For a while there, after Diane Sawyer's vampish 1987 photo spread in Vanity Fair, it seemed as if the media had finally stopped buying the "Prime Time Live" star's I'm-just-a-poor-working-stiff riff. But no. In this month's VF, while crediting Diane with rescuing the ABC program, writer Ed Klein quotes the $1.6 million-a-year (estimated) newswoman as saying, "I don't care about clothes" and "I love to dance with the camera guys." Klein also writes that Sawyer has ditched her glam-queen image for good. Odd, then, that the June issue of fashion mag Mirabella features sultry pics of Sawyer, who tells writer Nicholas von Hoffman that she's just "a working girl" who, like other hacks, lives "in roach-infested motels in Third World countries to get the story." Funny, just last week Diane reminisced to The New York Times about a visit to Ethel Kennedy's estate, saying, "Somehow Lenny Bernstein and I ended up doing a duet."
