon") Rourke, is due for release in late February. Q. You can rave all you like about Don Johnson of "Miami Vice" but for my money, the sexiest leading man on TV is Jeff Wincott, the star of the detective series "Night Heat." Does Jeff have the same irreverent sense of humor off-camera that he displays while performing? — E.K. A. In spades. Every now and then, to alleviate the inevitable strain that comes with late night filming, Jeff cuts up on the set; sometimes (but not always) to the amusement of all the cast and crew. Recently, he was slated to make his entrance in a highly dramatic fight scene set in a bar. As cameras rolled, Jeff barged through the door wearing a red fright wig, pin curlers, and electrical tape "eyebrows." The cast cracked up, but the director of that particular episode was most definitely not amused. Q. Will onscreen sex be ac- • centuated in the upcoming movie biography about Mae West's exciting life?-V.C. A. Sex will be an integral part of the movie as it was in Mae's life. However, her movie biography certainly won't be overly spicy or X- rated. Veteran director Robert Wise — whose credits include the movie version of "The Sound of Music" — just isn't into supersexy screen hiji- nks. Latest word is that Bette Midler, who can get pretty raunchy, will play Mae West. But, Wise assures me the movie will emphasize the "joy" of West rather than a literal telling of her sexy lif e story. We'll have to wait and see. * * * Got a question?
