It continues to go from bad to worse to degenerate for aspiring NYC socialite Melissa Berkelhammer who has now been arrested after caught shoplifting $4000 worth of items at Fifth Avenue’s Bergdorf Goodman.
According to a report via pagesix the aspiring writer, reality star, socialite who has been down on her luck in recent times was nabbed stealing the following items:

Whether any episodes came to be filmed has yet to be understood.
Similarly the woman along with her mother came to be embroiled in a lawsuit with Park Central Hotel in Midtown where mother and daughter claim a valet swiped $80k worth of jewelry. An assertion that the hotel has assidiously denied.
The aspiring socialite has since been charged with grand larceny as a felony and criminal possession of stolen property.
