LAST CALL: Sardi's experience doesn't bug Collins

PR execs take note: a cockroach may be replacing you. In what is

conceivably a PR first, a roach has done a great job raising the profile

of former Dynasty star Joan Collins at Sardi's, a New York restaurant

famed for its wall-to-wall pics of the stars.

It happened while Collins was having dinner. The actress had just dug

into her meal when she noticed a roach scuttle across her table. To

apologize, the restaurant moved a caricature of Collins that had

previously been tucked away on the second floor to a position of pride

by the front door.

Collins now shares the prime wall space with country music star Reba

McEntire and choreographer Susan Stroman.

"I've since decided to hire the cockroach as my agent," Collins quipped

in her Spectator magazine column.
