Barbara Sinatra has replied to the bombshell comment by Mia Farrow that Frank Sinatra could "possibly" be the father of Ronan Farrow, heretofore known as Mia's one biological child with Woody Allen.

You think you know her without even talking to her. After all, she looks like just another pampered wife flocking to this playground for the privileged. You know the kind. The worry-free, wrinkle-free woman married to the Hollywood Living Legend, whose meticulous grooming is as perfect as a mannequin's, whose 56-year-old legs are Nautilus-toned, whose biggest headache probably is deciding which Oscar (as in de la Renta) to wear. You tell her so. And, she agrees. "Yes," Barbara Sinatra says.

Francis Albert wasn't the only Sinatra with style. In her first public appearance since her husband's funeral on May 20, Barbara Sinatra showed courage and class in addressing a benefit concert audience here on Saturday night. "Join me in a toast to my husband and let's celebrate his life," she urged the 1,200 people at the black-tie event in the MGM Grand Hotel's Premier Ballroom. "I know he's raising his glass to us." Raising her own glass, she then added softly, "Here's to you, Ol' Blue Eyes."

Characteristically, he was giving the bum's rush to the press. "He said we should not release any more information about him," said hospital spokesman Ron Wise, clearly exasperated at the media onslaught.

In most places, Frank Sinatra's moving to the neighborhood would be big news. But not along Malibu's star-studded Broad Beach, where the entertainer just spent $3 million for a two-story house that he and wife Barbara want to tear down and replace with a 7,000-square-foot home. "I think they chose there because everyone else is there, and, of course, because of the ocean," Sinatra publicist Susan Reynolds said of the couple's plans.
