NAMES IN THE NEWS

          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).
