In a May 24 letter about me to The Times from Tai Park, attorney for Ron Meyer, Universal Studios president and chief operating officer, Park wrote: "[Cynthia] Garvey has a history of filing false claims of abuse at the hands of ex-lovers." He also wrote: "Garvey accepted a plea bargain after being charged with filing five false police reports against one such ex-boyfriend in 1996." The police reports in question do not name any suspect and are not "against" an ex-boyfriend or anyone else.

Cyndy Garvey, the former wife of ex-Dodger star Steve Garvey, has been charged with five counts of filing false police reports claiming that she had been stalked, Santa Monica police said. Garvey told police she had been stalked, assaulted and had received harassing telephone calls from a Santa Monica man in December and in January, according to a complaint filed Wednesday by the Santa Monica city attorney's office.

Cyndy Truhan, former wife of onetime Dodgers star Steve Garvey, has dropped her request for a restraining order against Santa Monica restaurateur Hans Rockenwagner. Truhan, 46, has been charged with making false reports to police that Rockenwagner--whom she dated for almost two years--had harassed and stalked her. Rockenwagner says the reality is that Truhan has broken into his home, bothered him at his Santa Monica restaurant and called him as many as 35 times a night.

Does anyone at The Times actually read the puff-piece ramblings of Liz Smith? Her column is an embarrassment to your paper. Liz runs an interview with Cyndy Garvey (Calendar, Oct. 4). After that the real Cyndy Garvey calls to say that the first Cyndy was a fake (Calendar, Oct. 16). Liz quotes the first Cyndy as saying that Regis Philbin made no mention of her in his book; later, Liz admits that Regis did indeed mention Cyndy in his book. It's called fact-checking, Liz--look into it. Then, instead of apologizing for her stupid mistake, she shifts the blame to the person who hoaxed her. I was sorry when you added Liz Smith to Calendar several years ago, but her pathetic column, with its toadying to celebrities and rewriting of press releases, has become intolerable.

Steve Garvey was my favorite Dodger, and I tried to keep an open mind in regards to his "problems"--until I read his "side of the story." I can only tell you, if he was my husband or my friend or my associate, I would become hysterical and need counseling just being around this "pillar of perfection." All I can say to Cyndy Garvey is, I wish you and your daughters all the best. TERESA BIRD, Torrance

"The Secret Life of Cyndy Garvey," last year's stinging tell-all tome from the ex-wife of former baseball hero Steve Garvey, is in development as an ABC-TV movie. That's the book, you'll recall, that shattered the first baseman's squeaky-clean image by describing him as a distant, emotionally abusive, philandering husband. Garvey's current wife, Candace, tells us that she and Steve have been aware of a possible movie project since Cyndy "was in the middle of her book tour, something like that.

Former baseball star Steve Garvey says a provocative book by his former wife is part of a methodical campaign "to bring me down." Speaking in a television interview to be broadcast Friday, Garvey lashed at Cyndy Garvey for co-writing "The Secret Life of Cyndy Garvey" with Andy Meisler. The book paints an unflattering picture of the former first baseman for the Dodgers and Padres. The interview is to be shown on "A Current Affair" and was taped Wednesday in San Diego.
