Highly successful playwright of late middle age--two grown daughters, a grandson, three marriages behind him, and a distaste for the rituals of casual dating--marries for the fourth time. Sounds like the making of another Neil Simon play--"Chapter Three" perhaps? In February, 62-year-old Neil Simon and Diane Lander, 38, each wearing new wedding rings, remarried at his home in Bel-Air, then threw a big bash at the Bistro. "I only count it as three, I don't count it as four," he says easily.

IN the celebrity world, rumors are to be expected. Yet rising R&B-pop star Ne-Yo still had a rare experience after entering the spotlight last year, when some magazines accused him of being a straight sex addict and others alleged he's a closeted homosexual. Although these tales -- the former fueled by explicit video swiped from his cellphone -- were upsetting, Ne-Yo heeded the sage advice of Jay-Z and shrugged them off.

Shares of Lotus Development Corp. rose 7.2% in heavy trading Wednesday on speculation that the software company is discussing a merger with Oracle Corp.

Lotus shares, which are traded on the Nasdaq, rose $3 to $44.75 on volume of 6 million shares, well above the average daily volume of 1.6 million for the past three months.

Thomas Jefferson was a French agent, an atheist and, if elected President, would confiscate all the Bibles in the country. That was the campaign rumor in 1800, pressed by his opponents during the fourth presidential election in American history--an election the Father of the Declaration of Independence won anyway. For the last two weeks, Democratic presidential nominee Michael S. Dukakis has been dogged by rumors that he once received psychiatric treatment for depression.
