Then, just when he was thinking of throwing in the towel, Steven Spielberg called with Band of Brothers. That project changed McDonough's life in more ways than one. He met fiancee Ruv6 Robertson (with him, left) the first night he was in London for filming. "She's 6-f oot-3, and I used the lamest pickup line of all time: 'Gee, you're talL' " McDonough probably will use his coming hiatus to make a movie with Boomtoum exec producer Jon Avnet But there's another matter to take care o a wed-ding. He and Robertson are thinking Ireland in September A. What's the real reason my favorite actress, Kim Delaney, left CBS' hit CSfc Miami after just 1 0 episodes? Marjuxe Iooss, Bmmd, S'.C To some, her departure was as shocking as the gruesome demise of various Miami victims. Delaney, 41, wont talk, but tabloids were quick to claim co-star David Caruso was jealous. Truth is, her character just didn't geL Miami already was in production when Delaney was added, but the investigator she played, a woman haunted by her husband's death, was too dour even for a show about corpses. All told, 2002 was no banner year for Delaney. She was arrested for drunken driving, and then Pk Uly, her law drama, got the ABC ax. She's reading scripts and hoping for a better 2003. Why did longtime Republican strategist Mary Matalin leave her position as a dose adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney? Joan Stevens, Kartu Ctf Pa.

Sixty-some pounds lighter than she was a year ago, Wilson, 52, no longer fears making the videos necessary to sell new albums like the one she, sister Nancy and the rest of the band are working on right now. To be released this summer, it's Heart's first new record in more than a decade. Wilson decided that before she went to work on an album, she had to deal with her morbid obesity. 'I tried every diet that ever came out," she tells me. 1 had given up, but then I looked at my kids ages 5 and 121 and thought, 1 cant give up. I have to be here for them."That decision led her to lap-band surgery, a laparoscopic procedure that's less invasive than stomach stapling; it shrinks the stomach so one feels full on less food.
