Aspiring reality star and “lifestyle brand” developer Devon Fleming has run afoul of a New Canaan club which has filed a civil lawsuit saying she owes $6,500 in dues.
According to a complaint filed on behalf of the New Canaan Field Club in in Stamford, the organization is seeking $6,589.45 in fees and interest owed by Fleming.
Fleming said during an interview that her husband is the only individual listed on the club's account and that she would contact her lawyer.
"I'm not the financially responsible person on that account," Fleming told Patch.
Asked why she was the only person listed in the complaint, Fleming replied, "I have no idea."
The Field Club's managers and attorney, Stamford-based Joseph A. Maker, could not be reached for comment.
The suit alleges that Fleming “has been unjustly enriched by the receipt and use" of club services prior to Dec. 1, 2011.
Fleming, who has posted blogs on Patch, is the CEO and founder of multimedia lifestyle brand Devon Fleming LLC and the author of The Pink Book, a living guide for lower Fairfield County. According to a New York Times article published last summer, Fleming is the developer of a proposed TV show, "Wall $treet Wives."
Prospective members of the 55-year-old Field Club must be residents of New Canaan and obtain two sponsors to write recommendations, according to the organization’s website. The application process takes about four to six months and once accepted, members have access to tennis courts, aquatics, social events and youth programs, the website says.
