The new Kennedys?

San Francisco -- San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and his wife, television legal analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle Newsom, get the star treatment in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar.

But it's the missus who's at the top of the ticket in an opulent fashion spread headlined "The New Kennedys."

The spread features the former model posing prettily in front of a pool table, her husband in the background. Another picture shows the pair spooning on a carpet at the mansion of philanthropist Ann Getty, the first lady dolled up in a $1,998 gown and $575 pumps by Ralph Lauren.

Harper's contributing editor Nancy Collins writes that the couple's union "promises to be one of the most glamorous political unions since Jack and Jackie."

'Collateral' cruises to top spot

Los Angeles -- Good guy or bad guy, Tom Cruise is still No. 1.

Cruise's "Collateral," in which he plays a psychotic hit man who hijacks a taxi for a one-night killing spree, debuted as the top weekend movie with $24.4 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

It was an unusually dark role for Cruise, best known for playing the hero. Jamie Foxx co-stars as the cabbie, while Michael Mann ("Ali," "The Insider") directed.

Other estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at North American theaters, according to Exhibitor Relations Co. Inc.:

2. "The Village," $16.6 million.

3. "The Bourne Supremacy," $14.1 million.

4. "The Manchurian Candidate," $10.8 million.

5. "Little Black Book," $7 million.

6. "I, Robot," $6.3 million.

7. "Spider-Man 2," $5.5 million.

8. "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle," $3.2 million.

9. "A Cinderella Story," $3.05 million.

10. "Catwoman," $2.9 million.

The bill is due

Aspen, Colo. -- Actor Don Johnson has been ordered to pay a grocery store nearly $6,000 for an unpaid tab.

Pitkin County District Judge Erin Fernandez-Ely said Johnson must pay $5,470 for his past-due balance at Clark's Market, along with $426.85 in interest and court costs of $101.

Johnson did not file a response to Clark's lawsuit.

In May his 17-acre ranch near Aspen was put on sale amid a bankruptcy filing.

Johnson, who starred in TV's "Miami Vice" and "Nash Bridges" and appeared in the movie "Tin Cup," bought the ranch 16 years ago, said Joshua Saslove, the real estate broker listing the property.
