A Superior Court judge Monday reinstated a subcontractor who did work on TV and film producer Aaron Spelling's mega-mansion in Holmby Hills as a defendant in Spelling's lawsuit alleging bad workmanship on the house. Steg Manufacturing had been dismissed in March from the suit brought by Spelling against the general contractor, R.W. LaMar Construction. But the judge granted the plaintiff's motion for reconsideration Monday and allowed the suit to proceed against Steg.

Television mega-producer Aaron Spelling and his wife, Candy, who live in arguably the largest home in Los Angeles County, have a problem. Their roof leaks. In fact, they contend in a lawsuit that the entire roof--or "roofing system" as it is called in court papers--needs to be replaced, despite the fact that their contractor told them it "would last a lifetime."

Aaron Spelling's newest TV series promises all the classic features expected by fans of the king of prime-time soaps: drama, intrigue, beautiful actors--even one of the producer's kids in a starring role. But don't expect to be able to tuck your own kids into bed and settle in for a night with the latest juicy developments: "Sunset Beach," which starts today and is Spelling's latest venture for NBC, is a daytime drama--a good old five-day-a-week, watch-it-in-the-afternoon soap opera.

On May 21, Aaron Spelling, vice chairman of Spelling Entertainment Group Inc., prepared for the company's annual stockholders' meeting. A man of few but precise rituals, Spelling traded in his customary casual attire and reluctantly put on a white shirt and dove-gray silk suit. He lunched in his office--the meal served on a silver tray, as usual, by a uniformed butler--and afterward was driven from the company headquarters on Wilshire Boulevard west to the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

Viacom Inc. said Tuesday it was pulling Spelling Entertainment Group Inc. off the auction block because it could not get the premium price it had expected. Sumner Redstone, chairman of Viacom and Spelling, told shareholders at Spelling's annual meeting in Los Angeles that Viacom had dropped its plans to sell its 75% stake in Spelling, producer of adult soaps such as "Melrose Place" and "Beverly Hills, 90210."

Aaron Spelling is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most prolific TV series producer of all time, with 2,642.5 hours under his belt in 1993, before "Melrose Place" even aired and while "Beverly Hills 90210" was hitting its prime. He is such a force in television, in fact, that on Hollywood billboards pitching his latest prime-time soap about Southern belles, his name is almost as bold as the show's title, "Savannah."

So much mail, so little space. Columns covered by these letters include those concerning televised executions, O.J. Simpson's interview on Black Entertainment Television, producer Aaron Spelling and negative comments about ABC's "Murder One" by my friend Grace. I am horrified and yet not surprised at your suggestion that we have restrained, late-night, "quality controlled" live executions.
