NOTES

As Martin Mystère is an Italian series, the cast knows a lot about Italy.
In this case, the "niece of Mubarak" line is a joke about an Italian political scandal.

The full story is described in this Wiki page about Silvio Berlusconi's underage prostitution charges.
In a nutshell, when nightclub dancer Karima "Ruby" El Mahroug, a 17 year old Moroccan, was arrested in Milan for theft, she was immediately released after a call on behalf of the at-the-time prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, who claimed that "Ruby" was the niece of the at-the-time Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.
Underage "Ruby" was from Morocco while Mubarak was from Egypt: they are obviously unrelated, but the Italian Parliament supported this lie with their vote, protecting Berlusconi. Ironically, his lawyers claim that he never made that call.

All this means that Evelina, who is obviously talking about Martin's wife Diana Lombard, is calling her a prostitute.
