Since Heatherette fell apart, Richie Rich has gone on to design his own line and collaborate with Pamela Anderson on an ecofriendly line. Last night at the Life Ball preview party, when asked if Heatherette would ever come back, he replied, "Well, I created Heatherette. It's not like working at McDonald's. I decided I didn't want to do it anymore, because the backers we had were basically assholes. I love what I do, I'm an artist. It's like being in a band. If the lead singer gets fucked over, you move on. I'm not mad at Traver, it's just that the people who backed us really weren't nice people. They took advantage of us in every respect."
