Oh my, poor Sydney socialite Lisa Stockbridge.
I just love a high flying celebrity or socialite getting a slap back down to earth. This story reminds me of the high flying drug dealer that just happened to be a nephew of the high and almighty Ita Buttrose.
What pisses me off though is all those involved in her so called high society bullshit fake life happen to be SO SURPRISED…
Half of you idiots are probably packing shit as you very well know you probably purchased some goodies off her. I hope the cops were fully tuned in on each and every one of you.
Dare you order a pizza for the knock at the door that could be the day!
Her website suddenly disappeared on the day of her arrest but the following quote, beside a email link called “Get Connected” says a lot as far as I am concerned.

A POPULAR Sydney socialite allegedly led a double life supplying cocaine and ecstasy to clients in the city’s most exclusive suburbs.
When she wasn’t running her popular entertainment website Urban Society, police allege Lisa Lisa (Danielle) Stockbridge was dealing drugs – including a commercial quantity of ecstasy – in Sydney’s east.
Stockbridge, a 41-year-old from Kings Cross, had been under police surveillance for at least a month and was arrested at 9.20pm on December 11, court documents said.
A far cry from the glitzy red carpets, hot parties and fine dining she would be used to, the mother of a 20-year-old daughter is now languishing in the maximum security section of Silver-water Jail awaiting her next court date.
Police recovered $33,620 in cash during the arrest which they allege was the proceeds of crime.
Stockbridge has also be accused of selling cocaine in Darlinghurst between 7.15pm on November 14 and 7.25pm on December 11.
Court documents show on the same dates, she also supplied cocaine in Sydney and Clovelly.
She also allegedly supplied 270g of ecstasy between December 11 and 12 at Darlinghurst.
On top of the charge of supplying a commercial quantity of drugs, Stockbridge is facing a further seven charges of supplying or knowingly taking part in the supply of a prohibited drug and dealing with the proceeds of crime.
Urban Society staff members have not yet been formally notified of Stockbridge’s arrest, however they were advised they no longer had jobs just prior to Christmas.
The website’s editor, Camilla Gulli, wrote on Facebook on December 16 to notify her friends via social media that she was “resigning”.
“It is with a heavy heart that I resign as editor of Urban Society, after two-and-a-half long years,” she posted.
“Want to say that I love my team, who are some of the most resilient and talented people I know.
“Goodbye free dinners, I’ll miss you most of all.
“Hit me up for freelance work.” were they getting more than free dinners, or paying for the free dinners in other ways? Time will tell
A Sydney woman who worked as a contractor for Stockbridge and didn’t want to be identified, said she was in “complete shock” by the news.
“I had no idea until now,” she said.
“I honestly can’t believe it and would never in a million years have picked it.”
A media identity who was notified of the incident last week said: “It sounds like a script from a movie – I would never have believed it.”
A Sydney nightclub owner who has worked with Stockbridge in the past said: “Lisa is the last person I would have thought would (allegedly) do something like this.”
Another senior public relations figure said: “I am in complete shock, this is absolutely incredible and something I would never have seen coming – she is a mum for god’s sake.”
Stockbridge’s website was shutdown in December and her personal social media sites, which include Twitter and Instagram, have been inactive since the day she was arrested.
