On The Wings of an Angel

Soap star Richard Burgi -- The ''Another World'' star did not count himself as one of ''Charlie's Angels'' star Cheryl Ladd's many fans

At first Richard Burgi wasn't thrilled to be working with one of Charlie's Angels. ''Frankly, I was negative about it,'' recalls Burgi, 36, who costars with Cheryl Ladd on CBS' One West Waikiki. ''I wasn't one of those masturbatory youths transformed by her.'' But as a veteran of four soaps (most notably Another World, playing creepy pimp Chad from 1986-87), Burgi was in no position to lord it over Ladd. ''I thought, 'Give her a chance.' It's like people dismiss me 'cause I was on daytime. Cheryl has great energy and integrity, so I'm grateful I got over my superiority thing.'' If One West returns after the summer, Burgi, an ex-construction worker from New Jersey (who also played a pediatrician eyed by Elaine on Seinfeld last season), would be happy to hang in Hawaii: ''There are worse places — I'm not in Sarajevo!''
