A local Tampa swimwear designer will get to visit the White House on Tuesday and hobnob with a number of high-powered women from all walks of life, including the First Lady, Oprah, and tennis great Billie Jean King.

Altrichia “A.Lekay” Cook, CEO of Allusions by A.Lekay Swimwear, was invited to Washington, D.C. for the inaugural “United State of Women Summit,” hosted by President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Senior White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett.

“You had to be nominated” to get invited to the event, Cook said. “I was totally blown away.”

Even though she won’t be speaking on a panel, Cook anticipates meeting other women who she describes as those “who don’t take no for an answer.” In fact, she calls them “bad ass women” who are change agents in helping women break through barriers.

Cook, 29, showcases, sells and distributes globally to countries in Europe. Her luxury swimsuits have walked the runway at New York Fashion Week and graced the cover of magazines like Cosmopolitan. In fact, pop idol Nicki Minaj wore a Cook swimsuit on that cover.

Her line of luxury, high-waisted swimwear was created to mask abdominal imperfections from child bearing.

Yet, Cook’s entrepreneurial success is just one aspect of what she wants to achieve. Cook also speaks at events ranging from empowerment luncheons to high school commencements.

“Through my efforts and activism in the community and through mentorship, I believe that I am fulfilling my life’s purpose as well as making strides to ensure that I am imprinting the lives of others (especially girls and women) and making powerful difference in our collective future,” she said.

The summit will focus on topics ranging from economic empowerment to violence against women to educational opportunities in the science, technology, engineering and math or STEM fields. Among the speakers at the two-day event will be feminist icon Gloria Steinem and actresses Patricia Arquette, Connie Britton, Mariska Hargitay, Debra Messing, Amy Poehler and Kerry Washington.

Kate Coyne, the executive editor of People magazine, is finally willing to tell tales on some big names like Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lopez.

But her new book, “I’m Your Biggest Fan,” isn’t spilling swill. Coyne is sharing those hard-to-forget moments from her long career as a star-struck celebrity journalist who sometimes got a little carried away.

There was that night, for instance, at an Emmy party, that Mariska Hargitay grabbed Julianna Margulies’ hand as Hargitay recoiled from Coyne.

“I’d like to say I’d never seen her look so shocked, but it was the same look she gets when she’s attacked on SVU,” laughs Coyne.

Five years before, Coyne had interviewed Hargitay, the beloved Detective Olivia Benson on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” for a Good Housekeeping cover story.

Hargitay had been so warm, crying several times throughout the interview as she revealed intimate details from her life. At one point, a delighted Hargitay told Coyne how much she wanted the reporter to become a regular at her game nights. She even insisted on getting Coyne’s cell number.

Coyne figured those game nights had to be celebrity-studded and was certain she’d fit right in.

Hargitay never called. That night at the Emmy party, Coyne cut through a crowd that included Tina Fey and Jon Hamm, to get to Hargitay and her good friend Margulies. She reintroduced herself and the chitchat was pleasant until .

“So how come you never invited me over to play charades?” Coyne suddenly heard herself demanding. The cackling laugh she followed up with had the panicked actresses backing away.

Hamilton fans looking for another way to feed their obsession, or simply hungry to read more about the musical’s origins, will be able to get their hands on Hamilton: The Revolution (or as creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda calls it, the “Hamiltome”) on April 12, in hardcover and audiobook.

While co-authors Miranda and Jeremy McCarter will narrate the lyric annotations and the book’s introduction, respectively, the prose sections will be read by none other than Law & Order: SVU star and Hamilton “superfan” Mariska Hargitay, EW can announce exclusively. At Manuel’s own request, Hargitay agreed to the project: “Mariska, in addition to being the #1 fan of the show, represents, to me, much of what Hamilton is about — tough, smart, and New York,” Manuel says in a release. “She’s an essential part of this city; it feels only right for her to narrate the story.” Manuel added, during his own recording session: “and she has a killer voice! I want to hear her telling the story.”

“I’m hard-pressed to express how thrilled and honored I am to do this,” Hargitay says. “Lin-Manuel’s Hamilton enthralls me, and to think that I get to play a part in telling the story of how this masterpiece came into existence, it’s really just a lot to take in.”

The downloadable audiobook edition of Hamilton: The Revolution will feature a PDF of the full libretto, while the CD edition contains an “extensive PDF of images from the print book.”

This project isn’t the only intermingling of Hamilton and SVU we’ve seen lately: Actors Leslie Odom, Jr. (who plays Aaron Burr), Anthony Ramos (who plays John Laurens and Philip Hamilton), and Daveed Diggs (who plays Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson) have all appeared on the long-running NBC drama alongside Hargitay.

Stay tuned for air dates 🙂

Three pilots were taped featuring guests Colin Farrell, Mindy Kaling, Mariska Hargitay and Dakota Fanning, Connick says. From the tests, a sizzle reel was assembled that has been used to sell the show. Among the stations that have signed on are the Fox Television Stations in 17 markets in a deal announced last October. It surprised many in the TV industry because it was long assumed that the NBC O&O’s would pick up Harry as a replacement for Meredith Vieira, which was recently canceled. Instead, the NBC O&O’s seem intent on expanding their local news production, leaving little or no room for a new syndicated show such as Harry.
