In June, the co-founder of defunct fashion label Heatherette, onetime club kid Richie Rich, 44, allegedly skipped out on a $1,700 bill at the Times Square Westin with lingerie designer pal Chantelle Warr. (Pretty sure most of that is minibar.) The two bailed on the tab for the three-night stay and were arrested and hauled into court on a misdemeanor theft-of-services charge. They returned to a Manhattan court on Tuesday, but Rich left shortly after arriving and the judge issued an arrest warrant. Rich went back to court Friday morning to turn himself in, looking a mess: His mascara was smeared, his nail polish (blue) was chipped, and there were dark circles under his eyes, reports Page Six. But he seemed optimistic. “Fashion Week is going to be great this year,” he said. The judge ordered him back in court this week. Warr paid the outstanding bill, and the case against her will be tossed if she stays out of trouble for six months, prosecutors said. Rich, you’ll remember, launched Heatherette in 1999 with Traver Rains, and the label drew a celebrity clientele that included wowlebrity Pamela Anderson and Paris Hilton.
