Jessica Hahn went one-on-one on a New York TV call-in show yesterday with the ex-madam who claims the former church secretary worked for her as a prostitute.

Hahn said she has never met former brothel operator Roxanne Dacus and said she had learned that the ex-madam's real name is Betty Malone.

Hahn, calling from the Los Angeles Playboy mansion, also said she was planning a news conference Monday -- without consulting her attorney -- to back up her story, published in Playboy, that she was a virgin before her 1980 sexual encounter with deposed PTL leader Jim Bakker.

Dacus claimed in an interview with rival magazine Penthouse that Hahn worked for her in 1977 and 1978 when she ran a brothel in North Massapequa, Long Island.

When Richard Bey, host of WWOR-TV's "People Are Talking," asked Hahn if she would be willing to meet her accuser face to face, Hahn said, "You know who'll I'll meet face to face? {Penthouse magazine publisher} Bob Guccione. Forget the madam -- I don't have time for small stuff."

Chucking It?

Prince Charles, irked by his treatment in the press, groused yesterday that maybe he ought to give up his crusade against poverty and spend his time playing polo. "Clearly it would be much easier to lead a quiet life," he said in a BBC interview. "I do not need to do all this. No one is ordering me to do it." At a meeting with editors of Britain's newspapers, he was reported to have complained that they failed to chronicle his public activities accurately and seriously. "I sometimes wonder why I don't pack it in and spend my time playing polo," he said.Philip Forgiven

The Chinese community of Manchester, England, welcomed Prince Philip yesterday with open arms, a year after he reportedly told some British exchange students they would get "slitty eyes" if they stayed in China. Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, was invited to Manchester to dedicate a $634,000 decorative arch in the city's Chinatown.

Manchester's Chinese community leaders apparently harbor no hard feelings about the royal gaffe. "I think he was just joking," said the archway's committee chairman.Moynihan's Annoyance

Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan told reporters yesterday that the same people who accused him of heavy drinking when he ran for reelection six years ago are using the smear tactic again. The Democrat from New York refused to name the rumor mongers, but when asked if they were Republicans or Democrats, Moynihan replied: "I don't think it's Democrats." Moynihan's office yesterday said recent articles in Newsweek magazine and The New York Times have included comments suggesting he is a heavy drinker. "Obviously, they can't attack him on his record so they're attacking him with untrue accusations," said Moynihan's press secretary, Matt James.The Red Carpet
