"Excuse me, Mr. Bonet. . . ." That's the way someone mistakenly addressed singer-songwriter Lenny Kravitz, who's been married to actress Lisa Bonet of TV's "The Cosby Show" for nearly two years. "Hell no, I don't like that kind of thing," snapped Kravitz, leaning back in his chair as the waiter served him an order of pasta during lunch last week. But his mood immediately softened. "I know why it happens. She's famous and I'm not--yet."

Regarding Victor Valle's article about the re-rating of Lisa Bonet's film "Angel Heart" from X to R ("Bonet's 'Angel' Heartache," Feb. 26): Let me see if I have this right. Miss Goodie Two Shoes from the World's Most Perfect TV Sitcom Family makes a steamy quasi-porno flick with a hack co-star and it's the media's fault that a lot of people have now heard about her little film. This is awful. Pretty soon the media will destroy the whole country. HOWARD DECKER North Hollywood

Even though the college comedy, a spinoff of "The Cosby Show," was the No. 2 show behind "Cosby" in the Nielsen ratings last season, the producers were unhappy with it, NBC wasn't satisfied either and TV critics flat out didn't like it. The new "A Different World," which returns at 8:30 p.m., has been completely overhauled. It has a new co-executive producer and director in Debbie Allen, of "Fame" fame.
