Parker Posey

found romance with a local lawyer while the actress was here for five weeks shooting "Happy Tears."

Sources say Posey and attorney John Giordano have known each other for years, but only became romantic when Posey was shooting here. The movie also stars Demi Moore and Rip Torn.

Posey, 39, whose films include "Best in Show" and "Superman Returns," and Giordano, 33, a Moorestown High and Villanova grad who lives in Center City and works in Washington D.C., were spotted together talking with Gov. Rendell recently at Table 31, Georges Perrier's and Chris Scarduzio's new restaurant in the Comcast Center. They were also spied looking quite cozy at Amada (224 Chestnut). Yesterday we reached Giordano, who said only that he and Posey are "very good friends and we enjoy each other's company." Posey could not be reached yesterday for comment.

Canseco jokes dirty on '10'

Good thing Lori Wilson has a sense of humor. Jose Canseco said on yesterday's "10" show that when Wilson showed him a karate kick backstage, he could see she wasn't wearing anything underneath her dress.

Wilson laughed it off and Canseco quickly admitted he was only kidding and couldn't see anything. He appeared on the NBC 10 show along with the station's sports director, Vai Sikahema.

Canseco and Sikahema will be fighting in Gary Barbera's War at the Shore July 12, at Atlantic City's Bernie Robbins Stadium. The bout is promoted by Damon Feldman and Bobby Capone. Sikahema will donate his $5,000 purse to the family of slain Philadelphia Police Sgt. Stephen Liczbinski. Tix are $30-$100. Call 800-677- 8499.

Out and about

Danny DeVito, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson and the rest of the cast of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" showed up Monday at Share our Strength's Taste of the Nation at the Loews Hotel.

DeVito took the stage and started talking while emcee Brian Adoff was holding an auction. DeVito introduced the cast of the FX sitcom shooting in town this week. Actor Fred Savage was also among guests at the fundraiser, which benefits various local childhood-hunger charities. The "Wonder Years" and "Vice Versa" star, who had a beard, was not hanging with the "Sunny" cast.

Golfing for a great cause

Fox 29's Sharon Crowley will also participate, but won't be golfing in the June 17 event at the Whitemarsh Valley Country Club. Lograsso, at age 2, was diagnosed with cancer in both of his eyes.
