NEW YORK - Teenage golfer Michelle Wie couldn't believe she played golf with one of her role models, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

"I was like, 'Oh my God, it's the secretary of state. They put me in charge of driving her around" in a golf cart, Wie told Time magazine for editions that hit newstands Monday.

"I was like, if I crash, the secretary of state goes down with me," the 16-year-old Hawaiian high school junior said.

When asked what she thought of radio host Rush Limbaugh calling her a "triumph of marketing," Wie, the No. 2 ranked woman golfer, said, "Huh? Who's that?"

When told he hosts a radio talk show, she said, "I don't listen to the radio much."

NEW YORK - Olympic gold medal skier Jonny Moseley is no longer eligible for People magazine's top bachelors list.

Moseley married his longtime girlfriend and business manager Malia Rich on Saturday in front of 130 guests in Telluride, Colo., the magazine reported on its Web site Saturday.

It was followed by a reception at a private mountaintop resort.

Moseley, 30, met Rich, 29, in high school, and the couple started dating five years ago and got engaged in April 2003, the magazine reported. It's their first marriage.

A two-time World Cup champ who won gold in freestyle skiing in the 1998 Olympics, Moseley was listed on People's list of Top 50 bachelors in 2002.

NEW YORK - For actress Lily Tomlin, the 9-to-5 workday sounds quaint these days.

The star of the 1980 film "Nine to Five" - about three women who turn the tables on their oppressive male boss - Tomlin said the world now "is just so pressured."

"Look at the generation we're creating, with Survivor and all that stuff," she told Time magazine for editions that hit newstands Monday.

"You're supposed to outwit everybody and double-deal," she said. "Nine to Five was trying to bring a female sensibility to the corporate world, which can really grind you down to nothing."

The 25th anniversary edition of the movie is set to be released on DVD this spring.
