J.Lo exes team up for democracy

New York -- Despite their J.Lo connection, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs was on the same page with Ben Affleck at the Democratic National Convention.

Combs told the E! cable channel on the convention floor in Boston: "No way a woman would ever come between men. I have no problem with him just because we dated the same girl. Right now we are both trying to get involved in the process and get people out to vote."

Presidential nominee John Kerry and his running mate, North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, rolled out of Boston Friday with Affleck to start a two-week, 3,500-mile campaign on buses emblazoned with the words, "Believe in America."

Clinton headed to 'Late Show'

New York -- President Clinton will appear Tuesday on the "Late Show With David Letterman," CBS announced Friday.

Clinton last appeared on the late-night show on Sept. 11, 2002, the first anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The former president will be fresh from this week's Democratic National Convention in Boston. In his opening-night speech on Monday, Clinton called himself a "foot soldier" for presidential nominee John Kerry.

Fisher writes autobiography

Garden City, N.Y. -- Amy Fisher, the former gun-toting teen who spent seven years in prison for shooting her lover's wife in the face, has an autobiography called "If I Knew Then..." due out in the fall.

Fisher, who turns 30 in two weeks, is now married and raising a young son in an undisclosed Long Island community, her co-author, Robbie Woliver, said Thursday.

Woliver is also the editor-in-chief of The Long Island Press, a free weekly that has featured Fisher as a columnist for the past several years.

Fisher was released from prison in 1999 after serving seven years for shooting Mary Jo Buttafuoco in the head during a confrontation outside Buttafuoco's Massapequa home. Fisher was having an affair with Buttafuoco's auto mechanic husband, Joey, at the time.

Cage marries former waitress

Los Angeles -- Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage has married for the third time.

The "Leaving Las Vegas" star wed 20-year-old Alice Kim on Friday at a private ceremony on a ranch in northern California, publicist Annett Wolf told The Associated Press.

It is the third wedding for Cage, 40, who split with previous wife Lisa Marie Presley after less than four months in 2002. Before that, he was married for six years to actress Patricia Arquette.

Kim, a former sushi waitress, met Cage when the actor visited the Los Angeles restaurant where she worked. This is her first marriage.
