MELANIE GRIFFITH's Spanish lessons will pay off this week (ends19JAN01) - when she flies to Spain to shoot a TV commercial.
The WORKING GIRL actress says she's keen to get back to work after her recent stint in a rehabilitation clinic to fight her addiction to prescription pain killers. She's keeping quiet about exactly what the advertisement is endorsing, but says she's delighted to be flying to Spain for the job. She says, "As 2001 gets going, so do I! This year is going to be a good one! I can feel it!" (SVD/WNWC/KW)
