NEWS LITE : COSBY OFFERS SAGE ADVICE TO GRADS.

STORRS, Conn. - Bill Cosby told University of Connecticut graduates you can't go home again, at least not without angering the little brother or sister who got your old room.

Cosby urged departing seniors to strike out on their own.

``Your siblings are not too thrilled because they were told you were gone for good, but you're coming back and you want you're room,'' he said.

``Pay off your student loans,'' he added.

Cosby, who received an honorary doctor of Fine Arts degree, said the college experience is about more than earning a degree.

``It's a great, great time. I hope most of you have come away with some friends that were genuine - people you thought you'd never even hook up with for the rest of your life,'' Cosby said.

`Melrose' mad, Locklear says NEW YORK - Heather Locklear will be back for another season of ``Melrose Place.'' Beyond that, don't hold your breath.

``I signed on for one more year and that's it,'' she says in the May 25 issue of TV Guide. ``And I think that everybody's contract is up. It will be very expensive to bring us all back. Very.''

Locklear, 34, who got her start on ``Dynasty,'' also stars in the upcoming NBC movie ``Shattered Mind,'' playing a woman with multiple personalities.

As for ``Melrose,'' Locklear says since the show has done just about everything, its plot lines are getting too outrageous.

Hugh, Liz take privacy to extremes at Cannes fest CANNES, France - Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley made a grand entrance for ``Extreme Measures,'' then remained extremely tight-lipped about the status of their relationship.

``I refuse to talk to the press about my private life,'' Grant said, when he was asked if the couple's relationship has suffered from Grant's arrest with a Los Angeles prostitute.

Grant and Hurley took a ship to the dock in Cannes, then waded through a sea of paparazzi and stargazers to the screening party for ``Extreme Measures,'' a movie they made together.

The film stars Gene Hackman and Grant, and is produced by Hurley for their joint company Simian Films.
