Jim Mullen's Hot Sheet

The 15 hottest topics the week of August 18, 1995

1 A Walk in the Clouds
Keanu Reeves and Aitana Sanchez-Gijon find love in wine country. The Grapes of Madison County.

2 Julia Roberts
Starring in Something to Talk About. Wouldn't that have been a better title for Waterworld?

3 Mumia Abu-Jamal
The public-radio essayist got a stay of execution. Death would be a little harsh for low ratings.

4 Anna Nicole Smith
The young model was widowed by her elderly rich husband. It was a ''May, but can you?'' romance.

5 The Housekeeper's Diary
Princess Di's maid has written a book telling tales on her royal boss. She's planning her second book, Why Won't Anyone Hire Me?

6 Tofu
A study says it lowers your cholesterol. But how do you keep yourself from eating too much?

7 George
JFK Jr.'s new political magazine. How will he get politicians to read a magazine without a centerfold?

8 Divine Brown
The Hollywood hooker stars in Brazilian lingerie ads. What's the company called? Between Hugh and Me?

9 Shark Week
The Discovery Channel's tribute to mindless, flesh-eating fish. A change from all that violence on network TV.

10 Unabomber
Bob Guccione's offered him a monthly column in Penthouse. I'm just lucky the guy's not funny.

11 Mark Fuhrman, Movie Consultant
Didn't he write ''Poca-bleeping-hontas?''

12 Elvis
Forty-thousand fans are expected at Graceland on the 18th anniversary of his death. That's a long drive from Branson.

13 Babe
A tale of a pig who makes his mark. It's funny, didn't cost $200 million, and doesn't star Hugh Grant. What more could you want?

14 A Little Princess
It's being re-released. Doesn't she always get her way?

15 Dangerous Minds
Michelle Pfeiffer as a teacher of toughs. The worst is, they have remedial target practice.
