pigs

Remember Anna Gristina? Woman accused of, and imprisoned for, allegedly running a brothel (supposedly in connection with a Morgan Stanley broker) out of an apartment on East 78th Street? In the tussle was forced to send away “all but two of her seven rescue pigs” in order to cover legal fees? Over the course of her stay it was suggested that Gristina might leak the identities of her high-profile clients, though no names were never revealed. But that was before her beloved boards, and they place they call home, were thrust into the cross-hairs. And before one lawyer found out he’d messed with the wrong Madam. Read more »

Banning unsightly barbecues and violin practice at all hours of the night is one thing but no pigs? No menageries? No nude to semi-nude performances? Those are going to be several bridges too far for some million and billionaires previously interested in the property. Read more »

Who Wants To Adopt Anna Gristina’s Pigs?

Back in March, a woman named Anna Gristina was arrested for allegedly running a whorehouse out of an East 78th Street apartment, with plans to go global. In that time, we’ve learned a good bit about Gristina (who goes by Anna Scotland professionally), who currently remains incarcerated on Riker’s Island. For instance, at the time of her arrest, she was meeting with a friend and broker who was supposedly helping her line up financing to expand the venture (which she maintains was an upscale dating site), she paid her hookers well, and she was an animal lover. Emphasis on the past tense because apparently anyone can be an animal lover until push comes to shove and mommy needs money for legal fees. Then it’s good-bye lush accommodations upstate, hello slaughterhouse. Read more »

She was ready for the big time. Just the other day, in fact, Gristina/Scotland was sitting down at the office of her friend and business associate, a Morgan Stanley employee, to hear his plan for “expanding her operation through the Internet.” And then this happened.

“This year, my personal challenge is around being thankful for the food I have to eat. I think many people forget that a living being has to die for you to eat meat, so my goal revolves around not letting myself forget that and being thankful for what I have. This year I’ve basically become a vegetarian since the only meat I’m eating is from animals I’ve killed myself…[my] first kill was a lobster, which I boiled alive. The most interesting thing was how special it felt to eat it after having not eaten any seafood or meat in a while…on May 4…I killed a pig and a goat [by] cutting the throat of the goat with a knife, which is the most kind way to do it.”
