THE EASIEST way to quash a rumor is to come clean with the full story. That's exactly what actress and model Miri Bohadana has now done. The 29-year-old from Sderot has long been asked if she ever plans to have a family, and the answer in recent interviews has always been in the affirmative - though a specific time frame was never given. Now one has. Bohadana has publicly announced her pregnancy, naming wealthy businessman Bebo Kubo, 55, the father. Kubo, who is separated from his wife, has been Bohadana's significant other for the past five years. He has three grown children, and is reportedly thrilled he'll be a father a fourth time. HE KEEPS on saying that he's going to resign, but fashion designer Gideon Oberson can't stay away from the runway or the limelight. Oberson will serve as one of the judges, along with Elimor Zilberman, fellow designer Tovele Hasson and TV host Gil Riva in a new reality show dedicated to making viewers more fashion conscious. The series will also give a boost to young designers competing to be named the show's best designer. The contestants include Helena Blaunstein, who manufactures under the Frau Blau label, Maya Negri, Ronen Farag and Karen Naftali. Modeling the designers' creations will be some of the women who inspired them: former Miss Israel Rana Raslan, singer and dancer Michal Amdurski, TV host Michal Zuaretz, actress Eliana Bakier and singer Iggi Waxman. The show is part of Channel 2's "Fashion Month" programming, which runs through the end of October and will culminate with awards for Israel's best dressed man and woman. WHILE ON the subject of fashion, international cover girl Bar Rafaeli has nudged Ninet Tayeb out of first place on Pnai Plus magazine's list of the 50 hottest Israeli celebrities. Rafaeli ranked third on last year's list. THE IDF is fairly easygoing on celebrities in uniform, but it's decided to take a firmer line with Agam Rodberg after the model and actress gave two interviews without asking permission. Rodberg has been barred from giving any more interviews until she completes her service in four months, though that hasn't stopped her from continuing to grace the pages of several publications simultaneously. She recently appeared on the cover of Signon magazine baring more flesh than is typically shown even on the beach, and there was a very sexy photo of the former soap opera star clad in a bikini in Pnai Plus two weeks ago. Rodberg's army service didn't stop her from ranking 11th on the magazine's hot celebrity list. Israeli-born psychic Uri Geller, whose telepathic abilities have turned him into a multi-millionaire, is looking for a successor. The famed spoon-bender and one-time confidante of Michael Jackson will soon be launching a TV show in which Israelis show off their own psychic powers.
