Breaking News: Ethiopian Beauty Steals Count From Real Housewife of New York Countess Luann de Lesseps

luanndelesseps-real-housewives-of-nyc One of Bravo's Real Housewives of New York Countess Luann de Lesseps has been dumped via email by her longtime hubby, Alex, the Count de Lesseps. A close pal told the New York Post of the news broke by the New York Social Diary, "She got wind he was seeing somebody and he didn't answer her when she called. He finally sent her an e-mail saying he was with an Ethiopian woman in Geneva and he was serious with her." On Monday, the New York Social Diary item read:

"[Alex has] taken up with a beautiful Ethiopian beauty who is not only quite a bit younger than he but also quite a bit younger than his wife. In the meantime, the sixty-something count has slimmed down, tanned up and looks years younger, according to friends, which once again raises the age-old question: Ain't love grand?"

Breaking News: Andre 3000 Charged with Driving 109 mph in Atlanta

andre3000-arrested One of our fave style and music icons Andre 3000 of Outkast was charged with driving 109 mph in a 65 mph zone in suburban Atlanta early Saturday morning, according to the AP. The 33-year-old actor-designer-musician posted a $1,200 property bond pending a court date April 29, and said he was going so fast because he missed an exit and had to turn around. We're wondering if he was in a rush because of the "Green Light" with John Legend ("I'm ready to go right now....I'm ready to go right now")....We know, bad pun!

GIMME FIVE: The Stylish Women of the Barack Obama White House via Vogue

barack-obama-mensvogue-june-2008 The Obamas have covered hundreds of magazines, but the one publication that has stuck by Barack Obama throughout his political rise is Vogue. And while we love our President and the saturated coverage surrounding his claim to power, it's the women behind his White House that we're really intrigued with. Here are the Top 5 Vogue features on the stylish and strong women of the Obama administration: michelle-obama-vogue-sept-2007 1. Michelle Obama in September 2007: In its first feature on the would-be First Lady, Vogue dubbed the "truth-telling," outspoken Michelle Obama "The Natural." Unlike most campaign wives, Michelle didn't shy away from her independence as a person: "Work is rewarding. I love losing myself in a set of problems that have nothing to do with my husband and children. Once you've tasted that, it's hard to walk away." valerie-jarrett-vogue-oct-2008 2. Valerie Jarrett in October 2008: As senior adviser to Obama, Jarrett took center stage in Vogue, being dubbed "Barack's Rock". The Chicago businesswoman said of the couple: "Barack's mom was on food stamps for a while...Michelle's father was a blue-collar worker...And yet Barack and Michelle went to the best schools in the country! And instead of pursuing the corner office at a big law firm, they both devoted their lives to public service!" jill-biden-vogue-nov-2008 3. Jill Biden in November 2008: The mother of three, college professor and dedicated politician's wife posed with the women of the Biden family. "When I first gave her a hug," Michelle Obama said of the now-VP's wife, "I could feel that she was, like, real people. You know? You can sort of tell. She was sweet, down-to-earth and very open and honest, and I liked her right away. And now I just love her to death." desiree-rogers-in-vogue-feb-2009 4. Desiree Rogers in February 2009: Ringing a new era to the White House, the President's new Social Secretary made headlines for her impeccable taste: "[My purpose] is helping people visualize what the Obama presidency is about, the feelings Americans voted for—inclusion, transparency, embracing people you might never otherwise learn about—and also translating the splendor, that sweetness, that comfort of the White House to everyone." michele-obama-in-vogue-march-20091 5. Michelle Obama in March 2009: The cover read "The First Lady The World's Been Waiting For" but she rather be called "mom in chief." But no mom could deny her fashion icon status: "I'm not going to pretend that I don't care about it. But I also have to be very practical. In the end, someone will always not like what you wear - people just have different tastes."

fridaynightlights-nbc-directv One of Blindie's favorite TV series Friday Night Lights is officially coming back for two more 13-episode seasons, E! Online confirms. Like this season's arrangement, the next two seasons will first air on DirecTV and later on NBC. Yes, we non-DirecTV peeps will be sad to get the episodes later in the season, but it's better than being canceled!

"It would be great if we had another season."

Madonna Picks Out Second African Child, Malawi Girl Mercy James

madonna_david_banda Madonna is expected to arrive in Malawi this weekend to spend time with Mercy Jones, the Malawian girl she has picked to be her next adopted child. Even though she faced harsh criticism when adopting David Banda from Malawi, one of Africa's poorest countries, the 50 year-old singer forges ahead with plans to adopt again. Mercy Jones is 4 years old and comes from the same orphanage as Banda. Both of her parents are deceased but her grandmother Lucy Chekechiwa, 61, claims it had been agreed that she would take custody of Jones at the age of six and accuses Madonna of "stealing." “Why doesn’t this singer pick other children? It is stealing. I want to go to court, I won’t let her go,” Chekechiwa said. Madonna recently divorced film director Guy Ritchie and has two other children, Lourdes, 12, and Rocco, 8, in addition to 3 year-old Banda. PHOTO CREDIT: Reuters
