PRISONER OF LOVE. A guy who supplies food to delis doesn't often get a chance to spend a week on a private, one-acre island in a hundred-year-old Victorian. So despite the lack of air conditioning, TV, radio, Internet or even board games, says Bill Serviss 42, of Sayville, being on A&E's "Love Prison" -- premiering with his episode Monday night at 10 -- "was awesome! I had the time of my life!" That's probably because the 1989 Connetquot High School grad, who has a 16-year-old son, shared the Belden Island, Connecticut, abode with an attractive, 39-year-old divorced mom of two, Jeanne, a Californian whom he had been dating online for six months.
