Ali Wise, Dolce & Gabbana's party planner and publicist and all-around-gal-about-town, was arrested Tuesday for hacking into the voicemail of interior designer and rival socialite Nina Freudenberger. Scandale! We have the criminal complaint.
Wise, 32, allegedly used a Spoofcard to bypass the security features on Freudenberger's voicemail, snooping on her from January to March of 2008. She was arrested on Tuesday night on felony charges of computer trespass and eavesdropping, and, according to the complaint, confessed to the arresting officers: "I used the Spoofcard to get into Nina's voicemails."
She was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court yesterday and has a court appearance scheduled in October. According to the New York Daily News, "Wise's breakup from hotelier Jason Pomeranc six months ago was fodder for media gossip," but they must mean the old-fashioned, word-of-mouth kind, because we can't find anything out there on their parting of ways (let us know if you can).
Freudenberger is a Munich-born decorator-to-the-socialites who once lived in an apartment painted entirely in a color called "dead salmon" and had a mechanic spray-paint a Louis XIV dresser with lacquer, according to Page Six magazine. We have no clue why Wise would want to listen to Freudenberger's voicemails, or why Wise would get caught for it more than a year after the fact. Do you?
Here's the complaint:
