Margo Adams, the former Miss Stanton who filed suit against baseball star Wade Boggs after their four-year love affair broke up last year, pleaded guilty of shoplifting Monday in Newport Beach. As part of three years of unsupervised probation, Adams was ordered to pay $1,030 in fines and penalties and to put in 80 hours of community service. Because the shoplifting occurred while she was on probation for a previous conviction, Adams was sentenced to an additional 50 hours of community work.

In just about half an hour, talk show host Arsenio Hall will introduce her to his studio audience as "the most notorious woman in America," and right now Margo Adams, dressed in a body-hugging scarlet knit, is backstage getting ready. "Did you do Sally?" asks the makeup artist as she dabs at Adams' cheekbones. "Sally?" Adams says, flashing her blue eyes up ward. "Sally Jessy Raphael." "Oh, no," Adams says. "I did Sonia. Then Larry King." "Ohhh," comes the response.

Margo Adams (Mike Downey's column, July 18) does not deserve one cent from Wade Boggs. She made a mistake, and she has to pay for it, not profit from it. BRIAN ROVNER Woodland Hills

If Wade Boggs, who has the fourth-highest batting average in major league baseball history at .354, hit .221 when his wife was with him and .341 when Margo Adams was around, he'd better stay away from both of them. They're killing his lifetime batting average. TOM BOKARAE Huntington Beach

Wade Boggs delayed ending an extramarital affair with Margo Adams despite pressure from his agent and his own feelings of frustration, the Boston Red Sox star said in a sworn declaration he recently gave in Irvine. "The feeling was totally different the last two years than the first two years," Boggs, 30, said in a deposition given May 16 as part of Margo Adams' lawsuit against him. "The only way I can describe it is like a volcano getting ready to erupt. Tones in her voice, conversations, arguments that we would have, these kinds of things just led me to believe that this was not a utopia situation."

Wade Boggs' attorney laughed at an offer by Margo Adams to drop her breach-of-contract lawsuit against the Boston Red Sox third baseman for at least $500,000. "How do you print, 'Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha,' in the paper?" responded Boggs' lawyer, Jennifer King of Tustin. "I haven't received the offer, but if as you say it is over $500,000, that is very funny. It won't be accepted by Mr. Boggs." Adams' attorney, James McGee, made the settlement offer Wednesday, one day after he said he planned to return to court and ask for "several million dollars" in damages against Boggs.

The tough questions . . . Can I have a show of hands of those who, like me, will be satisfied with whatever information is revealed in Bart Giamatti's conclusion on the Pete Rose case, and who don't particularly care if they ever see the 225-page secret report that Margo Adams' ghostwriter was trying to peddle to the media? Speaking of what's-her-name, how come we haven't heard much from her since her latest arrest on shoplifting charges? Can we be sure the mysteriously-obtained Rose report wasn't somehow shoplifted?

A $6-million lawsuit refiled by the former girlfriend of Boston Red Sox slugger Wade Boggs was upheld Friday by Commissioner Eleanor Palk in Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana. Palk, who sits as a judge, ruled that the suit filed by Margo Adams of Costa Mesa may proceed. Palk had ruled on Aug. 12 that Adams' original suit, filed last June, did not meet legal requirements.

By most accounts, Penthouse or otherwise, Boston Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs once enjoyed visits to Anaheim Stadium, where a generous Angel pitching staff and Margo Adams always awaited. But Tuesday was a different story. The Red Sox were making their first trip of the season through Orange County, where Boggs' troubles with Adams, a Costa Mesa resident, began and continue. After answering questions at a lengthy deposition in Irvine about his extramarital relationship with Adams, Boggs entered Tuesday night's game hitting .299, the lowest his average has dipped in four years.

It may be a long time before boxer Roberto Duran is invited back to Corpus Christi, Tex., where he spoke at a recent luncheon. According to Newsday's Wallace Matthews, Duran arrived in ragged jeans and a T-shirt that barely covered his burgeoning belly, which has expanded by about 20 pounds since he defeated Iran Barkley for the World Boxing Council middleweight title last month. When the luncheon was delayed, Duran took a side trip to the hotel coffee shop. He ignored the line of people waiting to be seated and brushed past the hostess at the door.
