Fashionista Bans ‘Friends’ From Funeral Via Suicide Note
The fashionista who committed suicide on Wednesday, her 22nd birthday, left behind a suicide note that blacklisted five ex-friends from her funeral, The New York Post reports.
Ashley Riggitano leaped off the George Washington Bridge, leaving one last snub from beyond the grave, said authorities. Her multi-page memo, which also cited her bouts with depression, read: “To any funeral, these people should not be allowed based upon words and actions.”
One of the banned frenemies included a woman who left Riggitano this message on Facebook: “Go try to kill yourself on Xanax again, you unstable loser. Go f–k yourself and never speak to me again.”
Others who were blackballed via Riggitano’s note—which was found in her Louis Vuitton handbag—reportedly include her business partner Victoria Van Thunen, classmates Teresa Castaldo and Beth Bassil and another woman named Samantha Horneff.
Along with the note, authorities also discovered Adderall and other prescription drugs in the Louis purse.
Riggitano had served as an intern for fashion designer Alex Woo in New York, as well as brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Nicole Miller.
