Kristina Kovalenko, the Russian princess from the republic Kabardino-Balkar who, according to a New York Post article from 2010, "spent $6,500 on one lunch ... and thinks nothing of dropping $300 on a cocktail or blowing $8,000 for a night out," is still around. After divesting herself of her $7.1 million Lincoln Square condo last year, Kovalenko, who goes by the pseudonym Kristy Kingston when public documents are involved, apparently bought a three-bedroom, five-bathroom condo in 737 Park Avenue for $9.2 million. That apartment has now found its way back onto the market, just over a year later, asking $10,999,000. It is very cream colored, down the grand piano in the living room.
