Voiwrte of imH raeket aersoaal replies imeossible. Q Ever since Jan.26, 1979, when Nelson Rockefeller died in the arms of Megan Marshack, his young art aide, T ve wondered how much he left her in his will. The story is that Rocky left Megan his New York townhouse and a million-dollar trust fund, which will take care of her financial needs for life. Any such bequests in the will?N.L Santa Fe, N.M. A There are no bequests or mention of a trust fund. Marshack, however, is listed as a beneficiary in a clause that reads: "I release and discharge each of Susan Cable Herter, Megan R. Marshack and Hugh Morrow from any indebtedness, including interest thereon, which he or she may owe to me at the time 6f my death, and I direct my Executors to cancel any promissory notes or any other evidence of his or her indebtedness to me." , Not long after Marshack went to work for Rockefeller in 1976, helping with his art collection, he lent her enough to buy an apartment at 25 W. 54th St., a few doors from his own townhouse. It was this loan that Rockefeller forgave in his will. 1 T7 i 1st) Marshack and Rockefeller: All debts forgiven Q Gen. Alexander Haig, who was Richard Nixon's chief of staff and Ronald Reagan's Secretary of State, was elected to the board of directors of the MGMI United Artists Entertainment Company in Hollywood. How much is he being paid? Does he have to pay the William Morris Agency 10 for getting him the position? J. Weiss, Palms, Calif. A MGMUA generally pays its outside directors $2000 a meeting and holds a minimum of four meetings a year. Haig does not have to pay the William Morris Agency a commission for the directorship or for his MGMUA consultancy, which earns him an additional $25,000 a year. Aft - a ' 1 c ,x i Lorenzo Lamas at age 2 with his glamorous parents Q When Fernando Lamas, whose son Lorenzo acts in the "Falcon Crest" TV series, died some time ago, the newspaper obituaries said that he had only one wife, Esther Williams, the actress. Is Esther Williams the mother of Lorenzo Lamas? Joanna Mandl, Laurel, Del. A Fernando Lamas had four wives Pearla Mux, Lydia Babachi, Arlene Dahl and Esther Williams. The actress Arlene Dahl, third of Lamas' four wives, is the mother of Lorenzo. Q Isn't Sen. Ted Kennedy quietly seeking a papal annulment so that he can marry his secret love, Sherry Lansing, formerly an executive of 20th Century-Fox? M.M., Evanston, III. A Senator Kennedy is seeking no papal annulment at this time, and his secret love is not Sherry Lansing, although they have met. Q The word is out that the fix is in for John De Lorean, that the automobile designer who was arrested for allegedly dealing in drugs will never serve a day in jail. Any truth to that?Bernie B., Las Vegas, Nev. A No truth. De Lorean's case is scheduled for April , at which time his lawyers will probably offer a defense based on charges of entrapment. De Lorean: No "fix" X In a recent Q and A, you stated that Ronald Reagan would get a pension from the federal government for being President and having served in the armed forces. I was under the impression that one has to serve in the armed forces for at least 20 years to be eligible for a pension. As a World War II vet, I'd certainly like to know if Reagan has discovered a short-term service pension I could also latch onto. Norman Emsoie, Yardley, Pa. A Presidential and Congressional retirement benefits are computed by a special formula in which a major factor is the number of months the retiree worked in the federal government. For Presidential pension purposes, the months served in the armed forces are considered federal service and therefore help determine the amount of one's pension. -'i'0 v I Tuesday enjoys her day as Misha's leading lady Q Has Tuesday Weld replaced Jessica Lange in the heart of Mikhail Baryshnikov, the star of the Bolshoi Ballet who defected from the Russians in Toronto in 1974? D. McKay, Toronto, Canada. A At this writing, Tuesday Weld, 39, seems to be a passing fancy in the somewhat strenuous love life of "Misha" Baryshnikov, 35, star and director of American Ballet Theatre. v Q Why does Richard Pryor enjoy using bad language? Felecia Pearson, Newport News, Va. A What you consider bad language, Pryor regards as an ingredient of his ordinary vocabulary and a part of his act. t wALTutscorrm3 PARADE THE SUNDAY NEWSPAPER MAGAZINE FEBRUARY 20, 1983 i tot Artittoti Pmft TM TMpi oVtv yrt,.y. laaiT, MWim r llnllilr, fmwf "RESIDENT, Carlo VHterM EDITOR, Walter Aatfersea EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT, Jewell S.
