HEAR THOSE WEDDING BELLS? In Santa Monica, Calif., Lucy Lawless, 30, the leather-clad star of TV's "Xena: Warrior Princess," has married the show's executive producer. Lawless wed ex-Detroiter Rob Tapert, 43, on Saturday at a Santa Monica church, publicist Leah Krantzler said. Lest you forget, Lawless topped People magazine's list of Top 10 Trendsetters of 1998, released last month, played Rizzo in Broadway's "Grease" last fall while on a break from "Xena" and gave a memorable accidentally seminude rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" at a Red Wings playoff game last year. It was Tapert's first marriage and Lawless' second. She has a 9-year-old daughter from her first marriage. They were honeymooning Monday at an undisclosed location.
