Seriously when i first saw The Downfall Of NYC’s Hottest Vegan I thought it was a tragicomic vehicle for Reese Witherspoon or Rachel McAdam even. But it’s real.
Read the story for full details but basically it is about Sarma Melngailis a Virgo vegan, super-successful and fit as a fox, who seems to have come undone during Neptune opposite her Mercury in Virgo/Saturn over her Neptune and via a man, not even drugs.
She is now in prison, facing multiple charges, including grand larceny, tax fraud and violation of labor laws. The dude is facing even more charges, but they’re no longer a couple. This is not a love story.
It is a surreal tale complete with lines like this;
“He said he was a retired Navy Seal, shot in the line of action in the chest. I would always see what I thought were bandages, but he was just taping his man boobs down.”
“A delivery of non-organic, cheesy Dominoes outed them.”
“She was lonely because she was obsessed. She worked constantly, often sleeping at her office.”
“There are no gluten free, vegan, organic options in jail. She is having to make do with cucumbers…”
I am para-phrasing but you get the point. How could such a now person end up having to freak over the lack of contemporary nutrition options in a prison? A staunch anti-gambling advocate & icon of the raw foodie scene she ends up accused of taking off with the (substantial) profits from her healthy restaurant chain to fund this guys dodgy gambling/biz crap AND ordering Dominoes?
It is the latter that seems to be shocking the most people. It is also kind of haunting as i think heaps of peeps know what it is like to be grinding away, putting your all into a business you love and being literally unable to meet potential lovers; sometimes when you do lift your head up like an eager beaver on Tinder or whatever, the choices you make can be sub-optimal.
Of course there is a court case to come out of all this yet and Ms Melngailis will have the chance to tell her side of the story. It somehow seems so zeitgeist. And with Jupiter on her Sun-Mars in Virgo, likely to blow out into something bigger.
