'Fashionista Diaries' office manager arrested for larceny and forgery
UPI News Service, 06/05/2007
Authorities say an office manager for a New York fashion house, the location for a reality TV show, paid herself and co-workers $70,000 in unearned overtime.
The Manhattan District Attorney's office said Suzanne Filan, 31, was arrested Friday on several counts of grand larceny and forgery, the New York Post reported Tuesday.
Filan worked for Showroom 7 International, the setting for Soapnet's new "The Fashionista Diaries" reality series that will track six assistants for Estee Lauder, Jane magazine and Seventh House PR as they put together a fashion show for designer Charlotte Ronson. The show debuts in July.
Authorities said the woman bilked her employers of the money by forging checks for herself and others.
