Roxanne Pulitzer may not be the role model you would choose for your daughter, but you might find some inspiration in her rehabilitation. Ten years ago, recall, she was sued for divorce in Palm Beach by Herbert (Peter) Pulitzer, heir to the newspaper fortune. The accusations ran the gamut from embarrassing to sordid--drugs, extramarital affairs, voodoo rituals, lesbianism and a menage a trois among the Pulitzers and her best friend, Jackie Kimberly, who married into the Kleenex clan.

Seven years, a Playboy photo spread, a best-selling book and a television movie later, Roxanne Pulitzer is going back to court. A judge set Jan. 16 for a trial on Pulitzer's request that her visits with her 12-year-old twin sons be increased. After a much-publicized 1982 divorce trial filled with testimony about infidelity, sexual experimentation and drug use in Palm Beach society, Pulitzer lost custody of the twins to her millionaire ex-husband, Herbert (Peter) Pulitzer.
