"Shoot me thin, you know," grinned the producer in navy stripes who is the woman behind the women and men of "Dynasty." Looking over the field of photographers at the Beverly Wilshire on Sunday, Esther Shapiro could afford to joke. She is, after all, co-executive producer of television's prime, prime-time show. "Dynasty," the 4-season-old soap which this year beat "Dallas" in the ratings, had been her "fantasy."

By day, Frederic Lazare of Bourgeois Boheme is surrounded by 19th and early 20th century French antiques. By night, he's surrounded by ostrich eggs and a power drill. Lazare designed the ostrich egg chandelier shown here with Boheme co-owner Tim Norr. Lazare has the bronze bases cast at a local foundry, then gilds them himself. He drills each of the chandelier's 12 ostrich eggs, purchased online, then fits them over the light fixtures. The final effect? Midcentury modern meets Modigliani.

For Tim Rutten to question Mel Gibson's Catholicity is as invidious as it is laughable ("Critics Debate 'The Passion,' Gibson Evades the Debate," Feb. 4). In a day and age when it is deemed inappropriate for anyone to question the Catholicity of Gray Davis or Teddy Kennedy, it is mind-boggling that a journalist thinks he has the right -- and the credentials -- to scrutinize Gibson. In any event, all the ad hominem attacks in the world will not stop "The Passion of the Christ" from being a blockbuster hit. Thanks, in part, to people like Rutten.

CBS will broadcast last Sunday's Variety Club tribute to Joan Collins on Wednesday--but don't tune in expecting to see her "Dynasty" co-stars John Forsythe and Linda Evans, or even exec producer Aaron Spelling. "Dynasty" regulars Gordon Thomson, Michael Nader, Terri Gerber and producers Elaine Rich and Esther and Richard Shapiro showed up, but the big guns were noticeably absent. A spokesman for Collins told us, "Obviously, everyone was invited. But some people had previous commitments."
