The newspaper further reports she was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and spent two and a half hours in custody before being released.The publication also notes she was warned previously, last October, about trespassing at that same residence.
It marks her first arrest. While she’s not been much in the public eye in the past few years, she was for a time, in the early and mid Aughts, in the height of fame. Moving from her native South Carolina to New York City and striking it big in the socialite scene.
For a brief time she was the star of reality TV series ‘High Society’ on The CW which chronicled her life as a socialite in Manhattan. She was so well known that after being name-checked on the hit series ‘Gossip Girl’ she made a couple of cameo appearances on the show. During these years, she was married to Topper Mortimer, but the couple has since divorced. Most recently her novel, ‘Southern Charm” was published, chronicling the story of a character from South Carolina who moved to New York City.
