BIONIC MOM: Lindsay Wagner has some special rules for raising her children. One is don't eat red meat and another is don't watch Mom in reruns of her old show, 'The Bionic Woman.' 'My youngest son has never seen it and my older son has probably seen a couple of episodes,' Wagner says in an episode of 'Geraldo' about celebrity mothers that will air Monday. 'It's not a fantasy for them. They're looking at their mother with a gun to her head. I don't think that's very healthy.' She's also feels strongly about breast feeding. 'I nursed my first son for three years and my second one for four years,' Wagner says.NEWLN:

DUKE OF BROADWAY: John Schneider didn't get stereotyped as a hick despite all those years as Bo Duke on 'The Dukes of Hazard.' He's playing Baron Felix Amadeus Benvenutto von Gaigann in 'Grand Hotel' on Broadway. 'Working on Broadway has completely turned my career around,' said Schneider, who will join a touring company of 'Brigadoon' next month. 'It's worked out for me very well. There's a whole different perception of me among producers and directors. They know the discipline it takes and the demands of the people I work with. It's a different thing when they shake my hand backstage and tell me I did a great job. They respect my work.'NEWLN:

OLMOS AS KINGMAKER: Now it can be told -- Edward James Olmos determined the course of the 1988 presidential election. Olmos is urging the presidential candiates to see his new film, 'American Me,' the story of Mexican-American gang wars, and address the problems of urban violence. It could pay off at the ballot box since Olmos says his movie 'Stand and Deliver' about inspirational high school teacher Jaime Escalante was the key factor in George Bush 's victory over Michael Dukakis in 1988. ''Stand and Deliver' elected Bush!' Olmos said, according to The Washington Post, during an appearance in Washington last week. 'It became his call for education. That's what won him his election.' Also while expounding his role, Olmos said, 'No living Chicano has given more positive role models -- no one. Not Anthony Quinn , not Ricardo Montalban , no one who has ever been a Latino on the face of the planet has ever given more positive role models.'
