NAMES IN THE NEWS
Published March 23, 1998
In Detroit, Jo-Ann Barnas writes that "Edge of Glory," a new book by CHRISTINE BRENNAN that takes a behind-the- scenes look at figure skaters in the year leading up to the '98 Winter Games, "reveals some unflattering moments" of TARA LIPINSKI's Olympic quest "and portrays her camp in constant disarray." Lipinski's agent MIKE BURG: "I have no comment on the book. I wouldn't justify a gossip book on skating, which is what it is." In other news, the Lipinskis have hired PAT KINGSLEY to be Tara's press agent. L.A.- based Kingsley handles publicity for SHARON STONE, MERYL STREEP and SEAN PENN (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 3/23)....The Golden Raspberry Foundation voted DENNIS RODMAN worst supporting actor, worst screen couple (with JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME) and worst new star for his role in "Double Team" (HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, 3/23)....JUSTIN LEONARD was featured in the N.Y. TIMES MAGAZINE's "MEN'S FASHION OF THE TIMES" under the sub-head, "At 25, Justin Leonard is poised to win and helping to change golf's reputation as the world's worst- dressed sport" (N.Y. TIMES MAGAZINE, 3/22).
