NEW YORK – Publicists moan, agents groan and the stars wish they had a clone when we dig up the latest dirt in the harsh glow of The Foxlight.
Now that the way is clear for Arnold Schwarzenegger to actually run for governor of California, insiders say he may terminate the idea. On the record, he's thinking about it. But off the record politicos say there's an entire planet of skeletons in his closet.

Tom Bergeron figures hosting the Miss America pageant will "help his career, if anything." He says as it is, he referees a tic-tac-toe game and introduces clips of people hitting themselves in the groin. So, anything's got to be better. Bergeron, of course, hosts Hollywood Squares and America's Funniest Home Videos. He'll host the Miss America pageant on Sept. 20.
