To all the girls that Julio Iglesias, 41, has loved before, few have had to contend with such exposure. Sultry Polynesian model Vaitiare, 20, and the Spanish crooner were surprised while sunbathing near Julio’s lavish Lyford Cay estate in the Bahamas.

The pair met while Julio was on vacation in Tahiti and have been seen together often. True love at last for the fickle Julio? Vai not.

At the ASCAP pop awards in Beverly Hills, one of the more startling sights was super clean-cut Donny Osmond buddying up to hyperrocker Billy Idol. (The two had met once before.) Osmond, a guest at the dinner, was looking for new songs for an album he’ll be recording with producer Phil Ramone.

If the music business doesn’t work out, Donny and Billy can always try a TV series: The Very Odd Couple.
Dark glasses and darker clothes didn’t prevent a paparazzo from identifying Linda Ronstadt as she arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport. Traveling on the same plane with the singer—but refusing to be photographed with her—was Linda’s main squeeze, movie mogul George Lucas.

After winning the best actor Oscar, what do you do for an encore? “You act,” says Amadeus’ F. Murray Abraham, who accepted an invite from Geraldine Page (center) to join her nonprofit Mirror Repertory Company, located in New York’s Citicorp Center. Murray plays the Ragpicker in the Mirror’s continuing production of The Madwoman of Chaillot, starring Page in the title role. The play also features Carrie Nye (right). Murray met Page for the first time at the Oscars. “I kneeled and kissed her hand,” he says. “She dubbed me Sir Oscar.”
