Reggie Jackson remembers hitting the home run, rounding the bases, looking up and seeing a shower of candy bars. It was April 1978, and the New York Yankees had welcomed fans to their home opener by handing out Reggie! bars, a chocolate, caramel and peanut confection named after the Yankees' slugger. How good was the Reggie! bar? Jackson's teammate, Catfish Hunter, famously remarked that when you take a bite out of one, it tells you how good it is. But when Jackson looked up and saw that torrent of chocolate rain, he wasn't sure that commendation was enough.

Former "American Idol" producer Nigel Lythgoe has fired back at criticism by Paula Abdul that the show put her in peril by allowing an alleged stalker to audition. Lythgoe says in an interview posted on People magazine's website: "You do not take somebody in that room that you believe is a danger to herself or a danger to Paula. That would not enter our heads." Abdul, one of the "Idol" judges, claimed during an interview with Barbara Walters on her Sirius XM radio show that producers knew Paula Goodspeed had stalked her, and allowed her to audition anyway.

Actor David Arquette is sitting among the press backstage at the Oscars, lobbing questions at actors for Howard Stern's Sirius radio show. He kicked off the evening by asking Christoph Waltz how he'd feel about the possibility of a black pope, and members of the media gasped when they realized the comedian was backstage. "I just applied for a credential," Arquette said. "I'm not sure when Howard is going to air it, but they sent me some questions to ask. " Among them? "Would you ever work with Mel Gibson?"

In his new memoir, "The Fat Lady Sang," legendary Hollywood producer Robert Evans recalls taking an overnight flight from Los Angeles to New York in the late 1950s when he was an up-and-coming film actor. The plane had six sleeping berths in the tail area. Evans was in the upper-middle berth, an aging movie diva was in the lower berth and the infamous gossip monger Walter Winchell was nearby occupying another. Sometime during the red-eye, Evans and the film star - who to this day he won't name - had a quick fling.

People don't seem to like it when I joke about race. They have no problem when I make fun of their mothers, their deepest insecurities, Darfur, even Tom Hanks. And yet when my friends in the Council on Foreign Relations talk about how China is a growing threat and I suggest installing urine shields at our Coca-Cola factories, I've suddenly gone too far.

Eat your veggie dogs and grow up strong If you're going to a major league game and you plan on hitting the concession stands, it's probably good to have a scouting report on what to expect. So, automatically, you turn to . . . PETA? Because baseball is America's game, everyone's voice should be heard, so why not PETA's?

What could possibly be worth talking about: Cedric the Entertainer 'n' Lucy Liu, who costar in "Code Name: The Cleaner," a comedy about a regular-seeming guy who gets mistaken for a secret agent. It is also possibly the oddest pairing in the history of odd pairings. Nicollette Sheridan costars as well, just to add to the unexpected mix! (Friday) * What everybody will be talking about: Seacrest 'n' Clark.
