She's got Barbara Walter's charisma, Leslie Stahl's chutzpah and Dan Rather's cantankerousness. What she doesn't have is Deborah Norville's face or figure. "Who is this Deborah Norville?" asks Svetlana Starodomskaya, narrowing her eyes suspiciously. "Is she a good journalist? Or is she one of those pretty people that bosses like to put on television these days?" She scowls at the thought of it. "Now this is the tendency for Soviet TV also," she continues with undisguised disgust.

I just returned from Sovietland and while there asked a few questions that might have added a little more interest to the report on Svetlana Starodomskaya. To begin with, when she gets back to the Soviet Union she will be rich. On the black market she can trade her American dollars, each for 10 rubles, where the formal exchange rate is about .63 rubles for a dollar. I don't know her salary here, but the comparison might come from the following. Her salary of 226 rubles is reportedly worth $400 on the regular exchange.

TV or not TV. . . . ALL SHOOK UP: Who would have thought a bunch of amateur videos would be more popular than a television series about Elvis Presley? It's true, despite the huge buildup for "Elvis" as half of ABC's new tandem with "America's Funniest Home Videos"--both aimed at dislodging CBS' "Murder, She Wrote" from its top berth on Sunday nights.

First she was a lead player in a nonfiction book. Now she's being followed by a TV crew. Gale Hayman, formerly of Giorgio and now of Gale Hayman Cosmetics, is being filmed by the CBS news show "48 Hours" as part of a story on entrepreneurs. This week, Hayman is in Los Angeles where the cameras will roll at a party being thrown for her by KNBC anchorwoman Kelly Lange and her husband, director William Friedkin. CBS also sat in on an interview she did with Women's Wear Daily.
