Photo Special: Ethiopian Princess Who Stole Husband From Luann de Lesseps’ Of Real Housewives of New York

princess_kemeria_abajobir_2 The Ethiopian princess who stole away with Real Housewives of New York's Countess LuAnn de Lesseps' husband of 16 years has been revealed as Princess Kemeria Abajobir Abajifar. The Daily News has reported that Princess Kemeria, a descendant of King Abajifar of Ethiopia's Gibe region, is tired of being referred to as "the Ethiopian" and would like to be identified by her royal title -which trumps Countess de Lesseps'. After a close friend of the Countess revealed to the press that Count Alexandre de Lesseps had delivered his "Dear John letter" via email, Countess Luann told People magazine that she was separated from her husband and "It's been like a death. You go through anger, bereavement. It's really an end to a part of your life." It should be noted that Count Alex, 59, was raised in Khartoum, Sudan and in Tangiers, Morocco.

Color on the Cover: ‘Damned Yankee’ Alex Rodriguez Spill the Details

alexrodriguez-details-april2009cover After tearfully confirming that he used a "banned substance" to enhance his playing power, New York Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez appears on the April 2008 issue of men's style mag Details. "We live in a world right now where everyone's keeping score," Rodriguez says. "And it doesn't stop when the games end. . . . They've crossed over. And you have the Internet stuff, and all these phones. . . . It's very intense." On a lighter note, he even admits to taking the subway after home games in New York: "I have a hoodie on, but all it takes is one person and then you're done. But it's great. The fans get a kick out of it, I get a kick out of it. We talk about who's pitching tonight, and what we need to do. It's like being on sports radio. arod-details-magazine-april20081

Ga Ga: Zoe Saldana Makes a Fashionable Splash in Paris with Star Trek Costars

startrek-paris-zoesaldana-chrispine-zacharyquinto-apphoto.jpg The stars of the highly anticipated sci-fi prequel Star Trek stepped out for a group photo call in Paris, France Tuesday--but no one shined more than New York-bred beauty Zoe Saldana. One of our fave Ga Ga Girls (who's playing Lt. Uhura) hit the red carpet with director and producer J.J. Abrams and hunky costars Eric Bana, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine. Of her Trekkie following, she recently told Esquire, "I've already had a [fan] come up to the door of my house. And I had a driver for another movie who brought all of his Star Trek memorabilia with him. He opened the trunk and there was this shrine. He had stacks of pictures he wanted me to sign. He ended up being the nicest guy, but it definitely freaked me out at first."

VIDEO: President Obama Keeps Campaign Promise to Malia & Sasha with First Pup Bo

obamas-with-bo The First Puppy has made his White House debut on Tuesday among a gaggle of photogs snapping Portuguese water dog Bo Obama, the President, First Lady Michelle and First Daughters Malia and Sasha. "I love him," Malia Obama, 10, said of her 6-month old pup. "He's perfect." But scene-stealer Sasha, 7, called him out on his one flaw: "He doesn't know how to swim!" President Obama was obviously impressed with Bo--a gift from Sen. Edward Kennedy--said, "He's a star. He's got star quality." But no matter how intrigued, the president, when asked where Bo will sleep, answered, "Not with me."

Somalian Models Iman & Ralph Lauren Face Ubah Hassan Talk Being Black in Fashion

ubah-hassan-ralph-laurenubah-hassan-ralph-lauren-ad Somalian models Iman and newcomer Ubah Hassan, the spring face of Ralph Lauren, sit down with New York magazine for an intimate chat on their African roots, being black in fashion and her big break with Ralph Lauren. "I talked to young models and I asked them, ‘What is the most upsetting thing that is happening to you guys now?'" Iman says. "And singularly they said they would go to go-sees — especially when there is the fashion shows coming up — and they would say to them, ‘We’re not using black models this season.' Like it’s a category — like we’re not doing denim this season. It’s very upsetting." As for her moment with Ralph Lauren, Ubah said she went to an open call and the famed designer complimented her face. After the casting, she got a call that she was Ralph's new girl!

Star Trek‘s Zoe Saldana Talks Fashion, Dancing & the Dominican Republic in In Style Fashion Spread

zoe-saldana-star-trek-instyle-april2009-scan1 Star Trek beauty Zoe Saldana posed for a high-flying circus spread in the April issue of In Style (coincidentally their "color issue" ha!), where she discussed how growing up in New York and the Dominican Republic influenced her style. "I learned to embrace color, drama and flair," the actress, who plays Lieutenant Uhura in J. J. Abrams's much-anticipated prequel, said. "It's my nostalgia for a very important time in my life." Saldana also revealed her dancing roots (she got her start as a broke Off-Broadway dancer; and remember Center Stage?): "I got so much out of being a dancer. The stillness of it. The discipline. The dedication." "Clothes can send a powerful message," Saldana added. "You don't have to be on a movie set to tell a story. You can play a part on the red carpet or at a photo shoot." zoe-saldana-star-trek-instyle-april2009-scans
