THINGS YOU'LL WANT TO KNOW . . . Not only are Fritz and Jimmy expected to drop by Bert and La Belle Lance's first big bash tonight, but LaBelle even called New York for 50 bottles of her favorite perfume, Coriandor, to give as gifts - but, she paid retail . . . Now that Robert Redford, who never even attends his own movie premieres, has dropped $10,000 for a table at Thursday night's $1,000-a-plate DNC fund-raiser in New York, the cat fighting is really on among senators to get invitations . . . Seen Sunday at the MacArthur Boulevard Safeway, wearing a white sweater, doing his own shopping and followed by a rod-packing protector - Cy Vance . . . Now this is pretty racy stuff, but while in London Chip and Caron Carter slipped off one night to a gambling casino - Chip incidentally, just split to California for 10 days of DNC politicking while Caron's visiting kin in Hawkinsville, Ga. - as the crow flies, honey, that's about 40 miles from Plains . . .

Bucky and Aimie Block are off to Wimbledon next week . . . and Allison LaLand is just dead sure tonight's party for her friends going on vacation will be a guaranteed doozy because, as she's telling friends, "I have 15 ambassadors and 20 senators" . . .
