We already know that being a socialite is hard. And expensive. Former Lizzie Grubman sidekick and "New Jersey" socialite Dori Cooperman stands accused of larceny, forgery, and fraud after she allegedly altered and cashed a stolen $4,300 check.

When she's not getting daily foot rubs at the Four Seasons in Shanghai, Cooperman enjoys the bright lights of St. Tropez, Sardinia, and Aspen. Which could explain the need for cash. SocialiteRank added gravitas to her troubles this morning, speculating that Miss Cooperman simply needed to maintain her perma-tan. After heated debate, the site's giddy commenters decided that the resulting shade should be minted "Oompa Loompa orange."
