A former cast member on a lengthy-operating reality tv show was sentenced to prison Thursday “for stealing the debit card facts of a man identified dead from a drug overdose in his Manhattan apartment the morning right after hiring her as a prostitute in 2017,” the AP reports.
Shannade Clermont, who had the nickname “the Energy Princess” when she appeared through season 14 of the Oxygen series “Bad Girls Club,” appeared in federal court in Manhattan with her twin sister Shannon (“the Uptown Princess”), who also appeared on the reality show.
The AP reports that Shannade Clermont “received the sentence right after tearfully expressing remorse and asking for mercy.”
She is quoted telling U.S. District Judge Naomi Buchwald: “I take duty for my shameful actions. Words can not clarify the sorrow I have in my heart.”
In aspect by means of their appearances on the Television show, the twins, 25, amassed a huge social media following. “The twins have also appeared in music videos and have modeled for Kanye West’s Yeezy brand, appearing in the Yeezy Season six campaign,” the AP notes.
The report adds: “The defendant wasn’t charged in the death of a victim identified by police as James Alesi, and Buchwald mentioned she didn’t care that she engaged in prostitution. But the judge criticized her for not in search of assist when the victim passed out though she was with him — the outcome of what his household says was an accidental fatal overdose from cocaine laced with fentanyl.”
The judge is quoted telling Clermont: “When faced with a actual test of character, you chose to steal his debit card facts.”
