In Defense of Ali

The new issue of Page Six Magazine (which is now back as a quarterly) has an update on Ali Wise, the socialite/publicist who was arrested back in July for allegedly hacking into the voicemail of socialite/interior decorator Nina Freudenberger.

Not surprisingly, it hasn't been an easy few months for Wise, who faces a possible four-year prison sentence for her SpoofCard shenanigans. But she has plenty of friends who have rallied behind her, including ex-boyfriend Jason Pomeranc, Jennifer Meyer Maguire (wife of Toby, daughter of film mogul Ron), and longstanding defender Stacy Bendet, who, thankfully, is doing her best to keep the matter in perspective:

If someone like Ali Wise goes to jail, then our system is a disaster.
