Don’t you hate it when con artists take advantage of nice people? Well, allegedly, that’s what happened to former Soap star Victoria Rowell who found herself the victim of a crafty local con artist.

The former Young & The Restless star has been in the news recently due to rampant speculation that she might be joining the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

According to a concerned friend, Rowell met a man in Atlanta who goes by the aliases Jasper Rose, Jasper Hood and Prince. The friend said he passes himself off as a “celebrity wardrobe stylist” who claims to have worked with stylist Rachel Zoe. His client list supposedly included singer Monica, Amber Rose, Danity Kane, and others.

The friend said Rowell needed a stylist for a shoot and she trusted Rose/Hood with her American Express card to pull clothes for the shoot at high end boutiques. But during his shopping spree at Saks Fifth Avenue Club, he also pulled pieces for himself, racking up a bill of $30,000.

According to Rowell’s friend, the man was able to gain her trust by convincing her he also styled Monica for her album shoot in New York last month.

The friend said Rowell is doubly concerned because he had access to her home and he has her driver’s license information as well as her credit card info (she canceled the Amex card).

The friend said Rowell and her husband recently moved to Atlanta from LA. “Her being new to Atlanta and not really knowing anybody made Victoria an easy target,” she said.

She said Rowell is in the process of filing a police report but she doesn’t know the con artist’s real name.

Apparently, Jasper/Hood is aware that Rowell has been asking around about him which prompted him to tweet this yesterday:

    CHILE, if he aint every bit of FABULOUS, I Dont know who is :gay:

  • MsG

    I am a little surprised someone that has been in the business as long as her did not check up on his references. Him being a flamboyantly dressed gay man would not enough for me.

  • missy

    Why didn’t she look him up?………..I wouldn’t take someones word for it…..She should have looked him up…

    I mean in all of his pics. he has a “who gon check me boo?” face on….

    Who the hell is that trusting and who buys clothes for a photoshoot. I thought most were provided/borrowed.

  • missy

    Did he go to DRake and Niki’s school of pouting because he is being really extra…..

    But doesn’t he look like a skinnier version of Derek J…. :yes:

  • KaraZ

    Is this dude serious? how can they lie on you if the bills shoe that you purchased clothes on her card without permission? Again I ask, is this dude serious?

    As far as Victoria Rowell, as many established or semi established stylists as there are out her, why did you go with this dude? Are you one of those women who truly believe the more flamboyant a gay man is, the more style sense he has? Why didn’t she call anyone for references? I mean you gave him access to your credit card, you should at least het his social security number and government issued ID…

  • chase

    Man listen I’m not even from the A, I have never been to the A and I would not trust that fool w/ walking my dog… Sometimes looks are deceiving but at times it can tell u a lot and his looks tell me to go directly the other way and don’t stop. You don’t go giving your card to every person, that is foolish on her part.

    She saw him in those labels and thought he was the real deal. Rachel Zoe? Yeah right when have u seen Rachel working w/ or have working for her a brother… Man o man people will take anything you are feeding them and believe it is gourmet…

    I hate when people have that assumption as well. I also hated when Sheree (HWoA) asked her stylist how she should do a fierce walk. How do you ask a man how to be feminine with confidence? How would he know, he’s not a woman! Such a oxymoron to me. :shrugs:

    not always true. I know plenty of gay men who are not feminine and who are out & open about their sexual preference. I choose to believe that there’s just a small noticeable population of flamboyant gay men

    Somebody just asked me do I believe a certain weight loss program would really help them lose 30lbs. I’ve never tried that particular plan…but my deductive reasoning brought me to the conclusion that any and all of these “weight loss” programs will work. If they require you to cut back on what you eat and stress exercising at least 3 times per week.

    😆 at the last line. I have never worn a bikini. Any diet can work, but in using the word diet ppl get discouraged, why don’t they call it what it is ” a life changing alternative to being healthy. If we cut down on what we eat and exercise regulary we all could be fit.

    We do agree on how we can all be fit. But why so shy about a bikini? Personally, I have some skin discolorations so during my 20’s I refused to wear a bikini. I look back now with regret. If I work on my fitness this year, I’m wearing a bikini even I have to airbrush myself with some makeup! :lolol:

    I started exercising about 3 months ago after work, the sad part is that I don’t notice any weight loss, but the bmi seems to be alot lower, my clothes fit me better.
