TWO IS ENOUGH FOR NOW, O'DONNELL SAYS ABOUT KIDS.Byline: Marilyn Beck & Stacy Jenel Smith
Rosie O'Donnell is getting a kick out of reports that she's ready to adopt a third child. Absolutely not true, she says. Life is hectic enough for her now with 2 1/2-year-old Parker and 3-month-old Chelsea. But she does acknowledge that she plans to enlarge her family when things calm down.
She tells this column that she hopes Chelsea ``is one of many. I'm one of five. It really gave me great comfort and solace in my life, and I would like to give that to my children.''

Why has she planned such a long stay in these parts? ``Because it's easier to get celebrities in L.A.,'' she says.
She's already lined up an impressive list of guests for February - ranging from Janet Jackson, Jewel and Elton John Sir Elton Hercules John CBE (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on 25 March, 1947) is a five-time Grammy and one-time Academy Award-winning English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist. to the casts of ``ER'' and ``Friends.''

Shelley Duvall, Teri Garr Teri Ann Garr (born December 11, 1944) is an American actress and comedienne. Biography

Her father, Eddie Garr (born Eddie Gonnau), was a vaudeville performer, comedian and actor whose career peaked when and Cathy Moriarty have just wrapped their roles as a trio of comic-book witches in ``Casper and Wendy.''

Shelley admits it's been strange staying in a hotel while on ``Casper'' duty in L.A. - the city where she lived for 17 years. She and her boyfriend, rock musician Dan Gilroy, moved back to her home state of Texas as a result of the 1994 earthquake, which devastated dev·as·tate

That move also included her and Dan's pets - nine dogs and two aviaries full of birds. ``We put them all in travel coaches and pulled them along. It got absolutely miserable,'' she recalls. ``We had to stop every couple of hours for everyone to go to the bathroom.''
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Ann-Margret's stunning, youthful looks have been the subject of much conversation as she's been busy promoting her forthcoming ``Homestead'' series. Whatever she's done, she's done - or had done - to perfection Adv. 1. to perfection - in every detail; "the new house suited them to a T"
just right, to a T, to the letter . She's 56 and looks like she's in her 30s. The series kicks off production next week, with a cast of co-stars including Sonia Braga and Megan Ward. A-M's drama show has her living life in the wide open spaces, with troubles like a busted water main that pollutes the local stream.
Who's sorry now
With Helen Hunt winning the Golden Globe for ``As Good as It Gets'' - and being on the fast track for an Oscar - one wonders if Holly Hunter isn't sorry that she turned down the role. As for Helen, well, the laurels are the culmination of a long, hard-fought battle. She tells this column, ``I read the script three years before and didn't think I had a chance - but went after the part with everything I had. ... This was the only thing I wanted with such passion.''
Who's happy now
``The Full Monty'' star Tom Wilkinson is currently making the Jackie Chan-Chris Tucker actioner ``Rush Hour'' in L.A. It's something new for him. He's had a long career as one of Britain's best supporting actors, but, he says, ``This is my first action film - and I love it. I get to shoot people.'' He doesn't say whether he shoots the good guys or the bad. ``My character,'' he says, ``is a secret - one minute you think this about him, the next minute you know something else. They're keeping details under wraps.''
Wilkinson doesn't know what he'll do when ``Rush Hour'' wraps. Not that he hasn't had offers. He notes, ``When one starts getting a little bit successful, there's the tendency to take everything. That's a mistake. Also, sadly, there are so many scripts out there that aren't very good and shouldn't get made.''
