Does Ivy Supersonic strike you as the sort of person who would have fallen victim to Bernie Madoff? Not so much? Perhaps that explains why her attempt to tape-record Madoff's sentencing yesterday didn't turn out so well and she got caught in the act. Ivy Silberstein, as she's known in real life, brought a "recording device" into the courthouse, a violation of the rules, obviously. But someone apparently spotted her and Judge Denny Chin ordered that court officers seize the device and delete the material before returning it.
What the self-described "fashion designer, entertainer, publicist, promoter, event planner, and animated character designer" was hoping to do with the recording isn't clear. She's a regular on Howard Stern's satellite radio show, so it could have been some sort of stunt for Stern.
Or maybe she's just losing her mind? This would be the same Ivy Supersonic, of course, who pleaded guilty two weeks ago to charges she used her stepmother's credit card without permission and also glued the locks of Noel Ashman's Plumm shut a while back as part of a long-running dispute with the club owner. But not before stripping down to a bikini on the steps of the courthouse to show off her 30+ tattoos first. Naturally.
It doesn't appear Silberstein stripped down outside the proceedings yesterday. Which is too bad, really. Madoff's elderly victims who'd flown in from Palm Beach for the sentencing could have probably used the diversion.
