The O.J. SIMPSON saga may end up with more books than the Old Testament. The latest scribe: PAULA BARBIERI, the girlfriend who stood by O.J. during his murder trial but then squeezed The Juice out.

Impressed by her "honesty and sensitivity," Little, Brown and Co. says it will publish her memoirs in October. No fee announced, but the New York Post puts it at $3 million.

Barbieri pitched Simpson over the side because, among other things, O.J. had made noises about selling photos of her and him to the tabloids. These days, her lawyer says, Barbieri is "studying the Bible a lot, going to church a lot, reflecting a lot." *** The show must go on: Comic BILL COSBY will keep a date tonight to perform in Palm Beach, Fla.

He's under fire for his arrest on charges of beating up a girlfriend and for divorcing Donna Peele after scant months of marriage. *** Stiffed: * For Christmas gifts, Hollywood's BRUCE WILLIS and DEMI MOORE handed out checks for $15 and $25 to the staff of the Manhattan building where they have a penthouse. But the workers returned the checks. Seems that the going rate in that part of New York is $50. (You think that's bah humbug? Neighbor STEVEN SPIELBERG gave nothing at all.) * On Monday night, DAVID LETTERMAN will celebrate 15 years in late-night television. To help prepare for the big bash, CBS asked Letterman's former network, NBC, for permission to use some clips from the old days. …
