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!''
