Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, deposed leaders of the PTL television ministry, have sold their elegant Palm Springs, Calif., home for $600,000 to a pie company owner, their real estate agent said yesterday.

The buyer, Sam Apodaca, 52, "saw {the house} on television and decided it was the house he would like to own," said Emma Howard, owner of Cherokee Real Estate in Palm Springs. Apodaca, who closed the deal Thursday, has already moved into the sprawling estate with his wife.

Since the desert home was in the Bakkers' name, the money is not expected to go to PTL. PTL spokesman Don Hardister thinks it should. "But I don't think he will {give it to PTL}," Hardister said, adding, "I don't think we're going to reap any financial benefit from it."

The Bakkers, who moved out of the Palm Springs home in late July, now live in a chalet in the Tennessee mountains near Gatlinburg.

Ike Turner to Stand Trial

Rhythm-and-blues musician Ike Turner, ex-husband of singer Tina Turner, has been ordered to stand trial Sept. 17 in Superior Court in Santa Monica, Calif., on charges of transporting cocaine and possession of the drug for sale.

Turner, who pleaded not guilty, is free on $1,500 bail.

Sheriff's deputies said they stopped Turner's car Aug. 19 for erratic driving and discovered nearly six grams of the drug known as rock cocaine in a dental floss container in the car.

Turner already faces trial on charges stemming from a 1985 arrest in which he allegedly conspired to sell 10 ounces of cocaine to a Pasadena, Calif., undercover police officer.

Iacoccas Postpone Divorce Hearing

Lawyers for Chrysler Corp. Chairman Lee Iacocca and his wife Peggy said yesterday that the hearing on the couple's divorce case has been postponed until Dec. 14 to give them more time to reconcile their differences.

The divorce proceedings, in which the 62-year-old Iacocca had sought to end his 1986 marriage to the 36-year-old former airline employe, were scheduled to begin in Detroit next week.

Lawyer Robert Feldstein said the couple's "efforts at reconciliation are still ongoing"; lawyers on both sides have said the couple are optimistic about a reconciliation.

A host of ex-presidents, movie stars and sports legends soon will be seen on television voicing their support for America's space program.
