New Dey Dawns: In another departure, Susan Dey will not grace NBC's "L.A. Law" next season. The actress is leaving the show to star in an upcoming CBS sitcom from "Murphy Brown" producers Diane English and Joel Shukovsky. In "Love Is Hell," Dey plays a divorced bar owner who falls in love with a newspaper columnist, played by Jay Thomas.

Susan Dey--"L.A. Law's" tough-minded but soft-hearted ex-district attorney--married Warner Bros. executive Bernie Sofronski during a private weekend ceremony at the Bel-Air Hotel, it was announced. The cast of the NBC show attended, including Harry Hamlin, Corbin Bernsen, Michele Greene, Jill Eikenberry, Michael Tucker, Richard Dysart and the show's creators Terry Louise Fisher and Stephen Bochco. It was the second marriage for Dey, 35. Sofronski, 47, was formerly with CBS.

Susan Dey doesn't miss "L.A. Law." The reason? "There is nothing to miss," explains the actress who played no-nonsense attorney Grace Van Owen on the Emmy-winning NBC series for six seasons. "I think so well of everybody there. I love them all. But I had no place left there. I did everything. There was nothing more for me to do but really repeat (myself)." Dey hasn't had the time to look back since departing "L.A. Law" last year.

Susan Dey still hasn't made up her mind. Or maybe she is just keeping mum. Midway through her sixth season on "L.A. Law," Dey still has no inkling if she will leave the Emmy-laden NBC series after this season. "I have to be honest with you," she said. "I have no concept." In 1990, Dey announced the fifth season would be the last one for her to play attorney Grace Van Owen. But just before the season finale last May, Dey changed her mind and decided to sign on for season No. 6.

I am distressed about the mean-spirited article regarding Susan Dey because I am not certain what it accomplished and it was unfair to someone I like very much ("CBS' Rap on Susan Dey: Not Funny for Prime Time," April 24). We at CBS consider Dey a gifted and accomplished actress whose longstanding success in series TV should speak, most eloquently, for itself. Working with Dey has been a delight and, because of her many talents, she can return to series TV when she chooses.

She sat on the end of the riser, facing 500 people under an immense white garden party tent on the lawn of a fabulous canyon estate. She had a glamorous look about her--she wore a short creamy suit with clunky boots, and her short hair was crimped and oiled and combed straight back off a face that was luminous--angelic even. She had that Beverly Hills aura: gorgeous, privileged, pampered. A stranger, you would guess, to suffering of any magnitude greater than a broken nail.
